  1. Re: Baby won't nurse, just opens mouth wide and screams

    @inkedstar: Yes, it seems to happen in late afternoon-evening. Yesterday, after about 3 hrs (during which she slept for about 45 min), I was able to nurse her when she was waking up. Her output is...
  2. Re: Baby won't nurse, just opens mouth wide and screams

    Well, she napped well today, and I thought it was past, but now I have been trying to feed her for 2 hours and all she does is cry. I don't think it is reflux, and she doesn't have a fever...she was...
  3. Baby won't nurse, just opens mouth wide and screams

    Please help if you can. My DD is 3 months, has been an absolute angel the past month after some up and downs. A few days ago she stopped her normal napping (at least one long nap about 3 hrs. and the...

    Re: Emptying the breast

    The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (8th edition) is FANTASTIC! IF you can't buy it, check if your local library has it, and if they don't, request that they get it in. :)

    Re: Emptying the breast

    Actually, your breasts are never totally empty. But your breast will become a lot softer after a good feed. If the breast is consistently not becoming empty you run the risk of plugged ducts which...

    Re: Nursing one side at a time

    Very helpful, thanks! She is quite a content baby and different than my other two in that she will not nurse unless she is good and ready. But at 2 months she is about 14lb so I can be assured that...

    Re: Nursing one side at a time

    Thanks for your replies. (esthervegan, my name is esther too. :) )
    I don't really worry if she is getting enough right now, I guess I am more concerned with what will happen over time. But I guess...

    Nursing one side at a time

    Hi all,
    My DD (2mo) has mostly nursed only one side at a time since birth. I was told that this is fine, but now that she is starting to go longer b/w feeds I wonder if it will affect my milk...

    Re: when to block feed?

    :ita here too. It sounds just like what I was experiencing a few weeks back when my DD was 1 month! She's also my 3rd. :) I also wanted to add that if your LO is coughing and choking, she might be...
  11. Re: Nursing 7 week old every 2.5 to 3 hours seems impossible

    proverbs.wife: Yes, it will get easier and shorter! You will be SO glad you stuck with it! :) That is why it is so sad when moms quit early...they don't realize how much easier it gets. I wish...
  12. Re: Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    Good news: the last couple of night went a lot better. We got her settled by about 11:30, and she even slept some before that 11:00 feed. I really think it had to do with forceful letdown, and as she...
  13. Re: Possible plugged duct? Also-Baby sleepy from shots?

    There is already some great advice here, but I just want to say that you will know that it is mastitis if you become feverish and very weak...like we're talking "can't do anything" weak. If you start...
  14. Re: Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    Thanks for the encouragement! It's great to know that this is most likely just another stage that will pass.
    I do indeed have forceful letdown. She often chokes/coughs and swallows air. I guess it...
  15. Re: Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    I know, right? There's a reason babies get sleepy when they have a full tummy! :)
    I have LO in a bassinet beside my bed, and during the night I nurse her in my bed with very dim light, nice and...
  16. Re: what are the rules on having a drink and nursing?

    :ita I agree with the above. Don't pump and dump! Waste of milk and energy. :)
  17. Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    My 7 week old is my 3rd baby, and with my other two I would often nurse them to sleep especially at night. I know some people say not to, but when you NEED sleep in a big way, it is a blessing to be...
  18. Re: need help.. newborn-9 days old.. i'm feeling helpless

    I would say that if you have oversupply issues, the pump can be good for reducing a bit of your engorgement and taking a little out before a feed so that the flow isn't too fast for baby. I have had...

    Re: How to know when a breast is "empty"

    My lactation consultant says that "empty" is a misnomer. Your breast is never really completely empty. In my experience, you can usually tell when your breast softens especially in these early days....

  21. Re: Having so many issues, need a ton of help VERY LONG

    I agree, it sounds like oversupply. She is probably having a hard time keeping up with the fast flow. If you can feel your letdown, take her off when it starts and let the milk flow out into...
  22. Re: 5 week old refuses right side/gets angry when try to lat

    Thanks everyone! I had someone come and help. It was a combination of problems. My daughter was trying to keep up with my super fast letdown, and her latch was not very good due to her position. My...
  23. 5 week old refuses right side/gets angry when try to latch

    My DD seems to have problems with her latch (keeps clicking and slipping off). I try to re-latch but she becomes very upset and angry. But the slipping off makes her upset too. She is showing a...
