  1. Re: Doctor Requesting That I Supplement

    :ita Excellent advice form MaddieB!
  2. Re: Tongue/Lip tie- to attempt second release months later?

    I think taking some time to see if this resolves is an excellent idea! I know it can be nerve-wracking. My oldest has a lip tie and had such a bad latch as an infant that I ended up with terrible...
  3. Re: Short feeding gassy baby. Getting desperate!!

    Couldn't :ita more with MaddieB!

    I just want to re-emphasize that putting a healthy baby on lactose-free formula is a terrible idea. Not a "this might be bad" idea, or a "I personally wouldn't...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    :ita Great advice from Fes.

    We all completely understand if you decide that you can't take your baby- as I said, we all make some unreasonable copromises with our spouses. But I think I'd want...

    Re: Pumping for a preemie- Low Supply

    I have read anecdotal reports of magnesium sulfate- which is commonly given for pre-e- being associated with milk production difficulties. If you are still on it, perhaps it's impacting your ability...
  6. Re: Help! Pumping for a preemie & slept through 2 night sess

    :ita with the PP. Long sleep stretches can damage milk production, but you can generally make up for them by pumping more often when you're awake. Please don't beat yourself up over this!!!
  7. Re: Advice please for relactating for 13 week old.

    Welcome to the forum!

    First, what sort of pump are you using? You're pumping at a nice frequency, which is great, but you will maximize production if you are also using a great double electric...

    Re: Pumping for a preemie- Low Supply

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby! I'm so sorry that her birth had to be so fast and early.

    First of all, how are you feeling? Are you recovering okay? Are you taking...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    :hug We all do unreasonable stuff for our spouses. It's just part of marriage. My husband worries that our younger daughter might hurt herself with a knife, so I don't set a knife next to her...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    Why isn't bringing the baby an option? I see that as the easiest option! Babies travel for free as long as they did in your lap. If you bring the baby, you don't have to rush right home and you...
  11. Re: change in poop output any cause for concern?

    In that case, it's not adequate to the task. If you really need to know how much she's taking in, rent a professional scale good to the 1/10 of an oz.

    Based on the nice feeding frequency and...
  12. Re: Handling family's disagreements with breastfeeding...

    At 12 months, a baby can eat anything you can, as long as you watch out for choking hazards, e.g., grapes should be cut into pieces, nuts and hot dogs are to be avoided. I think it makes sense to go...

    Re: Period returning?- update and questions

    This all sounds perfectly normal. Babies don't nurse for 20 minutes per side forever. Most of them become more adept nursers and eventually learn how to get their needs met in a much shorter amount...
  15. Re: Tongue/Lip tie- to attempt second release months later?

    Lip and tongue ties can be released at any time. In fact, my older kid's lip tie was discovered by the dentist when she was 8 and her incisors were coming in with a gap between them, and he...
  16. Re: Handling family's disagreements with breastfeeding...

    :ita with MaddieB, as usual.

    I just want to throw something out there, for your consideration. Take it as a thought experiment, not a criticism! My thinking about solids is that while there is...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    First thing to ask yourself is this: do YOU want to go? Because if you do, traveling and breastfeeding are compatible, especially if you take the baby with you and nurse rather than pumping. You...
  18. Re: change in poop output any cause for concern?

    Is this a digital baby scale accurate to the 1/10 of an oz? And if so, would you be willing/able to weigh her every time she nurses for a couple of days? The reason I ask is that 0.5-1.5 oz at a...
  19. Re: Clogged duct, milk blister and now low supply

    :ita with the excellent information and suggestions from MaddieB!

    It sounds like you have 2 concerns:
    1. Lower pump output following an episode of bad plugs
    2. Low supply
    Is there anything else...
  20. Re: Short feeding gassy baby. Getting desperate!!

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby and on making it to 6 weeks of nursing!

    The first thing to know about foremilk/hindmilk imbalance is that it's pretty much the biggest...

    :ita No worries.
  22. Re: breastmilk right before(AND after) solids

    :ita with the PP! My kids were definitely nursing like newborns around that age, but they grew out of it. I don't remember when, exactly, because the transition from newborn-like nursing to...
  23. Re: Help with breastfeeding and sleeping through the night

    Remember that there is a big difference between sleep training a young, EBF baby and a toddler! With a toddler, you're constantly teaching limits, and limits around sleep can be part of the picture....
  24. Re: Advice needed re pump weaning & decreasing supply

    :ita Excellent advice from the PP, as usual. Go by feel, and take the weaning process nice and slow and careful. Don't try to drop too many sessions too fast, don't be afraid to pump or express...

    Re: Period returning?

    Thanks for answering those questions. On the plus side, you are using a good pump, pumping for a decent amount of time, and pumping frequently. So the likely explanation for the decrease in output...
