  1. Re: Pump, nurse, formula. At a cross road..

    Thank you for replying :)

    I should of reworded that, lol. I was able to compromise with my employer when I went back after mat leave with my first. I was just unclear how it could work with a new...
  2. Pump, nurse, formula. At a cross road..

    So the last 9 months have been a challenge, but the last 3 months have been hell. It is all time that I can't get back. I have been under so much stress between caring for my DH, DS and DD that my...
  3. Re: Supply issues after surgery and stress

    I am not sure either. I think it might be because I refuse to change his dressings. I'm not usually bothered by blood or anything but this toe looks like it came from one of the Saw movies, and i...
  4. Supply issues after surgery and stress

    I went for surgery on the 20th of Sept to get my gall bladder removed. I tried stock piling and was able to get 6 6 oz bottles saved up and I got a sample can of formula just in case. I ended up...
  5. Re: This is getting extremely frustrating!

    He had his shots today and the scale at the health nurse said he was 15lbs 02oz. He had 23 1/2 oz in bottles today and nursed a total of 80 min. It's turning me into panick mode. I'm constantly...
  6. Re: This is getting extremely frustrating!

    He's 6 months now and he is 14lbs 15oz. He was 9lbs 1oz at birth and 8lbs 14oz at discharge. Yes, I still pump 30+/day. It's because his weight gain has been slow since he was 3 months. I took...
  7. This is getting extremely frustrating!

    Another dietician appointment today, and another disappointment. He only gained 1 1/2 oz. She seems to be getting pretty concerned. Now that he is on solids she told me to feed him the cereal and...

    Surgery and breastfeeding.

    I am scheduled to have my gallbladder removed on Sept 20th :cheer. Just wondering what other moms have done to prepare for this or any other surgery in regards to breastfeeding. My surgeon gave me...
  10. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    I live in Vancouver, Canada. I phoned around and am just waiting to hear back from one place to book an appointment.

    We went in for another weigh-in today and from last week he lost 1 1/2oz, he...
  11. Re: Cyst, infected pimple, mastitis..? Picture included..

    I started taking them last night. He put me on Cephallexin and I've also been taking Advil. I've been putting hot compresses on it still. The redness around it has gone down, and there is a scabu on...
  12. Re: Cyst, infected pimple, mastitis..? Picture included..

    I would say yes, since there is a red rash ring around it. I went to the dr today and he is the one that said it was a cyst. It was a walkin clinic I went to though. I thought that cysts were more...
  13. Cyst, infected pimple, mastitis..? Picture included..

    What is it?! I got it the other day, thinking it was a pimple I tried popping it. The next day same thing, hot compressed it tried to pop it, but nothing. Now this is what it looks like today. I...
  14. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    The ped that was looking after his spinal ultrasounds suggested the dietician and the dermatologist. My family Dr said that there would probably only be one appointment with the dermatologist but to...
  15. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    I pump between 30-40 oz in a day. Since I started pumping so early when I had him I have a surplus so I usually end the day with about 2-4 bottles in the fridge.

    He only nursed 10 minutes because...
  16. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    He had another weight gain today. Gained 2 oz in 2 weeks, so now we are down to 3gms a day! I'm very puzzled. The lady I see sent me home with some charts. SO now I have to chart how much I pump,...
  17. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    Yes. She was 6lbs 15oz at birth. All her gains were steady. She doubled her weight by 4 months, yet we're waiting for him to double his.
  18. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    Forgot to add that he sometimes puts up quite a fuss when he's latched. He'll have a few sucks, pop off start fussing, latch. Sometimes this happend for the whole feed, and sometimes it's just for...
  19. Re: Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    He does nurse/bottle feed 8-10 times a day, some days he'll only feed 7 times. The majority of the time he seems quite happy and content, but like all babies he has his off days. When he nurses...
  20. Feeling...discouraged and disapointed

    My last few posts have been regarding weight gain. The last few weigh ins I've been so sure he's gained a good amount only to be slightly shocked and disappointed. He has lots of wet diapers and...
  21. Re: Help needed. 6 days old, bottles..

    It's very frustrating when breast feeding isn't what you thought it would be. 3 years ago I had my DD and was devestated with the breastfeeding issues we had. I have inverted nipples so I couldn't...

  23. Re: 4 month checkup, pretty slow weight gain

    So I have seen my bottle supply in the fridge decrease dramatically. Before I had 8-10 bottles by the end of the day, It used to sing to me when I opened the door!! Now I feel like I'm struggling...

    Re: I'm thinking of giving up!
