    eating enough?

    My 3 1/2 mo old recently weaned herself off the nipple shield (yea!) but she now eats in about 5-10 minutes about 5 times a day (she sleeps through the night 9-7) She seems satisfied and goes...
  2. Re: 3 month old not yet feeding at the breast

    Hey! My lo also had a very difficult time nursing. Have you tried a nipple shield? After 5 weeks my daughter was able to latch on to a nipple shield, so at least she's learning where the milk...

    Re: Is it too late?

    Just an idea - but I wonder what she would do if you used a supplemental nursing system (a tube attached to your breast that would provide additional milk) She'd get more at a time which may show...

    Re: Spit-up

    I don't know what others will have to say, but my lo often spits up in the middle of feedings when I burp her, then eagerly takes the other side. So I assume she's not done when she spits up. :) ...
  5. Re: she tried to nurse!!! - question, though

    Thanks Marymud! That's so encouraging. She seems to be willing to nurse with the nipple shield about every other feeding. She does best if she's woken up on her own, but during the day I wake her...
  6. she tried to nurse!!! - question, though

    My dd is just over 4 weeks old and has been very opposed to nursing. She never latched in the hospital so we've been pumping & giving her BM while letting her try nursing as often as possible....

    Re: having trouble

    Hey - congrats on your little girl! I agree with pp about seeing an LC or LLL leader.
    Regarding pumping - the quality of pump you use can greatly affect milk supply. I'm confused about why you...

    Re: Nipple Shield problem - HELP!

    Thanks! That's a possibility -
    This morning she started on the nipple shield for 15 minutes, then fell asleep. When I moved her off she started screaming and acting hungry - she was too...

    Re: sleeping 6 hrs?

    I was told not to let a breastfed baby sleep for more than 5 hours until they were two months old, and not to let them sleep for more than 4 in the very beginning while your supply is being...

    Nipple Shield problem - HELP!

    My 4 week old just began nursing with a nipple shield (we've been pumping because she refused the breast- even with a shield up until now) She's nursed three times, but two of these times have been...

    Re: Pumping Exclusively

    Congratulations on your new little girl!!! I am exclusively pumping for my little girl and would STRONGLY suggest you do your best to get her to the breast. :) I've been working for 4 weeks to get...
  13. Re: Did your baby get a late start on breastfeeding???

    Thanks for the support. She seems to actively try to latch on every feeding now - she's just not opening her mouth wide enough for me to be able to help her. She's so used to bottles or the finger!...

    Re: Can't pump anything

    I always pump the most when I'm distracted doing something else while pumping - some people say to think about your baby, but every time I actively do something else, like get on the computer and...

    Re: Pumping Question

    It's different for everyone! I was pumping plenty of milk by the time I felt up for errands (about a week) - but there are a lot of people whose bodies just dont' respond to pumping very well and...

    allergic to Lansinoh? Alternatives???

    I am pumping exclusively and it seems like my nipples are eternally sore and purple. I've tried Lansinoh Lanolin, but it really makes my nipples & skin around them itch! In addition I seem to get a...

    Re: Defective Nipple? Just one "stream"...

    Haha I meant 3 1/2 WEEK old, not year old :) Can you imagine still pumping after 3 1/2 years if your LO had NEVER latched? Oh man, I'm not that patient.
  18. Re: Did your baby get a late start on breastfeeding???

    Thanks for your replies. It's hard to believe that babies can learn to latch after refusing for so long. It's good to hear from people whose babies actually did.
  19. Did your baby get a late start on breastfeeding???

    I've posted in the newborn thread, but my daughter is almost 4 weeks old, which will push her out of the official newborn stage.

    I'm looking for some encouragement!

    My daughter, Darby, has...

    Re: Defective Nipple? Just one "stream"...

    I have the exact same issue! I pump exclusively because my 3 1/2 year old has yet to latch and I get double the milk from one breast with 3-4 streams from one and 1-2 streams from the other. They...

    Re: Pumping frequency + going out

    I too am pumping full time - it can be quite draining. Pumping does not always have the same emotional rewards as breastfeeding - you're clinging to the knowledge that you're doing what's best for...

    cluster pumping?

    I have a 2 1/2 week old who is currently uninterested in breastfeeding, so I don't have the convenience of feeding her anywhere because I have to pump when she feeds! My question: If I'm out of the...

    Re: Sore Nipples, need some tips

    I'd recommend getting your latch looked at by a lll leader or a lactation consultant. They'll be able to correct any problem and hopefully fix the soreness for you! In the meantime, it helps to not...
