  1. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    I'm thinking of throwing in the towel again. :cry

    Although DS seems to be nursing better, he is still not gaining enough weight and neither of us are getting much sleep because he is waking up...
  2. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Just another update in case anyone is still looking at this thread. DS actually started trying to nurse at night without the lactaid, which was pretty unbelievable to me, considering how attached he...
  3. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks for sharing your story! Good to know I am not alone. I have decided to just continue using the lactaid for the time being. DS will not nurse without it, and honestly I am a little tired of...
  4. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Just another quick update: DS is no longer fussy at the breast, he is nursing well with the supplementer and he is gaining weight. In short, we are doing great. The only issue I'm having now is that...
  5. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks for the encouragement, sixyear! We are still doing well. The hardest thing for me right now is that he keeps popping on and off the breast and crying, particularly in the afternoon and...
  6. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks for your encouragement, sixyear. We are continuing to do really well. Although he continues to pop off the breast to complain about having to work so hard, eventually he settles down and gets...
  7. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks, Jess. Your story is very encouraging. I am trying to breastfeed him as much as possible using the Lact-Aid right now. When I have tried exclusively breastfeeding him in the past, he was just...
  8. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks. I will try that the next time I bottlefeed him. I did use the slow flow nipple today and he took it fine.

    And thanks so much for the suggestion about the Lact-Aid. We started using it...
  9. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Not silly at all. I read about it online. Basically, you are trying to recreate the birth experience. It was important for me because I had an unwanted (though completely medially necessary)...
  10. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks for these suggestions. I will try them. We are not using a slow-flow nipple any more. I don't remember why we switched exactly, but I'll give it a shot again.

    Re: Hygeia

    I have the EnJoye and I really like it. The only other pump I've used is a Lactinah I rented from the hospital and the EnJoye is a lot more comfortable for me. I was actually able to get more milk...
  12. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Just a quick update -- We did the "rebirth" this morning in the bathtub and just when I was about to give up, he latched on. :happytears

    I tried the SNS this morning, and I remembered why I hate...
  13. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Thanks for sharing this. That is very encouraging.
  14. Re: EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    I never tried a lactaid. I'd never heard of it before, but I looked it up online and it looks similar to the SNS. What is the difference?

    Thanks for the tip on cosleeping. I may give that a try,...
  15. EPer thinking of trying BFing again -- please help!

    Sorry this is going to be a long one, but I wanted to include as many of the relevant details as possible.

    DH and I tried for over a year to get pregnant without success. We started to see an IF...
