    Re: I think I've lost the battle!!

    Let's see if I can answer everyone's questions.

    My baby is 3 weeks old tomorrow.
    When I was only nursing she didn't poop for over 48 hours and she only had 2 wet diapers a day. Those increased...

    I have a low supply of milk. My daugher wasn't having enough poopy/wet diapers and wasn't gaining proper weight. I was taking fenugreek and it seemed to boost my supply, but it made me and her both...

    Re: Pumping to increase supply

    I don't have a clue how much milk she gets at a feeding. When I went to the lactation consultant, she was a week old. The LC weighed her naked and then had me nurse. She wouldn't latch onto my left...

    Re: Pumping to increase supply

    I cannot take Reglan or Fenugreek. I took Reglan with my third child and my baby and I both had a terrible reaction to it. We were shaking and anxious and jittery. Baby would NOT sleep at all. It was...

    Okay, baby has NOT gained her birth weight back. She was 8lbs 8.5oz at birth and today she was 8lbs 4oz. I had to stop taking the fenugreek...again...because it causes me to have uterine cramps,...

    Re: Pumping to increase supply

    the fenugreek does make me have diarrhea. I haven't gotten sick with it this time around, but I've only been taking it for 2 days now and the intense GI distress started on the third day last time....

    Re: Baby not getting enough?

    Her poops are green actually. They were yellow for a day or two, but went back to green. So, how do I know she is hungry and should nurse her or that she is just fussy and should do something else?...

    Re: Pumping to increase supply

    Yes, the LC is an IBCLC.

    The LC said that my daughter's mouth was tiny and because of the montgomery tubercles surrounding my nipple they make it like one HUGE nipple to latch onto. So, she said...

    Pumping to increase supply

    I am almost positive I have a low milk supply. My daughter will latch and sometimes I won't have letdown for over 5 minutes of sucking. At times she will get frustrated and cry because she isn't...

    Stopped taking the fenugreek and I think my supply went low. Baby was satisfied after nursing and would go at least 2 1/2 hours between nursing...sometimes longer when I was taking it. Now, she wants...

    Re: Baby not getting enough?

    Yes, I need to stop comparing her to my other two. ;) Because I had issues with the third, that experience has made me paranoid about supply issues. I'm a BIG worrier. I'm sure you can tell that with...

    Okay, baby is pooping and peeing. Today she's had 2 pee diapers (pretty much clear and lots of it) and 4 poopy ones. So we are progressing to where she needs to be. Her poops are bright green now and...
