    Vomiting

    My daughter is 6 weeks old. We haven't had many issues getting started nursing. However, this is now about the 7th time she's vomited a large amount of milk. This has been sporadic over the past...
  2. Re: What if I stop pumping at 12 months?

    Thanks everyone, very reassuring! Baby and I are not ready to stop nursing--but I am so sick of the pump.

    Re: No Weight Gain

    I guess just to chime in from the other side of things, some babies follow a lower end growth curve, but it sounds like your baby is falling off of his curve. Have you printed out a WHO growth curve...
  4. What if I stop pumping at 12 months?

    My son is 9 months old. I work full time and would love to ditch the pump at 12 months (gradually of course). Does anyone have experience with this? Will I still be able to nurse in the morning and...

    Nursing strike while on vacation

    My son is almost 6-mo-old. He's in daycare or with my mom when I work. Within the last 3 weeks we've started solids. I am fairly certain that my mom and daycare are feeding solids, then a bottle...

    Re: Can't get LO to eat during day

    No solution, but we're having the same problem with my almost-6-mo-old. He nurses fine at night, but the minute the sun comes up and there are things to do, he won't nurse. This also coincided with...

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, I work 8-5 and pump 12-15 oz.

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    It sounds like your mom is overfeeding. Baby should be eating 1-1.5 oz per hour. So assuming that baby eats every 3 hours, 3-4.5 oz in a sitting. Then for the last feeding, you should try to nurse...

    Re: Baby fusses at breast after work

    I've been back at work for about 2 months now, and DS frequently fusses when I show up at my mom's to pick him up and want to nurse him. It's at his usual nursing time (after he wakes up from a nap)...

    Re: Reversing "Reverse Cycling?"

    Glad/sorry to hear there are other people going through this. DS is almost 4 months, so it sounds like we may be in for a few more months of this. We are already cosleeping, and I think this might be...

    Reversing "Reverse Cycling?"

    I'm looking for suggestions or wondering if anyone has been through something similar.

    Congratulations on the baby, and it sounds like you are really committed to this. Stay strong, it is so hard in the first weeks! I felt the same way you did when we had to give my son formula at the...

    How much in a bottle?

    So I am 9 days away from returning to work, and trying to figure out how the first day is going to go. I think I probably have 50-60 oz in the freezer, and am going to start pumping twice a day after...

    Re: Stool and hindmilk

    It seems like the poop change with too much foremilk is frequent, green, frothy stools that are watery. So if you are having the opposite problem, it's probably not from an imbalance. That being...

    Re: Green Poops Equal Oversupply?

    We are having the same issue with green poops. I know that I don't have an oversupply of milk, and the poops aren't foamy. I got sick about 10 days ago with some type of gastroenteritis, and baby has...

    Re: Diarrhea, very watery poops?

    DS is 5 and 1/2 weeks, and this is what his poops are like. I wasn't worried, just assumed it was normal. He's gassy, but I also don't burp him at night because I don't want to wake him up. I just...

    Does your baby make any sleepy cues during the day (yawning, rubbing eyes, eyelids looking heavy or shutting for brief periods)? Sometimes my son seems to have trouble falling asleep. I know he's...

    Re: Nursing while working

    Can you use a cover to latch on, and then get rid of it until he's done? Or even wearing a loose sweater, a jacket, or using a light burp rag to cover up while he's latching on. thats really the...

    My son is 2 weeks old. We initially had some latching on and supply issues, both of which seem improved. He's latching on well and we're feeding on demand. He's back above his birth weight. I'm still...
