    Re: What to do?

    Thanks ladies!

    History: Around 7 weeks there was a day where he woke up, and when I went to let him eat he refused- turned his head and cried. I figured that maybe he wasn't hungry (although he...

    Re: What to do?

    Thank you for the kind words...
    I think that part of my problem is that I am about to send him to daycare, and I am so sad!

    I think I remain pretty calm when it comes to anything to do with him-...

    What to do?

    I have found much support here, and I thank everyone!

    I am sadly having to return to work on Monday. For the past month and a half I have been trying to get my LO back to nursing (not working so...
  4. Re: How many times/how long to increase supply?

    He has been on strike for a while now...the incident where he completely refused was almost 4 weeks ago. I try to give him the breast even when he isn't hungry and he kind of plays around with a sour...
  5. How many times/how long to increase supply?

    I am currently pumping to get my supply back up after my LO refused to nurse and we ended up bottle-feeding. He still isn't nursing, but I am working on that part.

    My question is this- I was told...

    Re: About to give up...

    I switched to the Breastflow bottle...it seems to be a much better choice for him.

    I didn't know that my supply was low, but I knew that my LO was hungry- he wasn't ever satisfied, and wasn't...

    Re: About to give up...

    Thanks!
    I had heard that as well...started to eat it today. I am also working on getting him to nurse before he goes down for his naps- when he is open to a little more to eat...we'll see!

    Re: About to give up...

    Thanks to everyone for their advice and encouragement!

    I rented a Medela Symphony pump from an LC. She is out of town, but we should be able to get together when she is back. She suggested that I...

    Re: Sleep habits

    My son is just like that- he is 2.5 mos. He is on a 4-hour schedule. He wakes up, eats, burps, plays, and then gets fussy because he is tired and ready to sleep again- this happens about an hour to 2...

    About to give up...

    I posted earlier that I felt my milk supply was low, and that my LO wouldn't nurse to help me get it back up. We have spent time trying to coax him back to the breast, but it hasn't worked very well-...

    Re: Pumping issues

    My guy fusses, and then starts to really cry if you don't hand him the pacifier after he eats...burping doesn't always distract him.

    I am going to try feeding him less and see what happens...and...

    Re: Pumping issues

    Thanks everyone :)

    My son is 10weeks. He started out great from day one as far as nursing...but like I said, I think the bottle made it an issue.
    I try to get him to latch on at each feeding-...

    Re: Pumping issues

    Thanks for the responses...

    I have tried to get him to nurse, but he will not. We have tried warm baths, nursing when sleepy, different positions, etc. He will latch on (albeit not a good latch),...

    Pumping issues

    I have had to pump for the past month or so- my LO decided one day he didn't want to nurse, which I think is due to the fact that he was given the bottle (so my husband could help with feedings). We...

    Poop!

    Since I started to supplement with formula, my 2 mo. old son has been pooping less. I know that it is normal for them to go a couple of days (I spoke to my doc about it when we had his checkup), but...

    Re: Baby keeps yanking, normal?

    When my son was nursing regularly he started to do the same thing- and this was at one month old. He would yank and yank, then pull back as far as he could and stretch me out...talk about painful!

    We found out that our son was extremely gassy- we tried Mylicon which helped with his tummy, but not the intestinal gas. We found some other homeopathic treatments that helped...he was able to sleep...

    Re: Milk supply drying up! Help!

    Thanks for your help! I am hoping that I can work something out...we'll get there (someday!)

    I have to say that I am glad he takes the bottle though- I know people who have had the opposite issue...

    Re: Milk supply drying up! Help!

    Ok-
    I tried to get him to nurse with skin on skin contact, and he screamed...he isn't latching on like he used to- I think it is due to the use of the bottle so much now.
    I am still getting him at...

    My son is just over 8 weeks now and I am running into trouble with breastfeeding. We had done so exclusively until about 3 weeks ago- my son had been fussing for hours and wouldn't nurse so I gave in...
