  1. Re: Breast compression and large breasts

    Thanks for the tips and websites ladies. Very interesting. :) I've been holding parts of my breast at a time and compressing, then moving or 'rotating' so that by the end of the feed I've pretty much...
  2. Breast compression and large breasts

    Like the topic says..

    How do you manage to do it? My hand does not fit around my breast (36K UK size) and I can't compress the whole thing unless I use both hands, lol. Is there a trick to this or...

    Re: Where am I going wrong?

    Hi there. Thanks for the info. The Red Book I refer to has a WHO growth chart in it which has baby's weight plotted onto it at each weighing session. My son is currently on the second to bottom line,...

    Re: Where am I going wrong?

    That made me chuckle. There are quite a few incompetent health visitors around these parts, unfortunately. If you remember me from when I was BFing my DD her weight loss was due to one of these...
  7. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    I'm in the UK. My sw is male. His wife bottle fed his children. He has no experience with breastfeeding at all.

    My LO has now regained the weight he should have put on and is back on his 'line' on...

    Where am I going wrong?

    Hi ladies. I want to detail a typical nursing session by my son so that someone with a bit of experience can possibly point out where I am going wrong.

    I start by using the breast he fed from last...
  9. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    I have to take him bqck in a week to be weighed again. They haven't said much at all about his weight gain other than it being on the slow side.

    He fed 3 times during the night. I didn't swaddle...
  10. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    Yep. No one asked how often He was nursing. They looked at his weight chart and noted he had dropped a centile and I guess panic ensued. It seemed that they had no clue about ebf.. and to top it all...
  11. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    Oh! Also, I have topped him up, but with ebm instead of formula. :)
  12. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    Gawd, now I'm worried I'm missing his cues.. he is grumpy. I used to be so good at this. Maybe I should do away with his dummy.
  13. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    Id say he nurses a max of 6 times a day. If I offer he does nurse. Also he does take the other side if offered but doesn't nurse long. Usually about 5 -8 mins.

    He isn't demanding more often than 4...
  14. Still battling with poor weight gain..

    Thomas is now 9 weeks 5 days and I've just been told to 'top him up with 1oz of formula after every feed.' He is weighing 9lbs 3oz and feeds every 3 to 4 hrs for about 12 minutes a...

    Re: Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    Hi. Thomas has a poopy nappy pretty much every time I change him, which is about every 3-4 hours. Sometimes they are huge and other times they are just a "Wet fart" sort of stain but they are always...

    Re: Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    Hmm.. I guess I'll have to wake him up for the second breast. I change his bottom after a feed and this sometimes wakes him up enough to feed again.

    Thanks again, ladies.

    Ps! He was 6lbs 11 at...

    Re: Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    Thank you for the information. It has been a good read but has left me with a question.

    Should I be offering the second breast after he's done with the first? I can attempt to wake him again to do...

    Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    Hi ladies.

    I have a little man who will be 2 weeks old tomorrow and he has yet to reach his birth weight again. He was 6lbs 11oz at birth, proceeded to do huge black sticky poops (I think there...
  19. Re: Domperidone, 3hrly pumping and STILL only 10mls each side each time..

    It's ..not. I left my husband and with two children to look after and a house to run and a devorce to settle, I have no time for pumping. I offer her breast now and again but she's not been...
  20. Re: **RANT** That's it! I GIVE UP!! She can have the **ing bottle.

    I used to use the Breastflow bottles for my son and he hated them! He was breastfed until 3 months but I had to stop due to medical reasons I really don't want to go into.

    Anyway, they used to...

  22. Re: **RANT** That's it! I GIVE UP!! She can have the **ing bottle.

    :ita Things are looking up, yes, but only thanks to the Domperidone and the little stimulation DD gives now and again. I'm still taking more than my doctor prescribes, so my prescription runs out...
  23. Re: **RANT** That's it! I GIVE UP!! She can have the **ing bottle.

    Lilly now always has a try at the breast, but she has yet to actually properly nurse! She has a few sucks and lets go, then has a few sucks and lets go, then has a few more sucks, just cos I put the...
  24. Re: **RANT** That's it! I GIVE UP!! She can have the **ing bottle.

    Aww Mommal thank you for making my day. At least I know that what she is doing is normal. That makes it a little easier to handle. I figured she was just being difficult. I'll keep at it. Today I had...
  25. Re: **RANT** That's it! I GIVE UP!! She can have the **ing bottle.

    Here I am, ranting again! As my sig says, DD broke her strike the other day (YAY!) and I was on cloud 9 for a good few hours..until later when she screamed blue murder while I tried to nurse her. I...
