    Re: Inconsolable!

    I can only offer that I've been there and this will pass. My almost 4 month old is starting to come out of the colicky behavior. It is tough. Ask for help. One day I was so overwhelmed that I had a...

    Re: Annoyed re: dental issues

    If it makes you feel any better, we had the same problem. As soon as my oldest child's teeth emerged, they had stains on them. We keep them as clean as we can. He is almost 5 years old now, and they...

    According to Dr Harvey Karp, the guy who wrote The Happiest Baby on the Block, very few babies have gas pain. They are just unable to calm themselves and they need a very certain method to be calmed....

    Re: Ouch!!! Pinching Problem

    Yes I remember that. I just wouldn't let my child touch my other breast when he was nursing. It will eventually stop.

    Re: Eating frequency and manner...

    Is he teething? Sometimes that could make it hurt to nurse.

    Also, you do not HAVE to start solids at 6 months. With my first child, I didn't offer solids until 10 months. Some people go longer.

    Re: Uh-oh, Aunt Flo is back!

    I didn't notice any supply issues or soreness. Though I did get a raging yeast infection. Not that you needed to know that, but I'm convinced it was due to hormone changes. It came back at 18 months....

    Re: Still having problems...growth spurt?

    My second child is the same way. My friend dropped off a swaddling blanket and I am amazed. At first it seemed mean putting him in it. It looks like a straight jacket. Plus he fussed while we put him...

    Re: Sucking fingers/hands

    It could be the start of teething. With my first child, teething started around 3 months. He did the hand in mouth while trying to nurse as well. Plus he started drooling around then.

    Re: Help: in a lot of pain here!

    Have you tried calling the 24 hour LLL hotline? 1-877-4-LA LECHE. Waiting 2 weeks is way too long for you. Hopefully your local leader will call you back, but in the mean time, call the hotline.

    Re: My mom hurt my feelings

    Both my mother and especially my mother in law gave me a lot of trouble as to how clingy Mez was when he was a baby. My mother in law just couldn't accept that he didn't want her to hold him. I must...

    Re: trouble with feeding

    Are you engorged? Do your breasts feel hard or tight? Some women find that pumping just a little bit of milk to empty the breast will help the little one latch on. Since you are so new to this, you...

    Re: When will my baby sleep longer than 3 hrs.

    Mez didn't sleep longer than three hours at a time until he was 2 years old. When he was 8 weeks old, it was every 45 minutes. I was insane from sleep deprivation. I was lucky my husband was working...

    I got my period back when Mez was 18 months old. He is now 49 months old (just over 4 years) and is still nursing.

    Around the time my cycle returned, I noticed there were a few nights where he...
