  1. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    I've looked more carefully and it's more of a red spot than streaks. So that confuses me further.
  2. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    After very little sleep (little guy was not doing so well) I seem to be doing better. I have not gotten engorged again. He nursed about every 2 hours and I tried to put him on that breast first,...
  3. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    I talked to my LC and she gave me some advice. She is hoping it's milk stasis rather than staph, and she said they probably won't test me for it. I don't feel a plug anywhere, but how else would I...
  4. Re: Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    I definitely am stopping the fenugreek. Sadly, I took two caplets today before fever started. I had been engorged and took a long walk, so thought the soreness was from that. I am a little upset...
  5. Need urgent help -- possible mastitis

    Back again with more problems -- just when I thought we were getting better.

    So I'm wondering if the bad latch has caused me mastitis. I don't think I have/had a plugged duct, but I do often get...
  6. Re: Posterior tongue tie, craniosacral therapy?

    I have taken my LO for craniosacral therapy at a chiropractor's office, where he also receives chiropractic adjustment. I also took him to a chiropractor who specializes in nursing, and she also...
  7. Re: slow flow, fast flow or just fussy?

    I do compressions, but sometimes that's when he tugs, so that's why I wasn't sure if I was making the situation worse. I try to not do them during fussy time too much now.

    We went to the...
  8. Re: slow flow, fast flow or just fussy?

    Thanks for that! You know, this a.m., after LO didn't nurse on one side very much during the night and it was pretty engorged/full, he didn't seem to have much problem with the flow. He may have...
  9. slow flow, fast flow or just fussy?

    I have posted recently about some nursing troubles with my little guy, who's baby #2. He's a month old today. My LC had me taking fenugreek because he was damaging me really badly on one side...
  10. Re: Newborn possibly eating to much?

    My baby is spitting up a lot, too -- well, it looks like a lot considering my daughter only spit up about 4 times in her entire babyhood. I think he might sometimes be overeating, although he...
  11. Re: Are there fenugreek guidelines/instructions?

    I haven't been pumping extra, mostly because I'm trying to heal my wounds and also because I haven't had time with his frequent nursing. Plus, with the difficulty latching, I can't really pump one...
  12. Are there fenugreek guidelines/instructions?

    I've been posting on here about my little man's bad latch and nursing. Getting him back to the "bad side" has involved taking fenugreek to increase the flow and supply on that side. Otherwise he...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    Okay, thank you! I will email the LC tomorrow -- I don't have much to report to her. He really has trouble latching on that one side, but I'm not sure any additional visits from her right now will...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    I have mentioned most of the issues to the IBCLC -- she told me to cut back on the fenugreek, so I'm trying to cut back a little each day. I did that once before and my supply didn't seem affected...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    Thanks again, Meg! The right side, which is a bit swollen still, is the more painful side. It doesn't seem to be swollen now, or at least not as much -- not as noticeable as last week. I would say...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    So things have been getting a little better since I last wrote. Little Man has started latching on the right side (bad side). It's sometimes a struggle to get a decent latch -- I'm not sure I could...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    Thanks, Meg! We did do two bottle feeds today (we already were aware of paced feeding -- we like to call it "making bottles annoying for baby"). I showed my husband the cup video, though, and we...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    Thanks for the advice. It is making me feel better to have someone to reach out to out there! I feel like the hydrating before a feed might work, because I think one of the many problems is that he...

    Re: Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    Milk did come in. Now I'm engorged and fearing plugged ducts due to the damage and scabbing! Poops and pees are good. We had weight gain and jaundice concerns (mild) from the pediatrician, so we...

    Baby #2 nursing terribly!

    I haven't even had a chance to write my birth announcement, and I'm writing because of the painful nursing going on with my son. I nursed him round the clock from birth, and everything seemed okay. ...

    Re: Pregnant and nursing

    I am one of the folks whose LO weaned herself while I was pregnant (she was about 2 years, 3 months) and it was actually quite a relief the way she did it. I encouraged her to keep with it, but when...
  23. Re: Urge to nurse more than toddler wants!

    My LO was gradually cutting back her nursing sessions, and I always felt bad, since I kept saying, "Are you SURE you don't want to nurse?" I felt like I wasn't ready to give it up, but didn't want...
  24. Re: How long did you keep your hospital grade rental?

    I had mine a long time -- around a year. It cost me way too much, but I needed one for home and one for work (used the rental at home). Around the year point, I realized it would have been cheaper...

    Re: Crying over spilled milk

    I had it happen a few times -- I cried a ton, and I cursed the pumps for being so top heavy!!
