    Re: doctor trying to put baby on formula

    Saw your question on my post and thought I'd answer you here, too.

    I ended up supplementing. The thing that really had me worried was that DS had nearly dropped off the charts. He was 85th to 90th...

    Re: Confused about doc's recommendations

    No IV fluids. His birth was quick, uncomplicated, and natural. Other mamas have suggested (on a previous thread I posted) getting tested for any medical reasons I may not be producing enough, which I...

    Confused about doc's recommendations

    Ok. I told myself I wasn't going to worry about this anymore. But after today's appt with the LC, I'm genuinely confused.

    DS and I have had an interesting BF experience so far. I've had docs...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    I must admit there's a part of me that is using this as extra motivation ;)

    SNS didn't work well for us at all. It seemed to have a very negative impact on LO's nursing habits. I've never tried...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    Sunday evening. We nursed/slept for almost 14 hours. It was beautiful. I thought things were on the up and up. I should have started a new post, I guess. The fussing seems different now, somehow....

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    Baby wasn't gaining adequately. Not even close, though the wets and stools seemed to tell a different story. I've had to supplement, and tried an SNS to keep things at the breast, but it was doing...

    We're back to nothing working. How can I have tried everything to keep my supply up, from feeding on demand and letting baby suck as long as he wants, to pumping after each feeding for two separate...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    Finally caught a break! :cheer
    I put DH in charge of DD for the night last night (he's usually not home to help) and LO and I got comfortable on the couch. We did nothing but nurse and sleep from...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    Another week of fussing and this mama is :eye and the rest of the household is :duck

    LO now has a cold on top of the rest, so his poor stuffy little nose is adding to our frustration. What kills...
  10. Re: 2 and a half month old refuses bottl

    We're using Nuk with my LO. He's 3 mos old. Out of curiosity, how many times did you offer each one? DS refused it initially (we started offering at 2 months). A few tries later, he sucked at it. It...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    This is all so new! I didn't make it this far with DD, so I have no point of reference or previous experience. I'm definitely stressed about it, though I am trying to deal with it using breathing...

    No chem lab experience since college, but my work helped with a local oil spill clean up last year when my DD was around 3 months old. I was kept as far away from the actual oil as possible (they put...

    Re: 3 month old fussing

    He's still nursing every 2 hours or so. Sometimes less than that. I try to get to him before he gets fussy, but he doesn't seem to give much warning. He'll go from content to miffed inside a minute!...

    DS is 3 months old now. Sorry if this should be in the other forum.

    Re: SNS question

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've dropped the SNS for now. I figured it was doing more harm than good. Now we're focusing on maintaing supply. We tried the Playtex bottle we used with DD (new nipple,...

    Re: Keeping baby awake at the breast

    Had the same issues with my DD. To this day, a foot massage will put her to sleep! The wet washcloth and stripping to a diaper worked best with her. My DS is the opposite, he loves the washcloth, but...

    SNS question

    I was asked to supplement at my son's 2 month appt. We're using an SNS, which I'd used a couple of times before during my son's first weeks. Trouble is (and I noticed this with the earlier uses, too)...

    After talking with our ped and the IBCLC, we're using formula in an SNS after every other daytime feeding to try and boost DS's weight gain.
