    Re: Plugged Ducts - need advice

    I had these really bad with my first born. The ONLY way they would resolve, if she wasn't around to nurse, was to find the white spot (plug) on my nipple and remove it with a sterile needle. Once I...
  2. Re: Has anyone let one of the breasts dry out? Is it ok?

    I, too, tried a chiropractor with my son. He was big at birth (9+ lbs.), so he was kinda cramped inside me and I think he was born with a very stiff neck. Anyway, I don't think the adjustment made a...
  3. Re: Has anyone let one of the breasts dry out? Is it ok?

    My lo never nurses off the left side. There's hardly any milk in there, so I rarely offer it. I pump that side while I pump the other side when at work. But other than that, I don't even bother...

    Re: crusty eye boogers

    I used BM when my son had a plugged duct and lots of yucky eye crust stuff. After two days of using the BM, his duct became unplugged and no more crust! It was AMAZING. This was after 4...

    Re: Nipple Pain, blister, & blocked duct

    It could be a poor latch, oversupply (which also causes clogged ducts) or vasospasms - here's some info. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/nipple-blanching.html

    I had the vasospasms and it...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    Our babies are so alike! Mine naps horribly, and every night I struggle to keep him up past 7. He loves the bath, which is the only way I can keep him up. He gets so crabby and would LOVE to go to...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    We had another bad night last night. The book makes you feel like once you get things settled, it'll be happily ever after, but I have to remind myself that's not realistic. Like you said, there's...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    I've been having trouble too with the site. Not sure what's going on. But just wanted to let you all know that last night he slept until 4:45 a.m. again:clap, so I was VERY relieved! We'll see what...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    Oh my gosh, blush blush! Well, bad news - the last two nights my son has woke up crying in the middle of the night, very randomly. I soothed and it worked, but I was frustrated because for the 4...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    Well, hmmm. Does she settle back down as soon as you go in her room and pat her back or whatever you do? That would be hard because I'd think the next step would just be not to go in there, but that...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    The thing that she discusses in the book is that there will be SOME crying, but it's much different than letting baby cry it out alone. You are right there. Sometimes that's harder, and in the case...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    You know, the book was more about how to get them to fall asleep on their own when you put them to bed initially. We didn't have that problem; our problem was primarily waking during the night. But...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    You're welcome! I did rule out all other causes and only tried when it was really apparent that he just wanted to say "hi" to Mommy 4 times a night :) It's been the greatest thing I've done - both...

    Re: Night feeds at 9 months old....

    My son did this up until about a week and a half ago. I've gone through FOUR sleep books. It was the last book "Good Night, Sleep Tight" (I think that's the name) that worked for me. It wasn't brain...

    Re: 8.5 month old gags on all solids

    He can pick up food and put it in his mouth. I've tried those Gerber puffs thingies and he puts it in his mouth, chews it, and then pushes it back out with his tongue. If it goes too far back, he...

    Re: 8.5 month old gags on all solids

    That's funny because just today I was looking at him thinking "well, guess he won't be swallowing a penny anytime soon!" NOT that I won't be eagle-eye about small parts being around him, but...

    8.5 month old gags on all solids

    I'm so confused. My 8.5 month old whines at dinner like he wants some of our food, but he gags on EVERYthing I put in his mouth. And I mean everything (except the breast, of course). Cereal (rice,...
  19. Re: My LC can't even help!!! What to do? (LONG)

    Are you sure you don't have an overactive letdown or oversupply? Sometimes baby latches shallow when that happens and can lead to sore nipples. Or he/she may clamp down to stop a fast flow.

    Other...
  20. Re: Nipple blanching, clamping pain is killing me! Thrush?

    Because I was in sooooo much pain, I started giving her a bottle at around 2-3 weeks. She never had a problem going back and forth (and it made sending her daycare at 6 weeks a whole lot easier...

    Cough Suppresent??

    I have a cold/cough and we are taking a trip on Wednesday. We're flying, so I'll need to hold the baby for awhile and hopefully have him sleep on the flight. But if I'm coughing the whole time,...
  22. Re: Nipple blanching, clamping pain is killing me! Thrush?

    Do you think you may have an overactive letdown? I had the same thing happen with my first daughter, but didn't realize it was due to overactive letdown/oversupply until my second baby. It is...
