    Re: Can baby be allergic to BM?

    Haven't talked to lac consultant yet (left message today, awaiting return call) but my spidey senses are telling me the formula is a bad idea. Baby is gaining really well and very content to nurse...

  10. Re: Need Help, baby WONT take formula or EBM

    I have lots of reasons to start weaning now...some valid and a few selfish ones. I plan to do a nice and gradual wean, though, so by the time I'm totally done my LO will be 11-12 mos old. I think...
  11. Need Help, baby WONT take formula or EBM

    Hi all!

    Re: Spoiled Breast milk?

    If the milk was spoiled, you would know it because it would STINK! I had one spoiled batch and the smell reminded me of spit up and it tasted REALLY SOUR (your LO probably wouldn't have taken it)

    If baby is thriving and happy, and the new routine isn't to much trouble for you, I wouldn't worry about it. Do you need to get your LO on a different routine for some reason? (Work, too cumbersome,...

    I agree that your LO is probably going through a growth spurt or wanting to nurse more because she isn't feeling well...but if you are concerned with how much she is taking in, you can go to a Lac...
