    Re: pumping/expressing while in labor

    This sounds strange to me, I've never heard of this before. They don't sound very breastfeeding-friendly here to me. Do you think your OB could persuade them not to do this?

    I was allowed to...

    Re: Frequency and duration

    What you're describing is normal. As your baby gets older he will go longer between feedings ... and eventually you'll forget all about this. It is exhausting... is there someone you can have watch...

    Re: How to get baby on a schedule??

    My DS is 9 weeks old and he just has started his own schedule. We were frustrated in those earlier weeks becuase he was eating "at random" like you said. Also his sleep schedule was rather random.

    Re: Seems hopeless...

    Congrats on your little one! I am so sorry that you are having such an experience. My DS is 2 months old now, and when I was in those first few weeks of bf'ing, I felt the same way. I was in so...

    Re: Hair straightening agents and bf

    I would check with your doctor - but according to

    I suggested the water thing because I was dehydrated and that is what it was for me.

    Re: Sickness

    I hope you feel better soon! It definitely is hard to take care of a newborn when you aren't feeling well yourself.

    I had a cold several weeks ago (my ds is almost 9 weeks old) and he didn't...

    Re: 3.5 month old sleeping well

    My DS was sleeping a 5 hour stretch and nursing, and then again after 3 more hours. But the 6 week growth spurt hit, and he was up every 2 hours for a couple weeks, and now he is just back to every...
  9. Re: Fussy when nursing - cluster feeding or gas?

    My DS is similar to the previous post. I think he just wants to comfort suck after he is finished and when he continues to get milk he gets frustrated. At this point I burp him and give him a...

    Re: Pain when feeding..

    I also had pain until about week 4. Eventually it does go away - one day you will be nursing and just say, it does not hurt anymore!

    What got me through the pain was the packs that you can make...

    Re: When to intro bottle for EBM?

    I agree with the PP - wait until about 4-5 weeks or after...

    Last week I was concerned that my supply was dropping, since my DS didn't seem to be feeling well and was only nursing half as long for 2 days. When he was better, he had a ravenous appetite but it...
  14. Re: How do I know if my horns are too small??

    The pp's are right - you need a breastshield that fits properly. I was pumping with the standard size & my manual pump and I had bad pain that lasted after I pumped. After several weeks of using a...

    Re: When should I start pumping?

    I would start to pump now to start to build a milk stash before you go back to work.

    I started my DS on a bottle of EBM the first week because I had trouble with BF him in the beginning. Luckily...

    I have only been using the PIS for a week and a half. I figured maybe it had something to do with being used to the single (manual) pump, but I thought I would see if anyone else had the problem...

    My 7 week old son had a rough week, he was constipated for two days... he was very upset, and not feeling well, so his feedings were probably about 5 minutes each ... and since he wasn't feeling well...

    Re: Anything to prepare before birth?

    I agree with the PP. Having the support lined up beforehand would have helped me a lot in the early days.
