    Re: Fussy breastfed baby

    :hug Sorry you're having a hard time, mama. My first two babies weren't nearly as fussy as my third, and it was very difficult. There were many times that he cried regardless of what I was doing -...

    Re: Pacifier use

    I agree that you don't want to get into the habit of giving the pacifier too often. I think at 6 weeks, it's probably fine to use one some of the time provided baby is gaining well, and not hungry....

    Re: Engorged on one side only.

    I totally agree with everything mommal said. To answer your latest question, your body should start to get the message to make less on the one breast within a few days. Supply can be very touchy for...

    Re: Blood in stool

    I'm sorry mama! I'm in the same boat, but I had to eliminate dairy and soy. It's not easy. But I'm glad to see you got it figured out. :) :hug

    Re: New nipple pain

    I was also going to suggest possible teething. My little guy has been teething and when they're really bothering him I notice that he latches differently and kind of grinds his gums. :eye Thankfully...

    Re: 19 day old umbilical cord?

    :ita I would still give him a bath. As long as it's looking normal it'll be fine. :) It'll be off before you know it!

    Re: Blood in milk

    This happened to me once that I noticed. I was pretty alarmed, but I think it's more common than one would think. As long as it's not due to an injury from the pump, I wouldn't worry about it too...

    Re: has anyone else taken advair?

    I've been on the Advair 250 Diskus for years and have BF'd 3 kids with no supply issues at all. :)
  11. Re: Five month old losing interest in breastfeeding?

    Aw, I'm sorry you guys are having a rough time, mama. :hug It sounds like he's getting a lot of your milk which is awesome! My thought when I read your post is that right around that age, there is SO...

    Re: Breastfeeding and the flu virus...

    Keep nursing. It is the best thing for a sick baby! It'll keep him well hydrated, and provide antibodies against the virus that you're fighting.:hug I hope you both feel well soon!

    Re: HELP!!! Very fussy 5 days old baby

    There could be a few issues at hand. Is he being bottle fed some of the time? If so, it could be that he's liking the idea of not having to work for his food. When does he seem to fuss? Does he latch...
  14. Re: Nursing while lying down...persistent ear infections

    I don't think it's contributing to the ear infections, but that's just my personal opinion. Every child is different and I think some are just more prone to getting them. :shrug I would continue to...

    Re: is this a growth spurt?

    I would vote for a growth spurt. I'm sorry, I bet you're so tired. The early weeks can be totally exhausting. :hug Lots of moms find that they get much more sleep if they co-sleep, so that could...

    Re: should you pump after nursing?

    Yes. Pumping after you nurse will increase your supply. You're telling your body that it needs to make more milk, to keep up with your LO. Pumping in the early weeks can be a bit dangerous because...

    Re: Watery/mucousy poops?

    It honestly sounds normal to me. :shrug As long as you're not seeing blood, or very frequent poops (I'm talking multiple times a day), I'd not worry about the liquid consistency. Some mucous can be...
  18. Re: Please help! At my wits end - Pumping hurts so much!!

    Sorry you're having trouble, mama. :hug Breastfeeding a newborn can certainly present challenges, but at 3 weeks it is definitely still possible to get that baby back to the breast. What problems...

    Re: Does this sound like oversupply?

    :ita with Mommal. The green frothy poops would be the #1 symptom that you're seeing, that would indicate to me that it could be. Do your breasts feel full or engorged often? It's normal for that to...
  20. Re: Two weeks plus, no poop?! Super efficient, or trouble?

    :clap Hooray for poop!

    Great advice Mommal, as usual. :bow
  21. Re: Bad sore and crack at base of nippple Bout ready to qui

    I'm so sorry, mama. :hug I have an 8 week old and I had many of the same issues you had, also on the left breast. He always got a decent latch on the right side, but the left one is inverted, so it...
  22. Re: BF going TOO well? She won't take any artificial nipples

    I'm sorry mama. :( That's really hard. I can totally relate to how tough it is to have a screaming baby in the car and even though my DS will take a soother, he doesn't like the car unless he's...

    Re: Fussiness while nursing

    Congrats on your baby girl!

    Do you think it's a fast let down that's frustrating her? Sorry, I didn't understand from your post. If she's pulling off the breast or choking/gagging during let...

    Re: Pumping to help relieve oversupply

    Aw, dealing with OS is really tough. :hug I had it bad with my second son, and there was a point where I felt like I had to pump. Like you, I was worried about plugged ducts and mastitis, and since...
  25. Re: Can my BFing pattern be messing with my fertility?

    I personally wouldn't drop any of your nursing sessions (unless you're ready to do so), because I don't think that has anything to do with why you're not pregnant yet. My periods came back different...
