  1. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    Just wanted to update that we started up chiropractic appointments again a few weeks ago with lots of craniosacral work. For the past week or so my little guy has nursed on the right side in a...
  2. Re: Need advice about a RESTLESS BABY...

    I don't have advice either, but my son has been the same way off and on. He's 7 months (today!) and it's been a lot less frequent lately, but some nights he tosses and turns (back to side, back to...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    Just to show how you can't make any decisions about sleep ahead of time, and all babies are different, my kids did not nurse to sleep beyond the first few months. My daughter occasionally would, but...

  5. Re: Weaned 8 months ago & there's still milk and pain

    Just a thought -- if you do see an IBCLC, see if they can recommend a doctor who specializes in breast issues near you. My IBCLC was very hesitant to give me any health advice or diagnosis (she...

    Re: Pump in style troubleshooting

    With a quick search I found this link on the Medela site:

    Someone on here said you could rent from some Babies R Us stores, but I've never heard...

    Re: Pump in style troubleshooting

    Is there a place you can rent a hospital grade pump, even for a short time? I would think that it would help to see if you have the same problem with that pump. If you're pumping right after a...
  8. Re: decreasing pumping/supplementation

    Is there a car adaptor plug for the Symphony? I'm not sure. I know the Symphony I rented had a battery pack, because I used it when out at a class once. It seems like the PISA is not working for...

    Re: Pumping at work

    I see this as resourceful, so good for you! You may just have to try to find other times, like maddieb mentions above (is during your commute possible if you have one?). I've found that a...

    Re: Are you STILL breastfeeding?

    I think we've all had these interactions. Breastfeeding has taught me so much about our culture, especially how little breastfeeding is understood or even considered a part of life. To be honest,...

    Re: back to work!

    I pump in the car -- if you have a commute it's worth it. It might save your having to get up so early to pump in the morning at least -- or you can still get up early and squeeze in an extra pump. ...
  12. Re: Exclusive pumping feeling discouraged

    Is there any way the tongue tie could be remedied at this point and possibly getting baby back to breast? Since you said he comfort nurses sometimes, there may be hope for getting him to breast. ...

    Re: back to work!

    I agree...pumping 2x is likely going to affect your supply. I am away from baby from 6:00 a.m. to around 4:00 p.m. (10 hours) and I pump 4 times, about every 2.5 hours. I see you're in VA and we...
  14. Re: Help: Baby feeds ONLY lying down!

    I don't have any advice, but I have sympathy. My son just started nursing only when lying down on the right side. I posted about it on here recently. So I have it a little easier in that he'll...
  15. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    I asked the doc to check his ears at his well visit. I think he forgot my request but checked his ears with everything else and didn't mention anything. I would think football hold would be fine for...
  16. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    Thanks for the reply! Well, he's always been less interested in the right side, and has occasionally refused it, but not every time. I don't think it's just distractedness (although that doesn't...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    I think that's a personal decision and you can discuss with your doctor. I got my son the first of his two doses of flu shot even though it's late in the season. VA has been hard-hit with the flu...
  18. Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    I'm writing this with the realization that 1. Nursing is overall going well, and 2. I realize that I can successfully breastfeed with one breast. So I guess I'm more venting and looking for anyone...
  19. Re: Thoughts & experiences to share?

    I have flat nipples and have nursed both babies without a nipple shield. Tried one and couldn't make it work. I have had difficult times with latch with both kids but was/am able to work through it....

    Re: Cereal Confusion

    My pediatrician actually told us to start with veggies this time around. Different one than with my daughter. We are vegetarian and I was worried about my daughter's iron levels. She had her cord cut...

    Re: Cereal Confusion

    I did not give either of my kids rice cereal as their first foods, and never really gave my daughter grains until a little later in the process (closer to 1 I think -- can't remember) when I mixed...

    Re: assumption

    I think that is a tough question to answer -- it depends on how frequently you're pumping, what type of pump you have, whether it's working properly, how long you are pumping at a time, where you are...

    Re: pacifiers=no feeding cues?

    I have used pacifiers with both babies for somewhat different reasons. My first got one in the hospital and never seemed to have trouble switching from breast, bottle and pacifier, so I left well...
  24. Re: little weight gain 6 1/2 month old 14.7 lbs

    My son was born at 8 lbs, 7 oz, so smaller than yours. But he lost about 12% of birth weight in the first few days and I was asked to supplement for 24 hours. I talked to a lactation consultant...

    Re: assumption

    I think I mentioned this on here recently, but with my first I built up a freezer stash for not really a good reason. This time I avoided pumping so much (other than to increase supply on one side...
