  1. Re: Distracted nurser not gaining enough weight

    Have you tried taking him into a dark, quiet room when it's time to nurse?
  2. Re: Newborn spits up during the day and NOT night

    That's great! If you find that the spit-up returns- and it often does when a baby starts squirming in new ways or rolling over- please don't let it phase you. In an otherwise healthy and growing...

    Re: Confusing 3 day old!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Has your milk come in yet? (That is, has it increased markedly in quantity and changed from clear yellowish colostrum to creamy yellow-white transitional milk?) And has...

    Re: Constant crying

    Welcome to the forum!

    How has your baby's weight gain been? How many times per day does he nurse? Anything else going on that strikes you as out of the ordinary? And how old is your baby now?

    Re: A Little Overwhelmed

    Right?!!!

    I think your doc struck out here, mama. If your nipples are blistered and cracked to the point where they split open, you're probably not talking about a "little" tongue tie. And as...
  6. Re: Increase or decrease pumping frequency for a sick baby?

    Hi mama, welcome to the forum! I am so sorry about your baby's bout with C. diff. Has anyone suggested a stool transplant for her? This is a decent link:...

    Re: Is it normal?

    This sort of thing is common. I wouldn't say it's a "sensory thing" because that makes it sound pathological. How about calling it a texture issue, instead? We all have textures we like and ones...

    Re: very low milk supply at 6 weeks

    Excellent post from LLLMeg, above.

    Just one more question- did anyone ever check you for retained placenta? Having a piece of placenta still hanging around convinces your body that you're still a...

    Re: Anyone with tubular breasts?

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

    I'm not a mom with tubular breasts, so hopefully it's okay if I answer your questions from an academic rather than a personal...

    Re: Block Feeding How To

    It can be difficult to rebuild supply in certain circumstances. A mom who is home full-time with her baby, whose baby is a good nurser, and who is nursing on demand will have little or no trouble...

    Re: new mom and confused with feeding

    :ita with LLLMeg. Especially regarding the timing of feedings!

    WRT demand feeding, you want to feed on demand from the very beginning as long as that means the baby is nursing enough- which, as...

    Re: Block Feeding How To

    It's not easy! Oversupply and allergy are easily confused and can co-occur. I think the best way to determine what is going on is to first evaluate the baby's symptoms. If you have a happy,...

    Re: Baby Boycotting Bottles!

    Just what I was thinking. You could even make yogurt out of it.

    Have you checked your EBM for taste issues?

    Re: Relactation possible

    The more you pump, and the longer you pump for, the sooner you'll see milk and the more you'll get. I'd aim for 10-20 minute sessions, and if you can swing 10-12 sessions per day, awesome. But...
  17. Re: looking for the perfect breastfeeding relationship

    What is it with these grabby grandparents? They got their chance to play mommy and daddy when they raised their kids. Now it's your turn, and you do not owe your parents or your in-laws a whole...
  18. Re: White nipples when pumping & low milk supply

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!

    The most likely explanation for the white nipple you're seeing is something called a vasospasm, which is a sudden and usually quite...

    Re: Relactation possible

    How generous of you to help your friend!

    The best thing you can do is to pump frequently using a good pump with correctly fitting shields. A newborn baby typically nurses around 10-12 times a...

    Re: Solids and a petite baby

    Sounds like a good plan!

    Until a year, breastmilk or formula alone are enough to meet all a baby's nutritional needs. So at this point, solids are for fun with new tastes, textures, and motor...
