    Re: Only 3 days and this!

    Sounds like a latching problem. I am not in La Leche League (yet) but these ladies can provide all kinds of sugggestions about proper latching. Check your local hospitals/clinics for lactation...

    Re: Can you guys help?

    Sorry I don't know how to relactate but I have heard and read of countless women who do it successfully. I just can't help but think that we are made to do this and so our bodies don't give up on it...

    Re: why I love breastfeeding

    We have tinted windows in the back seat and the way back which makes it private and easy on her eyes. It's almost nicer than home because we are less interrupted!

    Re: Poly-Vi-Sol ?

    Here's the same response i gave on an earlier inquiry about Poly-Vi-Sol:

    Our doc prescribed the same thing for our LO, particularly since it's winter and very little sunshine (vitamin D). He told...

    Re: Poly-Vi-Sol ?

    I'd call the doc and verify what he/she means by "a drop". I can't imagine a physician prescribing "a drop" of anything because it isn't a measured amount. Our doc prescribed the same thing for our...

    Re: hard day

    Hang in there. It isn't easy. The good news is that it does get easier. If baby needs to be held/cuddled, breastfed or comforted, go ahead. You won't spoil your LO at this age or anytime soon for...

    Re: Spoiling Child?? Help!

    It's not really funny that your mom is bothering you with such, and I sympathize coz my mom says the same things at times and it irritates the bejeezus out of me. But if I may inject a bit of levity,...

    Re: Young Mother Dies of Yeast "Thrush"

    Make sure it isn't something else. If it is, it's being treated like thrush when it needs to be treated like something else. Either way, it must be tough.

    I was always jealous that guys get to...

    Re: Baby is crying while nursing

    What she said. Burp. (I haven't learned how to do the quote thing yet). what you described sounds a LOT like what we went through, and burping, once or twice during a BFing session fixed it.

    After...

    Re: Sorry if TMI

    One more thing . . . you've done great by BFing for six months, and either way, it's your prerogative to stop or to continue. Just don't make yourself feel guilty unecessarily no matter what.

    Re: Sorry if TMI

    Gut-level honesty here. I may catch a lot of flack for saying this, but if it were a decision I was having to make, I would take the undeserved, undue pressure/sadness off of myself by doing this:

    You are not selfish -- far from it. You're normal for feeling exhausted and frustrated and a loving mother for giving it your best shot at BF. I'm so sorry your DH doesn't empathize. At times mine...

    Hang in there -- I wrote in several weeks ago when I felt insane and one lady told me that I was amazing simply for BFing my baby. So are you -- don't underestimate what you're doing for your child....

    Re: Baby will NOT go to anyone!!

    You're not alone in this and I know you'd love some time to yourself (and need it too). My LO is 11 weeks and only mommy or daddy will do. And sometimes only mommy, and I'm one of those who...

  21. Fussy at nipple, 'snacky'-style feeding, possibly not getting hind-milk

    Too many 'symptoms' are confusing me as to what changes I need to make, if any:

    Lately (last week or so) my 4-wk-old daughter started becoming fussy at the nipple. She fidgets, squirms some too,...
