  1. Re: Baby starts to cry at breast every feed

    So smart to ditch the schedule!!! Flexibility is the key to enjoying your baby and knowing her needs will be met. Trust your maternal instincts and your baby's cues- you know better than a clock...

    Re: Suplementing

    Is the scale a digital scale accurate to the 1/10th of an oz?

    Re: Save pumped bloody milk?

    Good decision! If you feel creepy about it, just throw the milk in the back of the freezer. You might never need it, but it will be there in a pinch.

    Re: how much solid food for 7 month old

    That suggests that your baby has been nursing just 4x per day since 6 months, correct? If so, that's very little nursing for such a young baby. Some kids clearly do just fine on a...

    Re: Only 3oz gain in one month

    Sorry to make you do this, but when we're those weights done?

    So far, we have:

    Birth: 9 lbs, 11oz
    Lowest weight (I'm guessing around 2-3 days?): 8 lbs 5 oz
    2 weeks: 8 lbs, 12 oz
    1 month: 10...

    Re: Suplementing

    So :ita with Sassypants and MaddieB! I spent around $800 on getting breastfeeding going with my first- the LC didn't charge for her services but she did charge me to rent a hospital grade pump and...

    Re: Breast size shrinking

    :ita No worries. The deflation is normal and may be completely unrelated to supply. A lot of breast volume is fat, and weight loss often means that you go down a few cup sizes.

    Re: Save pumped bloody milk?

    Totally safe to use. You can feed it to your child as is, or you can let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. The blood will settle to the bottom of the bottle, allowing you to pour off the clean...
  9. Re: Returning to work when baby 10 months old

    This is probably a question you'd want to discuss with the nursery. They may actually require you to send some sort of drink for your baby, and usually they will ask for either milk or formula. ...

    Re: Only 3oz gain in one month

    before we go down the rabbit hole of what to do about slow gain, was there any chance that the baby was mismeasured? Did the doctor use the same scale as last time, and is it a digital scale? We're...

    Re: Suplementing

    Supplementing with expressed milk is a useful thing to do when you have a baby who is unable to nurse well enough to support adequate growth.

    If you are going to supplement with expressed milk,...
  12. Re: Almost to my year goal, but not sure I can make it

    This is one of those questions that is impossible to answer. The variables are too many and too individual for there to be a universal right answer. All we can do is to give you a list of pluses...

    Re: Drying up?

    You might also want to try some visualization and relaxation techniques when you are pumping at the office. Do some deep breathing, take a used onesie that belongs to your child and smell it while...

  16. Re: First PP Period at 10 months-Drastically Lowering Supply

    :ita What MaddieB said. Embrace your baby's frustration if you can- it should lead him to nurse more often and more assertively and thereby boost your supply right back up. A lot of moms seem to...

    Re: Mastitis, healing fissures

    The further you go, the better. Thrush can be really stubborn. I personally think the way to go about this is to see if the LC confirms the thrush suspicion, and then see the doc and get meds for...

    Re: Drying up?

    You're absolutely right that people don't just spontaneously dry up for no reason. So what is happening, most likely, is that being at the office and needing to rely on the pump is having a negative...

    Re: Mastitis, healing fissures

    Okay, that does sound like mastitis! The reason I asked is that sometimes health care professionals step in with antibiotics for something that turns out not to be masttis- for example, a mom with...
  20. Re: Loosing my supply on the 8th day? What am I doing wrong?

    :ita Terrific advice from MaddieB.

    Can you tell us more about the medical issue which is keeping you from nursing? Maybe we can help!
  21. Re: Exceptionally short nursing (3-5 mins), drop in supply

    For the tendinitis, icing when possible and anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen should help.

    Based on your description, I'm thinking that your troubles are a mix of three issues which are very hard to distinguish from each other.

    First, I think there is an excellent chance that you have...

    That doesn't sound like a fissure; again, cracked nipples generally aren't subtle!

    Some more questions for you:
    - When do you have pain- at the beginning of the feeding, throughout the feeding,...

    Re: Low supply?

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!

    The best way to measure milk intake and milk supply is by watching the baby's weight gain and diaper output. As long as those two...
