  1. Re: Has biting caused a nursing strike?

    Thanks for your reply Alphawoman. I'm happy to say that he fed as normal before bed, and things have been fine ever since. He has clamped down a little hard a couple of times, but no biting :-)
  2. Has biting caused a nursing strike?

    My son just turned 1 and recently has bitten me a couple of times, but not too hard. Today however was different. When I offered the breast this morning, instead of latching on he looked at my...
  3. Question about protein intake for breastfed 1 year old

    Hi, I'm looking for advice please.

    My son is nearly a year old and has been eating solids since he was 6 months old. We are doing BLS and he took to it really well, trying most things. His weight...
  4. Starting solids and sippy cup question

    My DS is almost 6 months old and is more or less exclusively breastfed - we had a nightmare to begin with and I was in pain for the first 3/4 months, so I am very proud to have made it this far! :)

  5. Re: Does this look like a lip tie? And to treat or not to tr

    Thanks Jenna. I heard back from Dr Kotlow but his reply was a little unclear, he said it is only significant if it is affecting nursing or if it causes a gap when teeth come through :confused:
  6. Does this look like a lip tie? And to treat or not to treat?

    My son is 4 1/2 months old and we had a lot of pain breastfeeding from the start. He had a 50/60% tongue tie diagnosed and treated at 3 weeks, it was treated again at 5 weeks as there had been some...
  7. Re: Stressful bedtime routine with bottle of expressed BM by

    Up until last week (my son is now 4 1/2 months old) my DH was giving a bottle before bed and I was pumping - this was mainly because we had serious latch issues for over 3 months and I was in a lot...
  8. Re: Spacing out feedings to get a better latch?

    My son had tongue tie, and having it clipped (twice) didn't seem to help that much. We also had several sessions of cranial osteopathy and there was a VERY gradual improvement, but I honestly don't...
  9. Re: Residual tongue tie, lip tie, high palate. :drop

    I'm sorry things are so hard for you. I have just posted a thread on here about how it finally got better for us around 4 months. Interestingly I noticed yesterday that there seems to be some degree...

  11. Re: Fixing bad latch in 3 month old

    I was still in pain at 3 months, it only really stopped hurting around 3 1/2 - 4 months. My son did have tongue tie and had it clipped (twice), and we had several sessions of cranial osteopathy, but...
  12. Feel like quitting? Don't - IT DOES GET BETTER!!!

    I haven't posted on here for a little while but wanted to offer support to anyone who is struggling with nipple pain/damage, due to a bad latch, and is losing hope that it will ever get better. I...
  13. Re: 14 weeks old - can I send hospital pump back and use min

    Thanks Mommal :) I still feel we have a way to go, but when this is all over (i.e. when he can latch well, or he isweaned) I guess I will look back and be proud we made it.

    Great idea about the...
  14. 14 weeks old - can I send hospital pump back and use mine?

    To cut a long story short, from the start my son had latch issues related to tongue tie, a slightly recessed jaw, and tightness due to a forceps delivery. I won't go into detail but here are the...

    Re: Is it possible...

    I could have written your post myself! My son is nearly 12 weeks old and we have very similar issues. He had his tongue tie diagnosed and clipped at 3 weeks of age, unfortunately scar tissue formed...
  16. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Thanks phi. I do try to get out most days but don't feel I can go far. It's not the embarrasment of NIP, more that I think I won't be able to latch him on. I have to admit that I have more or less...
  17. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Thanks both :) He is 10 weeks old today. Is it still possible that his latch can improve, or is it unlikely to at this age? I am trying so hard to be strong but the slow progress really gets me down...
  18. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Well, I'm not sure how to feel about today. Toby did a HUGE bowel movement this morning, and his poops and pees have been good all week, so I was hoping his weight gain was good. But he only put on...
  19. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Thanks, I do get him weighed each week, so probably won't get the scale. But thanks for the suggestion.

    His eyes and mouth look ok to me, and his stools aren't green. I do try to keep him on one...
  20. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Oh, and I didn't mean to dismiss what you said - it may be a growth spurt, teething etc. - I just can't help worrying so am looking for more reassurance, I guess.

    I do have a sling but don't think...
  21. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Thanks Phi.

    I am still feeling quite nervous about the whole thing. I don't know if I'm just more aware of his behaviour because I have stopped the bottles, but he seems more crabby the last 2...
  22. Re: 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    Thanks phi :) Just wanted to add a couple of things:

    I am no longer engorged as Toby has been feeding a lot today, although I do get engorged at night, especially 2 nights ago when he slept for 5...
  23. Re: 3 weeks old and seems like three weeks of problems

    I am very new to BF and have had considerable problems myself, but I noticed that my baby would also prefer one side, and he would also prefer to turn his head to one side when he was lying down. We...
  24. 2 months, finally getting better! But q's about supply

    I'm not sure if this should go here, in the pumping section, or the too much milk section, so please move it if it is in the wrong place :)

    Toby is 2 months old today and breastfeeding has been an...
  25. Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*

    Things are still going well :) He had a bottle before bed last night and I pumped to give my nipples a break. We had some expressed milk on standby for the night, but I managed to BF him and he...
