  2. Re: arching, biting, crying, I got it all!

    I find the arching and crying concerning. That is common with reflux, but it is also common with over-active letdown, or anything else that causes pain or frustration while nursing. I would try to...

    Re: normal?

    Re: normal?

    :ita I agree with the previous posts about growth spurt/illness impact. I would add, however -- not to depress you, but to prepare you -- that babies with reflux sufficient to warrant medication...

    Re: Pedi vent - and weight gain questions

    I would also try to get another opinion. I'm no physician, but to me it sounds like either an issue with her ability to absorb fat, or the fat content in your milk supply.... Have either of those...

    Re: Teething Help...

    I use Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets, as well as wet/frozen washcloths. The teething tablet have been especially helpful for my LO when teething interferes with sleep.

    Re: New mom, questions..

    If things do not improve after doing all that is suggested for overactive letdown, I suggest talking to your pediatrician. My son did something very similar, and after doing everything to deal with...

  15. Re: Growth spurt cont'd - lo no sleep/last this long??

    In my experience, growth spurts can lead to sleep interruption day and night, as well as LOTS of nursing. That said, I will add that it can be helpful to remember that babies go through a gazillion...

    Re: Wet sound after BF

    The sound you describe is very common among reflux babies. I would mention it to your pediatrician, if you haven't already, but it is usually just the result of the fluid that makes its way into the...

    Re: Oald

    I always just let the forceful letdown squirt out into a diaper or other cloth. My son would start to choke and gag, unlatch (or I'd do it for him if he was clining on), I'd let the milk squirt...

    Re: Organic milk for $20!

    I don't think I would pay $20 for it, but I would look into brands that may not be organic, but at least do not have RSBT and other disturbing things in it. I would also consider placing a call to...

    Re: Baby sleeping on the breast-help!

    I used to use my finger to tickle a little next to my son's mouth, as though I were about to unlatch him. For him, losing contact with the breast was like losing a finger hold on a cliff, so he...
  24. Re: Please help, baby seems hungry constantly!
