    Re: Please help the LC has confused me.

    Ouch! That latch sounds painful. Has your LO been checked for a tongue-tie? My DS had aTT which caused a bad latch and poor milk removal. Poor milk removal can lead to a low supply- maybe your LC is...
  3. Re: Dealing with (inevitable) BLS criticism

    It took DS quite a while to succeed in getting food in his mouth and swallowing it (around 10 months). MIL was very concerned, but since she has seen him eat "people food" and knows BLS works, she...

    Re: canker sores & nursing

    :hug. I hate canker sores. L-lysine is a natural amino-acid that treats canker sores really well. I use an ointment form (found it at our local health food store, but I think some grocery stores sell...

    Re: bras

    I convert my pretty bras to nursing bras. It's very simple but does involve some sewing. All you need are the bra clips, elastic, and thread to match your bra. If you live close to me, I'd do it for...

    Re: Thrush getting worse again.. ugh!

    Ouch! That pain is the worst :hug. We had an epic thrush battle and it is miserable and hard work to clear up. It sounds like you are doing most of the things we did :clap. A couple things to note:

    Re: Tongue Tied

    :ita That's what they told us to do after DS got clipped too. We also took him to a baby chiropractor which really helped. You're probably already doing this, but avoid those pacis...they reinforce...

    Good job pumping for your LO! Just my experience, but DS went thru a growth spurt around 5 mos (a little off of the "typical," but since when are babies typical :rolleyes:). I just nursed as much as...

    Yes. It was funny...kind of a win/loose situation. It helped with some of the initial soreness, but more breast tissue was dragged in, which led to more soreness...:lol I also tried lanolin because...

    Thanks so much ladies! I was leaning toward setting solids aside for a bit, but was worried I wasn't being patient enough. It's nice to have confirmation that we're doing it right.
