    Weight Gain And Wet Diapers

    This is a two part issue, but possibly (maybe not?) related. Sorry in advance that this is so long!

    My son had his nine month checkup a couple of weeks ago and he had pretty much maintained his...

    Re: Nipple Pain

    Uggh...things are so much worse today.

    I think this may be caused by a bad latch and/or gnawing due to teething that I just didn't realize was happening. The pain is progressively worse and now I...

    Re: Should we go ahead and start BLW?

    Thanks everyone! We ended up waiting until our little guy was a full six months old and things are going great! He is eating like a pro. I'm actually surprised at how much he is getting in his...

    Should we go ahead and start BLW?

    Little man will be six months old on the 30th of this month. If we are going by weeks, he is almost 25 weeks old. He has been showing some signs that he is ready to start eating. He can sit up on...

    Re: Vitamins

    Ha ha! I know, I know. Having kids seven years apart throws me for a loop! It makes me feel like a first time mom all over again and I worry about everything.

    Vitamins

    Sooooo...vitamins. Yay? Nay?

    Baby is four months old and is breastfed only. We plan on doing baby led weaning once he starts to show signs that he is ready, but that probably won't be for...

    Re: Pumping Pain

    That's a good point, Karen. I'll have to pay more attention to that to see if it happens again.

    For now, the larger size shields seem to have done the trick. I've only been pumping for ten...

    Pumping Pain

    I pump on occasion, usually just one time per week, to maintain a small freezer stash in case of an emergency. I use a Medela Pump In Style Advanced electric pump with the standard 24mm breast...
  11. Re: Need some Advice/Support. Losing my mind.

    You are doing an amazing job! You should be patting yourself on the back for sticking with breastfeeding after a traumatic birth and what sounds like horrible advice and "help" in the hospital. You...

    Re: One Fussy Girl, One Happy Boy

    First of all, kudos to you for breastfeeding your twins! I'm sure that is no easy task.

    I'm sure others will chime in with some great suggestions soon, but what you described sounds like you may...

    Thank you both for your responses! We decided that we will bring him with us and I will nurse him in between procedures. We will bring a couple of bottles of pumped milk just in case we run into...
  14. Question About Upcoming Medical Procedure

    My son was born on May 30th and I need to have a medical procedure done on September 3rd, so he will be right at three months old. The procedure is Mohs surgery and it is to get rid of an area of...
  15. Re: Going away for a day: baby won't sleep or take bottle

    I would cancel the trip if you can. Some babies have a really tough time taking a bottle at first and then end up taking it with no problem, but I would definitely cancel it for now since she is so...
  16. Re: Unable to breastfeed due to meds...advice?

    I understand. I honestly was not trying to be prying, but like Mommal pointed out, a lot of times pediatricians/doctors/pharmacists err on the side of caution simply because they are not that...

    Re: Introducing rice cereal

    It isn't recommended to start solids before six months and even then the baby should be showing signs of readiness. Is your baby already sitting up unassisted and using her pincer grasp?

    Re: Pressure to Start Rice Cereal

    There is barely any nutritional value in rice cereal. If you think your daughter is ready to start experimenting with solids, you can give her whole foods like avocado, banana, sweet potato, or a...

    Re: Solids or Formula?

    Personally, I wouldn't do either one. It sounds like you are doing great. Was it just the one time that he acted hungry in the car on the way home or has this been happening regularly? If it is a...

    Re: Please Help!!!!

    First of all, you should be fine as far as your implants go. When I had mine done, I made it very clear to my surgeon that I still wanted to breastfeed in the future. He said that putting them...

    Re: Typical Work Day

    Do you have your own office or somewhere you could go to besides the pumping room? Perhaps you could set up your pump to be hands free so that you can eat and pump at the same time.
