    Very distracted baby

    She comes off the breast all the time. She has a great latch and I think I have my let down and oversupply in check so I dont think its that.

    Re: erratic feeding, supply shrinking

    I am sure someone more knowlegable will come along but I want to say that it sounds like your wife is doing fine.

    Re: Spit up thru nose??

    My LO has done this too and it scares me to death.

    Re: I think I have raynaud's phenomenon

    I have reynauds but it hasnt caused much of a problem during bfeeding. Only one side shows it at all. My nip turns very white after feeding. I have a tiny bit of pain associated with it but...
  5. Re: I did something bad today and am wondering if I should pump and dump.

    I quit a month before I got preggers and this is the first one I have had in sooo long.

    Wow. I could have written this post.

    I am still trying to discern between food (cow's milk allergies), OALD and reflux.

    She has gotten better but sometimes still arches her back and screams...
  9. Re: Anyone treating their reflux babies with meds?

    Oh that would be awesome! I hate it for her that she cries after every meal, cries when she burps, cries when she spits up. She is so sweet otherwise..mealtimes are a *%(*^!
  10. Re: Anyone treating their reflux babies with meds?

    Thanks girls. My dd is 6 weeks old.

    I have heard that the prevacid works well too but my dr. wont prescribe that as it is not approved for use in children under a year. Zantac is ok for...

    I just got a zantac rx for Grayson. Iam a bit worried about using it but I cant stand seeing her in pain after her meals. We have ruled out everything else, allergies, gas, burps, etc, etc and she...

  16. Temas: gassiness

    Re: gassiness

    Ive been supplementing too (and pumping to maintain supply). I use the gentlease enfamil (made just for gassy babies) and it seems to help a lot with the gas and fussiness. She was actually way...

    Re: No milk so how do you enjoy food?

    I know how you feel!

    I gave up dairy for a week to see if it was causing my lo's issues (I know it may take longer than that to know for sure) but it almost destroyed me!

    I am a huge milk...
  19. I feel guilty but I just dont enjoy bfeeding.

    It makes me sad. I thought it would be a nice, quiet, peaceful bonding time for us but it really isnt. I KNOW its the best thing for her and good for me too but I am starting to wonder if I am...

    My lo had an issue with my oversupply and didnt ever have blood or mucous in her poo.

    Try eliminating dairy for a week or two...
  22. My LO gets sooo upset after afternoon feedings.

    Her face turns red and she throws her head back and just wails.

    She only seems to do this in the afternoon and evening. She nurses fine and then I sit her up to burp her and she loses it. Anyone...

  24. Re: Advice on feeding problems due to Reflux in 11-week old

    I dont think my lo has reflux but she does exhibit a lot of the same tendencies that yours does.
