  1. Re: Looking to vent and get some support

    I am awfully late to this party but my life is insane. I hope you come back to read this. DJ's mom is right. My daughter was 7 weeks early and it took me over 2 months to get her to even latch once...

    Re: Exhausted and very frustrated

    Hi Mandy! I've been brought in because I had a similar experience when my daughter was born 7 years ago. She was born at 33 weeks, after 2 weeks of magnesium, severe bleeding, 3 blood transfusions,...
  3. Re: Preemie Home and Thriving - Transition to EBF?

    This right here. It can be done. We need to be patient with preemies. They aren't meant to be in the world yet. I hope you are keeping at it. It's not easy but it's so worth it!

    Re: New momma with question

    Congrats on your baby! Mommal gave you some great advice, so I thought I would offer a positive story. My daughter was born at 33 weeks, to a similar situation. I was in the hospital and on bed rest...
  5. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    If your baby will latch and is gaining well it might be time to go for it. Pick a day when you won't have anything to do and you can dedicate to laying in bed all day. And just toss the bottles....
  6. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    The crazy part is she latched for the very first time ever on her due date. I cried. I won't lie though, it took another month before I could toss the bottles and another two months after that to get...

    Re: What do i tell people?

    I find sarcasm shuts stupid people up. "I appreciate your concern for my nipples, but they've been bitten before and I'm okay" and add a little wink. Or something like "they get teeth? Wow I had no...
  8. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your baby! My daughter was born at 33 weeks and my LC kept telling me to try, but to not expect any major results until it was her due date. Remember your baby is...

    Re: Colostrum in formula?

    Why are you giving formula? Is baby not latching? How old? Colostrum should be enough for the baby at this point, I wouldn't get into pumping because it's a slippery slope. It can cause over...
  10. Re: Newborn eats till he pukes but wants more

    Three things I'm thinking. 1. He's confusing sensations of an upset tummy with being hungry. 2. He wants to comfort nurse and hasn't quite figured out how to do it without milk flow. 3. You have an...

    Re: Sensitive gag reflex?

    My son has a crazy gag reflex also. And while he doesn't throw up as easily now, phlegm still makes him puke. But it does get better.

    Re: Milk blister/bleb

    I still squeeze it out almost daily to not let it get blocked up again. But it took months for me to get it open to begin with. Once it did, I made sure it didn't close back up. Have you been able to...

    Re: Violent nursing

    I answered this post but guess it never registered.

    For those of you not on Facebook (Shelly) D head butted me right in the bridge of my nose. I was sure it was broken. It still hurts 14 hours...

    Re: Violent nursing

    I think it would be worse if I wasn't working because he would be asking all day long. He grabs at my face and when I cover it he flips out. Trouble is, the worst is at night and I just can't handle...

    Re: Violent nursing

    Thanks for responding. He does know some signs and many words. But very basic communication. I think weaning him would be extremely traumatic right now. He doesn't give up easily and isn't redirected...

    Violent nursing

    I'm at a tough spot in my nursing relationship with D. It has been escalating for some time. He just turned 2 and is a violent nurser. He has never had a great latch but now it is downright painful....

    Re: Cholesterol Medication

    My cholesterol goes down when I am nursing. My doctors will not put me on anything until I am done bearing children and nursing. You can supplement with Niacin. How high is your cholesterol? Are you...
  18. Re: Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone?

    I have to nurse my son - even now that he's 2 - before changing his diaper. You will figure it out. You have a passionate baby, which will be a really good thing when you have breastfeeding under...
  19. Re: Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone?

    I'm not really sure what you're asking, but here is my advice. Bag the schedule and nurse on demand. Don't wake her for feedings, just let her wake naturally and give you her cues for hunger. It...
  20. Re: My preemie is breastfeeding-how do I stop pumping?

    I say see how you feel. If you find yourself uncomfortable then pump just a bit to relieve the pressure. But I will say that a preemie mom who responds well to a pump often finds they have over...

    Re: Question about pumping volume

    Pumping sucks for sure. Do you need to pump? Some moms don't respond well to pumping and have to find optimal conditions. Like a certain brand of pump, the right horn size, the perfect setting...

    Re: Question about pumping volume

    If you are pumping until the flow slows considerably or stops then you are getting hind milk. But keep in mind that all milk has nutrition and unless you have a serious oversupply problem I would not...

    Re: cold turkey??? 19 months

    I'm not sure you can be set back when you are saying how traumatic it was. If he only nurses at night then limit it. Nurse him for only 10 minutes and then daddy takes him. Or cut one of the...

    Re: cold turkey??? 19 months

    The advice is cold turkey is cruel for a child that finds comfort in it. If you want to wean, the gentle and living approach would be by dropping sessions. Start with an easy one, like in the middle...

    Re: Found a lump?!

    It has been my understanding that a mammo doesn't give specifics at all. That it's meant to give an overall picture and a sono gives a clear picture of a specific lump.
