    Re: Pumping no milk....

    It is possible that he might not take a bottle at all during that time period. Some babies "reverse cycle" and nurse frequently when they are with their mothers rather than taking a lot of milk at...

    Re: Not sure what to do....

    It's not necessary to feed solids this early. The AAP recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months before introducing solids.
  3. Re: Finger Foods...what age, successfully?

    We never did baby food. By around 8-9 months dd was able to feed herself. She didn't eat much, only a few bites. Solids are just for practice for the first year so it's not a big deal if they...

    Re: 7 week old, 4 feedings a day?

    Have you tried offering the breast, even if he seems content? It's a good idea to offer before he gets too upset. He definitely does need to nurse more than 4 times a day. At 7 weeks, I would wake...
  5. Re: 6 months and 13 Lbs anyone else have a small baby?

    I had a small baby and now she is a small toddler. I think at around 6 months she might have been 14lbs. You said he drinks 20 ounces in 14 hours and I'm assuming he nurses in addition to the...

    Re: starting solids now it's too early?

    Like the previous posters mentioned, there is no need for solids before 6 months and until age one they are just for practice.

    Also, it sounds like your baby is doing great with his weight gain! ...

    Re: ? about new pumping law

    Thanks so much! I had searched for info before but I am glad to have the actual text of the law. And it looks like it is effective immediately but the enforcement is not effective yet.

    Re: time for pumping

    I taught before dd was born. Though I never returned to work, I know pumping would be very hard, especially because I was alone with my preschoolers all day with nobody else to watch them. Could...

    I'm not a working mom, but my sister is pregnant and planning on returning to work part time after the baby is born. Does anyone know if the new law requiring employers to allow moms to pump is...

    Re: Help. Doc says underweight.

    Wow! Everyone's babies are huge compared to mine. She's maybe about 20lbs at 21 months and definitely went way down on the percentiles. Her last "official" weigh in was at her 18 month appt and she...
  11. Re: Need help!...getting frustated with milk supply issues

    Hi! I think I can answer a few of your questions.

    1. It's normal for babies to go a long time without a bowel movement after 6 weeks. Some babies go 2 weeks without a soiled diaper! Does she...

    Re: she fell off the charts...

    My ped doesn't use the charts (only dd's actual growth curve) but she was 16lbs and 29 in at 1 yr check up. At 18 months she was 18lbs and 31 inches. So I'm sure that's not on the chart but still...

    Re: 9 month old getting enough BM

    It's normal for your breasts to feel "empty" but they really are not! Also leaking is not an indicator of supply. Does she drink a lot of other liquids? If she doesn't drink a lot of other fluids...

    Re: "breastfeeding jaundice"?

    Does she have a local LLL? That would be a good first step.

    Re: The need to pump???

    Also remember that your milk is produced on supply and demand. So as long as you are nursing frequently you do not need to pump to keep your supply up.

    Re: The need to pump???

    Is there a reason you are pumping? Generally pumping is only needed if you are away from your baby. So if you aren't missing a feeding then it is fine to just nurse!

    Re: Nipple shield

    I used a nipple shield for 5 months total. Then my dd just outgrew the need for it and never looked back. It didn't hurt my supply but it's important to keep an eye on wet diapers to be sure. You...

    Re: Fear about breastfeeding

    The previous poster is correct. Babies in general will mess up your sex life. Have you considered attending a LLL meeting in real life? I think that if you meet other mothers in person who nurse...
  21. Re: how much oz need for an 17 day baby?

    Are you sure that your little one isn't getting enough milk? How are wet diapers? Newborns often nurse frequently so that is not a sign of low supply. As far as formula goes, that question would...

    Re: Dear God, she won't stop feeding....

    Don't worry! That's completely normal. She's just trying to build up your supply. It's very normal for a newborn to want to nurse every half hour. But it will get better so hang in there!!

    Every woman is different so even if you nurse frequently you could still get your period back. I got mine back at 7 months post partum too. She didn't eat solids until closer to a year but it still...

    Re: Baby needs to gain weight

    To the OP:

    It sounds like your lo is doing well. I don't think my lo hit 17lbs until close to 15 months and she's perfectly healthy. A lot of babies don't stay on the same curve but are still a...
  25. Re: Help - I'm I too quick to feed her?

    Is she in your bed or in your room? If she's not fully awake I wouldn't wake her.
    But if she's in your room or bed then you can see if she's awake or not. That's why we never used our crib since...
