    Dropping percentiles

    I took DS #2 for his 9 month visit today. At 9 months he is 19.2 lbs and 28 inches, which are 28th and 40th percentile, respectively. He's been steadily declining on both - his weight was 90th...

    Re: Constipation?

    Nope, no solids, no formula. Just breastmilk.

    Constipation?

    So, I thought that BF babies were not supposed to get constipated, but my DS (5 months next week) seems to swing back and forth between not pooping for a day or two and then having multiple blowout...

    Re: Making himself sick?

    I think you are right. This was my concern from the very beginning but the doctor seemed to think he would grow out of it. To an extent things are better, in that he doesn't cry after every feeding...

    Making himself sick?

    So, I know infants are supposed to self-regulate, but here is my situation. DS #2 (4 months) will only go to sleep while eating. It can be during BF or with a bottle of expressed milk, but he seems...
  6. Questions about starting to pump

    I've done this before with DS #1 but I have absolutely no memory of when/how I started pumping and we introduced bottles. DS #2 is now 4 weeks and I'm going back to work in another 6 weeks. When...

    Re: Baby cries after every feeding

    I'm willing to let him go up to 3 or 3 1/2 hours between daytime feedings (which is basically his limit anyway) and longer at night (though I think the best he's done at night is 4).

    He does...

    Re: Baby cries after every feeding

    Nope, poop is totally normal. Mustardy and seedy. Maybe a little more liquidy than I remember, but definitely not green or frothy.

    Baby cries after every feeding

    My three week old is not a happy camper after he eats. After most feedings, he has incredibly loud burps, spits up, often gets the hiccups, and seems to be straining to pass gas or poop. His tummy...

    Engorgement - please help!

    I am so uncomfortable! DS (2 weeks) only feeds on one side during each feeding, which means that by the time he eats off of the other breast again I am in a lot of pain. He gained 10 oz from his 1...
  12. One week old - does this sound like reflux?

    Hi everyone,

    I haven't been around these forums much lately (DS #1 is 3 1/2 and weaned at 13 months, so it's been a while)... However, I now have a second DS, born 9 days ago. On the one hand, BF...

    Re: Maternity Leave?

    I got 8 weeks at full pay and took another 4 weeks paid vacation, so I was out a total of 12 weeks. I had the option to take those last 4 weeks as unpaid leave or to use my vacation time, and since...

    Re: New here, Question.

    Are you looking for advice for staying comfortable while your body gets used to weaning? Or are you still planning to pump some and try to retain your milk supply.

    Assuming it is the former, I...

    Re: night weaning age?

    DS was night weaned consistently by 9 months, but I used a paci and he didn't co-sleep, which I know is different from many others here. Starting at about 6 months he only woke once per night. I...
  17. Dropped last session - what happens now?

    As of this AM, I think we're done. I've been gradually weaning DS and my milk supply has been dropping. Last week he refused the before bed session (mad that my breasts were soft and letdown was...

    Dropping the before bed feeding

    I've been continuing to BF my 13 month old before bed at night and first thing in the AM. He eats a lot of solids and drinks water and a little milk from a sippy during the day but has refused to...

    This is heartbreaking

    My son (age 1) has suddenly decided to stop taking a bottle from his caregiver while I am at work during the day. We've always put him down awake, and he's been fine not having that bottle before...

    Re: Milk? Won't drink it!!

    Thanks! That makes me feel better!

    Now, if only someone could suggest how I could "hide" the month's worth of EBM I have in the freezer in my son's food so it won't go to waste...

    I worked so...

    Re: Milk? Won't drink it!!

    I'm having a similar problem. My son (age 1) recently decided to stop taking his usual 2 bottles per day of EBM and will not drink anything but water out of a sippy cup. Smart boy that he is, he...
