    made it to one!

    Never thought it possible...getting breastfeeding established definitely was one of the hardest things I've ever done, but we made it! I'm so proud of myself and my little guy, now a nursing...

    Re: Prevacid tablets...any tricks?

    OMG! We're dealing with this too! Really bad formulation for babies! We were doing the ranitidine syrup before, and he loved it. Anyway, here's what we do:

    1) cut pill in half with a sharp...
  4. Re: freaking out a bit...supply dip at 8 months

    pills just arrived! wooohooo! never been so pleased to see the mailman coming down the walk!

    (thanks for all the suggestions! hopefully there is no next time, but if there is, what does one do...
  5. Re: freaking out a bit...supply dip at 8 months

    Ok, still no domperidone. Trying to find fenugreek (where???) and eating oatmeal because it's clear he's not getting enough. And after screaming battles with bottle and cup, I don't know what to...

    Re: Medela Lactina vs Symphony

    I've used both and prefer the Lactina by far! The reason I prefer it to the Symphony is that you set the speed and suction strength. The Symphony is more like the PIS with its two settings. I found...
  7. Re: freaking out a bit...supply dip at 8 months

    No, my period hasn't come back. I've been off the domperidone now for 5 days, and I've been nursing him every 1.5-2 hours during the day, hoping to build up supply. He's still acting pretty fussy...

  9. freaking out a bit...supply dip at 8 months

    Ok. I'm hoping someone has been through something similar and can help me out here. I've been on domperidone for about seven months (90 mg/day), and things have been going fine with breastfeeding...

    Re: Baby boy nursing concerns

    I don't know the OP's story, but I know mine. And with all due respect, I don't think it's fair to compare nursing to sleep a baby who then goes on to sleep 10-11 hours to one who is awake at night...
  11. Re: thinking of renting...symphony or lactina?

    I've used both and prefer the lactina (which is a double btw) by far! The reason I prefer it to the symphony is that you set the speed and suction strength. The Symphony is more like the PIS with...

    Re: Short & Fussy Nursing Sessions

    I know exactly how you feel! My soon-to-be six month old started this behavior about a month ago. Teeth (bottom two) followed shortly! He also started waking up MANY times at night, but he never...

    Re: five month old suddenly insatiable

    UPDATE:
    I knew they weighed him incorrectly! I had an optometry appt today and while I was at the clinic, I had them throw him up on the scale: 14 lbs 1 oz. A gain of 9 oz in 8 days (using their...

    Re: five month old suddenly insatiable

    UPDATE

    So, we just had his six month appt today and the ped wants me to start him on rice cereal which I am ambivalent about. He was five months on Nov 10, but we're moving soon so we wanted to...

    Re: five month old suddenly insatiable

    I definitely have had nighttime issues while he has been teething. He was never a good sleeper, but now I'm wishing for those three hour stretches from before! I've just been going with it though...

    Re: five month old suddenly insatiable

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm pretty sure he's not teething and doesn't have an ear infection so maybe it's a growth spurt? Although it's been going on almost a week now...is that normal? Is...

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new here, but I've read some of the entries, and it seemed like a good place to get some advice or at least vent. I gave birth on June 10 (due date of July 12) to a nice big...
