    Three week old, possible oald?

    Hi - It's been a couple of years since I have had to post any questions. I have two children and for various reasons I couldn't nurse them (nipple shield, bad LC advice, etc). I EP'd with my first...

    Re: over supply? oald?

    In my opinion, and from personal experience.... pumping is HARD work and if you can nurse and work through any issues you have.... it is SO WORTH IT! I EP'd with my first two (could not nurse due to...
  4. Re: 16 month old, slow weight gain. Any advice??

    Thanks for the response! I will definitely try adding olive oil or butter to her low cal solids. She loves things like peas, carrots, sweet potatoes... and hasn't like things like avocado yet, but...
  5. 16 month old, slow weight gain. Any advice??

    My daughter was EBF and slow to start solids. I'm sure some of you will remember us on here... I posted questions all the time!! :) She did not show much interest in solids until 10 months and...
  6. Re: 14 month old and constipation (I think??)

    Hi bfwmomof3!! Yes, I agree with you. I think we got behind when we were out of town this week, and she had a difficult time. I started the prunes again today and she has already gone twice! :) ...
  7. Re: 14 month old and constipation (I think??)

    Thanks for the replies. I know I used to give my son (who is now four) prunes on a regular basis when he went to cow's milk because I was afraid he would get constipated. I did that until his...
  8. 14 month old and constipation (I think??)

    My baby was EBF until a year old. She did not take to solids well... and I didn't worry about it b/c I knew she had everything she needed from BM. Finally around a year old she started picking up...
  9. Re: How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    djs.mom - Thanks for the reply! I did try solids with her around 7-8 months, but she had NO interest. She acted like all she wanted was breastmilk and I was fine with that since I knew it was...
  10. Re: How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    OK... so here is a quick update and hopefully you guys can help me a little again! I am down to five and sometimes only four pumpings a day. I have plenty of breastmilk still, but I'm not in pain...
  11. Re: How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    OK.... so glad that I posted this question and am getting these answers/responses. I JUST dropped one pumping a day on Sunday... and have been doing that for these past four days. So, I'm glad to...
  12. Re: How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    OK... so just to make sure I'm understanding correctly... even though she is only eating solids (pureed foods twice per day)... it's OK to go ahead and stop the breastmilk? She will get enough...
  13. How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    Hi - it's me again with another question. To refresh your memory.... my daughter just turned one year old this past weekend. I have been EP-ing for a year now. She has only gotten breastmilk. I...

    Re: Solids and BLS.... getting frustrated

    OH... Another question I had was.... since she isn't eating more solids... wouldn't it be bad for her to go to cow's milk fully at a year? She isn't getting any calories from food.... and it seems...

    Re: Solids and BLS.... getting frustrated

    Thanks for your input! My LO is almost a year old (later in March) and still is just so iffy on the solids. Sometimes she'll take pureed food and sometimes shows no interest. Just this morning she...

    Solids and BLS.... getting frustrated

    My daughter just turned 11 months old. She has always been a milk baby and not that interested in solids. She has ONLY ever gotten breastmilk and when I tried to introduce solids around 7-8 months...

    bfwmomof3 - Thanks for your reply. I'm still going back and forth between the old and new PISA.... and I really think they are both equal in suction, so I think I'm starting to rule that out as an...

    Pumping and supply decreasing

    I have been EPing for eight months now. I wanted to breastfeed terribly, but due to poor advice from my LC... I used a nipple shield and supplemented (with breastmilk) bottles and I believe my...
  24. Re: Please Help!... baby will no longer latch, Long post

    Thank you so much for the comments. I am still trying... but nothing new has happened yet. I'm doing my best to NOT give up... but this is so hard. I don't understand why she will not latch. ...
  25. Re: Baby is reluctant to latch and isn't transferring milk

    Actually, someone just suggested that to me.... and I think I should try it. I'm willing to try anything to get her back to the breast!
