    Re: Butter?

    Yes, butter is dairy and therefore could possibly cause trouble to someone truly allergic to cow's milk protein. I don't think it would hurt to wait just a little longer to give butter, but if your...

    Re: Needs time to adjust or not ready?

    At this time it is more about the experience of different textures, the way it feels in the mouth, and learning to swallow solids than it is about getting nutrition from the foods (so don't worry so...

    Re: Relactation...is it even a possibility??

    You have gotten some great advice, and I think you can do it! I also wanted to add that you could talk to this new doc about a medication for you that could help increase your supply. You will...

    Re: Poor Gassy Baby

    First, gas is completely normal and not something you want to stop her from doing. I know exactly what you mean about the impossibly loud ones! Sometimes my DD sounds like a full grown man! :yikes...

    Re: slave to pumping....

    I know how you feel! I had my first DD 13 years ago, and my new one is 6 months! (isn't it the best to have older kids to help?)

    I agree with pp-don't pump unless you have to. Your baby will...

    Re: not eating enough!??!

    He's just getting more vocal and active. It sounds normal. If you are really worried, keep an eye on his weight, but it sounds like he's just getting more active and expressive.

    Re: help! teething && need some support

    Teething hurts and he's biting down to relieve that discomfort (little stinker for smiling at you first!). He probably started feeling that discomfort back around 4 mo. Breastfeeding is his happy...

    Re: Breastfeeding with large breasts.......

    Me too! I do think it takes some learning to get the hang of it. You feel like you're going to crush your little bitty baby with your giant breasts! :lol
    But you won't, I promise! I agree that...

    Re: when does the milk dry up?

    When you decrease the amount of time you breastfeed, your period can return but this does not mean your milk is drying up.
    I agree with pp-it's all a matter of how much milk you tell your body you...
  10. Re: they're suggesting I STOP breastfeeding... I'm ready to cry...

    Telling you to stop BF is very poor advice IMO. If this is an illness, your baby needs your milk EVEN more. If this is an allergy, going to formula is not going to solve the problem and could even...

    Blah-I'm right there with you in the "not getting much done" category. My DD is the same way, although she will occassionally get good and tired and sleep for an hour or so. But then the phone...

    Re: How Long?

    It depends on what you mean by establish, but usually it takes about 6 weeks for your body to really regulate what you make to your baby's needs. Sometimes more, sometimes less depending on if you...

    Re: not enough milk?

    I agree with pp. Also consider your pump. I bought a Medela mini electric. It really didn't work for me at all. I switched to an Ameda Isis hand pump (I have no financial interest in that...

    Re: Green poop!!!! What sould I do??????

    Don't stress! Does your baby act like he doesn't feel good? Is it green AND frothy? Those could be signs of trouble and I encourage you to see a lactation consultant/ talk to your ped.

    Within about 12 hours, usually between 2-6 hours after you eat. Is your baby really unhappy or just passing gas? Gas is perfectly normal (sometimes my DD sounds like an adult when she passes...

    Re: confusion between bottle and breast

    Definitely breastfeed when you are with your baby. Many babies have no problems going back and forth between the two if breastfeeding is well established. Some babies will take less during the day...

    Re: Latching on and off

    How old is your baby? Are there any distractions in the room (i.e. TV, siblings, radio, etc)? I hate the pop-on-pop-off, take some skin with you. My DD is so interested in what is going on around...

    Re: longer b/w feedings?

    There is a wide range of normal. That 6-8 oz. thing is just a loose guideline. It is of much greater concern if your baby is gaining much less than that.
    It sounds like you may have had some...

    Re: overfeeding my 9 week old???

    I agree with Beanie. Sometimes babies spit up for no apparent reason. I have noticed that my DD was more likely to spit up if she didn't get a good burp. Sorry you have to deal with the mess. It...

    Re: awful poop

    How is your baby behaving? Does he act like he doesn't feel good? Also, are you certain he gets NOTHING else at all while you are at work?

    Other than that, it could just be a normal variation....

    Re: how long to pump and dump?!?!

    The half life of Cipro is about 4.5 hours, so it should be pretty much out of your system within 8 hours.
