    Re: poop issues

    My baby has some poops that are green, some that are yellow, some that are dark yellow, some are seedy, some are foamy. She is growing well, happy, eats like a champ. I don't worry about it. It...

    Re: Giving additional water

    Just make sure YOU are drinking enough water and nurse on demand. Breast milk is mostly water anyway.
  3. Re: Help! Baby not eating enough.

    That sounds like plenty of milk at daycare. Nursing more at night is good for your supply, so I agree that should be your first step if you are worried. You could also call the doc and ask if you can...
  4. Re: Long-winded new mom seeks guidance and help (sorry)

    Ooh I feel you mama, my nipples were in rough shape the first few weeks. I made the mistake of "fighting through it" and only just realized my baby had a posterior tongue tie at 4.5 months old. If I...
  5. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    Also between 1-3 ounces per feeding is perfectly normal and it is normal for it to vary by time of day! You are doing great.
  6. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    I would even go so far as to ditch the SNS. The more milk baby removes from your breasts the more you will make. Have you considered doing a 24 or 48 hour nursing holiday? It is only a good idea if...
  7. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    Honestly I would recommend only weighing every week or two. Remember the more you supplement the less breast milk baby is going to want, which hurts your supply and could theoretically be...

    Re: Traveling with baby

    Maybe the best solution for the airplane would be a breast-friend pillow?

    Re: Traveling with baby

    The ring sling hurts my back, I am a big fan of the Ergo if you can afford it. But that is a personal preference. Whatever carrier you choose wear it around at home a bit before you get on the plane....

    Re: 4 months of pain...lip tie?

    Just another update, we saw the pediatrician/IBCLC yesterday. She definitely thinks most of my pain is vasospasm, caused by a few factors - R's high palate, short tongue, "nibbling" when she is done...
  11. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    So a couple observations - 2.7 ounce gain in 1 day is kind of a lot. Average is around 1 ounce/day. And 3.7 ounces in 1 feeding is also kind of a lot. 2-3 is pretty normal.

    My point being that it...
  12. Re: Mastitis and sore half nipple :(

    Milk storage bags, you can get them at target, walmart, babies r us, or online. I use the target store brand.
  13. Re: Mastitis and sore half nipple :(

    Hi and congrats on the little one!
    Is the left nipple inverted? If so pumping might help pull it out. Otherwise you might want to talk to a lactation consultant about using a nipple shield on that...

    Re: 4 months of pain...lip tie?

    Just an update - I finaly saw the NP/LC today (had to reschedule a couple times because she wanted a long enough time spot with me). She was super nice and understanding and thorough - and didn't...

    Re: Ready to relactate!

    The only thing I would consider is the sleeping through the night. Could you wake him up for one nighttime feed? This regimen already sounds pretty exhausting so I wouldn't blame you if you decide...
  16. Re: Myriad of issues with 6 week old/ low milk supply / pain

    Wow, you have had a really rough time. Good job sticking with it!

    I think any time there is a weight gain issue seeing an IBCLC is important. I wonder if you are using the correct pump flanges?...

    Re: 4 months of pain...lip tie?

    Yeah I am on the fence as to whether or not I would do anything about it. My milk supply is fine, she is gaining weight fine, It's just painful. I have an appointment Tuesday to see an NP who also...

    Re: 4 months of pain...lip tie?

    Sometimes she flanges her lip ok, but other times when I try to flange it she pulls off and then wants to latch back on with it tucked in. She'll do that over and over again.

    4 months of pain...lip tie?

    I've been treated for thrush, fought with her latch and most of all tried to ignore and deny this pain away but it isnt working. I hurt all the time. I can feel myself slipping into depression from...
  20. Re: New Medela Symphony Rental - increased output?

    It took about a week with the symphony pumping ever 2 hours at work for me to see an increased supply. Now few weeks later I am back to every 2.5 hours and maintaining my supply ok.

    With such a...
  21. Poor latch when comfort nursing?

    So R is pushing four months now and after several weeks of thrush treatment I think I finally know what it is to nurse pain-free. Lately though I am noticing that as she starts to fall asleep on the...

    Re: latch problems at 3 years

    Is it possible baby is distracting him, causing him to pull off or forget what he is doing? If that is the case maybe he needs 5 minutes of just you and him time while someone else holds baby? He can...
  23. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    So I work in a doctor's office and we HATE when people do this...but I'm going to suggest it anyway. Walk in to wherever you were referred to go (no appointment), and don't leave until you have...
  24. Re: 4 ounce min requirement at daycare

    Really? I would ask for the name of whomever you need to contact in the government to verify that. Maybe for formula that kind of minimum makes sense but not for breast milk. It certainly could...
  25. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    When I nurse side-lying I always have to have a big pillow behind my back for support. I also nurse with R's head on my arm, not all the way down on the bed. Not sure if that will help you or not but...
