    Re: Help with the Scheduling

    The best thing you can do, is to pump at similar times to when baby would be nursing if you were together. For instance, if baby would normally nurse at 9:30am, 12:30pm and 3:30pm, then pump at...
  2. Re: My baby's not growing!

    I really think it's too soon to be uber worried about this:hug Especially since your ped is happy and content with his weight gain/growth.

    It is normal for some babies to not regain the weight...
  3. Re: Mixed Messages...Help!!

    The bigger babies get, the more breastmilk they're going to be able to and need to take in at one time, so it is possible for some breastfed babies to require more than others...though 1-1.5 ozs per...
  4. Re: My baby's not growing!

    If he's having plenty of wet and dirty diapers and is healthy and happy and content and gaining weight well, then it might be possible that they made an error in his length measurement. The error...
  5. Re: salmonella and breastfeeding

    :ita Here's a link for more info: http://www.salmonella.org/info.html

    Basically, that means that unless you didn't wash your hands after using the bathroom during your bout with the stomach...
  6. Re: Another foremilk/oversupply question

    I think Block feeding may have lowered your supply a bit too much. Then, when you went to work on Monday, you didn't have quite enough breastmilk in just pumping from one breast. That's ok though,...
  7. Re: Another foremilk/oversupply question

    Sorry it took so long to get back to you.

    My best advice would be to try to pump at the times when baby would be getting a bottle. That can be difficult, but it's the easiest way to regulate your...
  8. Re: Another foremilk/oversupply question

    :ita I agree completely with this. I had major oversupply issues with my oldest son, and it was partially due to me double pumping while I was at work when ds only nursed from one breast when we...
  9. Re: do toddlers EVER wean on their own?

    Yes, many toddlers really do wean on their own.

    However, from what I've read, before the mass introduction of formula, the average age of weaning was somewhere between the ages of 2 years and 7...
  10. Re: False alarm or low supply?


    I just wanted to encourage you as well. If baby is having plenty of wet and dirty diapers and is growing well and meeting milestones, then baby is getting enough breastmilk. It is...
  11. Re: please help me; need support and advice.

    One thing you could try, is something new that I heard one of the leaders here on the board mention awhile back. She suggested that sometimes it helps to give the baby the formula supplements first...

    Re: Baby burping

    I don't have experience with acid reflux, so I'm not sure of the answer there. I'm "guessing" that it probably could lead to more trapped gas and a need to burp more often, but it's just a guess.
  13. Re: Congested at night w/o cold?!?!

    My youngest had something like this when he was a newborn...probably up until he was maybe 3.5 months old or so.

    Does it seem like he has a really stuffy nose...do you actually see any mucous or...

    Re: Sleeping too long?

    With my first baby, the ped told me that at that age, one 4-5 hour stretch of sleep (where baby doesn't wake up to nurse) is fine/good. She also said that hopefully, that 4-5 hour stretch of sleep...
  15. Re: adding cereal delete a feeding?

    I think the other posters were trying to answer this question.

    The general rules, are that when baby starts cereal or solids, you need to always nurse first before giving solids until baby is...

    Re: Anemia and Solids...

    My point though, is that if it's a naturally low iron content food, and the cast iron cookware raised the iron content (which is similar to what's done by adding iron and vitamins to breakfast...

    Re: Anemia and Solids...

    Everybody would probably do something different for their own child, so I really can't say what's right for you and your fam, but I can tell you what I'd do if it were me.

    If it were me, and I had...

    Re: Fluoride??

    I would suggest your friend do some research online about flouride.

    In the research I've read, it's said that flouride isn't effective at preventing tooth decay unless it's applied topically, like...
  19. Re: Fluoride Free Bottled Water?

    Alot of bottled water is just tap water. Sometimes it's filtered, sometimes not, but most water filters don't remove flouride, so you can assume that there may be flouride in it. It doesn't have to...
  20. Re: Just need to talk this out I guess...


    Hon, it's ok to set limits with your ds, even if he does get super upset about it.

    I do have a couple of suggestions that might work...or at least help:shrug

    Think about how many...
  21. Re: I left cooked beans in the pot all night

    I'd throw them out personally. If it had only been a few hours, then I probably wouldn't worry all that much, but overnight...I'd toss them.

    Bacteria grows in stuff like cooked beans too...it's...

    Re: Still Demand Feeding?

    :ita From what I've read ( I think it was the AAP's info) is that between 6 and 12 mos. of age, solids should be a compliment to breastmilk, a learning experience so to speak, but the majority of...
  23. Re: I guess he's weaning.... advice needed

    I guess, that I wouldn't personally consider that weaning at all. He's still nursing directly from the breast at night and in the morning, so he's not weaning. He's just decided to be done with the...

    Re: Please bare with me

    Also, if you're not pumping while you're at work at all, then you will be lowering your milk supply, and it will put you at risk of early weaning simply because breastfeeding works off of supply and...

    Re: Please bare with me

    Are you pumping at work during the times when your baby would be nursing if you were home with her? When you're away from baby, you will get the best results (and not lower your milk supply) if...
