    Re: Day one was a bust

    Any chance of hubby bringing your LO to you at work for a quick feed? I usually work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and I will go to my sitter's and feed my LO twice during that time. You just might be able...

    Re: 3 mos old screams on one side only

    I would keep offering that side, particularly when your LO is sleepy. My LO did this for a little while when he was about 3 weeks old, but I never could figure out what was wrong. Have you ruled out...

    Re: Not eating enough!

    The first thing I would check is to see if perhaps he isn't feeling well. Is he eating any solids? How much is his bottle intake? When you try to nurse, does he seems fussy or simply uninterested? I...
  5. Re: Afteroon Fussiness - Growth Spurt? (long)

    My LO is 12 weeks old, and I have noticed that there are some afternoons where he is so fussy that the only thing that satisfies him is to nurse constantly. Can you describe the fussy episodes a bit...

    Re: Milk Blister

    I understand exactly how you feel. I ended up with two milk blisters on my nipple over Mother's Day weekend. Mine ended up popping, which made the pain excruciating when my LO latched on. I...

    Re: Ow clogged ducts

    During a ped visit this week, I asked the doc to take a look at my breast to see if he could detect any signs of infection. I had two milk blisters over Mother's Day weekend that ended up popping,...
  8. Re: panic----have to be away for 1 week very soon

    Is there any way you can take a babysitter with you who can stay with your LO at a hotel? That way you can still continue to feed your baby without worrying about your supply. Have you been separated...

    Re: Too much weight?

    I am so glad that you have asked this question. I took my LO to the ped yesterday and at 12 weeks, he weighs 18 pounds, 1 ounce! He was 10 pounds, 7 ounces at birth.

    My LO is 11 weeks old, and over the weekend he suddenly began sleeping through the night. I thought there might be something wrong, but after checking everything from temperature to the phase of the...

    Nipple problem

    I posted last week about two blisters on my nipple. They ended up popping, and although that was probably a good thing, I am left with a very sore nipple. The area where the blisters were is a bit...

    Re: Formula at the Dr's!

    When I got home from the hospital, I quickly packed up all the formula samples to avoid any kind of temptation, especially during those difficult early days of nursing. If you don't have formula and...

    Nipple blisters

    I have two small clear blisters that popped up on my nipple. They are apparently the result of a marathon nursing session Friday evening in which my 10-week-old LO would fall asleep and as I got...

    Sleeping a lot

    My 10-week-old LO has been sleeping a lot the past two days. He had been ill with a cold earlier in the week with a lot of congestion and a slight fever. I took him to the ped who told me to watch...

    Re: Incredibly gassy baby...help?

    Have you tried any of the gas drops? My 4-week-old seems to have the most gas in the mornings and it breaks my heart to hear him cry as he strains to get things moving. I have noticed that it seems...

    I will be going back to work when my LO is eight weeks old. I am planning to continue nursing by going to him throughout the day when the sitter calls (or based around my schedule). As a result, I...

    Breastfeeding and my diet

    My 3-week-old has been struggling with gas all day and has failed in his efforts to generate a poopy diaper today. He has managed to create a few smudges, but nothing like what I would call a regular...
