  1. Re: Nursing a 2 year old with no milk

    Thank you so much for your reply Mommal. You are so right. I don't want anything to change and if my son is happy then I am happy. I have another work trip coming up in October. Do you think I should...
  2. Nursing a 2 year old with no milk

    I recently stopped my domperidone because I hadn't had a PP period yet and my prolactin was very high. We want to start trying for a second child. The only big change I noticed was fewer letdowns and...

    Re: Weaning domperidone

    Dr. Newman suggested I just stay on the domperidone until my son weans. He thinks if it drops my supply my son will wean. I think I am going to have to cut back at least so I don't get clogged...

    Re: Weaning domperidone

    Thank you so much for the info! I had forgotten about Dr. Newman. I sent him an email asking him what he suggests. I hope I hear back from him.

    Weaning domperidone

    My son turns 1 on Sept 25 and I've been on domperidone since he was a few weeks old. Currently we nurse mornings, evenings and once overnight and during the day on weekends. I pump once at work...

    Re: Nursing Strike & Clogged Ducts

    I am having a similar problem but my baby will still nurse some of the time. I had my first clogged duct last weekend and it sucked. I've been using dreamfeeding as a way to get in more nursing...
  7. Re: Dropping a feed or nursing strike?

    He doesn't take bottles anymore, he only drinks milk from a sippy with meals. I think it might be partially due to having a snack too close to when I come home, but the issue is that I don't have a...
  8. Dropping a feed or nursing strike?

    *Sorry for the repeat topic. It seems like there are a lot of questions about nursing strikes and older babies right now.*

    My 11 month old has started refusing to nurse right when I get home from...
  9. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Yup, 4.5 oz. It's an easy time for me to get his supplement oz.

    It seems like he is only able to get a large amount of oz out of me when I'm engorged. Too bad I can't be engorged all the time. ...
  10. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    I pumped 3 times yesterday. After his morning feed, once in the afternoon and before going to bed.
  11. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Yes, I remember you saying that. :)

    We gave him the supplement at most of the feeds when he took less than 3 oz. So it was 4 feeds, with 1-2 oz. One feed he only transferred 1 oz.

    He ate only...
  12. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Thank you for your replies.

    The issue is that he is not averaging 24 oz a day. Yesterday he only took in around 20 oz on his own and we supplemented 5 oz. Maybe this is the best that we can do. ...
  13. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    So we got the scale on Wednesday and have been doing pre/post weights for a couple days. First feed of the day he gets 4-6 oz (probably because I'm engorged). After that, he is usually getting 2 oz...
  14. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    He weighed 8 lbs 14 at birth, went down to 8 lbs even.

    Last week at his 4 month appointment he was 13 lbs 4 oz, on the pedi scale, 13 lbs 2 on the BF group scale. He was 12 lbs 14 on the BF scale...
  15. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    So I'm trying not to panic, but according to the scale at our BF group, he lost 4 oz this week. The scale has been off before, but it's hard not to worry. My scale came today so we will be able to...
  16. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Well, I cannot thank you guys enough. Your advice has literally saved our nursing relationship.

    Once we stopped offering as much supplement, he became so much better at the breast. He is now...
  17. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Yes, mommal, we have a scale coming this week. I think it will be confidence boosting, as long as I don't get too obsessed with the numbers as Meg mentioned.

    After our morning feed, he ate again...
  18. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    I completely agree Meg. I have a totally unnatural association with his feeding and weight. Part of it comes come his low weight gain in the beginning and feeling guilty about him not getting...
  19. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    No, we did not supplement when we did the skin to skin. I totally get what you are saying with the pumping. Even though I hate pumping, I am emotionally attached to it because it was how I got my...
  20. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Thanks again for your reply. :)

    So last night we had a little nursing vacation in the living room on the LazyBoy. We nursed and napped and watched TV for several hours. He took less supplement...
  21. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Thanks so much Meg!

    I didn't mean to say that you were suggesting weaning the supplement. Our IBCLC wants us to start weaning it because she thinks he likely has bottle preference and doesn't...
  22. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Thanks again ladies.

    I do understand what djsmom is saying. I understand that 7 times a day is less than average and STTN is not usual for this age. It is however what my baby does at this...
  23. Re: 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    Thank you so much for your responses!

    I have considered renting a scale to do weighted feeds at home. I agree this would be a good idea.

    I understand exactly what you are saying Djs.mom. My...
  24. 4 month old only transfering 2 oz at breast

    We have a long history of problems BFing with my 4 month old DS. Low weight gain, painful nipples, long feeds. low supply. We had his PTT and ULT revised at 8 weeks but haven't seen any...
  25. Flow preference issues after supplementing for weight gain

    Long story short, we had low weight gain due to tongue tie, low supply and poor milk transfer. We started supplementing with an SNS but eventually went to the bottle on the recommendation of our...
