    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    I hope you feel better soon!
  2. Re: Too late to wean daughter(3) before new baby arrives?

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the baby to come!

    Questions about time- like "When will I have a full supply?" or "When will my milk dry up?" or "Do I have enough time to warn my older...
  3. Re: Blocked duct: oversupply, bad latch, or bad bra

    Based on what you're describing, my guess is that you have some relatively minor oversupply going on. Pumping 4-5 oz at one go, having baby occasionally gulp/choke/sputter, very liquid stools- those...

    Re: pumping and supply after mastitis

    You can increase the amount you are pumping by consistently pumping in addition to nursing on demand. Expect the process of rebuilding supply to take time- you're not going to get back to. Where you...

    Re: Baby 6 days old, need help!

    :ita with MaddieB!

    I just want to add that getting your tubes tied does not impact lactation. The only way it could would be if the procedure made you sick and unable to nurse as a result.

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    :ita Since you're not on bromocriptine now, it seems unlikely that the meds did more than do their job, which was to shrink the prolactinoma. But I would want to see the endocrinologist anyway! See...

    Re: LOST!!!

    There are no guidelines for how much increase you should see each time because every woman is so individual and will respond differently based on her response to her pump, the amount of pumping she...
  8. Re: 4 month old doesn't like nursing anymore

    I think that in situations like this, you try the spaghetti approach: throw everything against the wall and see what sticks! Nothing is guaranteed to work.

    One thing you might do is to add the...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    What sort of tumor was it- was it a prolactinoma? If so, you may want to take a trip to the endocrinologist to verify that your body is still capable of producing a normal amount of prolactin. ...
  10. Re: How do you know when your oversupply has regulated itsel

    Fore milk/hindmilk "imbalance" is IMO the biggest non-issue in breastfeeding. There's this trope out there that hindmilk is "full, rich, satisfying" and therefore good, while foremilk is like skim...

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on making it to 4 months of nursing despite a very frustrating situation! I actually do know someone who experienced a similar thing. At around 6 weeks her...

    Re: LOST!!!

    Is hand expression working better for you than pumping? In other words, does it feel more comfortable, and do you get more milk that way? If so, then the rapid emptying could be because you respond...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    Welcome to the forum!

    When there is an issue with an EBF baby's weight gain, the problem is almost always the quantity of milk the baby is getting, not the quality (i.e., the amount of calories in...

    Re: Period returned - supply question

    in general, it is not necessary to add any dietary supplements in order to maintain normal milk production. For most moms, all that is required to maintain production is to nurse on demand. That...

    Re: Two bottles a day at daycare?

    In that case, you probably want to reduce the size of the bottles you're sending to daycare. A policy of dumping unfinished bottles combined with huge bottles means wasted milk and unrealistic...

    You are not failing your doctor. Your doctor is failing you by giving you stupid advice. 15 minutes per side, every 2-3 hours is terrible advice- you're both going to be miserable and theorems a...

    Re: Two bottles a day at daycare?

    That is neither reasonable nor okay. He should not be eating 7-8 oz at a time, because he is a breastfed baby. Breastfed babies typically eat more like 2-4 oz at a time when at the breast, and they...

    Re: Do I need to pump?

    You won't lose the option to pump in between nursing sessions. Supply is "use it or lose it", but the loss isn't permanent unless you want it to be. Let's say you just nurse and your supply adjusts...

    Re: self weaning or nursing strike?

    There are babies who self-wean at less than 12 months. (I personally know 4 of them!) But weaning is a two-way street: you don't have to stop trying just because the baby is acting like she's not...
  20. Re: Sleeping through the night but now green poop

    It never hurts baby to wake and nurse at night. The only thing it hurts is your sleep, but if you aren't troubled by waking up in the night there are no negatives!

    One way to fit in an extra...

  22. Re: Regular dips in supply-What's happening?

    A hormonal fluctuation related to the body gearing up for fertility is a good hypothesis, too. 10 weeks seems quite early for it to be happening, though certainly not impossible!

  23. Re: Sleeping through the night but now green poop

    In the first 4 months, you should expect the baby to gain around 5-7 oz per week, see http://kellymom.com/bf/normal/weight-gain/
  24. Re: Regular dips in supply-What's happening?

    Thanks for providing more details! Based on what you're describing, here's what I think is happening: your supply is trying to adjust to make just the right amount of milk, but every time it tries...
  25. Re: Sleeping through the night but now green poop

    Definitely agree with your lactation department: it's way too early to think about allergies, and the most probable cause of the green poop is the long stretch of sleep. Here's why it happens: milk...
