  1. Re: At 10 mo., pedi wants me to supplement

    Thanks ladies. Yes they were born early (at 35 weeks) and yes they were small -- 3.5 pounds and 5 pounds. So they've already been hovering off of the growth chart for some time, and were just inching...

    Re: Nipple Shields??

    It took me months to get my girls off the shield. Everyone said to nurse with it on, then slip it off and offer your breast, and they'd magically be able to nurse without it in a week. Well, it took...
  3. At 10 mo., pedi wants me to supplement

    Hi all,

    It's always something, isn't it?

    Hi all,
    I'm nursing 2 month-old twins (they were 5 weeks early, so really only about one month old, adjusted) but have a question that isn't really twin-related.

    A typical feed goes like this:...
  9. Re: 3.5 week old and still not BF

    One of my babies was in the NICU for three weeks, and we only successfully latched once while she was in, and that was for about 2 minutes. She's now breastfeeding, at 7 weeks old, though we are...
