    Re: overactive letdown and frequency

    I have the same experience.
    Poor DS sometimes gets a faceful of milk-fountain - I just make sure I have a small towel-flannel handy to wipe him down! He finds it amusing! :rolleyes:

    Re: Cold Milk?

    I get the DCP to run the bottle from the fridge under a warm tap and gently swirl the bottle to get the fat that has separated and stuck to the sides of the bottle to reintegrate back into liquid. If...

    Re: Avent Isis IQ

    I only ever get 4-5 oz per session as well manual or electric.

    However, I do find the suction tooo strong sometimes, so it might be that the pump isnt working correctly.

    I was worried about the same - my DS is 3.5 months now, and for the last three or four days he seems permanently hungry and not getting enough. However, this weekend I havent pumped at all, and have...

    Re: Avent Isis IQ

    I have a manual and the IQ as well.

    I prefer the IQ.

    However.... I find that I need to use it on manual for about 10-12 pumps before the milk starts flowing, and only then do I switch it to...

    after an hour he is just sucking for comfort, so perhaps you want to consider a pacifier/dummy? this saved my nipples from further trauma, and DS abandoned the pacifier once he found his fists (aged...

    Re: Hurting and uncomfortable

    it can be disheartening can't it?:(

    Re: squirming at the breast

    sam - it could be that he enjoys the let down and when that calms down he has to work a bit harder at getting the hind milk out - try leaning forward a bit when you nurse to help gravity and make...

    Re: What I've Learned....

    excellent post!

    A couple of things I have learnt:

    Re: meltdown while eating

    did you get antibiotics during your labour? did your son?

    if yes, and you had thrush during pregnancy, you might easily have thrush and your baby as well.

    go back and see a doctor about this...

    Re: Daddy involvement - Feeling resentful?

    to be honest, you can reassure your DH that we have the opposite problem!

    our 13week DS associates me with food so much that when I pick him up he cries in "want" every single time. Even if we...
