  1. Re: Terrible rash and screaming at breast

    So tomorrow will be 2 wks since I cut out dairy and I don't notice a difference in his behavior. The rash is gone but he still has short feedings and often cries after a few minutes of nursing, not...
  2. Re: Terrible rash and screaming at breast

    I decided to try eliminating dairy to see if it helps. Not so easy, but worth it if it helps. Figured it doesn't hurt to try. The rash looks so much better but I doubt that had anything to do with...
  3. Re: Terrible rash and screaming at breast

    Does this sound like a possible dairy allergy? I wondered with the rash but doc didn't mention it. The rash is pretty bad, covering his entire face (poor baby). And he seems bothered by it, rubbing...
  4. Re: Terrible rash and screaming at breast

    I never spray milk when I unlatch. In fact, I rarely leak. The only reason I believe I have a strong letdown is because I feel it letdown and then immediately he gulps, chokes, and often lets go...

    Thank you
  6. Terrible rash and screaming at breast

    I'm very worried about my LO and don't know what to do. I have a 7 wk old that I am exclusively breastfeeding. He's developed a terrible rash all over his face that has spread to his neck and...
  7. Doc says not nursing for long enough each Breast

    I have a newborn 8 days old. I nursed my first for over 2 yrs and although successful, really struggled in the beginning. I was so happy because everything with this LO seemed to be going so well. ...

    Re: breastfeeding with shield

    I nursed my first with a shield and really struggled with it because I so badly wanted to without it. Everyone kept encouraging me to try without it and suggested I may have low supply as a result. ...
  9. Re: Coping with sudden changes & nap time struggles

    Sometimes he will nap in the car, rarely ever in the stroller. But I don't see how I could drive around for an hour in this nasty weather we have. The second I stop driving he typically wakes up...
  10. Coping with sudden changes & nap time struggles

    Hi ladies,
    this forum helped me through many early nursing struggles so I figured I'd reach out for help because I'm feeling lost again. I am 7 weeks pregnant and my milk has dried up almost...

    Re: slight anemia

    My son was born full term and I do not have a history of anemia. Wonder why he is anemic at this time? I am going to give him the supplement and we will retest in 3 months. Is this something I...

    Re: How and when to wean

    Thank you for your replies. To answer a few questions, typically on work days, I nurse before I leave, then again when I return, before dinner, and before bed (4x)- it used to be more often, but he...

    How and when to wean

    My LO is almost a year- it's been a long, bumpy road with nursing, but I am happy to say that I will reach my goal of a year. Lately however, I have been hoping to continue much longer (as long as...

    Re: is this the end?

    I'm sure I probably am over thinking this- thanks for the encouragement and support. I will have to ask dc what they are using as cues- I'm guessing they a just going more based on time, except for...

    Re: is this the end?

    I should add that he is not a big eater and in the beginning at daycare there were days that he didn't even take 9 ounces in 9 hours- because of this and his weight concerns I told them to feed on...

    Re: is this the end?

    Thanks for the info & suggestions. I'm just feeling really defeated at this point and while I really want to keep nursing, I don't think I can emotionally withstand this constant battle. These last...

    Re: is this the end?

    So one more question: is it normal for older babies to start dropping feedings? Again today, he didn't want to nurse before lunch (solids) but would take a bottle. I'm wondering if I should just...

    My 10 month old is nursing less and less as well, but I'm worried because he is in the 1st percentile for weight (55th for height though). I keep offering and he will nurse for about 3 minutes...

    is this the end?

    Hi mommas,

    I have a 10 month old (10 months, 1 1/2 weeks) and he is starting to refuse the breast more often. Last Saturday night he woke up vomitting every 5-20 minutes for about three hours. ...
  23. Re: Help!! Baby not gaining enough at 6 mo check

    His schedule varies day to day, but I can try to give you the average day when I'm at home and at work. During the work week, I wake him at 4 am to feed if he hasn't woken on his own (will generally...
