    Re: need help please

    Yes, if you are BF and trying to increase your supply, feed baby on the breast and then immediatetly pump for 10-15 mins afterwards. This will let you body know that the "baby" is demanding more...
  3. Re: Low supply. Help please...I'll do whatever it takes!

    I've had to pump a lot too and I think that 1/4 to 1oz every two hours at that age is great. That is after feeding him too right? At that age he is probably only taking a couple of ounces per...

    Re: let down - how do you know?

    I have nursed both my babies for four months and never felt a let down with either. I think some women just don't feel them and for others it can be quite painful.

    I use Vanilla soy for my son and he loves it. I like it too. None of us are big cow's milk drinkers and soy has a lot of health benefits. HTH!@

    Re: From 2 naps to one

    I think that the "average" kid starts to outgrow it about 12 months (some a little earlier, some a little later). At about one year, my son started not being able to take a good afternoon nap, and...

    Re: Is it possible?

    My supply issues are mainly because of problems at the beginning. With my son, he slept for four weeks and could not be roused enough (even by a LC helping me) to eat well and stimulate my supply. ...

    Is it possible?

    I have a four month old DD and a freezer full of EBM. I have had lots of battles with nursing and am so happy that I made it this far. I am in the process of weaning for many reasons. Mainly...

    I just posted the same reply on another post. Probiotics are good for mommy and baby while taking antibiotics or when dealing with tummy problems. It is the same kind of cultures that are in...

    Re: Overweight baby...

    Please don't worry about your baby being big. My DS was 29 pounds at 1 year (95%). You cannot imagine the kind of comments that I got about feeding him too much. My doc was never concerned. DH...

    Re: how much awake time?

    At that age my DD was only able to stay awake for about 45min-1hour (this included her feeding time). Now at 14 weeks she can only stay awake about 1.35-1.45. My son couldn't make it two hours...

    Re: too much milk? baby vomiting

    Maybe at the times when the left breast feels engorged, pump just enough for the nighttime bottle. Eventually your breasts will adapt to the change in demand. It's great that you have an abundance...

    Re: too much milk? baby vomiting

    Hi, when you say that Lo is vomiting, do you mean emptying all of the stomach or just lots of spitup? As a mom to a baby with reflux, I deal with loads of spit up during and after EVERY feeding. I...
  20. Re: 9 week old sensitive to environmental changes?

    My 12 week old is very sensitive to change. My first child was so flexible, but DD needs stability and would be happy to stay home every day. She likes things to be predictable and cries when they...

    Re: Poopy problems

    I believe Zantac can cause constipation. I just replied to another post about giving prilosec instead of Zantac. My Lo would not even swallow the zantac. We switched to Prilosec (which works...
  24. Re: zantac for reflux - DD straining evry hour for poop

    Yes, I think it's common for some of the reflux meds to cause hard stools. Also rice cereal can cause constipation in addition to the meds. My DD is on prilosec and so far has not been constipated....
