    Thyroid and recovering supply

    So I recently have been struggling to keep up my supply, and I just discovered why. I really messed up on my thyroid medication. I'd rather not go into detail about how it happened, but I went about...
  2. Re: Lopsided, no weight gain, and constipation

    Thank you for the advice re solids, vivsmaman

    Q: What is a dream feed? DD nurses for two of her naps, and I am assuming that is what that is. She falls asleep on the breast at night as well, and...
  3. Re: Lopsided, no weight gain, and constipation

    OH! And the biting! She keeps biting me on both sides when she is not seriously eating anymore. Thank God she has no teeth yet.
  4. Re: Super slow let downs, baby getting mad and long pump ses

    I have the same issue on the left side. Baby doesn't like it, and it takes 3 times longer to empty when pumping.
  5. Re: Lopsided, no weight gain, and constipation

    Clarification: The only juice I am giving her is prune juice, and it is because of the constipation, but she won't take it anyway, so I am just giving her prune baby food for that issue.

  6. Lopsided, no weight gain, and constipation

    My baby is 6mo, nursing 6-7 times per day, sleeping 9 hrs at night, and not gaining weight at all. She weighed 12lb 2oz at her 4mo checkup and 12lb 2oz at her 6mo checkup (born 7lb 5oz, left hospital...
  7. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    UPDATE: I went to LLL meeting this morning, and one of the leaders watched us nurse. The baby is not changing to deep sucking, and is probably not transferring much milk. So we are going to start...
  8. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    They checked my thyroid immediately after delivery, but I have an appointment to have it rechecked on Monday. Thanks!
  9. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    Thank you guys for your advice. I am really frustrated, but i ordered an SNS to get her through this. I have been nursing the baby pretty much all day, but I am still so concerned that she might not...
  10. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    The only thing I am on besides the meds to boost my supply is Synthroid for hypothyroid and a prenatal vitamin.

    I am actually stoked right now because the baby just stayed awake for 10 minutes on...
  11. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    The main reason I am not nursing more frequently is because each feeding takes about 60-90 minutes. For example, this morning, baby woke me at 5:15 to feed. I started by nursing her. She sucked well...

    What is CCK?
  14. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    Sorry the post is so long. I am really afraid I might be starving my baby because I am able to pump so much after feedings. And she was born 7lb 5oz, and is now only 8lb 9oz after 7 weeks.
  15. Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental EBM

    My baby is 7 weeks today. We left the hospital BFing on demand and thought everything was going fine. She nursed about 90% of the time she was awake, and fell asleep on the breast. She was nursing...
