    Re: Thinking about relactating..

    Thanks for thinking of me. After long discussions with my DH and the doula I decided that I just can't emotionally handle relactating now. DD is much happier with the bottle than the breast and I...

    Re: Thinking about relactating..

    Thanks so much for the quick reply. In answer to your questions..

    It has been 2 weeks since DD has nursed, even comfort nursing (which she didn't do too much of when she was nursing).

    It has...

    Thinking about relactating..

    Hi, I haven't been on the message boards for about 2 weeks since I decided to stop breastfeeding. My DD and I had been struggling with OALD and over supply and I finally just decided that it might...

    Re: Schedule for feeding and changing diapers

    I agree with pp, you need to find what works best for you and your lo. For us it is changing in the middle (or so) of a feeding. It seems my DD needs to take a break when she's eating and...

    Re: I need help with screaming baby!

    Same thing happens with my DD. It usually is only 1 feeding during the day, but I too think its due to gas and tiredness. I think that when she is very tired she is less able to handle my OALD and...

    Re: Nocturnal grazing

    Re: needs multivitamin??

    My ped recommended vitamins from week 1 and I have been giving my DD them. They don't seem to upset her stomach at all. After your post, Ailish's Mom, I decided to do a little research myself. ...

    block feeding questions

    I have been dealing with oversupply and OALD for a couple of weeks now. I have been block feeding by only offering one breast per feeding (so its a 2 to 3 hour block depending on the time of day). ...

    Re: Nocturnal grazing

    I am going through the same thing right now too, though my DD is only 7 weeks. Starting this past Sunday her sleep habits have been completely different. Prior to Sunday she was sleeping 4.5 to 5...

    Re: No comfort nursing?

    My 7 week old DD is the same way and I am happy to hear that she is not alone. I have OALD which she has become used to and is now getting her full in about 10 minutes. After trying to to feed her...

    Re: fixing a bad latch habit

    Just wanted to say "thanks" paint-the-moon for your advice on the nipple sandwich and the links in your post. The sandwich has helped us already. I now only have to relatch her 2 or 3 times at the...

    Re: help!

    So glad to hear things are starting to get better. I just wanted to add that I have OALD and when my DD starts fussing and figthing at the breast (and no burping, diaper change, or switching breasts...

    Re: fixing a bad latch habit

    My DD had the same problem. She would open and close her mouth quickly and not want to open wide to latch on. A LC suggested that I try two things when I wasn't nursing: 1. stroke her lips with my...

    Re: incorrect latch with side-lying position

    I was just going to post a thread on side-lying feeding as I haven't tried it yet and wanted to get some ideas for how to correctly position myself and DD. So thanks for your question, Aleina's_Mom,...
  17. Re: How do you keep your supply up to handle cluster feedings?

    I agree with what LaurasMom mentioned about fussing being a way to wind down at night. My almost 7 week old DD is fussy every evening (we seem to be in the peak fussiness period). I've tried...

    Re: 4 week old spitting up like crazy

    I think your guess that your milk is coming out too fast and he's getting too much may be correct. My DD (6 weeks) also spits up a lot, but mostly when she nurses on the right. I know that my flow...

    Re: 5 week old fussy feeder.

    I understand what you mean about not wanting to give her a pacifier. You could also try letting her suck on your finger. I do this sometimes and if it seems like she wants to suck for a long time,...
  20. Re: Survey: Curious, who or what inspired you to b/f?

    I don't think it was ever a question, I just knew that I would try to breastfeed. My mom didn't breastfeed me or my brothers and my DH's mom didn't breastfeed so there wasn't much family support. ...

    I have been having the same problems with my 6 week old DD. I realized that I do have OALD and feeding uphill has seemed to help. Also taking her off and letting the milk spray into a burp cloth...

    My DD had the same problem in the beginning. I found it was very helpful to have someone (my DH or mother) hold her arm out of the way against my chest. After awhile she seemed to learn that her...

    Re: oversupply and pumping

    I was doing that before, but I was pumping both sides and pretty much emptying both breasts. I think I'll try just pumping the side that is missing the feeding while DH gives her a bottle.
