    Re: Hindmilk Foremilk Imbalance

    This definitely sounds like oversupply. If you're still having trouble getting baby to feed at the breast and still have a lot of engorgement, check out this article:...
  2. Re: Is this oversupply? Or am I the only person in the world

    Did you ever resolve this issue? I recently discovered that I have an oversupply and when my breasts are really full I get that gel-like sensation on the nipple. I honestly thought it was normal. So...

    Supply adjusted, now what?

    I just discovered that I've had a wicked oversupply this whole time, and my babies are 5 months old! I didn't even discover it until I started weaning. The nipple pain got so severe that I started...
  4. Re: How does your baby "ask" to nurse?

    YES. My twins headbutt me, or sometimes other people, when they want milk. The younger twin is especially forceful, and I find it hilarious. They've tried sucking through my shirt, too. They're only...
  5. Re: 3 month old schedule and being fussy

    40th percentile is great! Definitely not underweight. Mine are in the 15th percentile and are at a perfectly healthy weight.

    A baby becomes more and more efficient at extracting milk. Sometimes my...
  6. Re: 3 month old schedule and being fussy

    This is completely normal and, in fact, 6 hours at night is really good at this age. At 5 months old I'm still not quite seeing that consistently with mine. I understand how frustrating the fussiness...
  7. Re: Want to make a big mistake right.

    I, too, was SHOCKED by the extreme fussiness. My babies were so happy most of the time. But in the evenings they, and particularly the younger one, would get so upset that I would sometimes start...

    Re: Anyone else on a tight schedule?

    My 4-month-olds change their schedules from day to day, but naps longer than an hour are not common. Yesterday evening my older twin slept two hours straight and I hardly knew what to do! I started...
  9. Re: Pain! Thrush? So overwhelmed and confused.

    Well, I discovered that a medication I've been taking for sleep and anxiety is a vasoconstrictor, so I feel pretty confident that it is aggravating/causing vasospasms. I've begun easing off of it and...
  10. Re: Want to make a big mistake right.

    Oh, and consider trying dream feeding if you feel your baby isn't eating often enough, but you are wanting her to get her sleep. You can lie down with her in bed and allow her to eat while she's...
  11. Re: Want to make a big mistake right.

    Let me assure you that a lot of what your baby is doing is normal. Mine have acted and continue to act in similar ways and are very successful nursers. Cluster feeding is very common and my babies...
  12. Re: I dont know what pump its better???

    I'm using the Medela Pump in Style and I really like it. I chose it because it has less parts than others, as the diaphragm is inside the motor. I considered the Freestyle because it's so light, but...
  13. Re: No longer a balanced partnership...

    I've been following along and this made me cry. I can empathize with being lost inside myself and overwhelmed by the world. It's encouraging that the right kind of attention helped her to open up and...
  14. Re: Not back to birth weight at two weeks

    My twins were below their birth weight at three weeks. I was terrified. They were so thin! Their problem was sleepiness. Is your baby getting in very many feedings? He should be getting 8-12 in a...

    Re: Reverse cycling?

    Mine did some reverse cycling at 12 weeks shortly after I returned to work and then they started again recently (they are 4 months old). Fortunately, it only lasts a week or two for us. My husband,...
  16. Re: Pain! Thrush? So overwhelmed and confused.

    I don't think it's thrush. I'm almost done with a 2-week diflucan treatment and have seen no improvements. In fact, it's getting worse. I'm on probiotics, the babies are on probiotics, and gentian...
  17. Re: LO refuses to nurse during the day

    I wonder if all of your pumping has created an oversupply problem? Perhaps the oversupply isn't as bothersome at night, but is upsetting your baby during the day? Here is the article on oversupply:

  18. Re: Pain! Thrush? So overwhelmed and confused.

    Unfortunately, he has been one of the least helpful, even though he was so supportive of the breastfeeding when the babies were slow to gain weight. My OBGYN doesn't want to address breastfeeding at...
  19. Re: Best baby carrier for convenient BF?

    I'd love to hear some of these responses, too. I've nursed my babies in the Balboa sling a bit and have attempted it with the Bjorn, but it looks like maybe a ring sling or the Ergo is better?
  20. Re: Pain! Thrush? So overwhelmed and confused.

    Thank you so much, everyone. I swear today I'm seeing improvement, but I'm scared it's all in my mind. I started using Gentian Violet and gave the babies a probiotic last night, plus added a pretty...
  21. Pain! Thrush? So overwhelmed and confused.

    You are all probably getting really tired of hearing about my pain. I've been battling nipple pain for over two months (my twins are almost 4 months old). The pain is worse with pumping and I've...
  22. Re: Desperate to breastfeed but failing :(

    I completely agree. Honestly, I think you are almost there! You can definitely be successful.

    Also, we bought a digital baby scale as soon as we realized we were struggling with weight gain. We...
  23. Re: Desperate to breastfeed but failing :(

    Sounds like you are producing plenty of milk. I suggest giving your baby more time at the breast, not less. I don't think that the burning calories comment makes sense, either. My babies were small,...

    Re: Pain with Pumping

    Just checking in with an update. I treated the thrush with no results and tried a different pump from my insurance company, which hurt worse. So I sprung for a Medela Pump in Style and have seen no...
  25. Re: What to do when secret weapon isn't working??

    Sometimes when the secret weapon isn't working, I give the babies a break from me. I hate to admit defeat, but sometimes someone else is better at rocking them, probably because they have had more...
