    Re: Nipple shield to Breast

    Hello and welcome!

    Congratulations on your baby. You've overcome a lot in the last 8 weeks, and it sounds like you're doing a great job.

    If you're no longer supplementing and your baby is...

    Here's a study about diet soda and weight gain:

    It's hard to break a habit. I'm currently trying to dial it back on...

    Re: Breastfeeding questions

    If the baby gained a pound in nine days, I'd say you're doing quite well. Good job!

    Re: Advice re: supplementation

    Does the baby wake up at night for feedings? Night feedings might be a way to increase his weight.

    I wonder if the 2 ounces of formula is making him sleepier at night so he's not waking up as much...
  6. Re: LO spits/vomits breastmilk, but not formula!

    Hi,

    Nursing every one to two hours is normal, especially at that age. Formula does take longer to digest, and does stay down better for some babies, but that doesn't mean that there's something...

    Re: MAJOR guilt :(

    It is hard to go back to work. Like others have said, it does get easier, especially as the baby gets older and you see that he/she enjoys the time spent with other kids.

    I think pumping and...

    Re: Nipple Shield Weaning

    You're doing a good job.

    If the shield is easier, there's no need worry about weaning off it, especially if it's a new style contact shield. Your supply shouldn't suffer.

    But if you can get...

    Re: Nipple Shield

    Good for you for continuing to nurse. I used a nipple shield with my DD until she was about four months.

    If you're using a newer style nipple shield (like the medela contact ones) you shouldn't...

    Re: Help! Milk slowing way down :(

    Agree with pp, how do you know he's not getting enough? Is he not satisfied with the amount in his bottles? He may be going through a growth spurt of some sort. If that's the case, maybe you could...

    Re: Can I wean at one year?

    If you're looking for permission to wean at one year, you absolutely can. I can't even imagine the level of exhaustion of breastfeeding and staying home with two babies for a year.

    A couple...

    Re: Is weaning the best option??

    I'm so glad someone brought up the Gordon nightweaning. I really think it's your best option. I'm pretty high about it right now because I recently decided to take the nightweaning step with my...
  13. Re: Sleeping through the night and spit up

    My daugther is 13 months and she's only recently stopped spitting up. I think most people say if the baby's growing well, it's more of a laundry problem than a health issue. It has to do with muscle...
  14. Re: Pumping Supply Once You Go Back To Work

    What signs are leading the DCP to think the baby is still hungry?

    A bottle is drained much quicker than a breast, is it possible she just wants to be held and or suck longer?

    You've only been...

    Re: Not sure what to do....

    Agree with the PPs that you should do what YOU want. You're the mother in this situation, and if your baby is gaining well, there's no reason to introduce cereal if you don't want to.

    Many, many...

    Re: Clindamycin

    I took it when my baby was four months. She did get a little looser. Since I was pumping for daycare anyway, I ended up giving her milk out of the freezer, but still nursing her at night so she was...
  17. Re: Transition to Bottle from BF using nipple shields

    Hi,

    I don't have any advice on bottle nipple closer to nipple shields, but I do have some advice on using nipple shields while out and about, if that's helpful. If you don't have a case, travel...

    Re: no relief, need some tips!!!

    If the baby likes the Bjorn, have you tried a Moby wrap or something similar? That was the baby can nurse while you have your hands free and can move around. Baby can even sleep in there.

    Re: Milk Supply Issues

    Hi! Congrats on the baby, and I'm sorry you're having some difficulties.

    It sounds like you should meet with another Lactation Consultant -- and I have to say, I'd recommend a different one. I...
  20. Re: Cranky baby who loves to BF/daycare woes

    Good decision on switching daycares. Does he stop crying when he's being held? If that's the case maybe you could drop off a sling or a baby bjorn, she could wear the baby, and still do craft time...
  21. Re: DCP feeding 3 month old too much....really long

    I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. It is difficult.

    18 ounces might be a lot-- the guideline is 1 to 1.5 ounces per hour you're away. I also had problems with my DCP when my DD started, but...

    Re: Nipple shield

    I used one for about 4 months. Now that she's off it, I think back to the advantages. It made nursing lying down really easy :)

    You don't HAVE to wean off it. But if you want to, I think just...

    If you're using one of the newer silicone nipple shields, you shouldn't worry about it impacting your supply.

    Did someone tell you that you needed to pump after feedings? I used a nipple shield...

    Are you taking fenugreek? I just went through my first supply crash, and after a week of taking fenugreek my supply is BETTER than before I was sick.

    Re: Nipple shield latch question

    My DD used a nipple shield until she was about 4 months old. She was also loud when she used it, I don't think it's anything to worry about. She did have to nurse a lot longer with it to get the same...
