  2. Re: sleeping w/ newborn while breastfeeding..?

    Hi Brenda, and welcome to the boards! La Leche League doesn't have an official policy on sleep, and we believe that different things work for different families. However, many moms do find that...

    Re: Mastitis in week 2

    I'm so sorry you're having difficulties! I can tell that you're really frustrated by all this. My suggestion would be to continue to pump often on the affected side (even if you're not getting much...
  4. Re: Letdown / frequent nursing - getting desperate

    I second Kate's suggestion to try breast compression, which will encourage your baby to get more of the fatty hindmilk, which may help him to go longer periods between feedings.

    Re: Thrush?

    Just keep trying, and don't let him use a bad latch! The more you can get him to latch properly, the more likely he will be to START OUT with a good latch. If you let him know that a bad latch won't...

    Re: Thrush?

    Dryad, how are you doing? Have you ascertained that it is indeed thrush that you're dealing with?

    Re: Nipple Soreness

    Does the pain go away during the feeding, or are your nipples sore the entire time? Do you have any nipple trauma - cracked or bleeding nipples?

  12. Re: How many times a day does a breastfed baby normally poop?

    There's a wide variation of normal, but what you describe is certainly within normal. It's common for a breastfed baby to go several times a day in the early weeks. It's also common for a baby to...

    Re: My what a sloppy eater I have!

    Like Erika, my first thought was that maybe you're dealing with a bit of milk overproduction/overactive letdown. That can cause fussiness at the breast, and pulling on and off (especially if you see...
