  1. Re: Painful letdown and other questions...

    OH! I'm so thankful for all your posts! It doesn't usually hurt at all while I'm nursing him, I think it hurt once while he was nursing. The pain is just a short lived pain, it doesn't continue on...
  2. Painful letdown and other questions...

    I'm not even sure what letdown feels like, as I never felt anything the first couple of months after my son was born. Then after a couple of months I started feeling a hard aching sort of pain deep...

    My ped recommended I give it to my boy as a way to combat gas. I bought the powdered kind. I put a little on my finger and...

    Baby prefers one side to the other

    Long ago in girl scout camp I was bit by a mosquito smack dab on the nipple of my right breast. I scratched it pretty bad, and the nipple is scarred and misshapen. That breast is also a bit smaller...

    Re: Ready to give up! :(

    Hi Zoe's Mom, don't give up now, you're probably just round the corner from it getting better. I didn't battle a yeast problem (not yet at least!), but the first week I did not have my son latched...

    Re: 6 weeks old & not gaining quickly enough

    I LOVE those stories of small eaters! I KNOW the boy's got to be OK, he puts out more diapers than I can count in a day. One of my LLL group leaders mailed me today to recommend I start block...

    Re: Latching problems

    My boy used to make clicking noises real frequent too, but now that I think about it, he's stopped completely. Maybe you just need to have more patience and the problem will work itself out like...

    Re: kicks and squirms while eating

    Mine kicks and squirms a lot sometimes too, so when he does I swaddle him up real tight and he calms down and eats peacefully. My boy is only 7 weeks old though. I don't know how well the swaddle...

    Re: 6 weeks old & not gaining quickly enough

    He produces more than enough wet diapers in a day, however he only produces stool every 2-3 days. He's hitting all his other growth milestones within the average range. His doctor would just like...

    Re: I'm really irritated

    Tell them, "Well I hope he stops by the time he leaves for college, but if not, then a mother's gotta do what a mother's gotta do!" It's usually best to laugh off rude comments like that.

    6 weeks old & not gaining quickly enough

    My son is one month, two weeks and four days old. He's gaining about four ozs a week rather than the 6 ozs his doc would like to see in a week. He's exclusively breastfed, and feeds on demand. I'm...

    Re: What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    I really appreciate all the help and suggestions! He's been better than he was since he made a poo on Wednesday. He's made several poos since then, so maybe that was the larger part of his problem....

    Re: What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    I wouldn't say I'm hungry because I'm trying to avoid certain foods, but I am hungrier now, and it's real hard to find the time to prepare my meals and eat them as well. I don't like leftovers much,...

    Re: What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    Yes, I've been using the Lansinoh lanolin, it's helped a whole lot. Bought a boppy pillow too. Before I had both of these my nipples had become scabbed over, so at least we're better off than we...

    Re: What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    Cluster feeding could be our problem, my son does act this way, and since he's happy as long as he's @ the breast, this could very well be what's going on. He's going through a growth spurt this...

    Re: What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    About how many times per day does he nurse?
    At least 8 times, sometimes more. He rarely goes longer than two hours during the day, judged by the start time of his last feeding. Sometimes he'll...

    What do/don't I eat for a colicky baby?

    My little man will be three weeks old in two days, and for the past week he's been showing signs of colic. I've read that I can cut out cruciferous veggies, milk, and caffiene to help him and that's...
