    Re: Incredibly Slow Flow?

    I tried to nurse my oldest, but I had no support and supplemented early on and then he preferred bottles. I bawled, of course.

    Both were pierced and I sort of want to slap my younger self now,...

    Re: Incredibly Slow Flow?

    Well, she was a month early and took about three or so weeks to regain birth weight. And since then we only manage bout 3oz gain a week despite all of the switch nursing, compressions, no time...

    Incredibly Slow Flow?

    Okay, weird observation/question.

    I feel like I have the slowest flow EVER. I know pumping isn't an indicator, but even when I pump the only time milk even comes out is when I have a let down or...
  4. Getting Frustrated: Weak/Lazy Nurser and Keeping Up Supply

    I posted before in a different board but had slightly different questions. So I'm just throwing this out there to get some feedback and help for maybe a different approach. I'm starting to go a...
  5. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    We actually did this on Halloween and she did awesome. BUT the next day she seemed really tired out and didn't meet her diaper goal. So I'm guessing the combo of me having barely enough supply and...
  6. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    I just wanted to say hi because I have sort of the same thing going on. :hug

    My little girl was born at 35 weeks on September 14th at a big 8lbs and it took her a good month to regain her...
  7. Re: When will it get easier? (Preemie and low supply)

    Supplementing used to be with formula but then I was able to rent the Symphony (and I was pumping after every feed to help increase production. Dom hasn't arrived yet which is super frustrating. I...
  8. Re: When will it get easier? (Preemie and low supply)

    Things seem to be getting better a tiny tiny bit at a time. :) Our supplementing is soooo close to being done. We seem to be going every other day of only needing 2-4oz a day as little "top offs" in...

    Re: Breasts engorged?

    I agree with PP! Let baby nurse as often as it wants and wake baby *at least* every two hours. I was only engorged on the first day of my milk "coming in" but I found that hand expressing some in the...
  10. Re: When will it get easier? (Preemie and low supply)

    Well, we started out just at the breast and no supplementing and that's when we had slow weight gain (I also wasn't pumping after nursing sessions either). So I am just assuming that her poor suck in...
  11. Re: When will it get easier? (Preemie and low supply)

    Thanks, ladies! :)

    mommal, I have seen the local IBCLC lady (it's who I am renting my Symphony from) and from that session she feels that latch is very good, it's just that baby is rather lazy...
  12. When will it get easier? (Preemie and low supply)

    Just looking for support and hopes of a light at the end of the tunnel!

    My little girl is 6 weeks old now (adjusted age, 2 weeks) and we had slow weight gain right away. The past two weeks we have...
