    Re: Nursing only one side

    Hi Nicole'sMommy

    I do know that some babies are quite satisfied feeding from one side only. My daughter fed from both.

    I guess it really depends on how much you're able to supply, that your...
  3. Re: Should I let my baby cry to get him on a Schedule?

    Hi

    Yes, I think carpentergirl is spot on.

    6 weeks is def time for a growth spurt, so you will find that your little one is demanding more feedings during this time, but it is temporary - until...

    Re: Nursing Strike in 10 month old?

    Hi

    I found teething would sometimes make my daughter not want to nurse.

    I would imagine having an ear infection would make your daughter feel like that as well, does she have something for the...

    Re: Refusing to nurse after 3 1/2 months

    I agree.

    The other thing is, and this might sound silly, is could you have a blocked milk duct which is why she's getting upset not getting any milk (although I would think it's unlikely that you...

    Re: Hardcore Hair Loss!

    I didn't lose as much...

    Re: Confused at 7 weeks

    I think also that your little one may be going through a 'growth spurt' which might last a few days or longer, depending on your baby. I could be wrong, but I did experience my dd going through a...

    It seems that we're not in agreeance with much today!

    I would get him to sleep in his crib during the night and during day time naps.

    Re: Is He Feeding Long Enough?

  23. Re: getting frustrated with on-off-on-off-on. . .

    Hi

    Sounds like it could be from a fast flow of breastmilk, you can try lying back a little when feeding to slow the flow down.

    Another possibility is that your son could have infant reflux,...

    Re: 10 mo won't touch a bit of food
