    Weak latch

    Hi there

    My 6 week old twin boy has a very weak latch, and pops on/off the breast several times. He also take 30-45 minutes to feed, if I'm able to let him go that long. I often default to a...
  2. Re: When can I cut back on pumping?

    Thanks Jessica.

    I don't have any plans to stop breastfeeding after a year, but I was thinking I'd like to try and stop pumping after a year. But then, I second guess that too!

    Thanks for your...
  3. Re: How often should a 8.5 month old nurse?

    Thanks for your replies and suggestions.

    I do offer before and after naps, and solids are given halfway between. She often doesn't want to nurse other than before her naps though.

    I guess...
  4. When can I cut back on pumping?

    My DD is 8.5 months old and I currently work 15-20 hours/week. I pump twice a day and usually get ~5 oz per session. She rarely drinks more than 6-8 oz while I'm gone, and sometimes it's as little...
  5. How often should a 8.5 month old nurse?

    DD has decreased her nursing sessions from 6-7 a month ago to 4-5 max. And, two of those aren't full sessions.

    This is okay, right? Par for the course?

    Her appetite for food has really...

    Re: Medela PISA leaking air?

    This has happened to me before and has been one of two problems:

    1. The membrane isn't sitting flush with the valve or the valve isn't tight against the adapter.

    2. The tubing connections...
  8. Re: What first food did you start with?

    We started with sweet potato, followed by apple, banana, carrot, peas, green beans, prunes and pears. Next we will try avocado. :)

    We've done a mixture of baby led feeding and purees. She loves...

    Is this a phase?

    DD has just cut her first 2 teeth and is going through a growth spurt (she's 6 months).

    She used to be a very "efficient" nurser, never nursing longer than 10 minutes at a time. She's recently...

    Re: organic vs. homemade food

    I'm in the same boat. Some things (like organic sweet potato) I just can't find, so I've been using organic purees in those cases.
  11. Re: i feel like my suppy is dropping - how can i nourish my 7 month old?

    Has your period returned? I have found that I get a dip in supply 3-4 days before my flow starts. It always jumps back up though, peaking around ovulation.

    Re: feeding schedule?

    We're struggling with a bit of the same thing....

    What I've been trying to do is offer her solids before her 1st nap, about 1 hour after getting up (so 1 hour after she's nursed) and then again...

    Re: I'm in big trouble . . .

    I go through the exact same thing. Before AF returned, I could easily pump 6-8 oz per session. Right before AF returned for the first time, I could only get 1-2 oz. I panicked and started taking...
  15. Re: Have you had luck switching nipples on glass bottles?

    I use both the Dr. Brown and the Playtex silicone nipples on my Evenflo glass bottles. No problems whatsoever. :)
  16. Re: Question about milk that is high in lipase.

    Thanks for replying Caroline. :)

    I don't have a bottle warmer, but may consider getting one.

    For those that have done it on the stove, is it difficult to do? I'm quite paranoid about burning...

    Me too! This just happened to me tonight.
  18. Question about milk that is high in lipase.

    So, after reading through posts on this topic, I decided to test my frozen stash. My frozen milk has a strong metallic taste, and my 2-day old milk tastes a bit soapy. This is a sign of abundant...
