    Re: Fussy baby

    Babies go through many growth spurts in the beginning (and one of them is around 2 weeks, so this would be my first guess!) and that can cause fussiness and increased nursing. Continue to nurse him...

    It's likely from let-down. Very normal! :)
  3. Re: Taking turns on each breast per feeding?

    It generally isn't necessary to nurse for a specific amount of time on one breast and then make baby switch. Let your little nurse until she unlatches herself, and then offer the other breast. She...
  4. Re: Is it okay for Daddy to attend meetings?

    Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's so wonderful that your dh is supportive. Many LLL groups do ask that men not attend. For many reasons, some mothers may be uncomfortable with men at...

    Re: Fullness

    That's normal, even if you hadn't been pumping (I had to pump for 11 days while mine was in the NICU). Around 6 weeks your supply should be more even. We just passed 6 months and my supply is just...

    Re: Doesn't Like Cereal

    Well, have you ever tried it? I wouldn't want it either! Very bland, hehe :D

    5 months is still a bit early for the majority of babies, that might have something to do with it, too- ...

    Re: My baby is a beggar and a snatcher!
