    Re: Still not latching...

    Today was a disaster. I can't stop crying. :cry

    I woke up with her, played with her topless until she got hungry, kept offering the breast, took a warm bath with her, etc etc. I tried EVERYTHING...

    I think that's a good idea. Thanks again - I'm a little nervous but I am going to go through with it. The whole family is hopeful. I'll definitely update with how things are going.

    Re: Need some encouragement

    I honestly don't know what your body is going through because I'm not there and I'm not an LC, but I think you should have a long talk with yourself about your goals and what you feel in your heart...

    Yes it is, thank you! So you all know what that means....
    We decided that this coming Monday will be the day we take away the bottles altogether. I'll be wearing the SNS continuously from today...

    Thanks! I feel pretty good about things lately. After I get over this cold and I have more energy I want to really focus on getting her to the breast. I can't do it without really feeling up to it...

    Re: still struggling with breast feeding

    I agree that a bad latch is probably the culprit. If you can't afford an LC, I think you can get wonderful help from an LLL leader, or just show up to a meeting. Plenty of moms there would be happy...

    You BOTH are helping me immensely. More than you know. I don't know if I would be where I am now if it wasn't for all this support. In a way I feel like I can move forward with this now that I know...

    ^^That could be it. Thanks for the links. I don't really think it happens at a specific time of the day, but I do pump an awful lot so it's hard to say when a headache begins and ends. I get them...
  16. Headaches caused by BF hormones (maybe fenugreek)?

    I am absolutely sick of these splitting headaches that I've had for over two weeks now, and I don't know what's causing them.

    Re: Do I stop nursing???

    Eek! Good luck with whatever it is that's causing you pain. I don't really have advice other than to KEEP NURSING! That's the best thing you can do for both of you.

    Re: Still not latching...

    Wow that's quite a story...I am really hoping it doesn't have to come down to 'total bottle deprivation'. The only way that could work for us is if my supply were near full, or full already.

    I've got a few ideas. Forgive me if they are a little bit random and hastily thrown together in this post! I don't have much time but I want to help since no one else has replied yet.

    Re: 3rd Time Mom - What can I do Differently?

    I think the best things you can do for your baby's future are to:

    1) Seek support NOW. Start going to LLL meetings so you can see other moms latch their babies. You can also post here and read...
