    Re: Shield to breast..How?

    We used a shield too for a little while. Have you tried letting her latch and feed for a while, so she's not so hungry, then slipping it off and seeing if she might latch then?
  2. Re: Pulling off and getting fussy when nursing

    My LO is doing the same thing. I have had success in the past two days by pushing her evening feed to a little later (so is truly is hungry), staying very calm when she refuses to latch (which is...

    Re: Doc orders formula

    I would second what other posters have said and either rent a scale or go in for another weight check.
    My LO was a preemie and at her first pediatrician visit the nurse weighed her as 10 ounces more...

    Re: Is this a nursing strike?

    :hello
    Update - tonight went very well. We took her for a walk to push out bath and bedtime. She took a 5 min nap in the stroller, had her bath, then after just a little crying and arching she...
  5. Re: Witching Hour? - Refusing to Nurse! :( HELP!

    I'm starting to think the previous poster is right - I'm having the exact same issue with my LO right now too (see my post "Is this a nursing strike"). I originally thought that maybe my LO was too...

    Re: Is this a nursing strike?

    I'm don't think that she has any teething or ear pain - how do I determine if that's the problem?
    I spoke to my LC this morning and she too is at a loss for what the problem could be. The only thing...

    Re: Is this a nursing strike?

    She does have bottles as I'm back at work. She's been having bottles since birth as she couldn't BF at first (preemie) so I honestly don't think it's that.
    She has fussed at a couple of feeds today...

    Re: Is this a nursing strike?

    I was afraid that this might be her choosing the bottle over me. I too would go to the ends of the earth to make sure she gets BM, but if anyone has any ideas on how to get her to 'stay' on the...

    Is this a nursing strike?

    Help!
    After having a preemie baby at 32 weeks, and taking almost 2 months before I could BF her exclusively, my now 4 month old is now refusing to BF for the last feed of the day.
    It started about...

    Bottle Nipple Question

    I am BF-ing and also bottle feeding EBM and have a question regarding bottles. When do you know to switch to the next nipple flow-level? My baby was a preemie, so we have been using Dr Brown's...

    Re: Why can't I fill her? Any ideas?

    Update time.....

    We have had a painful few days. I spent yesterday just holding my LO after each BF session - to see how long she would last between feeds. The longest she lasted was one hour and...

    Re: Why can't I fill her? Any ideas?

    OK, so we tried offering the breast again after the initial BF, then crib process......and it wasn't really effective. She latched back on, but just lay there pacifying herself with it. I tried all...
  13. Re: Preterm infant - supply/latching questions

    How long have you been pumping for (is it three weeks)?
    For the first few weeks of pumping (and I did the same as you, every 3ish hours day and night) I got an ounce or two from each side. My baby...

    Re: Finger Feeding Questions/Concerns

    I can't comment on finger feeding as we have not tried that, but just wanted to let you know that my baby quite often opts for the 'easy' option of taking a bottle feed, rather than BF-ing.
    I'm sure...

    Re: BFing help questions

    I think there are two things you could try:

    1) use the nipple shield on the side you are having problems with. That way, you can keep BF him - and get him used to feeding from your 'bad' side. My...

    Karen - Thanks for your post too (we must have been posting at the same time as I only just saw your reply!)
    I'm working with a LC who is an RN in the NICU, and also an IBCLC. I haven't spoken to...

    Re: Why can't I fill her? Any ideas?

    Thanks for the advice.
    I always do breast compressions to keep her going when she is BF - so that does work to extend the amount of time she is feeding.
    I'm so sleep deprived that I'm trying to...

    Why can't I fill her? Any ideas?

    My 32 weeker (now almost 39 weeks) has been trying to BF pretty much since birth, and while she is now doing much better at latching-on (she doesn't always latch, but is getting better) - which is...

    Re: one-sided nipple pain

    I have the same problem too. My LO nurses fine on one side, but I get pain on the other (and have the blanching and flattening of the nipple). I have to work really hard on her latch on that side...
  20. Re: right breast bigger for over a week

    My left breast is bigger than my right, but surprisingly, the smaller breast produces MORE milk. I know this as my LO is a preemie and can't exclusively breastfeed yet, so I still pump milk for her....
  21. Re: Breastfeeding Help & Support Needed for 32-weeker

    Thanks for your advice. I think I'm going to try giving a little bottle before BF, then see if she will latch (and ulitmately settle after BF). I'll let you know how that goes.

    We are doing better...

    Re: nipple shield question

    I believe that you should use the shield in the best way that suits your individual needs.
    We are using one too - my baby is a preemie and doesn't always 'know' how to latch. Some days we use it...
  24. Re: New and need help please - ready to give up

    PPD - which doctor can help?
