  1. Re: 4 month old pulls off one breast constantly (not content

    I've had quite a few plugged ducts, and in my experience they affect how mom feels but don't change at all how baby nurses.

    Since she's happy on the other breast, is there any chance she could...

    Re: Hypothyroidism and nursing

    Argh, I had this whole long post and my stupid iPod lost it :/ Anyways, I have hypothyroidism and take Synthroid. There is one other option that you may want to research--desiccated pig thyroid. It's...
  3. Re: Does frequency of letdown correlate with milk supply?

    I dont think there is any correlation. My son is ten months old but I've never felt a single letdown. My supply is fine and I've even dealt with oversupply and over active letdown, but I've never...
  4. Re: 5 month old wakes up to 8 times a night - trapped wind?

    Sorry, one more thing -- any chance she has an ear infection? The head scratching made me wonder that.
  5. Re: 5 month old wakes up to 8 times a night - trapped wind?

    P.s to me those 4 and 3 hour stretches of sleep do sound ideal -- I haven't gotten one of those for around four and a half months! Mine is up probably 3-5 times from 10pm-6am. I think most babies...
  6. Re: 5 month old wakes up to 8 times a night - trapped wind?

    My LO is currently 8 months old, and a couple months ago he had a phase sort of like that where he would thrash and turn his head and not settle. I'm still not sure what it was, but it passed fairly...

    Re: I don't know what to do

    For what it's worth, my LO started nursing more frequently as he got older. He nursed every 2.5 hours as a newborn, but now is 8 months old and for probably four months has been nursing every 1.5...
  8. Re: Weird Fussy Breastfeeding behavior in 3 month old

    Baby doesn't sound congested or have little crusties around his nose, does he? Mine is a little older but does that face rub when he's congested and having trouble breathing. Could explain the...

    Re: Baby suddenly not gaining

    I can't grab the link right now, but I think the Kellymom site has a page that talks about average weight gain for breastfeed babies....it's fast at first, then drops significantly at four months and...
  10. Re: EBFing 5wk old...getting diff opinions from LCs + ped

    My baby went through a month of evening scream times at that age and wouldn't nurse either... two things that helped:

    1. When I offered him the breast, I would say out loud "it's here if you want...
  11. Re: Falls asleep nursing but wakes when I put him in the cri

    I have a six month old and we nurse to sleep, and I have definitely noticed he's been sleeping more lightly lately and wakes frequently if I'm not right there, and thus needs to get nursed back to...
  12. Re: How to encourage nursing when awake?

    I'm sorry you're having so many problems! My little guy just turned four months and during the past couple weeks has gotten horribly distractible. He often will only nurse for 2-5 minutes during the...

    Re: conceiving pp

    If you're at all worried about it, I would just get a home pregnancy test and find out--that can tell you more definitively than we can. ;) Most women don't get fertile again that quickly, but I do...
  14. Using lecithin to prevent plugs?

    My little guy just turned three months recently, so I'm moving up to the new section. :)

    This week I had a clogged milk duct for the fourth time in three months. They aren't in the same place...

    Re: Gaining to fast?

    Are you exclusively feeding him at the breast, or using bottles too? If you're only feeding at the breast, don't worry about over feeding because baby can control how much he eats in a way he can't...

    Re: Need help and confused

    I know different moms respond to pumps differently, and our babies are way more efficient than pumps, so it's not a good idea to judge your milk supply based on pumping production. I think too many...

    Re: Nighttime Help

    I've heard of the 4 month sleep regression, which was the first thing I thought of when I read your post, but my guy is still a bit younger than that so I can't provide any more info than Google can....

    Re: I need help desperatly! urgent!

    I agree with bwfmom -- sounds like she might prefer the flow in one breast over the other. I think that happens a lot; my little guy preferred the left breast for a while because he got more out of...

    Re: I need help desperatly! urgent!

    If she's going through a growth spurt, it's also possible that she could be really fussy for a day while she tries to bring up your milk supply to what she wants. Your body will adjust and make what...

    Re: I need help desperatly! urgent!

    When you said in the initial post that she cries when you take her off the breast, I wonder if that has nothing to do with being hungry, but is just because she wants to sleep very close to you! At...
  24. Re: 5 week old sleeping long stretches

    My little guy slept one or two 3 hour stretches at that time too. As long as he nursed frequently during the day, I didn't worry about it. Like yours, his wet diapers and weight gain were good. My...
  25. Re: LO refuses to nurse during the day

    I am so sorry... It's so hard when they refuse what we know will comfort them and give them what they need! My little guy sometimes screams at the breast when he's overtired. I found that I need to...
