  2. Re: So confused about weight gain. Dr vs. IBCLC

    If I implied that people on these boards were unsupportive, I'm sorry. That's not at all what I meant. I'm just discouraged in general. Thanks for the responses. Off to breastfeed...:eye
  3. Re: So confused about weight gain. Dr vs. IBCLC

    Thanks, ladies.

    What I meant by "she's a good sleeper" is that I can generally nurse her and/or give her a tiny supplement, lay her down and she will drift off to sleep on her own for an hour or...

  7. Re: So confused about weight gain. Dr vs. IBCLC

    7 lbs was the lowest weight. She weighed that amount 2 days after getting out of the hospital. I believe she was 5 or 6 days old.
    The weights were on the IBCLC and my pediatricians' scales. All...

    Re: Here We Go...Again

    @Mommal - yes, supplements were in the picture even on domperidone...about 4oz at night and that was it. Now, she is getting about 8-10 oz per a 24 hr period and I think you are right in that the...

    Re: Goats Rue

    She is a slow gainer. I have another weight check tomorrow but, last time, she had only gained 3oz in 10 days and that was WITH supplementing 2oz per day. She poops every other day but, it is a...

    Re: Goats Rue

    Well, I've been doing the goat's rue for about a week and the big change I've noticed is that my letdowns are more painful. Does this mean they are "bigger" as in containmore milk?

    Hi there- I just bought a bottle of Goats Rue capsules in hopes of increasing milk supply. Didn't know if I should be taking more than the bottle prescribed or if one 330 mg capsule 3x daily will...

    Re: Freaking out..

    No, no birth control here. The only things I can think of are the fact that I don't wake her up as often and I haven't been drinking a ton of water. Could dehydration kill my supply overnight?

    I...

    Re: Freaking out..

    She will either latch on and fall asleep, slip off or just sit there. And after I keep trying for a while, she screams at me. I tried to nurse her almost constantly today (put the toddler in front of...

    Freaking out..

    This morning, I woke up and cannot seem to have a let down for my LO. I've had supply issues in the past and am on domperidone. I supplement but, only 2 oz a day. Lately, she has been sleeping larger...

    Possible dumb question :)

    When I'm told to nurse my baby every two hours, does that mean 2 hours from the start of a feeding or 2 hours from when she's finished with the last feed and her belly is full?

    She's 6 weeks old...

    Re: Cannot find a rhythm

    Sorry, she is 5 weeks old. I will try setting my alarm and nursing every 3 hours. It's just very hard because a feeding takes at least an hour so, I will definitely be trashed come morning when my...

    Re: To Clip or Not to Clip?

    Yes, I see a IBCLC regularly. She's the one who spotted the posterior tongue tie. I'm supplementing because my baby cries most of the day and is never satisfied from a feed. I have a 23 month old who...
