    Re: Lack of poo

    Well, that depends! My ds only poops once or twice a week, even with solids. When she does go, if the poo looks too hard, then I would consider her to be constipated. If she goes and it seems wet...

    Re: Baby doesn't poop

    If your baby has 8+ wet diapers a day and is growing okay, then I think you're fine, personally. My baby was a once a week pooper from day 1! Even with a bottle of formula a day at the beginning. It...
  5. Re: Solids- slowed weight gain (less nursing)

    My son is 6 months old and he's been on cereal since 5 months and some jar food since 5.5 months. Looking at your post, I would recommend maybe just nursing in the morning and not doing any cereal...
  6. Re: 6M old LOVES solids, I'm afraid he'll stop nursing!

    Thanks ladies for your replies! I'm not as worried now as I was a few days ago. He seems to be loving nursing still and doing plenty of it in the morning all day, and at bedtime. And so far my milk...

    Re: Bowel Movement Question...

    YAY! I'm glad he went! I heard somewhere that BF babies can go up to 13-14 days without a BM and still be perfectly fine. I've had BM issues with my baby since day 1...the kid just doesn't go that...

    Thawed milk with particles?

    Twice now I've thawed out my milk to find that it has little while particles floating in it! It looks really weird and kinda gross. There doesn't seem to be any change in flavor and ds will drink it,...

    I think my LO is confusing my boobs!

    My LO will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. He's always taken forever to nurse...like at least an hour, often more. Last night he nursed non stop and it seemed like my breasts were completely empty (although...

    Re: not "opening" her mouth

    Aw, yes, my little guy does the exact same thing. I just keep using my finger to break his suction, then I kind of pull down on his chin and make sure his lips are out, like you do. It still kind of...
  13. How can I get him to stretch his tongue out?

    My 6 week old LO has a bad habit of not putting his tongue far enough out to cushion my nipple, so nursing is still often painful for me. But he doesn't always do this, because sometimes it doesn't...

    Re: Are IBCLC's expensive?

    Call your WIC office, they should have LCs there! I know that you are getting formula from them, but they are really probreastfeeding and want to help. They should help you for free!

    Re: Supply - Update

    Can you get a SNS from your LC or OB? You can put formula on it, and he will get that while he nurses at the breast and it will satisfy him as well as stimulate your supply.

    Re: Question about building milk supply?

    Kate, that does make sense, but I guess my real question is...how long does it take my body to catch up and produce the amount my LO wants to drink? Are we talking a matter of minutes, hours or days?...

    I went to the doctor today, and ds has gained 10 ounces in the last 2 weeks. However, he was supposed to gain 13 ounces in order to get back up to his birth weight. So I guess the jury is still out...
