    Hello all,

    I am a SAHM and my daughter is 7 1/2 weeks old. Due to anatomy issues, she was bottlefed for a couple of days in the first week, then on the nipple shield. She was bottlefed again...

    Re: One breast or two... when to switch

    I don't know what IBCLC stands for. Nursing was only painful for the first 15 seconds for several days, but that was also while I had an oversupply of milk... I think she wasn't having to work as...

    Re: Nipple pain and latching issues

    I'm responding even though I'm far from an expert and we certainly are not problem free over here either.

    My daughter is 7 weeks old and when she was born she had a short tongue and a recessed...

    Re: One breast or two... when to switch

    I was concerned that if she was only eating 4 - 6 minutes on the 2nd side, she was getting too much foremilk. Is that not a valid concern?

    Re: One breast or two... when to switch

    I forgot to mention that she definitely likes to suck to soothe and had been sucking on her fist, trying to master the whole thumb thing.

    Skin to Skin - Day and Night?

    My daughter is 6 weeks old. For most feedings, I undress her down to the diaper to feed her. This used to be necessary to keep her awake, plus I just liked the bonding, but lately she has been...
