  1. Healing bite on nipple? And how to stop biting?

    My 7 month old bit my nipple so hard that I now have a cut from the base of my nipple (where it meets my breast) to the tip of my nipple. Needless to say, I'm in a lot of pain and worried about how...

    Re: Please help - reflux?

    Hi there... Just wanted to give you some insight on reflux. First off, most babies have some degree of relux, so often times it's just a matter of lifestyle modifications (frequent smaller...
  3. Re: Weight gain / sleeping through the night

    I agree with the other replies. Your baby seems to be doing well - doctors want to see a baby's birth weight doubled by 6 months, and your daughter should be doubled by 4 months at this rate. My...

    Thanks ladies... I feel better already, and I know more son does too!
  5. Can I reverse starting to wean my son?

    Is it possible to reverse the weaning process once it's started, and if so how do I?

  6. Re: Help - Dr recommended formula for 2 weeks :(

    Thanks everyone for the support. :) And thanks for the thread about blood in stools - it has awesome info! I have cut out all dairy (including hidden dairy) for almost 2 months now, so I think my...
  7. Help - Dr recommended formula for 2 weeks :(

    Sorry for the long post (again) but I'm so confused and upset...

    I've been having some allergy issues with my 3 month old son. We discovered (or I discovered, since most drs are very dismissive...
  8. Re: Is sleeping through the night ok at 3 months?

    Thanks for the reassurance, ladies! By "slow gainer" I mean he is just shy of gaining the 1 ounce per day average so many peds go by. At his 2 month appointment he had gone from 6lb15oz birth...
  9. Is sleeping through the night ok at 3 months?

    It's me again! This time I have a question about sleeping through the night. My 11 week old son is now going 2 long 4-5 hour stretches at night between feedings. I have 2 questions about this. ...
  10. Re: Why does my 2 month old has diarrhea?

    That makes sense... Thanks, ladies!! :)
  11. Re: Why does my 2 month old has diarrhea?

    He got his vaccines - including the rotavirus one - last week on Tuesday. Could that be it, even though it was 6-7 days ago? I hadn't even thought of that...
  12. Re: Why does my 2 month old has diarrhea?

    Thanks for the link, it was very helpful and reassuring. I'm pretty sure it is diarrhea, though. :/ Although it's still yellow, it's pretty much a yellow liquid mess that is completely absorbed...
  13. Why does my 2 month old has diarrhea?

    Hi ladies! Sorry, I feel like I'm always posting questions on here... But I'm a FTM and I've already faced a few challenges with my son, and now I have another. My 2 month old son has had diarrhea...

    Re: Change in Poop

    I just asked my son's pediatrician the same question last week at his 2 month appointment. My son's poop has not been "seedy" in weeks. It is still yellow, but seems almost stringy (but no mucus). ...
  15. Re: Tips for "slow gaining" 2 month old?

    Wow - thanks ladies! It's so hard to get proper info and support for bf from doctors, so thanks for your input! I've been back to feeding on demand since Tuesday, and that is making me feel so much...
  16. Re: Tips for "slow gaining" 2 month old?

    Thanks ladies! We are back to nursing on demand, so hopefully that will help. Now I just have to get over my guilt that I've harmed him in the past month... :/ I've definitely noticed that...
  17. Re: Tips for "slow gaining" 2 month old?

    He nurses 8 times a day for about 12-15 minutes, and I think I "let-down" twice each time he nurses. I was nursing on demand, which for him was about every 2 hours during the day with a 4ish hour...
  18. Tips for "slow gaining" 2 month old?

    My 2 month old ebf son is not gaining weight at the rate of 1 ounce per day. At his 2 month check-up yesterday he has fallen to the bottom 3% for weight (he was at the 15% range at birth). I know...

    Re: cutting out dairy

    When I cut out dairy, I noticed a difference immediately. Within a day or two my son seemed much more comfortable. It hasn't been perfect, but definitely noticeable. I agree that it can take weeks...
  20. Re: Sudden latching issues starting at 6 weeks

    Thanks for the advice, regardless of age. :) My son doesn't latch eagerly then let off, so I don't think it's pain. He really doesn't open his mouth very wide at all anymore, so I have to really...
  21. Re: Sudden latching issues starting at 6 weeks

    I'm not in any pain really, I just notice that my nipple looks funny after he nurses now (it never did before). He starts off latching shallow, so it's not that he eases into a more shallow latch...
  22. Sudden latching issues starting at 6 weeks

    My 7 week old son has been great at nursing/latching since birth. Suddenly at around 6 weeks, he began latching poorly. He's not opening his mouth bery wide, and only taking in my nipple and a small...
  23. Please help - milk allergy - should I pump and dump??

    My 6 week old son began spitting up A LOT at around 3 weeks. I began taking steps to help with reflux as well as a milk allergy - so I was dairy free for a few weeks. When I went to the...
  24. Re: How long until breastfeeding doesnt hurt as bad?

    For me, breastfeeding SUCKED for the first 2 weeks. The first week or so, the pain was intense (breast and nipples) throughout the feeding and even when I wasn't feeding. Then by the second week, I...
  25. Could one side be producing more milk?

    Hi ladies, quick question about supply. I just started pumping once a day while my son nurses to start building a small back-up supply of breastmilk. I've noticed that I get more milk from my left...
