  1. 6 months, starting solids, looking for a little advice

    First of all -- yay, we made it to 6 months! I am sooooooooo proud of this since it took a lot of determination and work. But we're here and I've just extended my next target to 9 months. In the...
  2. Re: Okay, what does "not supposed to hurt" ACTUALLY mean?

    It really (crying) hurt for a while, but it did eventually go away for me. That's not to say I still don't have issues every now and again (blebs, clogged ducts) but it's sooooooooo much better than...
  3. Re: How are reflux and slow weight gain related?

    Well, I hope someone else can give you advice as well, because now I'm not sure I would advise trying meds. My daughter is a snacker now, but before she just wouldn't eat during the day. She would...
  4. Re: How are reflux and slow weight gain related?

    My daughter did have mucousy poo but I was never sure if that was reflux related or the all-mysterious colic. Something bothered her, and she got better around the same time we changed her last med...

    Re: Reflux?

    I think I read somewhere that almost if not all babies do have some sort of reflux, but it seems that some tolerate it better than others. I think I also read that silent reflux is more painful...
  6. Re: Night feedings, day strikings, pumping schedule

    Thanks. She's almost 6 months old and sometimes she will just rub her gums frantically on my collarbone so I'm sure there's something going on like that there. She did better today so I'm hoping...

    Re: pulling away from breast

    Can someone give me an example of a good nursing necklace? I could use one, because my daughter will find other (sometimes painful) ways of occupying herself. I was trying to think of things that...
  8. Night feedings, day strikings, pumping schedule

    Okay, the good news is that my baby has done well for weight gain 2 months in a row now! Yay, baby. She has reflux and I think the new meds are helping as well as maturity.

    Here's the thing,...

    Re: Rant!

    It seems like there are a lot of women my mother's age who think babies need to be able to drink from a bottle, and if they don't, it's just plain weird. I let Mom try to give my daughter a bottle...

    Re: Those whose babies have acid reflux

    Your situation doesn't sound like mine -- my dd too also nursed really well at night and not during the day. Days were definitely worse for reflux. I don't know for sure but our reflux issues...

    Re: 3 week old seems in pain while feeding

    Second (third, fourth, whatever) the reflux...does she sometimes make a kind of chewing motion with her mouth as well? If so, she might be like mine with 'silent reflux.' We had an endoscopy which...
  12. Re: Waaaah.. just need a little encouragement

    I don't know where you are, but I was wondering if that attitude was a French thing or not because I get it all the time. The last ped we saw (a sub) actually had the nerve to tell me my baby was...

    Baby's Breath -- normal?

    Okay, this may be a weird question, but did anyone else notice a change in how their baby's breath smelled around 4 months? My dd had a difficult time with digestive issues. I had a very...

    Re: not latching on right side

    I don't know that I have any really helpful suggestions, but when I read your post it triggered an 'oh, yeah' response. Are you right-handed, by any chance? My right boob is smaller, too, and I had...

    Re: Help! Not enough milk!

    Wow, so good to know about the weight thing!

    So are you officially off of the formula supplement? How are things going? As Jenimommy said I sometimes was able to coax dd back for a short feed...

    Re: sleeping too much?

    Sounds good to me! I really don't know what I'd do since my baby generally wakes up every 2-3 hours. I think rest is so important and worry about my little one getting enough. Oh, there she is now!

    Re: MIL supplementing w/rice porridge

    Not if you don't want her to do that! I guess cultural practices could come into play here, but it seems to me that there would be a lot of nutrients missing from rice porridge. I don't know jack...

    Re: Help! Not enough milk!

    How much of the bottle will she take when you add the formula? Will she drink it all? I'm assuming she does, but just wanted to check. I know you hate pumping -- I do, too...it was definitely...

    Re: EBF and poop

    I have a friend whose EBF baby pooped once a week and she told me it was normal. I think she checked it out with her pediatrician, though.
