  1. Babe is sleeping through the night and I have questions.

    My first child still doesn't STTN at almost 2 years, and while she was nursing she always fed 2-3 times per night, and then when I started to EP for her, I always woke up to pump at 2am.

    Now, I...

    Nursing babies with a URI

    Hi all, my kiddo has whatever URI my toddler had last week, and it isn't pretty. She's super congested which makes nursing really difficult for her, and she has a cough which has caused her to vomit...
  3. Re: 2nd time around, seeking opinions of more BTDT mamas.

    Oh, I do pump about twice a day for those five ounces; once in the morning and right before bedtime. My OS from last time was due to aggressive pumping for a NICU baby and then being told to...
  4. Re: 2nd time around, seeking opinions of more BTDT mamas.

    It's hard to say how many times she nurses in a day, since she cluster feeds twice daily (so lots of nursing time) but we probably hit about 8. She is just such a change from my experience with my...
  5. 2nd time around, seeking opinions of more BTDT mamas.

    NAK…Hey guys, it's been a while! I'm nursing my 2nd now, she's 6 weeks (2 weeks adjusted), and I'm looking for a little reassurance. She was born 5 pounds 6 ounces and is now 9 pounds 8 ounces,...

    Two steps forward, one step back

    So my milk is nearly back in full force! Woot! But as I touched on in my posts last week, my LO (almost 4 months, 2.5 months adjusted) is still not eating great from a bottle. I work 12-hour...

    Re: Milk is gone.

    Domperidone is a wonder drug. After the first 4 doses I can already tell such a significant difference. LO is eating better, her output is better, and my pumping is better. Thank goodness, this...

    Re: Milk is gone.

    Just to respond to mommal, diaper output is not good, 3 wets yesterday, no poops. That's even with supplementing with the freezer stash, which LO isn't taking well either. I use a PISA, have only...

    Milk is gone.

    It's over and I don't know why this has happened. Over the last few days my supply has dwindled and today there's nothing. Not when I feed my LO, not when I hand express, not when I pump. It's...

    Re: LO not eating.

    She doesn't have GERD and this nursing behavior only happens for like 2 weeks a month. The other times she nurses great, but that's usually when my milk supply is much much higher. Unfortunately, I...

    Re: LO not eating.

    We were at the doc Friday and nothing is wrong health-wise. We co-sleep. She's held all day because she screams if she's put down. We are almost always practically naked because we can't leave the...

    Re: LO not eating.

    I have read the new guidelines regarding wet diapers, and while I know they are not the most accurate or preferred method of measuring intake, they still give an a picture of hydration, just like...

    Re: LO not eating.

    I did the weigh-feed-weigh with her Monday because her bottle intake was so awful as well. I don't do 24-hour counts often, I go mostly by daily/weekly gain and diaper output to gauge overall intake....

    Re: LO not eating.

    A combination of both. I worked Monday, so was gone from 6:30am-8:30pm. During that time she took 8oz from a bottle. When I got home, she only nursed another 6oz from me until 6:30am the next...

    LO not eating.

    My LO is going through a period of not eating...again. She does this every few weeks where she wants nothing to do with eating (though she comfort nurses, just never eats), and doesn't really take...
  17. Re: Where did the other forum sections go?

    Woops, nevermind. Found them.
  18. Where did the other forum sections go?

    I used to be able to navigate to the other off-topic forums, on parenting and cloth-diapering, etc. but now I just can't find them. Is it just me or has this happened to others? Any advice on how...

    Oh my gosh, djs.mom, you were exactly right! And smelly. What is that about? Will her poops always be that way now?

    Will she ever poop again?

    My LO is just over 3 months and used to be a twice-a-day super-pooper...diaper explosion pooper. And then about two weeks ago they dropped to once-a-day, and now it's been about a week with no...

    Re: On a breastfeeding ledge...

    We were actually at the doctor on Thursday because I thought maybe she had an ear infection, but she was given a clean bill of health. I've tried nursing her in motion, but she is distract-a-baby and...

    Re: On a breastfeeding ledge...

    Unfortunately it looks like things are getting worse. She is starting to refuse the breast, actively sucking for maybe 2 minutes then pushing herself off and starting to cry. I'll switch her to the...

    Re: On a breastfeeding ledge...

    It was actually 3.5 ounces in 30 minutes of pumping, I did 10 on 10 off for an hour, and the baby hadn't eaten well before then, I don't think my previous post was clear. Next time I pumped it was...

    Re: On a breastfeeding ledge...

    Well, the tentative plan is to try and pump 3 times during my shift, at 9ish, 1ish, and 5ish, but we'll see how that goes. I have a PISA that works pretty well for me, and I also have access to the...

    Re: On a breastfeeding ledge...

    Her latch is great and she transfers fine in other positions, it's just side-lying where she struggles. And I don't know if it's because she gets too super snuggly and just comfort nurses, or if we...
