    Re: Length of BF sessions?

  2. Re: friend said no to baby wise! But needs help!

    I'd tell her about skin to skin contact. That's a GREAT way to calm everyone down and encourages nursing.

    Re: what is satisfied?

    Could it be teething or possibly trying to fight off an illness?
    Do you have a sling you could put her in? Maybe she really wants to be held close to you and nursing is a way she gets that. That...
  7. Re: Co-Sleeping & Bottle Feeding Q's?

    Pumping right now is extra in addition to your actual supply!! So your body will have to learn to create a extra supply for this new pump baby. Then when your pumping to replace a nursing session...
  8. Re: Amount consumed is greater than amount pumped - has she been going hungry?

    :ita Some babies will happily suck down a bottle even if they aren't the least bit hungry! Especially if they are set down after a bottle (like at daycare, maybe they just want to continue to be held...
  9. Re: Amount consumed is greater than amount pumped - has she been going hungry?

    :ita The previous poster has some really good links!
    You can overfeed with a bottle no matter what's in it, it's the delivery system that's the problem.

    You can help prevent overfeeding by...

    Re: Refusing the cradle hold

    Oh! I read that wrong. 10.5 weeks, it's possible that teeth could have something to do with it.

    Re: Refusing the cradle hold

    I think that's a good idea to get a second opinion. Way to trust your mama gut.
    For a 10 day old it would be very unlikely to be anything with teeth, usually that starts around 2-3 months at the...

    Re: Refusing the cradle hold

    Has she had a recent check up? Sometimes things like an ear infection can cause pain to lay on just one side. Check to make sure nothing is tender or red on her on that side.

    Since she nurses...
  14. Re: I just found some frozen BM in deep frzr--still good?

    Was it in the bottom or was the freezer not opened a lot? You might do a taste/smell test just to be sure. Try it on yourself first to see how it is, I hope it turns out ok!!
  15. Re: Help! Supply issue after 3 days of no Bfing

    It may be that she's got a bit of a bottle preference too, so be patient with her. Your supply may have taken a small hit but should bounce right back with a little dedication.

    Re: Nervous baby?

    :welcome

    Maybe it's possible that you've got too much milk or an over active let down. That can cause your baby to come off the breast when you've had a let down. Does she choke or sputter at the...

  20. Re: I'm tired of feeling like a failure
