    Re: Juice

    Most babies have a nutritive suck and a comfort suck. If they are getting milk you can hear and see them swallowing. When they are dozing off to sleep their suck usually changes to just a comfort one...

    Re: Getting a good start in hospital

    As far as I know unless there is something wrong with the baby they should not take him/her from your hospital room. The baby should sleep in your room in a crib. After you birth (unless he's being...

    Re: First finger food ideas of non-cooking mom

    Re: Green poop

    When my DS had green poop my LLL leader also told me it was a hindmilk/foremilk imbalance. Are you switching breasts during your feeding sessions? If you are, then it's possible that your LO isn't...

    Re: wean for alone time?

    I think you should figure out how you feel about all of it before allowing your bf to influence you one way or the other. I'm not saying to ignore your bf's feelings on the matter but you are the one...

    Re: How many days...

    I agree. As long as they're exclusively BF then they can go many days without one. As long as he's wetting then he should be fine. My DS used to go a week sometimes without a poop and he was fine....
