    Re: Squealing and kicking while nursing...

    Now you would think they would pull off if they need to burp, most do. Mine ain't letting go of that boobie for nuthin'! So, when he starts squirming, I have to pull him off and burp him. ...

    Re: HELP! 10 month old only breastfeeds!

    Saying breastmilk needs to be supplemented always sets off the red flags for me. I remember reading how iron is recommended for breastfeeding because there was less iron in breastmilk and THEN more...

    Re: What do you think?

    Poo! BF babies do too get sick, generally they just don't do it as often. Your breastmilk is just right for your baby.

    Your baby is gaining weight and has plenty of wet diapers? Is he alert? ...

    Re: I have stopped breastfeeding

    A spandex shirt! :D

    Well, I like mine, just clingy enough to give me a bit of a support and just loose enough that I can lift it for breastfeeding. And at night, we don't wear anything. I feel...

    Re: Desperate for help...

    Lanolin did not help me. All I used was expressed breastmilk and letting the nipples air dry. Once I got the latch right, my nipples healed quickly, even the blisters. No medicine. Just to let...

    Re: Thrush?

    Change his latch, eh? Not as easy as it sounds! My wee one does not like to be positioned. If he's irritated he sort of circles around the boob and puts up his hands to block his mouth! Kind of...

    Re: Sweet breath? long-sorry

    I don't know about the sweet breath, but do know a bit about the green poo. Does he nurse a lot, every 30 minutes or so? Do you switch breasts each time?

    It is possible that he is getting too...

    Re: Thrush?

    Don't have the GV yet. The blisters are becoming easier to bear. I do think it's abrasion/latch. The problem likely is due to me not squishing my breast on him because I CAN seal off his nose this...

    Re: Thrush?

    The directions I have for Gentian Violet are posted on KellyMom. You did not treat you & and baby correctly, so I'd try that again.

    Perhaps, but I did not say not to do it. Her post was falling away unanswered.

    It is NOT recommended to make the bottle easier if you wish your baby to take your breast. It's also advised that you don't use a bottle early on if you want your baby to continue at your breast...

    Re: 5 month old with TEETH!

    I'm told that a firm "No" and pulling off the breast when it happens often works. Be CAREFUL not to be too "scary" as this can cause a nursing strike.

    Hmm, I am hearing all sorts of things that can be thrush. I do not have obvious symptoms but have other smaller ones which could be bad latching or thrush. How to know?

  20. Re: Breastfeeding, Caffeine,Alcohol, and hyperactive milk production

    Caffeine and alcohol do go into your milk. It's up to you if you want this to happen. If you cannot quit, I would reduce. ONE glass of a caffeine beverage (or get caffeine free or root beer) and...

    Re: sore nipples + slow feeding

    Baby might be irritated that his food is not ready for him when he latches. In the beginning, I had to express a bit of milk on the nipple and then get my son to latch.
