  1. Re: Help please quickly. 4.5 wk old not nursing...

    Entirely possible she's just sleepy, she might have fussed so much without you that she wore herself out. My dd went through some long sleep sessions as a newborn. If you feel she needs to eat, try...

    Re: medela hoses...

    I would soak them in bleach water to remove the spot myself, but replacing them wouldn't hurt. Also, holding the tubes at one end and twirling them fast over your head is a good way to dry them...
  3. Poll: Re: Are outside influences encouraging you to wean?

    I said yes. Apparently in the world of family courts, breastfeeding is just an excuse to keep a baby from its father.

    Re: Question about milk

    I think you definitely need to phase out the pumping...it's like telling your body that you're feeding twins. In addition to dropping sessions slowly, maybe you can pump for less time? Just enough...

    Re: so i finally gave in...

    I'm right there with you. I was hoping to delay solids for some reason (I think mainly because I like her innocent yellow BM poop!) but alas, the kid clearly wanted some and grabbed the spoon from...

    Re: Speeding up the Baby Led Solids Process?

    Does your lo see you and other children eating? My 5 mo tries to grab things I'm eating and stuff them in her mouth. When I eat with utensils I sit near her and make it clear what I'm doing and act...

    Re: feed a cold??

    I'm a big believer in vitamin C, so when I think we've been exposed, I take my regular vitamins and extra vitamin C, drink plenty and get lots of rest so that I can make plenty of antibodies for...

    Re: how do I prepare her for this?

    Believe me, if I could, I would. I am all for her having a relationship with her dad, and wish she spent more time with him than she does right now, but I don't want it to interfere with...

    how do I prepare her for this?

    Okay, so this sucks but I can't afford to fight it anymore and have no choice but to accept it and make the best of it, so I want to do what I can to ease the baby's transition:

    Re: post partum again?

    Go to a different doctor. If your OB can't get you in, see your family doctor, if neither can get you in, go to an emergency room. Treating depression, especially when you have a little one to care...

    Re: Will she hate me

    As long as you are loving her and meeting her needs, she won't hate you. You have plenty of time to help transition her to drinking from a cup or bottle so she can take milk. The hardest part for...

    Re: is this gross?

    I don't think it sounds gross...dry cereal (for adults) is usually fruit flavored with bananas, strawberries, cranberries, etc. and mixed with milk. We don't think twice about that!

    Re: breastmilk and poop

    Oh my, I wish dd pooped 3 or 4 times a day! In her life, I've probably changed 5 diapers total that weren't poopy, and until about 3 months, that was almost hourly. Now I'm lucky to go 3 hours. :)...

    Re: Sleeping...only on mom

    My lo would only stay asleep if set in an infant seat that was vibrating. Otherwise, have you considered a sling? That way you can wear the sleeping baby around and let her nurse to her heart's...

    I don't have any advice either (I quit), but I totally understand how difficult it is. Probably the hardest thing we are ever expected to do, and a very personal internal struggle. Everyone told me...

    I have no suggestions but I understand what you're going through.

    I introduced a bottle at 4 weeks which dd took fine about once a week. When I tried to go back to work when she was 3 months she...

    Re: breastmilk and poop

    In animals, "seedy" poop is undigested fats, so I imagine babies start becoming more efficient at digestion, esp. during a growth spurt, and that's probably a good sign.

    Honestly I never notice a let down anymore and I do think there are times baby wants to nurse but doesn't get much. I just offer anyway. She's plenty chubby and I trust my body to give her what she...

    Re: night weaning

    Don't have any suggestions but I think it is normal. My lo is almost 5 mo and nurses 2-3 times at night. We cosleep so it doesn't bother me because I barely wake up. If you are working, nursing...
  22. Re: how much breastmilk in a bottle should i give 2 my baby?

    I've heard 1.5 oz per hour you are gone. I left a couple bottles of 1-3 oz but she never took bottles well. If your lo will eat 4 or 5 oz I don't think there's any reason to limit him. Do you...

    I haven't actually compared it, but I'm betting the tubing is exactly the same as airline tubing for fish aquariums - check Petsmart. :)
