    Re: how much to pump?

    I have definitely been wondering about oversupply and forceful let down, but both LCs I worked with said it was reflux that made him twist his head around and come off the breast.

    I was feeding...

    Re: how much to pump?

    He's on prilosec and mylanta, and my diet is about as bland as you can get (chicken, turkey, rice, potatoes). My husband has multiple food allergies, so we are assuming that this is what's happening...

    how much to pump?

    Hello everyone:

    it looks like I'm going to be feeding my baby (15 w/o premie, 8 weeks adjusted) expressed breast milk for most of his feedings for a while--he has severe reflux, and almost every...
  4. help! is anyone around? I'm afraid my milk will be gone by morning

    Hi--sorry for the desperate tone, but I'm losing hope.

    My 3-month-old premie has very bad reflux, so most of our feedings end in crying fits. Until recently he'd spend about ten minutes on the...

    Re: Use of feeding pillow.

    I'm just going to sound the minority opinion--loved the Brest Friend, hated the Boppy. My baby kept sliding into the crevice between me and the pillow; I felt like I spent all my time digging him...
  6. Re: help! any strategies for breastfeeding with reflux?

    thank you all for the response--very helpful. At our GI appointment they suggested that one option was to put him on formula, and I said no. I hope it doesn't come up again.

    The doc told me I had...

    Re: plugged duct/breastfeeding on one side

    I should add: my son has reflux, so we've had a few aborted feedings lately. When he starts screaming and won't stay on the breast (usually after about ten minutes), I take him off and give him a...

    Re: plugged duct/breastfeeding on one side

    Both, I think. I nurse one side per feeding, and then if he wants to eat within two hours, he gets the same breast.

    He's a premie--both the ped and my LC recommended this to make sure he gets...

    Re: plugged duct/breastfeeding on one side

    Kathryn:

    did you continue to do one-sided nursing while you had the plugged duct? if so, did you empty the breast more often?

    Re: plugged duct/breastfeeding on one side

    Thank you!. Yes, I'd read all of that--am interested in hearing if anyone had modified a one-side feeding schedule to heal a plugged duct. And can you then switch back? And how long does it take?

    plugged duct/breastfeeding on one side

    Hi there:

    I've got a plugged-duct situation that's becoming increasingly painful. I generally nurse one one side per feeding, per my LC's instructions--should I alter this until the duct resolves...
  12. Re: help! any strategies for breastfeeding with reflux?

    Thank you so much for all your answers.

    M. doesn't spit up very much, but I can hear a kind of wet bubble sound when he nurses that makes him stop and gag and try to pull off (it's not oversupply;...
  13. help! any strategies for breastfeeding with reflux?

    Hi there:

    I've been hanging out on the boards, just reading, learning a lot. I hope someone can help me.

    I've got a 9 w/o boy, almost 3 weeks adjusted age, with reflux. He's on zantac, mylanta,...
