    Re: Have I ruined my child?

    Agreed!

    Taking vitamins while nursing is really more for your benefit, if you feel like you are not getting enough. They are in no way a requirement.

    Re: Suplementing

    Did your pump come with bottles, and are you using those bottles? I found, with my son, the standard Medela nipples were too fast for him and he choked. If you haven't already, look for a different...

    Re: Suplementing

    I wouldn't consider using a lactation consultant "breaking down", in fact it is quite the opposite, because you are taking control of the situation. We see a lot of women come onto this forum at...

    Re: Suplementing

    We did this with my son because he was premature and jaundiced, causing him to fall asleep at the breast very quickly. No amount of poking, tickling, stripping off clothes, etc. could keep him awake...
  5. Re: Cleaning of pump parts while at work

    I never washed my pump parts in between pumping at work. I would either rinse with warm water and leave out to air dry either on a towel on my desk or in a plastic bowl sitting in an open pump bag,...

    Re: Airplane flight at 4 months old

    I just few United in March and looked specifically to see if I could wear baby girl in a ring sling but their policy said no. The policy online says this: "The following child restraint devices may...

    Re: Airplane flight at 4 months old

    Most airlines in the US do now allow baby to be in a sling, or any other device that attaches baby to mom, during take off and landing. You can try to get away with it, but don't be surprised if the...

    Re: Vitamin D drops?

    There have been many discussions on this forum about the need to give vitamin D to BF babies, and the short answer is: sometimes. There are risk factors and you have to weigh those factors. We have...

    Re: Airplane flight at 4 months old

    I have always been sensitive to the change in air cabin pressure during flying, and I would guess that take-off is not going to be a big issue. I would leave her in the seat, then if she is upset...
  10. Re: High needs baby and daycare decisions

    In my experience with three daycares, two caregivers with eight babies is a pretty typical ratio. Our state allows 1:5, but all of them tried to keep it 1:4. You say it was really calm while you...
  11. Re: Going back to work - HR telling me to pump in the bathro

    Just because all of the conference rooms and offices have windows and glass does not mean you can't make them pump appropriate. You and HR can arrange to have binds or curtains put up. I travel to...

    I always interpreted that to mean they can stay sitting up if you set them in the sitting position.
  13. Re: Pumping after bariatric surgery

    I wasn't going to chime in on this because I don't have personal experience, but since there doesn't seem to be anybody with BTDT experience maybe I can give a few thoughts.

    Re: Throwing up after solid

    At 6 months baby's digestive system is still very young and could be sensitive to certain foods, but that doesn't mean it will be a persistent problem. I had a friend whose son was sensitive to rice...

    When you say you push for more at the end of a pumping session, what does that entail. Hands on pumping? I cannot stress enough how important hands on pumping is for a working mom. That means...
  16. Re: red breasts - what could this be?

    I was thinking this when I read this yesterday, too, but I am no expert. Just because you don't have a fever doesn't mean you don't have an infection. You said you had cracked nipples, which can...
  17. Re: serious biting and a traumatized mama

    I agree with maddieb, for now I would nurse as usual, try to stop the bite before it happens, and hope this is a short lived phase. In my narrow experience of two kids, they both had some biting...

    Re: start early or wait

    I would wait until 6 months, but I am kind of crazy opinionated about starting solids before babies are completely ready. Is she sitting up by herself and grabbing things with her hands and putting...

    It is totally possible. If you subscribe to the theories of elimination communication (EC), babies are born with the desire to NOT eliminate on themselves and have to get used to diapers over time,...

    You original description of having a smaller output, thinner milk, and a tender chest makes me wonder if you are not doing a thorough job of removing milk with your pump. (I don't want to say...

    Re: when to switch bottle nipples?

    If you are away from him 10 hours then 12-14 ounces is within normal. My son, who was petite, would regularly eat 14+ ounces during a 10 hour separation, then wake 3-4 times per night to nurse more....

    Re: Advisse about baby nourished

    Did I read that right? He drinks 8oz bottles? That is double the size of a typical BF baby bottle. 3x8 is 24oz in bottles alone! If that is not a typo, I would cut back on bottle size.

    At...
  25. Re: Brand new mom-so overwhelmed with breast feeding

    The latch is going to be on and off for a while, because she is still learning. It will get incrementally better until it is second nature and takes no thought at all. You said the football hold is...
