    Re: need help! jaundiced 8 day old...

    I can't remember exactly how many wets/dirty diapers are the norm for a newborn, but if you're meeting the recommendations, you're probably OK in that regard. My DD also had jaundice. I can't...

    Re: Does it get better?

    They're all different, but your baby sounds like mine. She actually slept pretty well for the first three months, and then after that she started having so much trouble that she started sleepign...

    Re: My pump is so LOUD!

    Someone in my office was pumping at the same time I was and I was relieved that when I walked by her office door I could hear the pump, but it was nowhere near as loud as I imagined it was when I was...

    Re: Question about handling EBM.

    In my experience, frozen milk tends to go bad really fast, like within a couple of hours. I read the reason for it once and can't remember all the details, just that the anitbodies or whatever that...
  5. Re: Excedrin- Need answer fast! Anyone online?

    I get terrible migraines too and asked the Dr. about excedrin. They said it was OK and not to worry about it. The amount of aspirin that makes its way to the baby is so minimal it's not a risk. ...

    Re: What purpose do those membranes serve?

    I'm not a rocket scientist or anything, but from the distant memories I have of physics class, you need a tight seal to form a vacuum, which is how the suction happens. The membrane forms the seal...

    Re: lots of questions...6 week old

    "Cluster feeding" (when they eat more frequently or even constantly) is really common when they're that young, especially in the evenings when most moms' supply is lowest. If you can stand it, you...

    Re: Help! Baby Broke out in Hives!

    It could be something he came in contact with. My daughter got hives all over her face when my in-law's dog licked her. At first I was in a panic because she'd had raspberries for the first time...

    Re: need some advice and encouragment

    I think it's pretty much a universal that a baby that young will suck on anything you put in his mouth, which is why even on a full tummy they'll keep eating from a bottle if it's there. My DD...

    Re: Spicy food/ pump & dump

    Has your baby had a problem with spicy food before? If not, I wouldn't dump a drop! I ate everything and my baby never had a problem, except that early on I noticed that onions gave her the toots. ...

    Re: Hiccups?

    My baby had hiccups a lot before she was born and still gets them a lot now (she's 12 Mos). They're not as frequent as they used to be, though. I don't know if you can do anything but wait it out. ...

    Re: Won't Take Bottle!

    Mine was the same way at that age. After a while I realilzed that she didn't like frozen milk and if I only gave her fresh in the bottle she would take it. I did that for a few weeks after I went...

    My DD was 5 months when I went back to work 3 days a week. I was able to get a good freezer stash ahead of time, which helped me feel a little better and not worry so much when I couldn't get enough...

    Daughter doesn't like cow's milk

    She just turned 1 and I'm hoping to get her used to drinking cow's milk because I'm SICK of pumping at work. At first she seemed to like it OK, but now no luck. She drinks juice so I'm not worried...
  19. Re: 6 days old - Will it calm down eventually?!

    Man do I know where you're coming from! Obviously if you really start to feel bad, talk to your doctor or someone else if you think you might need to be screened for post-partum depression, but what...

    Re: Stinky Poop!

    I think it does stink, it's just your perception of whether it's a bad stink or not. For instance, I didn't mind (still don't, really) my 12 MO's poop smell, but all along, it's made my husband gag...

    Well, no good ideas here other than what you've already tried. FWIW, my baby never slept all that well even with a full tummy, so even if you do get the extra milk into her, there's no guarantee...

    Well, I was lucky in that I didn't go back to work til my DD was 5 months. I was pumping 3 times per day then, and getting more than she would eat.

    That's funny (though it wasn't at the time, I'm sure!). My boss used to nurse her kids & I noticed she crossed her arms a lot. I always thought she was thinking hard about something. Til I started...
