    Re: Time will Tell

    I say put the baby's needs first. The WHO recommends nursing "well into the second year." Why push the baby if she's not ready and still greatly benefiting from the nutrition?

    Re: Depressed after Dr. visit

    That's true, last night I woke up every hour.

    Re: Depressed after Dr. visit

    Why won't co-sleeping work? I've had a full nights sleep every night from the beginning because of co-sleeping. I don't know how any mammas (or babies) survive without it.

    Re: Blowouts

    Oh no! Never buy anything Gerber! Everything they make is cheap and doesn't work in my experience!!

    Re: Blowouts

    I recommend cloth, too. We still experience the occasional blow out, but not nearly as often as with disposables, and they are less severe when they do happen. As far as convenience goes... I use...

    Re: Sleepimg-how much is normal?

    Sounds normal to me. Some days my girl will sleep 20 hours and somedays only twelve. From what I've read 12-20 is fine. As long as she's happy and healthy... but in my experience babies can be very...

    Re: little sleepyhead

    My girl was like that for the first couple weeks. I would wake her up after four hours, but she would have gone longer. After the first two weeks she started waking up every three to four hours,...

    Re: A lot of questions..

    My nipples were in terrible shape the first week, though I was told by several nurses that the latch was good. It's a very sensitive area and takes time to toughen up and heal. I also had a painful...

    Re: Fussy...

    I agree with juliana99.

    My girl is eight weeks old and started this fussing-at-the-nipple business a couple weeks ago (after a major growth spurt). It seems like tummy discomfort sometimes. There...

    Re: Possible foremilk issue--help appreciated!

    Maybe she prefers one side because she is more comfortable in that arm. Babies can be silly like that. I don't think nursing from only one side is an issue. It seems common. Think how it would be...

    Re: Possible foremilk issue--help appreciated!

    I had a green poo issue until I cut dairy out of my diet, too. But she also had bloody poo. Now she has green poo about once a day, but not that yucky green. My baby also fusses at the nipple a lot...

    Re: Pooping while feeding

    This sounds like my 7 week old. But it is just at bedtime. There is so much fussing and grunting and letting go and re-attaching and spitting-up. So I carry her around and scrunch her legs and roll...

    Re: I'm so happy!!!

    Congratulations! I am the first in my family too, and so glad that I can help my sister try breastfeeding with her second one. The more we nurse, the more we can help the other gals out there who are...

    Re: Constant Feeding Helo

    My newborn started feeding constantly at two weeks, and now at seven she is still at the breast all evening. But I have my nursing chair set up with my knitting and the essentials, so I can be...

    Re: Human Dummy

    My baby is the same age and will nurse for hours continuously in the evening. I spend all evening sitting at the computer or reading a book or knitting, because these are the things I can do while...

    Re: Poop frustration

    My girl looks like she's going to burst blood vessels in her eyes when she poops! But if you think about it, liquidy poo doesn't give the muscles anything to "grab" onto. Plus babies are often lying...

    Re: BF issues 11-day old

    My nipples hurt like crazy for over a week, even though I was told the baby had a good latch. They are still tender, but not painful. Lanolin really helped with the dryness and cracking. I reapplied...

    Re: NEED HELP for BB day 25

    Sounds exactly like my 6-week-old. She nurses constantly. Sometimes I will carry her around if she is fussing at the nipple. It seems to be what she needs. She will fall asleep, but wake up as soon...

    Re: Did your dr know much about BF?

    Breastfeeding has been going really well for us, so I haven't discussed it with baby's pediatrician. At her one month visit he told me that letting her nurse for more than twenty minutes was forming...
