  1. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Well, today was a little rough (all the over stimulation of going to the Inlaws) I fear I basically forced him to take a 2oz bottle tonight when he really just wanted to go to sleep on the breast...

    Re: Vasoplasm?

    When using shields I believe that since they can interfere with milk transfer some and affect the way the stimulation of the breast happens they can cause milk supply to diminish over time so that is...
  3. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to feed very often. Especially now that he seems able to eat more quickly.
    But something else seems to be going on so he is only willing to take small amounts at a...
  4. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    I've always fed fairly often during the day because it always seemed that I didn't have much storage capacity and tend to start feeling full by 2 hours and engorged by 3. Overnight he might go 3-4...

    Re: Oversupply, OALD, allergy?

    If he is able to nurse and not in pain and not sick, it probably isn't anything to be overly concerned about.
    I've never had to deal with any over supply or OALD so hopefully some of the mom's who...

    Re: Pumping and storage question

    I'm really not sure how long milk that has been refrigerated and then re-warmed is good for even if it was refrigerated right away after pumping so I'm not sure on that answer. I've usually tried...

    Re: Hygeia vs. Medela PISA pump

    Where are you? I think you might want to take into account the accessibility of pump parts in choosing the brand pump. I think Hygeia and Avent are British brands so it may be harder to get spare...

    Re: Hygeia vs. Medela PISA pump

    There can be such a huge difference between models even within one brand.
    The Medela symphony is one of the hospital grade pumps while the PISA is a personal use pump though considered to be a very...

    Re: Returned to school, feeling lost.

    Talk to a teacher or supervisor and let them know you need to work your schedule somehow to let you pump more. (pumping breaks need not be that long.) If there are any times in the day where you...

  13. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Gave in and let DH give DS Some expressed milk via bottle today.

    Feeling very disappointed that I don't think I'm going to get any EBF time without dealing with worry about weight gain and all the...
  14. Re: Effect on supply when baby sleeps longer

    As mamamia says,
    But I'm going to re-iterate one more thing, demand feeding is not JUST when baby feels the need but also when mom feels full she may offer to feed before baby cues. IT IS OK for...

    Re: Returned to school, feeling lost.

    Can you talk to your supervisors? You really do need to take care of yourself (drink water, use the rest room and pump.) You don't have to pump for very long necessarily (ten minutes will even make...

    Re: Pumping and storage question

    I don't really have a definitive answer for you.
    Why not refrigerate the second 100 ml bottle that you don't expect to use at the next feeding right away instead of leaving it out? If not planning...
  18. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Well I've ordered some Vitamin D for me and D drops and Iron Drops for him.
    I live in a location where the sun is pretty intense but I don't spend that much time unprotected out in the sun lately...
  19. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    For the Week before the weight gain was again only about 2.2 oz for the week. And I'd been having trouble getting much supplement into him. Granted a trip to the Inlaws did happen that week which...
  20. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    He is 5 1/2 months and was full term.
    I was anemic after delivery and was put on Iron supplements myself. I don't know what my Iron levels were like pre-delivery but the Dr never said anything...
  21. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Well, went without supplements for over a week and weight gain is NOT good. Only 2.2 oz for the week. So he is still gaining but way slow.
    This is really frustrating though because there is still...

    Re: Nipple pain, need help!!

    Can you see an IBCLC http://www.ilca.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3901

    If you are in such pain, latch is obviously NOT fine. Has baby been checked for tongue/lip ties?

    Re: Inconsistent Feeds

    If you are only nursing 8 times a day, well the first thing I would say to do to maybe get off the supplements is to nurse WAY more often.
    Nursing is for way more than just food.
    Nursing is for...
