  1. Re: Transition NICU baby from bottle to exclusively breast? Help!

    One thing to watch for and consider is that preemies often have gastro-esophageal reflux because their digestive systems didn't have as much time to develop. There are some who, rather than spitting...
  2. Re: how do I ban breastfeeding for four hours before surgery?

    In addition, I found that my DS was so distracted by being in the hospital that, when the required 4 hours unexpectedly turned into 8 hours, he handled it much better than I would ever have imagined....

    Re: Violence while nursing

    Re: Bleem

    Thanks, mamas -- there isn't anywhere else I could share this story where it would have even a fraction of the meaning it has sharing it with you after all these years of support...

    Bleem

    That, evidently, is a mathematical term for the otherwise unnamed number when you've run out of 3 but haven't quite reached 4, and that, according to Lorenzo, is how old he is because somehow he got...
  6. Re: Help with my extreme breastfeeder!

    That's how my son was, until he was 2. It's grueling....

  8. Re: Low Iron - Bad Eater - Loves to Nurse

    And, on the flip side, Lorenzo didn't eat solids until he was over 2 years old and never had low iron levels. :shrug

    Will she drink smoothies? Flaxseed meal and black strap molasses are both good...
  9. Re: 5 week old ... question about changes ?

    My bet is that your body is beginning to adjust production, she is getting more efficient at nursing AND being congested is making nursing more challenging/less comfortable.

    Re: Is DD aspirating????

    My thoughts are:

    a) She is letting milk pool in her mouth as she gets sleepy, and then, as she's drifting off, her body relaxes and she unintentionally allows the milk to head down into her...
  13. Re: When you don't feel like nursing..

    Here are a few things I recall doing:

    *setting a timer or describing after what event(s) he WOULD be able to nurse
    *doing something extremely silly and unexpected
    *starting off small and keeping...
  14. Re: Suddenly spitting up a lot - What could be causing this?

    Excess saliva from teething can cause stomach upset, so it could be directly related to the new teeth coming in. Does the spitting up seem to cause any pain or other problems?

  17. Re: 6 day old baby in NICU, I feel like I'm failing to produce enough milk

    In addition to the excellent advice already offered, in my experience, one of the most frequently overlooked methods of increasing supply for NICU moms is skin to skin time with baby. Even a baby on...

  19. Re: My 8.5 months old baby wants to nurse every hour.. and no solids

  20. Re: Reflux medicine, feeding habits, and weight gain

    How often is your LO nursing? What is his weight now?

    Nursing has an analgesic effect for babies. If he was in pain before the medication, is there any possibility that he has simply slowed...
  21. Re: Newborn Cries All Day ... Lactose Overload/GERD/Allergy?

    I would suggest not attaching to the idea that there is only one thing at play. So often with babies there are multiple things going on -- some totally normal developmental things, some medical...
