    Re: When to give juice??

    I'm another person who says "never". We only give it for constipation or as a treat when they are vomiting, to help keep any liquid down. It's diluted 1/2 and 1/2 whenever they get it.

    Re: normal?

    The ear infection and not feeling good from that can definitely mean wanting to nurse more. Infants also have growth spurts, where they just want to nurse more often. Just keep nursing as often as...

    Re: How long?

    Every mom is different, even milk pumped by the same mom, but at different times, may spoil at different times. So, there's no hard and fast rule for milk storage. LLL's guidelines are here,...

    Re: Baby not gaining enough weight

    Nurse more often! When he seems done eating, offer the other side, even if he already ate off of it.

    How long does he sleep at night? He need to be waking up to eat, not sleeping through. ...

    Re: 7 mo old trying to drop a feeding?

    It sounds like he's dropping that feeding. As babies get older, they can do for longer without nursing. Nursing + solids at noon, then nursing plus solids at 5pm (or a little earlier) means five...

    Re: baby with overbite will not nurse

    Many many infants have what appears to be an overbite, but it's very common. What's more worrisome to me is that you mention that he can't stick out his tongue. That really sounds like a tongue...

    Re: Engorgement and plugged duct ?

    I've heard it can take up to six weeks for your milk supply to regulate to baby's needs. It's quite likely that it's worse at night, as most nursing mothers find that they have a higher supply at...
  9. Re: Ok Its not just what I ate... now what??

    Instead of offering large feedings, try offering frequent small feedings. Just a few minutes, max. He's more likely to absorb more of it, because it will stay down a little longer.

    You could...

    Re: Second and third let-downs??

    More switch nursing is probably your best bet. Do it more often, as often as baby will let you. It's the suckling that will stimulate a letdown.

    Pumping might also do it, but babies are warm...

    Re: When to add a pumping session?

    Most moms have a higher supply early in the morning, so adding a pumping session in at that time could get you the most milk. Or try pumping on one side, while baby nurses on the other side.

    Re: Green Poop

    My baby got really green poop after I drank a bunch of purple koolaid. It was the food dye.

    In general, one green poop is within the realm of normal.

    Re: Incredibly gassy baby...help?

    Is your letdown really fast? Can you spray really far? If so, it might be him swallowing a bunch of air as he attempts to keep up with the flow.

    Re: Am I having output problems?

    Could be that you've changed your schedule. Could be that you have some dried milk stuck somewhere in your pump, so that it's not getting a good suction. Could be that AF is on it's way back. ...

    Re: Question about block feeding?

    Eventually, you'll probably notice that you'll be using both sides at one time. For us, it happened during a growth spurt (about 3mos or so), and after that, I just continued to use both breasts. ...

    Re: Is it possible

    Could be that it is indeed that. Sleeping longer than 5-6hrs overnight without nursing can bring back fertility. I'll hope it's not that, though, I like having a long time without a period. Good...

    Re: Milk is back

    Milk can take many weeks to completely dry up. Any stimulation to the breasts - tshirt rubbing on them, snuggling baby, etc - can encourage a letdown.
