    Re: Pressure to stop

    Congrats for BF this long already mama! I'm so sorry that you have to be around this kind of negativity regarding BF. But, really, they are rude IMO for pushing their agenda and their negative...
  2. Re: BF and Baby Blood Sugar After Birth

    Just wanted to also add that a mother with GD isn't the only condition under which a baby is at risk for hypoglycemia. Mothers with glucose intolerance (high blood sugar but not full-fledged GD) can...

    Re: "hovering" at the breast

    I think I know what you're talking about, and my son did it occasionally until he was about a year old. I never could figure out what it meant. It was the strangest thing because I knew he was hungry...
  4. Re: BF and Baby Blood Sugar After Birth

    I guess your long info quote didn't get transferred here..... but I really have to take issue with some of the statements regarding the low blood sugar, that it cannot cause brain damage, that there...

    Re: I want to scream

    This sounds like it's getting to the point where you should go home "sick" if you can. You need to take care of yourself! :hug

    Re: BLS and Purees, can I do both?

    We did purees as well as finger foods. It worked fine. DS loved both. People eat both from utensils and with their hands, so I don't see the problem with it.
  7. Re: Almost 5 weeks and unhappy after BF

    Welcome! Congrats on your new LO. I have two questions: 1. Are you reading Babywise? The part about trying to get her to remain awake for some activity after feeding sounds suspiciously like the...
  8. Re: Frequency of feedings at 2 months +

    I had the exact same question as you when my LO was that age. All I knew was that he was supposed to nurse at least every 2-3 hrs as a newborn but once he turned 3-4 months I had no idea how things...

    Re: Hormone tests before birth

    After birth, hormones are just as unpredictable and constantly changing for the first few weeks and even months. And hormones are further influenced by how much you're breastfeeding. Since testing...

    Re: Hormone tests before birth

    Re: Hormone tests before birth

    Congrats on wanting to give BF another try! In my opinion, the BEST thing you can do to ensure a successful BF experience this time around, no matter WHAT the problems were the first time, is to...
  12. Re: Bf'ing on Demand: Such a thing as "too often"?

    You have gotten great advice so far, I just wanted to share my experience which was that my LO (exclusively breastfed) nursed every 1.5 hrs during the day from 6 wks-4 months old, at which time he...

    Re: Is it too late for me?

    This is so awesome mama! :clap You are SOOOOO lucky that your LO is latching on and nursing so well after not nursing and being on bottles for a week. That is HUGE. And the fact that you're leaking...

    How's it going mama? I reread your most recent post and also wanted to ask what you mean when you say "nothing seems to be working"? What have you tried? Just wanted to reiterate that getting your...

    Re: Newbie needing major advice

    Yes, it's entirely possible to increase your supply, in most cases, when your LO is only 4 weeks old. How often are you pumping? How often is baby nursing?
  16. Re: How much breastmilk vs. formula ?

    :clap Wonderful! As long as you are still making some milk, and you want to try to continue, go for it! Many mamas find that their LO's nurse best, or that they will only nurse, while asleep or half...
  17. Re: How much breastmilk vs. formula ?

    I would definitely try to get a hand pump and give that a try. It works for some, and not for others, especially when your supply is low, as pp have said. And if it allows you to keep a small milk...

    Re: don't want to give up

    :ita:ita don't even think about giving up mama! I agree with everyone else that this really sounds like thrush and you will probably feel a lot better once you are on treatment.

    Re: Needing a little reassurance

    My son was exactly the same way in the beginning (he's 28 months now and just recently weaned!). He definitely had his days and nights mixed up for the first six weeks or so. He slept most of the day...

    My pedi really takes into consideration the size of the parents and other family members. My LO was always on the large end of the charts but so is every other baby in our families. Therefore my pedi...

    Re: Is this hopeless?

    I'm still not clear - where are you at in the whole process of trying to get your supply up? Have you been on meds before (reglan or dom)? Did your supply seem fine before she started fussing at the...

    This sounds even more like reflux than your other post does..... PLEASE ask your new doc for a trial of GERD meds!!!! Like pp said, many other babies have been put on meds for FAR less symptoms! I...

    Re: Is this hopeless?

    Take a deep breath mama. Five weeks old is so young, and your supply is still being established, so YES it is entirely possible to increase your supply at this point. And :angrypin to the LC who told...
