  1. Re: So gassy..... is it something I'm eating?

    DS has a dairy allergy ... I had to be off dairy for 6+ WEEKS before seeing any real effects. But it was worth it! Perhaps you can cut out the dairy and eggs for a while longer to see if there's...

    Re: Weaning off the bottle

    I just wanted to say that I second what Mrs. Mandolini said ... nursing my 34-weeker took waaaaaaay longer than when DH gave him a bottle. He fell asleep often and required stripping down to just...
  4. Re: Bottle to Breast Transition - please help

    Don't give up! Keep trying! I'm sure someone here has good advise that will help!

    The only thing I can think of is to offer her the breast first and often, perhaps even before she's hungry.

    Re: Help! Painful breasts, reduced supply

    I am so sorry to hear your troubles ... sending you lots of hugs right now.

    I don't really have any advise. I've never had a yeast infection in the breasts, but have had my fair share of...

    Re: what's better?

    Our doctor has been saying the same thing. And I couldn't disagree more!!! Especially after the last LLL meeting I attended!!!

    It's been quite a few months since I'd attended a meeting ... silly...

    DS had LOTS of ear infections and LOTS of bad reactions to the medicines required for it. When he was diagnosed with his first, we questioned the doctor's use of antibiotics but they explained that...

    Re: teething and night-wakings

    When DS began teething, he did the same thing you're describing. That was also the time that we began co-sleeping. It helped both of us. I personally can't stand to hear him cry, especially when I...

    Re: 10 month old nursing every 2-2.5 hrs

    DS does the same thing, especially since he started teething! He's now got 6 teeth in and 2 more on top breaking through.

    Oops ... he just woke up. Gotta go feed the boob man.:eek:
  10. Re: Baby upset with nursing . . . need support/help

    You're not alone!!! This happened to me too when DS first when to daycare.

    Relax.

    She will take the breast ... (at least IMHO). :o

    Give her time to adjust to the changes in her life too....

    Re: I'm worried...

    It will get better. I promise! :)

    Relax.

    DS seemed to do better at daycare with the bottle than at home. Sometimes, I think that he knew DH was "worried" about him taking the bottle, and...
  12. Re: Omg, why would my milk production dwindle like this? (1 month)

    My first piece of advise - STOP PUMPING AND DO NOT USE FORMULA (formula is only messing with the economics of supply and demand)!!! Get your child to your breast as often as possible. I know you...

    Re: introduce solids 4 months?not enough milk.

    IMO the most important aspect of introducing foods is when baby is ready. At our 4 month appointment (our ped states they can start solids i.e. rice cereal, bananas between 4 and 6 months) our ped...

    Sorry, I don't know anyone in East Germany.

    If you want to continue, I say do it. Hang in there ... it will get better. Because one way or another, you'll figure things out (i.e. continuing to...

    Re: Poly-Vi-Sol ?

    DS was put on poly-vi-sol with iron when he came home from the NICU, but it was my understanding that it was because he was a preemie, not because I was BF. He had jaundice while in the NICU that...

    Re: Diarea

    Hello! I'm sorry to hear your daughter isn't feeling well.

    I would call her doctor.

    Re: does cows milk cause gasiness ?

    DS is too young for cows milk (and I'm hoping he is outgrowing his dairy allergy) but I know with all my nieces and nephews that milk is very very filling, hence lower appetite.

    Ah, yes, the joyful growth spurt. As I remember, every growth spurt DS had was pretty similar to what you are saying.

    My only advise is to trust your body. It will provide what your daughter...
