    Re: Mastitis... again?!

    I get not wanting to take ABs. But it is possible the fussiness you are seeing is entirely coincidental. Even if the abs are causing some issue for baby, gut health balance will be rapidly restored...
  2. Re: No interest in feeding, poor weight gain

    Ok, wow, your baby was weighed ALOT!

    I am American. I do not think in metric so I will have to convert all those kg to pounds and ounces to make sense of them. I am sorry, but even those dates...
  3. Re: Please help! On verge of quitting. Baby has ?allergy

    Hi I can see you are frustrated. It is hard when we are doing our best for our babies yet they do not appear happy. However, precious few babies in the newborn period are NOT fussy and gassy most of...
  4. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    Well, the idea that a baby sucking their hands is a hunger cue is something that has always bothered me. Sure, if baby is hungry, they might suck their hands. Of course. But since babies suck on...

    Re: Mammary hypoplasia

    Hi Nap.

    I think at this point, it is impossible to say what exactly is going on. It sounds like you have had many issues that might have led to not the best milk production outcome, no matter...
  6. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    Do you mean the tongue has a heart shape? With the "tip" of the tongue making the top indent of the heart?

    And all I can say is that a baby who has just had 4 ounces to eat is not starving or...
  7. Re: Baby won't latch right not even with nipple shield

    It really sounds like you are on the right track. I agree about the lactation aid, no need at this point since you and baby are making good progress.
    It is nice that there are tools. When used...
  8. Re: Constant nursing with 27 month old

    It's normal. And there is nothing in any way wrong with breastfeeding, it is an entirely healthy activity. Just as there can not be too many hugs or too much healthy food, there cannot be too much...
  9. Re: Baby won't latch right not even with nipple shield

    It really sounds like you have made progress. That is great. I know you have a long way to go, but it really sounds like you are doing excellent considering the challenges.

    I will try to offer...
  10. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    I am hoping you are perhaps turning a corner. Hang in there, I know it is so hard. I was a madwoman the first 4 weeks or so of my oldest baby's life. Getting those little stretches of sleep can be...

    Re: Mastitis... again?!

    Mastitis can be cleared up without abs in SOME cases. Since you have caught this early, especially, there is a chance.

    The cure is simple- empty breast, lots of rest. This means, encourage baby...
  12. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    Baby is what- about 2 or three weeks old now? That is the age a baby typically kind of "wakes up" and starts nursing like mad, wants to nurse all the time, and cries if they are taken off the breast....
  13. Re: Need help- pumping makes my breast lumpy &can't get milk

    Your child is not going to go hungry if you pump an ounce or two a day to freeze. I assume you want to do this to build up a freezer stash ahead of returning to work?

    Just try to pump is soon...

    Re: Storing/using "used" breastmilk

    The general recommendation is that a bottle of breastmilk that has been drunk from can be put in the fridge and used again "for the next feeding." I think the concern with using it beyond that is...

    Re: Relactating after menopause

    I think everything suggests a schedule because people are in general more comfortable with schedules. You are absolutely correct that overall frequency of pumping/hand expression is what is important...
  16. Re: Baby won't latch right not even with nipple shield

    Hi cjuch, I am glad you bumped your post as it was clearly missed. That said, it is a week old. Is everything exactly the same?

    Overall, I think it is obvious the nipple shield is not working....
  17. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    Check on pump manufacturer website or customer service (or an IBCLC, best) but yes, that sounds like they may be too large. Here is a graphic on flange size from Ameda (one pump company)...
  18. Re: No interest in feeding, poor weight gain

    Hi and welcome!
    It is normal for weight gain rate to slow down after 3-4 months of age. If it did not, toddlers would be enormous and 5 year olds would rule the earth.
    It does sound like the gain...
  19. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    I am sorry I did not understand the weights correctly.

    this all must be very frustrating-

    It is normal for 2 week old babies to be hungry and want to nurse/eat most of the time.

    Spitting...
  20. Re: Daycare asking to supplement baby with formula!

    Wow, that is wild. I worked in daycare years ago and we NEVER would have dreamed in a thousand years to tell a mother what to feed her child at home! Home was home and 100% not our business. Good for...

    Re: Latch after nipple shield

    Hi I also used nipple shields in the early weeks with my oldest. I get being over it!

    I found I had to be persistent but patient. I tried every day to get baby to latch without the shield,...
  22. Re: Baby not latching from one breast

    I think that generally speaking the two most common causes of baby refusing one side is 1) Baby cannot get a good latch on that side or 2) Baby can latch but the flow is either too fast or too slow....

    Re: Feeling frustrated

    If only I could have mustered this much insight and wisdom when my first baby was only 5 weeks old! It took me ages and ages to figure out that I was much happier when I trusted my baby and my...
  24. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    How is it going?

    I am taking a gander at those weight checks and wow, they are wonky. I have never heard of a baby gaining weight between birth weight and day two- this period is usually when...
  25. Re: 2 weeks of bloody, mucusy poops at 4 months

    Viral diarrhea does not clear up in a few days. It can hang around for at 3 or 4 weeks sometimes. From Dr. Sears: (askdrsears.com) WHEN NOT TO WORRY: A diarrhea illness can often persist for a few...
