  1. Re: Another blip on our path back to EBF :(

    An overall positive update :)

    LO has now gained 10oz after being stuck around the 8lb mark for nearly 4 weeks. I'm still supplementing with formula (200-300ml/7-10oz per day) via a Lact-Aid to get...
  2. Re: Another blip on our path back to EBF :(

    Update: I weighed him yesterday and he showed no gain since Friday. I wanted to get a referral to a paediatrician (I'm in the UK so you need your doctor to initiate this for you unless you go for...
  3. Re: Another blip on our path back to EBF :(

    I pumped after BF and giving the formula last night, and will try again today but it's already shaping up to be a repeat of yesterday :(

    My pump is a hospital grade rental from Ameda.

    I'm...
  4. Another blip on our path back to EBF :(

    My LO, now 7.5 weeks, has not gained any weight in the last 3 weeks according to the scales at my doctor's surgery. My own scales (same brand, different model) indicate a 2oz gain - not much better....

    Re: One months old, low weight gain

    Hi there

    I'm in the UK too and had a very similar rough start to BF, and little support from the hospital even after being readmitted on day 5 for a 10% weight loss. My son had latching problems...

    Re: Do nipples "toughen up"?

    I think it was a bleb. The photo on the Kellymom page really helped diagnose it. I stopped BF on that side for a couple of days, used heat and pumping to clear it. My LO had rubbed the tip of that...

    Re: Do nipples "toughen up"?

    I'd had clogged ducts a few weeks back on the other side, but not with this pain. They disappeared quickly with heat, massage and even quicker when I put LO to feed on that side (we were just...
  8. Re: Allowing baby to STTN?

    Hi lllmeg

    Here is the info you asked about. Our nursing issues in the first couple of weeks were mainly due to a TT which had not been noticed by the midwives or pediatrician at the hospital even...

    Re: Do nipples "toughen up"?

    We have experimented with positions and semi-reclined works best or the cradle hold. He hates the football hold although that's all I could manage after my c-section. We have limited success with...

    Do nipples "toughen up"?

    Having suffered with cracks and bleeding from week 1 of BF and having forced myself to drop the nipple shields, we now appear to be turning a corner. My LO is nealy 5 weeks old and had a TT diagnosed...
  11. STTN and supply (moved from 'Allowing baby to STTN?')

    I'd been wondering the same thing. I'm getting my 4 week old back into EBF after a rough patch (lots of nipple pain, baby is a sleepy feeder and was not gaining weight well) and have been bringing...
  12. Re: Cranial osteopathy, nipple trauma, low pumping output :(

    Well I'm happy to report that things are getting better here :)

    Yesterday I got one totally pain-free latch! I had to really work on not tensing up as I positioned him, but I left him to it and he...
  13. Re: Cranial osteopathy, nipple trauma, low pumping output :(

    Thanks all for your supportive replies.

    blue2000, I'm worried that this could escalate beyond the "baby blues" and am trying to keep an eye on things. I had a bout of depression while at college...
  14. Cranial osteopathy, nipple trauma, low pumping output :(

    Hi all, this is my first post here. I'm mum to a 3 wk old son, first baby, and finding things incredibly tough physically and emotionally.*

    The birth was induced and ended in an emergency...
