    Re: Jaundice

    Maybe you should ask your doctor what level he wants to see in order for her to be considered low risk. I feel like 12 was the magic number for us, but I can't remember for sure. He should be going...

    Re: Jaundice

    Her numbers are okay but she still has a little tint of yellow? What do her feet and legs look like? Are they pink? The color clears from the bottom up, so her little face is going to be the last...
  3. Re: Breastfeeding on just one breast at a time per feeding

    My son never took 2 breast per feeding and so far my daughter is doing the same thing. When I tried for force DS to take both sides per feeding session (because that is what I thought I was supposed...

    Re: Solids at 4 Months???

    I don't know why this subject really gets under my skin. It has been the AAP recommendation for quite a few years now that babies drink only breastmilk or formula for the first 6 months, and yet so...

    Re: Breast feeding painful

    With my second baby I had some pretty bad nipple trauma, like you are describing. This wasn't my first experience with BFing, so I knew she had a somewhat shallow latch and we were working on it,...

    Re: Crying over spilled milk

    I was trying to build a freezer stash so I could go on a weekend trip to a friend's wedding when I spilled half a bag on my kitchen counter. You bet I cried.
  7. Re: 4 ounce min requirement at daycare

    mommal is right, the rule for at least 4oz if formula specific. Breast milk can be given in smaller bottles. Print it out and show them if they are being insistent.

    As a side note, I HATE the...

    Re: Need advice

    A "pump slump" when baby is around 8-9 months old is very normal for pumping moms. You may have to fit in another pumping session or lengthen what you are already doing. I was over-producing up...

    Re: Emergency Formula

    If you send pre-measured bottles there is little to no risk of a spill, so I see no need for emergency back up. Two daycares we have been to have never insisted on having back up on hand. One...

    Re: Pump life

    And different insurances use different durable goods distributors, which are the companies that supply the pumps, like a pharmacy would supply a medication. My insurance had two durable goods...

    Re: Pump life

    I am kind of in the same situation, where I have my old PISA that I used regularly for about 10 months and I wasn't sure how it would last for baby #2. My insurance covered a new pump so I went for...
  12. Re: Going back to work PLUS Sleep training

    Why is your husband pushing sleep training? Waking once a night is less than most babies, and you are the one getting out of bed to nurse. I also agree that 6 months is the absolute earliest I...

    Re: My son nurses 6-10 times at night

    Does he need to nurse, or just need to touch you. Sometimes with DS if he was waking up frequently I could reach out my hand and rub his stomach for a few seconds and he would fall right back to...

    Re: dental surgery while nursing

    What type of extraction? If it is as simple as having your teeth pulled, in a traditional manner, you could request a local anesthetic. My husband had his wisdom teeth removed in that fashion a...

    Re: Not Able to Pump Enough Milk

    Do your flanges fit properly? The mediums size that came with my Medela was good for one breast but too small for the other.
  16. Re: Pumping every 6hours/Baby getting diaper rash

    My son pooped constant little poops for the first few months of his life and his pediatrician said it was totally fine. Yes, it is annoying to have to clean up dirty diapers every hour, but he...
  17. Re: Feeding a newborn with one breast at each feeding

    My son never took two breasts per feeding.

    I tried to force it when he was about 6 weeks or so, because the literature I had told me that by such-and-such an age baby should be taking both...
  18. Re: Bottle brands known to support breast feeding?

    There is no right answer. The suggestion I give to new moms is to NOT decide on a bottle/nipple and buy a bunch of one kind, because baby might decided they don't like them and you are stuck with a...
  19. Re: Breast still full after pumping for 30 mins

    My left breast never emptied as well as my right when pumping. I found that some of the milk ducts on my left required some serious outside pressure to "empty" more completely. Sometimes you can...
  20. Re: Latch Issues and Nipple Confusion (Concerned Father)

    Have you tried nursing her while she is half asleep? If your wife expresses just a little bit of milk onto the tip of her nipple, then jostles sleeping baby girl a little and touches her nipple to...
  21. Re: 4 month - start schedule or continue baby-led?

    In terms of a napping schedule, consider this:

    My son went to two different large daycare centers, and in the process of choosing these day care centers for him and for our soon-to-be-born...
  22. Re: need support & encouragement weaning 1 yr old

    There is no right or wrong answer to that. You can put the EBM in a bottle or a sippy. If she is not loving the sippy cup yet, it might inspire her to drink more from the cup if there is some EBM...
  23. Re: need support & encouragement weaning 1 yr old

    I would focus on pump weaning for now. Since she is okay with cows milk, ask you MIL to offer cows milk with meals and slowly cut down the EBM bottles. Keep nursing while you are together and don't...
  24. Re: Block feeding to correct foremilk/hindmilk imbalance

    Some babies are just gassy and it isn't indicative of a problem that needs to be solved. Most babies will outgrow this in the 4-6 month range. I totally agree with you, don't risk your supply over...
  25. Re: Confused about what I yield from pumping at work...

    Agreed. Most women need to pump at least 3 times when working 8+ hours. If you can't find the time to do it during work, maybe try to pump during commute time?
