    Re: Breastfeeding with thrush!

    Previous posts are spot on- get in touch with your doctor or LC and get some medication for yourself too. When we had thrush, we diligently followed the medication/vinegar rinse/air dry routine...

    Re: ANOTHER nursing strike!?!?

    My LO just got her first tooth too (she's almost 8 months). And she's been really distracted while nursing (our best feeds are at night or when she's really sleepy). I guess it's just normal now...

    Re: Pumping while flying

    Well, I just returned about a week ago from this trip and thought I'd post to let you know how it went! I pumped the whole time I was away (and dumped, even though it broke my heart!). I left...

    Re: whats the longest your lo went without pooing

    I was just out of town and my LO was back here with my Mom. My mom called about 5 days into the trip and was panicked because LO hadn't pooped yet (up until then she was still pooping practically...

    Re: Daughter distracted while breasfeeding

    My dd (5 months old) is the same way. I haven't yet found a knack for getting her to feed without distraction (and it gets uncomfortable having her pull on and off my nipple!!). I found she's done...

    Re: Having to BF whilst walking around!

    My LO is also seeming very disinterested in nursing right now. I just attributed it to her being distracted (she is so interested in everything going on around her, especially her two big...

    Re: bottles

    Sorry- one more thought- I use the Playtex Drop In's with the latex nipples- we've been doing really well with them. A dear friend uses the Dr Brown's system for a gassy LO and absolutely loves them!

    Re: bottles

    I tried Second Nature but my LO didn't care for them. The tip of the nipple is very flat with a sort of lip/ledge thing... I'd imagine it would be kind of uncomfortable to suck on. The concept of...

    Re: Sore nipples with 4 week old

    Sounds like it could be thrush. I know from my own experience that my thrush started at around 3-4 weeks (and I've read that that is a common time for it to begin). I also vividly remember having...

    Re: Finally able to bf

    In the early days, my LO had a hard time latching on my left side. It subsided over time (I guess that no two nipples are the same??). That breast may flow faster than she can handle at this point....

    Re: Trying nursing for the 1st time

    5 months old- ready for solids?

    This is my third child, and with my last two I waited until they were 6 months to introduce solids. However, this baby seems really interested in food at this point. She is 5 months old today- does...

    I agree whole-heartedly with pp. Sometimes a pep talk is just what you need!! But, in the end, the most important thing is that you do what works best for you and your baby. I know from my own...

    Mine still does that at 4 1/2 months. There are times where I'm waiting for her to rip my nipple off- she pulls back and shakes her head. OUCH!! :yikes But I have definitely found that it...

    Re: Breast Pads - what brand?

    I use the Gerber ultra-thin disposable nursing pads. I also tried the Lansinoh thin pads. It seems to me that they all show through my shirts, though!

    Keep trying- sometimes it seems like they keep refusing the bottle but your LO might eventually give in. My 4 mo refused the bottle, too, but I would just try maybe once a day and not be too...
