    Re: supplementing. .

    Now I'm not a Dr but I would say start pumping after feeding so that you can use expressed breast milk to supplement with. Possibly even mixing formula and breastmilk if you really do need to...
  2. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Ok today again very distractable popping off the breast a lot and I'm having trouble getting as much as I feel I should into him.
    Started using the new scale to do weigh/feed/weigh today though and...
  3. Re: Bad milk with too much foremilk and not enough hind milk

    Gotta be careful with the block nursing to make sure you don't over do it and wind up with low supply.

    A 4 month old only taking 5-10 minutes to nurse is not uncommon.

    Green frothy poop all on...

    Re: No poop 4 days!!!!

    Breastmilk is supposed to have a laxative effect which is why EBF babies are almost never constipated until they start eating solids or taking vitamin or supplements.

    Nothing is likely to be...

    Re: supplementing. .

    There are a bunch of questions the other ladies are going to ask I'm sure.

    How old is baby?
    What has her weight gain history been like?
    Can you see a lactation consultant locally? An IBCLC...
  6. Re: Back to work. Supply decreasing!!! Please help

    pausing has to be caregiver led and every few sucks, not waiting till baby pauses (because they often can't if the bottle flows too rapidly) Long break/pause for burping/switching sides each ounce....

    Re: Intro to bottles

    introducing bottles will likely NOT improve breastfeeding issues in my experience!
    Remember that whenever you feed the baby in any way other than at the breast, you need to pump to make up for it or...

    Re: I pumped 18 oz in one sitting

    many people do only 10-20 minute pumping sessions every 2-3 hours.
    sanitizing wipes and a cooler to keep pump parts in can help reduce the need for washing every single time.

    and practice hand...
  9. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    red streaks with an infection would make me seek medical advice and probably antibiotics.
  10. Re: Major Trouble Breastfeeding - Baby 6 Weeks Old...

    10 oz of weight gain in a week is actually really good weight gain. Average of 7-8 oz of weight gain in a week is actually really good.

    Remember to measure weight gain from the lowest weight (not...
  11. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Well today was odd. I only managed to push 3 oz of supplement into DS today and some of that I felt like I was being really sneaky trying to get it into him while he was trying to just nap latched...
  12. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    If being engorged is causing trouble getting baby latched on comfortably, perhaps you could pump just a little bit to just soften it up and get things flowing before trying to nurse. (of course...
  13. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    My understanding is that hand expression/massage is less likely to stimulate increased production as much as pumping will.
    If you want to increase production on just one side I think you might need...

    Meg,
    Aprox 1 oz = 30 ml
  15. Re: How much expressed milk per bottle?

    Offering to feed at every little fuss isn't as big a problem as if they are not doing paced bottle feeding or if they are pushing him to finish the bottles. At least if you send small bottles and...
  16. Re: How much expressed milk per bottle?

    make sure the inlaws understand and use paced bottle feeding. If they are just pouring the bottles into him without any pauses, then it will seem like he could take a large amount and still seem...
  17. Re: Pedi says DD not gaining enough? Pls advice.

    Hang in there momma! Sounds like things are already rebounding. Good to hear you have already found another Ped.
    Since you were feeding on demand the first few weeks it should be easier to bring...

    acupuncture

    My personal problem has been with low supply and underactive letdown. In my search for help I eventually tried acupuncture.
    It has only been 48 hours since the second treatment so I'm not drawing...
  19. Re: Acupuncture for increasing milk supply and flow

    I would venture to say that if some one is having difficulty with plugs that acupuncture might be a real help and definitely if some one is having problems with recurring mastitis that it may be very...
  20. Re: Acupuncture for increasing milk supply and flow

    Well we are a day after my 2nd acupuncture treatment and I feel I should probably give another day before I make a final conclusion.
    However, preliminary conclusion is it did help improve my milk...
  21. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    So now figuring my storage capacity is probably around 2 oz on the Left and 3 oz on the Right. This because we went for a longer than normal stretch last night I was engorged by the morning feed and...

    Re: 10 wo sending mixed signals

    How is his weight gain? Is nursing comfortable?

    Have you tried wearing him in a carrier, wrap, sling or K'tan, then you can be up and around while he sleeps next to...

    Re: My fussy babes with green poo

    teething and drooling could cause it, and also the night and daytime fussies
  24. Re: Overactive let-down and clogged ducts on one side

    I expect Meg will come along with links about block feeding, it is only appropriate if your problem really is overproduction and not just OALD.
  25. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    got a baby scale coming tomorrow
