    Re: Gain of 5oz in 2 months??

    Block Feeding is where you feed from the same breast for a certain length (or block) of time. It can help a baby whose mother is making a lot of milk and the baby isn't able to drink enough to be...

    Re: Gain of 5oz in 2 months??

    Your son's nursing pattern seems quite normal. I'm not surprised that he is so efficient at nursing (2 minutes a side). Some babies are just that quick. You could try to offer him the first side...

    Re: Milk coming out of where???

    Happens to me too. I think that it is the Montgomery gland producing oils for lubrication and cleaning. Thoughts?

    Re: Hair loss and BF...

    My hair is finally growing back in. (I have a nine month old.) I have about one inch of new growth all over my head. The shorter haircut helps. It really is just all of the hair that you didn't loose...
  6. Re: Relactation War Room! (Think this can work for me?)

    It is going to take patience and persistence. I wouldn't let her cry at the breast since you don't want that association. You know your baby best; if she gets hysterical, then be sure to not push her...

    Re: Treating like a newborn

    Every woman is different. If 2.5 oz per pumping is normal for you, then it is normal. I do think that 6-8 oz is closer to a record for most than a norm.



    Pumping after a feeding would...

    Re: 8 month old starting to bite

    I have a now 8 month old. Last month she was really into biting. It got so bad that I was afraid to nurse her. She really hurt me one time because I pulled away as she bit. I ended up with a cut...

    Re: large breast

    Be very careful to not let the baby latch on incorrectly. This can cause damage to your nipples. I know that it can be tempting because it can be nearly impossible to latch the baby with hardened...

    Re: exclusive breastfeeding...how long?

    My first ate her first solids at 7 months, we noticed allergies right away and then didn't try again until she was 11 months because she really didn't seem interested. When she was 11 months old she...

    Re: wierd leaking question

    Most women leak in the early weeks of breastfeeding. However, some women don't stop leaking. From my understanding, leaky breasts are just that: leaky breasts. They are not a good indicator of...

    Re: Hiccups?

    My daughter used to get the hiccups after nearly every feeding too. I found that it I offered her the breast once more for just a little sip that the hiccups would go away. I don't know exactly why...

    Re: Average Feeds short times

    Every child is different.

    My first was the way you are describing your son to be. She nursed every 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours (but usually every 1 hour and 50 minutes). I nursed her on both sides every...
  14. Re: Need to vent - and how often do you feed a 2 month old baby?

    Your mother just admitted that she has never done anything different than feed a baby every 4 hours and yet she knows the outcome of nursing a baby every 2-3 hours. I would be more apt to trust the...

    Re: cofused again

    Oh, I see that your son was born in May. I thought that I read March. I still think that he's having a growth spurt though. :)

    Re: cofused again

    If he is three months old, he is probably having a growth spurt like you suggested. Babies have growth spurts at 3 weeks, 6 weeks, and 3 months. Your body will make the extra milk that he needs. Hang...

    Hang in there sweety. My first baby was really fussy. I know frustrating it can be.

    With the problems you are describing, your breastmilk is the best option for your son. Try to keep his head...

    Re: Menstration returning

    With my first I went 13 months without a period, with my second I began bleeding again almost right away. I called for nurse advise because I thought that something might be wrong; it was too soon....

    Re: Is this oversupply?

    The fact the he is already one taking one side at a feeding is a good thing. It sounds like you might need to maximize the amount of hindmilk that he gets. This will also help slow down your foremilk...
  20. Re: "Teaching" a 2 yr old to latch properly

    My 2 1/2 year old used to leave teeth marks on me too (at every nursing.) At the time, I believed it to be how her mouth was growing. It always looked painful to see her two front teeth impressed...

    Re: Is this oversupply?

    Sounds like it could be oversupply. What is your son's current nursing pattern? (How often? How long? Do you offer both sides at each feeding?)

    Re: Night nursing at 32 months

    This is what worked for us. At the time my daughter slept side car. (On my side.) We switched places in the bed so that my daughter would need to climb over my husband in order to nurse. I also...
  23. Re: Regreting my decision t wean and I am Morning......

    It doesn't seem strange to me that you might cry while weaning. Hormones could be a factor. It sounds like things might have happened a little faster than your body was prepared for. Good luck with...

    Re: pumping causing oversupply?

    It sounds like feeding one breast at a time is working well for you. I nursed my second daughter that way. It was much more convenient (especially in public). I think that if you pay close attention...

    Re: Formilk/Hindmilk Imbalance?

    I would just like to encourage you. 2-4 ounces of supplimentation for a 9 week old is really doing great. It is not that much at all. Our bodies make around 32 ounces a day. So if you are only...
