    Thanks! That was so interesting to read. Can't believe after combing through Keyllmom several times that I missed this fascinating page!

    Re: Time of day?

    I wasn't wondering if it's OK to give. I figure it's fine. But I'm curious as to HOW the milk changes over these 5 months.

    Re: Tongue tie/lip tie

    Here's our story. From the beginning I always had very painfully sore nipples. Sometimes they were cracked. My baby never enjoyed eating. Originally, my friends and family members convinced me that...

    Re: Time of day?

    Right, so that's what I do, but I found two frozen bags in my mom's freezer from when my baby was a month old. I was pumping by her house then and never brought the milk home with me.

    Re: Time of day?

    Yeah, I've heard that night milk, for example, has melatonin to help baby sleep better. I once read an article talking about pumping during the day so dad can give a bottle at night while mom sleeps....

    Re: Is this teething?

    Lol, my son had a five month fussies too :) (now he's six months).

    Another possibility is a growth spurt. My son had one at about 4 months. He had tons of extra nursing, much less sleeping and...

    Re: Not Able to Pump Enough Milk

    I do this and it helps: When milk stops coming out during pumping, I do compressions to remove any milk that will still come out. Then I remove the pump from my breasts and stimulate the nipples a...
  8. Re: Newborn spits up during the day and NOT night

    I do patting on the back. I sit my baby up on my lap, use my right hand to hold his waist, and the left hand to tap his back. I think babies will spit up if they have too much inside their stomachs,...
  9. Re: Newborn spits up during the day and NOT night

    I'm not sure about why your baby only spits up by day but I see a similar thing with my baby who doesn't frequently spit up but when he does, it's always by day. At night I don't even burp him and...

    Re: Bottle worries

    Just wanted to tell you I've been there and done that. My baby refused the bottle for the first feeding of the day I left him with a babysitter when I went back to work. By the end of the day he had...

    Re: 3 month old hardly ever poops!

    Maybe a growth spurt? I know there's probably no research for that but I always found my baby's poop amount decreasing just before a growth spurt. Could be random though! As long as consistency is...

    Re: milk supply help

    Does your baby finish the right side quickly and or do you hear less sucking there? Otherwise, it may be a pump issue - try reversing the right and left sides and see if it makes a difference.

    My...

    Re: Flange too large or too small?

    I used the larger flange and don't see much of difference, except that it IS easier to center the nipple in the middle so for that alone I guess it's worth it.
  14. Re: Quantity of milk to send to daycare?

    I replaced the valves already but not the membranes. I can try doing that tomorrow. I did read somewhere that pumping output decreases with time, so I thought that's what's supposed to be happening....
  15. Re: Quantity of milk to send to daycare?

    yup, he nurses pretty often: 9:30 (nurse), 11 (bottle), 2:30 (bottle), 3:30 (optional-finishes the little left over from previous bottle if there is) 5:30/6 (nurse), 8 (nurse), 10:30 (nurse), 12:30...
  16. Quantity of milk to send to daycare?

    My baby is 5.5 months old. I know that the amounts shouldn't really change over time before 6 months, but here's the deal: I always used to send like 10 ounces for the 8 hours of separation but he...
  17. Re: Which Avent nipple seize for my Baby

    I use the newborn flow and my baby is 5.5 months old! I was recommended by my LC to not go up to the next level (faster flow).
  18. Re: Bottle brands known to support breast feeding?

    My baby uses Avent Natural with the newborn flow nipples (he's 5 months). He was very picky with the bottle situation in the beginning but thank god he takes these.

    Re: Flange too large or too small?

    So the pain went away by today. I think it was my son who was causing it with his new, stronger, way of eating since he got his tongue tie released on Monday :) However, it IS hard for me to center...

    Just wanted to tell you that the same thing happened to me now, also when my baby is 5 months. Same symptoms you describe. My milk also "regulated" at about 3 months - which is when I stopped feeling...

    Re: Flange too large or too small?

    Can anyone advise on this? I thought mine fit ok but yesterday and today they started feeling a bit sore around the base of the nipple. Here's a video of how it looks while pumping:

    Re: Sore breast but no lump..

    I found that firmly massaging the lump area towards the nipple, right after nursing, helped me the most. Firmly press the hard area with the heel of your hand and keep it depressed while moving...

    Re: I need words of encouragement

    I wonder if he really does eat while you're away? Perhaps the daycare just TELLS you that so you'll leave her alone ;) I know people who'd do that.

    Re: Can't always pump at work

    By the way, your baby is still young and sleeping patterns will change. Even if she's sleeping a big stretch now, she might not in a month or two. My baby slept for 6 hour stretches from 7 weeks to...

    Re: sore/painful nipples

    The soreness could be normal but it could also be because of an improper latch. Maybe you can have a lactation consultant have a look at your baby and observe a feeding? Regarding the lump, your...
