  1. How average weight gain is determined

    I just want to be sure that I'm interpreting Kellymom correctly where the website says to calculate weight gain from baby's lowest known weight. This means that when I'm calculating how much weight...

    Plugged duct?

    I think I have a plugged duct... I have a sore red spot on one side of one breast, and it looks like googled pics of "plugged ducts." So, for the past 24 hours I've done what Kellymom.com...
  3. Re: Can a comfortable latch still be "bad?"

    Thanks again. So, I now have in my possession a brand new hospital grade Hygeia pump (the "EnDear") and tried to pump as often as I could today when my son wasn't already nursing. I stopped pumping...
  4. Re: Can a comfortable latch still be "bad?"

    Thanks Meg. Got an appointment this afternoon with my favorite LC I'd met with when my older son was little. Now I'm trying to choose a pump (which I just found out is covered by my insurance). What...
  5. Can a comfortable latch still be "bad?"

    I'm curious since my 3 week old LO has only gained an average of .7 oz per day in the past 14 days (same scale & conditions). His dirty diaper output is also lower than I'm comfortable with. So I'm...
  6. Re: 2.5-week old, breastfeeding challenges, would love suppo

    Hi mama. Congratulations on your new squish! Our LOs are close in age: my youngest son was born a day before your daughter, so like you I'm in the midst of trying to build my milk supply, nursing...

    Re: 3 days old...1 dirty diaper...ok?

    Thank you, Meg. So I guess if I have enough for him at 6 weeks I can start to relax at that point?

    To update, LO is 13 days old today and weighed 8 lbs 15 oz (his birth weight was 9 lbs). He...

    Re: 3 days old...1 dirty diaper...ok?

    Thanks, Meg. DS actually had 3 dirty diapers today! I could cry with gratitude for each one. I agree that three days' gain is too small of a sample to be conclusive, but hopefully cautious optimism...

    Re: 3 days old...1 dirty diaper...ok?

    Mommal: sorry, somehow I missed your reply. Some of the poops are larger, but most are quarter sized...the one this morning was huge (filled up the whole newborn diaper), but the one he passed this...

    Re: 3 days old...1 dirty diaper...ok?

    Thanks so much, meg & others. Now DS is passing am average of 2 poops/24 hrs, which makes me very nervous bc all the LLL lit says babies should be passing 3 poops/day by 1 week of age...He's passing...

    Re: 3 days old...1 dirty diaper...ok?

    Omg. DS just unloaded a HUGE chocolate pudding dirty diaper. Sooo relieved. Not gonna lie: I cried. I'll still be cautious until I know he's gaining adequately. Speaking of which...at tomorrow's...

    Ok. Here we go again I guess. Before I completely freak out, DH thought I should also mention. ....he pooped right after he came out, too (on me, actually :) ), and one nurse said that "counted."...

    Just know that whatever discomfort you feel is shared by all of us, immigrant, visiting, or native. When it comes to breast feeding in public, especially toddlers, people have very strong feelings,...

    Re: Shirt pulling, gah!

    Thanks, mamas.... I really like the idea of teaching nursing "manners." Djsmom: what did you actually say to your son to teach the idea of "relationship?" Thanks!

    Shirt pulling, gah!

    My nearly 23 month old DD is a rambunctious shirt-puller! He yanks my shirt, reaches down, and grabs my boob, and if I am not in a good position to nurse him right away, he throws a fit and just...
  21. Re: help me with my toddler nursing please

    I am always afraid to post "what worked for us" stories because I don't want to jinx us, but so far what has worked for my nearly 22 month old was Jay Gordon's method and daddy putting him to bed,...
  22. Re: To Pump Wean or Not to Pump Wean? When were you ready?

    DS is almost 16 months now and I pump weaned at a year. I knew I was ready because I was starting to feel something akin to resentment about pumping at work every day, as bad as that may sound. I was...
