  1. Re: Breastfeeding difficulties *please h

    Are you only pumping and giving expressed milk in a bottle? If you're directly nursing, how much you pump isn't always a good sign of how much milk the *baby* is actually getting, they're a lot...

    Re: Blackstrap Molasses and Iron

    It might sound a little strange, but you can really add it into anything strong flavored. I've added it into pasta sauce, baked beans, braised meat, or put it on bread with butter, kind of like a...
  3. Re: Need Encouragement and Advice :/

    I know it won't make it better, but it all sounds very, very normal to me. Maybe the other mamas will chime in, but it really seems like babies vary so widely on this, and it is all normal. My...

    Re: Feeling deflated about weight gain

    I don't think so... unless of course he had diarrhea or something like that. You're right you probably can't tell with all the poop in there. Mine holds out for a few days and then has herself a...

    Re: Feeling deflated about weight gain

    Sounds pretty normal to me. My younger is almost four months and is only beginning to try to roll over in earnest. Can't get past her big fluffy diaper butt. :lol

    I know it is hard not to...

    Re: Feeling deflated about weight gain

    :hug Sorry this has been so hard for you. Is it possible your son is just a peanut? We have close friends who worry all the time with their son (never even made it onto the charts). They are both...

    Re: Only ONE breast hurts!

    Yes, sounds like there's something funny about the way he is latched/positioned on that painful side. That swollen/painful nipple thing happened to me once after I pumped. Totally freaked me out,...

    Re: Ideas to get baby to take bottle?

    :hug Just wanted to give you some emotional support, I've totally been there done that. It is stressful. Try not to show it to your LO while you're trying with the bottle. I know a lot of babies...

    Re: Ideas to get baby to take bottle?

    Yes, try a sippy, spoon, or even a straw. Other things I know others to have done... warming the nipple of the bottle up first, feeding in a swing/carrier/stroller, going outside, altering the...

    Re: can't put her down

    Re: Should I be offering snacks?

    I don't recall being at the point where I was planning for snacks at a year old. I think I just let her eat whenever I was eating. Prob depends on how much you're nursing vs. giving food. I think...

    Re: fussy baby means low production?

    Just wanted to say that I totally agree with the advice you got from the other ladies. I've nursed two (my youngest is coming up on 4 months) and both girls were always fussy in the evenings. For...

    Re: Pulling off & latching back on

    Maybe he's trying to make you have another let down? I've read people saying that babies do that to stimulate another let down, along with kneading the breast. Maybe he's just checking to see if...
  17. Re: Funny question about BFing and massages

    I could, but I think the chances of me leaking are still pretty high (I have always leaked a ton of milk). I also love the idea of having 2 hours of massage bliss all at one time... I guess I'm...
