  1. Re: Sore cracked nipples ... Help please !!!

    Are you treating the cracks with anything? Lanolin based cream that you leave on are supposed to help and I had a friend swear by 'breast angels' - silver cup things to help hers heal.

    Try to...

    Re: 8 month old with a bad latch?

    Agree with the PP about oral therapy, and flipple.

    I know you said positioning doesn't help, does that include laid back? ( Just because I don't often see it recommended).

    You've probably tried...
  3. Re: 8mo 3 wks/ night feedings/ solids help!!!

    Every baby is different, at 8 months we do solids every meal so 3 times a day, if I didn't she'd only steal my food anyways - and has when I haven't given her anything. We do baby led solids and so...

    Re: Needing some encouragement...

    Hey :)

    I know these things can be tedious and harder to do with a distracted on-off nurser, but are you doing things to help keep the latch deep? I.e breast compression, breast sandwich, flipple,...
  5. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Sounds like he got all the rest from you then! That's great :)

    Distracted babies just add to the fun, right?! Gotta love the noises :)
  6. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Sounds like you are doing great :)
  7. Re: Oversupply, dairy allergy, iron in my diet?

    Oh and seeds in poo often stop by 4 months so that isn't a worry either!
  8. Re: Oversupply, dairy allergy, iron in my diet?

    Is the sleep thing new or since birth? Only the 4 month mark is notorious for the '4 month fussies' we went from a bad sleeper to a screaming banshee for about 3 weeks while we...
  9. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Good luck with the referral! Just to say if it is TT sad you do have it released, baby may need encouragement to use their tongue differently. For us this took a couple of days of exercises and/or an...
  10. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Did the LC ever call back? She would know her area and the possibilities better!
  11. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Private wise it is probably easier to look for an ENT. I know this is who I was told I would need if my lo's had regrown. (Thankfully it hadn't).

    Amazes me that it is a dental procedure in the US!
  12. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Not sure there is such a thing as a Paed dentist in the UK... But it would be worth googling!

    Re: Baby Prefers to Nurse At Home

    As said above, try nursing in a 'laid back' position or maybe rugby/football hold?

    My daughter is reluctant to feed properly in a sling but if you can suss feeding in a carrier that would be...
  14. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Good luck with the IBCLC, mine was amazing and totally rescued my bf relationship!

    Tt can be done at 5 months but it does require an ENT referral at 5 months... This is possible but you would...
  15. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Having my daughters TT divided was the only way she could feed... It was posterior and drastically affected her ability to feed; despite a Paed telling me it wasn't affecting her. It was over in less...
  16. Re: How do I breastfeed my baby with Reflux?

    Have you considered seeing an IBCLC to assess your breastfeeding? Usually this has to be done privately and not on the NHS in the UK :(

    As said above baby rice can hinder weight gain tho some HV's...
  17. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    I used to take 10mcg 3 times a day and that was enough in the early days for me at least. (Am down to 2 times a day now). I was advised it can take up to 2 weeks for the full effect to show, so...

    Re: Intro to bottles

    I ditched a cover because it was too hard with fussing under it and instead wear a vest and a t-shirt so one up one down. It means very little shows... Over time I just got used to her potentially...

    Re: nursing schedule? almost 4 month old

    Just to add milk is drink as well as food too... So even if you as an adult schedule meals I bet you don't schedule sips of water/cups of coffee etc!

    And that's not even factoring in nursing for...
  20. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    It's ok for him to suck for comfort and choose not to feed much. If you have milk and he doesn't latch/take much maybe he didn't want much? I wouldn't obsess over individual feeds as long as across a...
  21. Re: Posterior tongue tie, craniosacral therapy?

    My LO had her posterior TT divided on day 7 and by 4 months we still had issues due to a bottle latch. (Including my daughter struggling to transfer milk and me ending up on medication to boost...
  22. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Am glad the acupuncture is helping!

    Nursing lying down may take some time to master... For ages I would sit up in bed and feed until she was nearly asleep and then move us into a lying down...

    Re: 3 month old twins...

    The only time I would doubt supply is if other things are going on, failure to weight gain etc!

    I would also say supplementing can diminish your supply too unless you are willing to pump so it...

    Re: 3 month old twins...

    3 months is notorious for increased feeding for a few days to a week, plus if you are somewhere hot they are probably just keeping hydrated.

    I see no reason to doubt your supply, just hang on in...

    Re: Breastmilk Dilemma

    You say your lo is 2 months old... Is he exclusively breastfed atm? If he is and gaining when maybe your milk is ok? A baby takes the same amount of milk at 6 months as 2 so you don't need to worry...
