  1. Re: Newborn falling asleep while on breastn stays on breast

    Hi insimom. It is rarely a good idea to pump and bottle feed rather than breastfeed. It is something that can be done if baby cannot nurse for some reason, of course. But more typically, assuming...
  2. Re: 6.5 month old falling off growth curve :(

    YOU have NOT been starving your child. I assure you! I suggest get the book My Child Won't Eat and read the section on charting first. I think it will make you feel better. You will want to read the...

    Re: Baby's poop small

    It certainly sounds like faster than average gain. But many babies gain faster than average, just as many gain slower than average. To get a better idea of what is going on currently, What was the...

    Re: Supplementation

    Hi, is baby still hospitalized or are you home now? Can you post a complete weight history? How many ounces a day is baby getting in the bottle per day, and how much do you pump per day? Are baby's...
  5. Re: First time mom- confused and feeling defeated

    Hi and welcome. The first thing I would suggest is to take a deep breath! No matter what is going on, there is a solution. Even if supplementing is needed, that does not mean you will not be able to...

    Re: Baby's poop small

    I don't think we have current weight numbers(?) But as mommal says, rapid gain alone is not an indication of OP, necessarily.
    Fast letdown/OP are only issues is they are causing an issue. Fast...

    Here is something for dad: http://www.llli.org/docs/0000000000000001WAB/WAB_Tear_sheet_Toolkit/10_what_about_partners.pdf

  8. Re: 5 week old baby - lower jaw has started slipping

    I got it. It is hard to move out of the comfort zone- I nursed my oldest child in the football hold for at least 4-5 months and took a nursing pillow to the mall. etc. because I was convinced I...

    Re: Flying without baby

    I agree about the spectra. Take the pump that you know works, PLUS maybe have a back up plan like hand expression or a cheap manual pump just in case.

    My only thought about the flask is that it...
  10. Re: 5 week old baby - lower jaw has started slipping

    It sounds like baby is gaining rapidly and that might suggest overproduction. So is there any evidence of a fast letdown? The fast letdown could cause baby to almost be pushed off the nipple if that...
  11. Re: Excruciating refilling pain in left breast!

    Hmmm. Refilling pain. I have heard of (and experienced) letdown pain, (this can occur between feedings) and it can really hurt. Is this what they are talking about? It hurts worse (in my personal...

    Re: Cracked, bleeding, & in pain!

    Yes it is safe to give your baby that milk. But you want to be very sure your pump is not causing further injury, or that defeats the entire reason for pumping. Look at flange size, suction setting,...

    Re: Does nursing position matter?

    :ita Moms can get driven crazy with the idea that the breast must be "emptied." And it is nonsense. I had some overproduction- I probably never had an "empty" breast for the first several months...

    Re: Does nursing position matter?

    Nursing position matters if it matters, and I think it is common for it to "matter" more in the early weeks. It matters for moms comfort, babies preference, baby's ability to latch normally, etc....

    Re: 4.5 months old not gaining weight

    Did baby lose weight ever, or only dropped percentiles while baby was still gaining? Have all weight checks been on the same infant digital scale? Done carefully, with same type of units, baby in a...

    Re: Frequent poops at 4 months

    Baby has been gaining rapidly, right? Average or above? Above average would indicate op. That is probably the most reliable indicator. It does not mean op is a problem, because op can be there...
  17. Re: Transition from Breastfeeding to Solids After the First

    Mommal has given you excellent feedback. My suggestion is, do not forget that you and your baby are biological partners. During the process of a baby weaning, (to solids or anything else) your body...

    Re: Frequent poops at 4 months

    Do you produce a lot of milk? That is what this sounds like. Yes your baby may be getting more milk than many other babies his age. This is not a problem when it is breastmilk from the tap, and as...
  19. Re: Newborn not transferring enough milk

    Did you mean definitely is being overfed or is not overfed? I just want to clarify. If baby is definitely being overfed, then it makes sense to reduce supplements, right?

    Ok. So the thing to...
  20. Re: Very distractible 4.5mo, decreasing supply?

    I think at this point you can keep doing what you are doing and do not need to worry so much. Your baby sounds normal and healthy. The behavior at the breast is common for this age. Baby may really...
  21. Re: Starting and stopping solids.. twice :(

    :ita There is no way that stopping solids entirely or switching to baby led solids will cause harm to your baby's digestion. It will either help, or be harmless. I agree with mommal the only possible...
  22. Re: Newborn not transferring enough milk

    Ok, so while I do think there may be a milk transfer issue, the fact is a baby not wanting to be put down and sleeping better when held by mom or another trusted adult is one of the facts of early...
  23. Re: Newborn not transferring enough milk

    sorry I posted before I saw your reply to mommal.
    Fall asleep where? If you keep holding baby after nursing, or someone else takes baby, and holds her snuggled on the chest or in a sling etc, will...
  24. Re: Newborn not transferring enough milk

    I agree with mommal that the transfer amount seems normal and that this can be built on.

    What is possibly not normal is that it takes so long every time for baby to transfer that much. While of...
  25. Re: 7 Days and having so much pain. ..please help!

    Hi csuncannon, welcome and congratulations on your dear baby. I also had terrible pain and injury in the early weeks with my oldest child. It was terribly hard. We went on to have a wonderful...
