    Re: Demand feeding, how does it work?

    Thank you all for your replies. It just gets so confusing. If she spaces out her feeds, then I don't really block feed I just do single side feeding, but when she feeds close together or only snacks...

    Re: Demand feeding, how does it work?

    I think that my supply is ok as long as she nurses regularly. I don't know how to tell anymore, I always just seem to have unlimited milk which flows very fast no matter what I do, but we cope now....

  19. Re: Is 5 nursing sessions in 24hr okay for 8 month old?

    Have you tried nursing her in a carrier? If it has a hood, she should be less distracted. How was nursing when she was younger? When did it change? What is your supply like and what is your let down...
  20. Re: Breast aversion...only nurses while asleep

    It took a while for my baby to get used to the Ergo, but ow she won't nurse any other way during the day! I would give her more time to get used to it. I know how rejected breast refusal makes you...

    Re: Really stuffy nose

    I really hope that you are right! She has been choking a lot whilst nursing today and has not nursed as frequently, just really scared about it getting out of control again!
