  1. Re: Reestablishing breastfeeding: how long to try?

    Great news! So to your question, it appears baby is taking much less supplement now. So I think you can definitely reduce pumping frequency. Basically a mom with normal milk production (no need to...
  2. Re: 7 week old and suddenly not latching

    we were able to give all meds in a syringe with a wide opening but if a bottle works best for you why not. We put the prevacid suspension in distilled water I think? The prevacid was sweet....
  3. Re: 20 Week Old Dropping Weight Percentiles, what to do?

    As far as I know, the only possible reason to give a baby solids prior to 6 months is 1) kid is ready (some are, but a baby who is not sitting up yet probably is not) or 2) baby is not able to get...
  4. Re: 7 week old and suddenly not latching

    Ok thanks for answering my questions.
    First lets look at weight gain. In the 2 weeks between 2 and 4 week checks, baby gained 14 ounces. So that indicates normal gain for this period of about an...
  5. Re: 7 week old and suddenly not latching

    Hi. So this may be somewhat unusual but not unheard of. Some questions.

    When exactly did the issues start?
    When was baby diagnosed with reflux and placed on meds
    What criteria or tests were...

    have you talked to local lll? What about the book The Womanly Art of breastfeeding??

    You are unfortunately laboring under some incorrect assumptions. These are common even where there is good...

    Re: Reflux- how did you manage it?

    'reflux' (painful burps, pain laying down, lots of spit up) with two kids, medicated one and not the other. What helped most in both cases was:
    held baby more or less upright more or less most of...
  9. Re: What if freezer lost electricity for a while

    Mommal is right, the official line is milk that has defrosted milk should be used asap and should not be refrozen. However, several years ago a study was done where they looked specifically at what...

    Re: In need of advice...

    Human breastmilk is the biologically normal food for the human infant, including the infant digestive system. Frequent pooping, as is common with breastfed babies is thus biologically normal. It is...

    Re: sort of a BF question

    Have you tried adjusting her and your positions? While this behavior does not sound particularly alarming, I think whenever nursing hurts consistently it is a problem.

    Re: In need of advice...

    A baby this age nursing very often is normal. In fact many babies seem to "wake up" somewhere around 1-3 weeks of age and want to nurse way more than they did before. If a baby is nursing very often...
  13. Re: 8 week old only taking 1-1.5 ounces

    Hi. Is baby gaining normally?

    I do not think you are doing anything wrong. There are some simple things to try to help baby get more each time baby nurses, namely, breast compressions and...

    Re: worst cramp

    I agree. 3 week long period plus extreme pain definitely call your doctor. Is it possible you are pregnant?

    Anyway, Just don't let them blame breastfeeding as that would not cause a long period...
  15. Re: Should I be concerned? *tmi poop pic*

    great point. I see lots of concern over 'mucousy' poops even when they are not green. Maybe I am not understanding what is meant by mucousy, but to me breastfed infant poop is always very liquid, and...
  16. Re: Should I be concerned? *tmi poop pic*

    These all look normal to me, but I am not a doctor or in any way qualified to examine poop. I am just going by the many diapers I have seen of my own kids and others over the years. Baby is generally...
  17. Re: Help: 3year old sleeping on breast

    You and your child are 100 percent normal and you have not done anything wrong. He WILL eventually learn to sleep in his own bed and without nursing. You can move that process along faster if you...
  18. Sticky: Re: Articles about Increasing Milk Production

    thanks for the update! I am happy that book helped you get some answers, I suggest it all the time. Yes there is no doubt tongue tie can cause not only painful latch but also poor milk transfer...
  19. Re: Very uncertain about breastfeeding success (pretty long)

    Hi glassonion. Here are a few questions I ask if I am trying to figure out if there is potentially a breastfeeding problem.

    Is baby gaining weight normally?
    Is nursing comfortable for mom?
    Is...

  21. Re: Do I still have hope? (wish I had known this forum earli

    ok. Yes I am sorry but I really do think there is only so much mom can do trying to figure out nursing on her own when the problem is latch pain this bad by this age, so I hope you can find some...
  22. Re: Do I still have hope? (wish I had known this forum earli

    Thank you for the info. I am still unclear if baby is nursing now or entirely bottle fed, but I gather either way the primary issue is latch pain. So here is what I suggest for that.

    Is there ANY...

    Re: No letdown

    Here is a thought- maybe it is not so much the lack of letdown as baby wants to do something else at that moment? I recall a period of time my oldest did not want to nurse to sleep in the evening -it...

    Re: No letdown

    It is normal for period to cause a temporary (not severe) reduction in milk production. Since let down in hormonally triggered, I do not see why the hormonal changes in your body at this time might...
