  1. Re: Mom of 25-weeker....just home from NICU...please help!

    I really can't answer your question, but have you asked the NICU drs or nurses? It does seem like such a nipple would exist. Good luck to you-my DS had feeding troubles when we first brought him home...

    Re: Birth control pill

    I have tried Fenugreek, and it never seemed to make a difference. I think it works for some and not others. As far as the POP goes, I have to think it's responsible for the dropped supply since...

    Birth control pill

    Hi,
    I am an exclusive pumper due to the fact that we had to supplement when my DS was 3 weeks old and he got attached to the bottle. I tried EVERYTHING and nothing helped. Anyway, my DS is now 7 1/2...

    Re: can't pump at work - will I loose my milk?

    I have a friend that gave her baby formula during the day while she was at work and nursed when she saw him. She was able to nurse for over a year. Her son is now 20, so I think she did it b/c...

    Re: Pumping Full time-keeping milk supply

    I had a lot of problems and now pump exclusively w/ my 7 1/2 month old. I do supplement w/ some formula but he gets a lot of breastmilk. I'm thinking of stopping when he's 10 months, just b/c I'm...

    Re: Going back to work..need support

    I teach also, and wanted to offer my support. My DS was born in late April so I was very lucky to spend months w/ him.(He was also a few weeks early.) Unfortunately, I had to spend the whole time...

    Re: What to freeze baby food in?

    Everything you said seems fine to me. I reuse the bags. I can't see how it would be bad.

    Re: When to start dairy?

    My DS gets whole milk yogurt every day. (about a tablespoon or so) My pedi said it was good for his age (71/2 months). We do not have a history of allergies though.

    Re: poops and solids

    My DS is 7 1/ 2 months old, and now that he consistently gets solids once a day, he does seem to poop more often, more like every 2 days instead of 3 or 4 like before.

    Re: Breastfeeding emergency

    I've been in your shoes and know exactly how you feel. I tried for 5 months to get my ds to nurse and was not successful. I just pump for him now and supplement w/ formula. I was so intent on getting...

    Re: Beating myself up - I am my worst critic...

    I've had to supplement with formula everyday-it's NOT the end of the world. Don't stress out about it. I did at first too, but it's not worth the worry.
  13. Re: How do I start baby-led weaning for my formula fed baby?

    You should bottle fed first, then offer solids. I'd start w/ offering once a day (applesauce, bananas, avocado), then 2 x a day at about 8 or 9 months. There's no need for a schedule. HTH!

    Re: low-fat yogurt?

    I think they really need whole fat until they're 2 for brain development. I think it's better to go non organic than fat free. Also, call the store manager to try to get whole fat organic back. If...

    Re: When is bfing not possible?

    My DS was small and jaundiced and would not nurse well (kept falling asleep) so I exclusively pump now (he's 7 months). Of course, before pumps, we would have done things differently. Maybe he would...

    Re: Frustrated

    I had a lot issues w/ b-feeding after supplementing, and I started just pumping after 3 weeks. It's a pain, but at least he's getting breasmilk. I got tired of struggling w/ him to b-feed.

    Re: dairy question

    My dr said 6 months. I've been giving it to DS and he loves it. I get whole, plain, organic and add fruit. Yogurt is diff from milk, since the process to make it breaks its proteins down. I'd stay...

    Re: Questions....

    I made applesauce by just peeling and coring the apples, boiling, pureeing, and adding cinn and nutmeg-no sugar. It made the house smell great and he loved it.

    Re: YoBaby

    That's what I planned on doing, but since I was just beginnning to introduce yogurt, I figured I'd get the little cups. I do plan on making my own now.

    Re: Pumping and Milk Supply

    I know how you both feel. I'm in the same boat. I think as long as they get some breastmilk they have the health benefits. Also, it's most crucial when they are very young, so we're all in the clear....

    This is why I could never successfully use the SNS. Either he sucked from it like a straw or it messed up his latch. I'm sorry I can't give any advice. Maybe you can see a LC? Seeing someone in...

    Re: So Confused - Can You Help?

    Your supply seems fine. I know moms who can't pump more that an ounce and who don't have supply issues. I think as far as sleep goes, they're always changing the rules. I know my 5 1/2 month old is....
