    pump to maintain supply?

    I don't know if this is a pumping or supply issue -- they're related. My db is almost 3 mos old, and he's been sleeping through the night since he 9 weeks. Back then, his bedtime was closer to...

    Re: Sucking air

    My db is the same way. He starts off great when my breasts are really full, but then starts getting a little lazy towards the end. I hear his tummy gurgle sometimes, too. That's just an indication...

    Re: Help - Running out of ideas

    I had the same issues since my db was about 2.5 weeks old. He went through a crying phase and now a sleepy phase while nursing. His naps are very short, too. We are both being treated for thrush even...

    Sleeping through the night

    My 6 wk old is starting to sleep through the night sometimes. He'll go anywhere between 4-8 hrs. On the longer stretches of his sleep, my breasts get painfully engorged. What should I do? Do I wake...

    Re: Am I a lazy nurser?

    Thanks! I guess I should play it by ear if he seems gassy, then I'll make the effort to burp him. Otherwise, I'll let him fall asleep. I am still trying to figure out why he cries during some...

    Re: Worried (partial vent and long....sorry)

    I forgot to mention, I do have a little bit of a schedule if feedings go well. Baby has set wake time at 7:30. If he wakes up before, I give him a little to nibble on and then put him back to sleep...

    Re: Worried (partial vent and long....sorry)

    Hi Wahini,

    I was in a similar situation to you. My firstborn didn't get to nurse after a month because I didn't have the confidence or support I needed to get past all the initial frustration. I...

    Re: Am I a lazy nurser?

    I, too, change my baby's diaper in bed, and have started to nurse lying down at night as well, and it's great! My only concern is shouldn't the baby be burped before falling back to sleep? Most of...

    Re: Allergies or Reflux??

    Hi Momtoboys,
    I have the same problem with my 5 week old son. He started crying at the breast at 2.5 weeks and it has progressively gotten worse. I can't figure out what the problem is either. I...

    Re: Poopy questions

    My baby is now 5 weeks old. He is solely breastfed. He has a few barely-there pasty greenish/yellow/brownish bowels a day, and one REALLY LARGE bright yellow, mustardy, seedy bowel every morning....

    Re: Losing my milk?

    Carol, You're wonderful! Thank you for your prompt and useful information. The link on slow let-down is exactly the same thing I'm experiencing. I don't think it's a question of milk supply any...

    Poopy questions

    If my db's bowels are sometimes greenish/yellow and the consistency of pasty glue, does that mean he has an allergy or does it mean he's not getting enough hind-milk? I've heard different things.

    Re: Losing my milk?

    Thank you, Carol, for your detailed input. By your description of bowels and wet diapers, I feel confident my baby is outputting fine. My only real question now is my lack of let-down during some...

    I have a 5 wk old and am having similar concerns as to my milk supply, but in addition, the last couple of feedings rose other concerns. I feel let downs during the day, at most nursings, and...

    Re: Fussy baby

    Thanks for everyone's ideas and advice. Actually, his fussiness/crying spurts during feedings have lessened down to maybe once a day or less, and I think it's due to low milk output now. Before he...

    Re: Fussy baby

    I have a one month old DB who, at 3 weeks began having the same fussy & screaming during some nursing sessions, like SA2004 wrote. He nursed fine for the first 2.5 weeks and would go 3 hours between...
