  1. Re: Baby prefers one breast to the other

    I agree preference for one side is common and is not necessarily a problem even in the extreme as it is possible in some cases for baby to get plenty of milk from one side.

    Also, 4 months is a...
  2. Re: Feeling attacked by husband, dentist, and doctor

    3 kids, all nursed for over two years, (oldest two nursed over 4 years, youngest is now 2 and a half and nursing.)
    All co-slept, nursed overnight, and not a cavity among them yet. oldest is now 11....

    Re: Question about Mastitis

    It sounds like a plug. Heat may not be the best thing in that case, the thinking is changing a bit on that. Cold compresses and vibration (like an electric toothbrush) may help if heat and massage is...
  4. Re: Can a baby be "allergic" to breastmilk?

    I am not an expert by any means. but my understanding is some babies cannot process lactose. But yes this is an exceedingly rare condition and probably would have been noticeably making baby very,...
  5. Re: Article about Rise of Exclusive Pumping

    I suspect the actual data is flawed in defining differentiations between nursing some and nursing 'exclusively', pumping some or 'exclusively, reasons for pumping, (of which there are many) and also...

    I was not suggesting you should not have posted what you did. I was simply offering my thoughts as well.

    Re: When to worry about weight?

    More safe sun exposure is great, but it is not likely to be enough if they are actually deficient or borderline. Also it would depend how close to the equator you are, if it is winter or summer...
  8. Re: Gassy, no one is sleeping, what am I doing wrong?

    Fussyness, crying, hiccups, spit up, not spitting up, gassiness, and grunting, -all of this truly sounds entirely normal to me.

    One thing to look may be the 'regular' burping. I have seen parents...

    Re: When to worry about weight?

    I wonder if karengramada is going to have info about growth as far as twins go. www.karengromada.com

    However off the top of my head I do not see what the difference would be. A baby is a baby....

    Re: Everything changed/gone wrong

    Gulping is a sign of fast letdown, but I am unsure why this would require taking baby off? Baby has to handle the fast letdown somehow and gulping but staying on is a sign baby is learning to handle...
  12. Re: Gassy, no one is sleeping, what am I doing wrong?

    My suggestion is to only nurse one side at a time. Your baby is gaining wonderfully so there is no reason to offer both sides every session. This (switching sides each session) is a milk production...

    Re: Everything changed/gone wrong

    I agree, just in general, see if baby will nurse more often.

    If, however, this happens again, where the super producer side is causing issues, and it well may, I would suggest:
    Hand express or...
  14. Re: trouble feeding 2-week-old/nipple confusion?

    First, I hope someone has explained to you that jaundice occurs in a very large number of newborns, varies greatly in seriousness, (often coming and going with no treatment or ill effects whatsoever)...

    Re: Everything changed/gone wrong

    yes. Flow will often vary for several reasons, and vary between breasts as well. Also sometimes baby may be less able to 'handle' a fast flow than others. One factor that is pretty consistent is how...

    Re: Oversupply? Late engorgement?

    It sounds to me as if things are going better and, except for the owie latch, everything sounds pretty normal for this age. Great baby is exclusively nursing at this point- this will probably help...

    Re: Understanding baby

    Congratulations! I agree with pp. No particular reason to interpret dear baby's signals with so much specificity. Hold baby lots, and offer to nurse whenever there is any indication baby wishes to...
  20. Re: my baby eats a lot at night every 45 minutes. he is 10,

    I assume weight gain is good? As long as baby is gaining normally, baby is getting enough to eat. In that case, as frustrating as it is, nursing very frequently is very common.

    Maybe try leaning...

    Re: Oversupply? Late engorgement?

    Hi! Sounds as if you are doing really well after a very challenging start. I do agree with pp- 2 weeks is rather early to be block nursing.

    First I am not sure what you mean by 'late'...

    Re: Letdown issues

    I agree with erin.
    It is entirely normal for normally lactating breasts to feel different after the first few months. This can and often does include no longer feeling a letdown sensation, no...
  23. Re: Can Comfort Nursing Cause Lactation?

    I expect the problem/confusion is the term "comfort nursing"

    This is just another term for nursing. When a baby is nursing, it does not matter why baby nurses- whether baby is nursing for food or...

    Re: New Positions?

    It is perfectly fine for baby to take one side at a time if that is what baby prefers.. Making baby switch sides is a milk production increasing technique and is not needed unless baby is not gaining...
