  1. Re: 12 wks - strike? spurt? or something else?

    Hang in there Mama. Nursing strikes are really hard to bear. One basically ended bfing my first child, but I made it through another with my second child. Some comments - regarding the dairy, I am...

    Re: Ouch!

    :hug to you both! I haven't been through this yet as LO doesn't have teeth yet. In the meantime, I found Mother's Mates to be really soothing when I had sore nipples. They are breast pads that are...
  3. Re: only 6 months - weaning or strike?? Help!

    Thanks ladies for the encouragement, especially Jackyboy for the hugs! I'm also suspecting teething is a problem, but there is no indication of a tooth coming soon, so if it is due to that, we could...

    Re: blood in her stools!

    Of course there might be a problem with blood vessels if your child is constipated, but according to the infant allergist my sister-in-law waited 5 months to see, blood in stools is almost always due...
  5. Re: only 6 months - weaning or strike?? Help!

    Thanks for the advice on biting, Lisa. I have been doing that as well, though right now I'm just grinning and bearing it, just to keep him on the breast and figure I'll work on it again once he's...
  6. only 6 months - weaning or strike?? Help!

    My little guy is only 6.5 months but he's refusing the breast and I'm not sure if he's weaning or quasi-striking :cry. My first child went on stike at 5.5 months and although I did everything I...
  7. Re: lopsidedness-how to avoid, limit this. hope not tmi :(

    With my first child, I had an oversupply, so I defaulted to single side feeding for my new baby. But once he started sleeping through the night (oh thank you, thank you baby!!!) my supply started...
  8. Re: lopsidedness-how to avoid, limit this. hope not tmi :(

    Not sure I can help much, but I can commiserate. Not only am I very lopsided, but both are just HUGE. I've always been busty, but breastfeeding has pushed me from being very big to being...

    Re: possibly overfeeding?

    My fourth month son old gets really sucky when he's tired. I could give him the breast when he starts rooting, but I'm paranoid about sleep issues because my first child (daughter) didn't sleep...
  10. Re: One side, both sides, cluster block -- help!

    Hi there. Yup, I agree with the other Mums. My little guy can't get a latch at all if he has a burp inside. You could try expressing a bit before putting him on to reduce the amount of gulping and...

    Re: Cow's milk allergy vs oversupply

    Hey Ladies, sorry I've been MIA for a while. Sounds like Cammylou and I have had similar experiences, and Mooma's joining the club. Rice Dream ice cream is pretty good, and if you can find rice...

    Re: How do you feed?

    Hi,
    I have always been prone to oversupply, so I feed on one side per feeding. But lately, I seem to be losing supply on one side, so I tried switching to both sides. Suddenly, LO had major gas,...

    Re: constipated? Low volume, long time...

    Thanks for the feedback, Mums. Just thought I'd update you. Finally after 9 days, just as I was about to put him in his carseat to take to the Dr's, the floodgates opened. Zoiks! I took him to...

    Re: Cow's milk allergy vs oversupply

    Hi there - wow, I had exactly the same thing as you - both oversupply and blood in the stools, however, the blood in the stools is definitely from an allergy. My sister in law saw a pediatric...

    Re: constipated? Low volume, long time...

    Thanks for the info about your child having not many and not much poop - that's just the kind of feedback I was hoping to hear. I did read that some kids are just really efficient at digesting BM...

    constipated? Low volume, long time...

    My 4 month old son has only pooped once in the last 15 days. Seven days ago he had one movement that was only moderate in volume. It was soft (even wet) and a good colour, but certainly wasn't...
