    Re: Leaking--Does It Ever Stop?

    We've been nursing for 3 months and it's better than it used to be but I still leak fairly regularly. Not bad enough to wear pads all the time though, just when I go out somewhere. But when he...

    Re: Supply issues today HELP!!!

    Just a thought--could it be she's in a growth spurt and just wanting to nurse all the time right now? You might not think she's getting anything, but I seriously doubt she'd stay on that long if she...

    Re: we are haven a problem.....

    Ditto to what "home executive" wrote. I had that problem a lot around month 2 (growth spurt) and then again at month three. It will get better, just feed on demand and keep switching sides and doing...
  4. Re: My DD makes clicking noises and has cheek dimpiling

    I don't know about the clicking thing as my LO just started that too. But he's doing pretty well otherwise. Nursing for less than 5 minutes per side is not a bad sign per se, unless she's not really...

    Re: Night Time Nursing

    Oh dear, I'm afraid I'm also having problems. My LO also loves to sleep with me (3 months old). He wakes every 3 hours to feed and when I try to put him back in his crib (because I don't sleep well...
  6. Re: Is everyone lying about sleeping throught the night??

    I'm in the same boat as you, wondering when on earth my precious LO will sleep through the night like so many people think he should. He's now 3 months old and still wakes every 2-4 hours at night...

    Everything is turning upside down...

    We've had our share of struggles with breast feeding (BF) early on, but the last few weeks have been pretty pleasurable. Jayden (12.5 weeks old) has been happy and contented after feedings and...

    Re: Less feedings now--affect supply?

    Hi again, well in the last 27 days he's gained approximately 0.66 oz. per day overall (breast feeding only), which isn't too bad. However, during the last 18 days he's only gained about 0.40 oz per...

    Re: Less feedings now--affect supply?

    Hi, thanks for the feedback and links to info. He's definitely peeing enough, I've even weighed his diapers! He pees between 6-7 good diapers a day. And poops enough too. But I AM concerned about his...

    Less feedings now--affect supply?

    My LO is 11.5 weeks old now and he's going longer between feedings. A month ago he was still getting in 9-12 feedings per 24-hour period. Just the last couple weeks he's only been doing 6-7, and now...

    Re: Bottle vs. Breast

    My LO reacts very similar to the bottle. He gets easily impatient at the breast. I find that with him I can't give any bottles if I want BF to go well. You might want to try a feeding tube (SNS) or...

    Why isn't he gaining weight?

    We supplemented my LO for about 6 weeks starting about 2 weeks after my his birth because of perceived low milk supply. That's a whole other story, but to make it short we have been pretty much...

    I know how frustrating this can be, believe me! We've gone through it too, although my LO was gaining weight better than yours. But I also had supply issues and baby would fuss at the breast and claw...

    Re: Baby only feeding for 5 mins!

    Just wondering if you have tried expressing milk from the used breast after he detaches just to see there's a lot left in there or not? You can either pump or hand express. I notice that if I hand...

    Peeing but not pooping enough?

    Hi, my first post here!

    I just weaned my infant (8 weeks old tomorrow) off all supplements and we are back to only breast milk. It was a hard process, because my milk supply was so low in the...
  24. Re: Baby constantly pulling off and wanting back on

    My LO (8 weeks) like to do that too, but it's a lot better since I weaned him off the bottle. Also, he likes to just pull and stretch the nipple and push with his legs, it really hurts sometimes! I...
