  1. 37.5 weeks pregnant- pumping for inverted nipple

    I'll be 38 weeks on Saturday. This is my second baby. I nursed my first until he was 10 months old. Once my flat nipples were used to pumping/nursing, I had no problems...but my left nipple tends to...
  2. Nursing 9 month old & 6 weeks pregnant.

    My supply has dropped and my active 9 month old is sucking down everything I pump at work and is still hungry!! I used to pump 10oz every 4-5 hours while at work(12-13 hour shifts, 3x a week) but now...

    Re: Totally different baby

    He doesn't have any teeth in yet. Do you mean night-waking starts at 4 months because of teeth or just in general? Is he going to sleep like this forever? I'm okay with it if he is, I just want to be...

    Totally different baby

    Eli is 4.5 months old and is exclusively breastfed. He pees constantly throughout the day and usually poos anywhere between three times a day to once every other day. He soaks his diapers at night...

    16 week old with a cold...

    Our 16-week old weighs 17 lbs and usually has a constantly wet diaper. We normally change his diaper at least 10-12 times a day. He has had a runny nose, slight cough and severe stuffiness since...

    Lopsided

    I've been having issues with this since we started nursing. I'm leaning to the right ;) Is this due to Eli's preference or is there possibly a production issue on one side? I often start on the left...
  7. Re: Supplementing EBF baby with hindmilk

    I have never heard of this. Just thinking it through, I wouldn't recommend it. Breast milk is made up of forehilk and hindmilk for a reason. I'm not convinced that trying this would solve your...
  8. Re: Weaning my 5wk old due to armpit pai

    Same thing happened to me...I massaged it and ran hot water over it every time I showered, and it was gone in a couple of days. Now even if I'm full, it doesn't return. Hope you feel better, mama!...
  9. Re: Baby refusing bottles of BM! Help!

    I'm also an RN and we had this same problem. A couple of things helped us:

    Try warming the bottle nipple up first.
    Tuck the bottle under your arm and hold the baby as if you were nursing him or...
  10. Husband having trouble bottle-feeding

    It's kind of ironic to me that I exclusively pumped for the first 3 weeks of my son's life and ONLY fed him with bottles...and now, we're having the hardest time getting him to take one!

    3 nights...

    Re: Lack of support...hitting a wall

    We've had to give our LO formula a couple times (MIL was throwing out our milk) and it definitely didn't make him sleep any longer. Honestly the thing that I think helps him sleep longer is cloth...
  13. Re: Suddenly spitting up after feedings?

    Our LO has reflux so he spits up like 3x after each feeding. I burp him between breasts and after the feeding. We have the head of his crib elevated with a pillow under the mattress, and during the...
  14. Re: Timing of feedings - general questio

    We kinda mix scheduling with on-demand feeding. I never ever deny him when he's hungry, but I also don't stick my boob in his mouth just because I know he's sleepy. I do nurse him for comfort in the...

    Re: 6 week old eating a lot

    8 oz does seem like a lot, even for a growth spurt at this age. Are you basing 7-8 oz on a normal amount for you to pump? If so, you may be engorged from an oversupply that already existed. The pain...
  16. Re: Upper Labial Tie=Shallow Latch=Vasospasms!

    1. We didn't have surgery, but we did have his frenulum snipped at 6 weeks and 2 days of age. They wanted to do it under anesthesia because he was over 6 weeks old, but we pretty much begged the doc...
  17. Re: Can anyone reccommend bottles for BF babies ?

    We have used Breastflow bottles, NUK bottles, and several Playtex bottles. Not a fan of NUK bottles at all, and Playtex Drop-ins are more pain than useful IMO. My favorites are the Playtex Ventair...

    Re: Newbie here needing help!

    There are many days when my LO doesn't take the second breast (He's almost 2 months old) and I don't fret over it anymore. He can go 4 hours off of one breast now. Your supply should match what your...

    Neverending oversupply issues...

    I was told that my oversupply would even out on its own as I began to exclusively nurse my son (as opposed to exclusively pumping). Well, it hasn't! I'm not pumping unless I'm at work (3 nights a...

    Re: Off and on pain

    They never look like lipsticks. My left one occasionally has a line on the right side of my nipple. I nursed him today with no pain...so I guess it is just an occasional bad latch. I guess we just...

    Off and on pain

    I have been able to nurse my son exclusively (was exclusively PUMPING for the first 3 weeks and then pumping and nursing together after that) since we had his tongue-tie corrected on July 11th. The...

    Re: gassy / fussy baby please help

    My baby's gas is also alleviated best while he nurses. I usually hold him with one arm while he sucks and I pump his legs with the other and he toots away! Good luck!
