  1. Re: baby led sight? solids? sleep? selfish mama?

    I agree with the pps. With my first, we started at 5 1/2 months. She thrust the food back out with her tongue, but enjoyed the activity. So we just tried here and there maybe 4 times per week until,...

    Re: Did he actually swollow some banana?

    Thanks for the info. That's really interesting. I had never heard of it before, but my brother (at 34 years of age) developed a severe allergy to banana. He said for a while (like several months) he...

    Re: 4 month growth spurt?

    I agree with the pps on the growth spurt stuff. I also wanted to say that I can relate to the fussiness because baby wants socialization! Lately it seems my lo is not content unless me or my DH is...

    Re: 5mo old, how to know when done feeding

    I don't think I really have advice, but I would suggest unlatching him after a minute or so of the delayed sucking pattern and sitting him up on your lap to burp. If he seems content, and your breast...

    Re: Help! Not enough milk!

    Sounds to me like you really don't enjoy the pumping thing! What is baby's reaction if you do not try bottle, but offer breast again in, say, 20 - 30 minutes? Does she absolutely refuse, or will she...

    Re: Can teething affect breastfeeding?

    At that age they've usually become quite the proficient little bfers. Many can empty a breast in no time at all (5 minutes is actually quite a bit of suck-swallow) and it's almost like they're...

    Re: Help! Not enough milk!

    I would recommend "upping" your supply by putting baby to breast more often. I know you say she doesn't nurse well during the day but, if you are around and have the time, I would say this is all the...

    Re: Unable to breastfeed?

    Great job! I say, keep putting the baby to the breast. Pumping is good, too, but baby is better. So, if he'll latch, I would try bfing more than 8 times per day. Try him every hour and a half - two...

    Re: Still painful to nurse

    :hug I'm sorry to hear you are still hurting. Sounds like you are determined, so it will get better, hang in there! Perhaps try expressing some milk out onto the nipple right before latching if you...
  13. Re: She's fine - I'm the one who's confused!

    First of all, :hug and :clap for not giving up. I would rank the initial weeks of breast feeding up there with my most painful and frustrating experiences in life, too. No doubt. Here are some...

    Re: Breast pain - need help!

    I had this burning sensation too. I remember telling the dr. at my 6 week post partum checkup that it felt like my nipple was "on fire". Sounds to me like a shallow latch. It could be happening on...

    Re: Taking too long?

    I gave bottles on occasion due to sore nipples. Did that with both kids. We never had nipple confusion.
    The clamping down and shaking head at two weeks makes me think of gas or let-down. If the milk...

    Re: my baby is hardly ever happy!

    Give it time... your baby should show more happy behavior in months 3 and 4. Try not to worry about all the other happy babies you see. I know it's hard, though. My first didn't roll over (either...

    Re: Taking too long?

    Mangomom,
    It was not long ago that I was walking in your shoes! I totally know exactly what you're saying. My lo had trouble gaining in the beginning. She did not gain her birth weight back until...
  19. Re: Please help! Baby is so upset after every feeding!!

    Are you still feeding from both breasts per feeding? I know this is recommended in the early weeks to stimulate production, but if you have a heavy let-down, perhaps try feeding from only one side...

    We must have tried everything with my first. She also accepted the bottle at 3-4 weeks and then suddenly stopped. (I think she stopped because I stopped offering the bottle for over a week and she...
