    Re: Put down the pump

    Yeah, it's obviously different for every family...but I agree that it's NOT the norm for women to pump early on and NOT have problems related to it. I have a friend who knew she was going back to...
  2. Re: No stooling for 3 days in 5.5 week o

    Well, we're on day 4 and still nothing! But she seems happy...she has been a little congested (the whole family has a passed a cold around) and right after I nursed her and she was laying on the...
  3. Re: No stooling for 3 days in 5.5 week o

    I thought so, but then read an article on the LLLI site that said that you can't just go by urine and low stool output should be closely monitored by a doctor. I tend to just assume everything is...

    Re: Put down the pump

    I love this post! I didn't know better and was so worried I wouldn't produce ENOUGH that I pumped really early on with DS2, and ended up with MAJOR oversupply issues. Then when I tried to correct the...
  5. No stooling for 3 days in 5.5 week old?

    Hey all,

    My little girl (baby #3) had been stooling almost with every feeding...nice yellow seedy stools (after we got past some green stool issues at about 3 weeks from my supply still evening...
  6. Re: "To pump or not to pump" and other ?

    Thanks for the input! That does help...although I hope my supply can regulate before that long! It's just stressful to have to worry about whether they are getting enough, or too much or...yeah! :)

    Re: Pro-CIO/Babywise Friend - WWYD?

    Well, I knew this would stir things up, although, I'm not trying to be offensive, I'm honestly trying to defend a different perspective.

    I will apologize, I'm not trying to say that all DF moms...

    Re: Pro-CIO/Babywise Friend - WWYD?

    alright, had to share. Don't throw me under the bus, but I am proudly a Babywise parent. I know, I know, TERRIBLE. But hear me out.

    we followed BW with DS1 and now with DS2 (2 mos) and it's been...
  10. Re: DS sleeping through the night @ 7 weeks...supply questions

    Well, I will definitley keep an eye on it, but like I said, DS1 did the same and there wasnt any issue. He kept gaining and gaining just fine, even eating just 6 times a day. He was 20 pounds at 6...
  11. Re: DS sleeping through the night @ 7 weeks...supply questions

    Thanks! Yeah, he's definitely growing like crazy, and he's been eating every three hours during the day since he was about 3 weeks old. And he started sleeping 4-6 hours at night around the same...
  12. Re: DS sleeping through the night @ 7 weeks...supply questions

    Okay good, that's what I figured (with the discomfort/not leaking).

    So as far as needing to feed him 8-12 times a day, is that to keep my supply up or to keep him nourished? I am assuming it's to...
  13. DS sleeping through the night @ 7 weeks...supply questions

    hey ladies, I know this is a common question, but I'm just a bit confused because my BF experience with DS2 is so different than with DS1 (who is now 3).

    DS2 started sleeping 6-8 hours at night...
  14. Re: DS has Discomfort/Irritation when done nursing

    Sorry, one more question: Is the fact that he's gaining weight so fast a BAD thing? He's off the charts with weight AND height (and head circ). My first son was exactly the same; 15 pounds at two...
  15. Re: DS has Discomfort/Irritation when done nursing

    Oh and another thing...Ezekiel (DS) eats about every 3 hours, and always eats on one side only. So I feel like I'm doing the "block feeding" pretty well, considering each breast is only getting...
  16. Re: DS has Discomfort/Irritation when done nursing

    Yes, pumping isnt necessary, I just wanted to have some stored milk since I have a home based biz and i'm trying to get back on the horse with presentations, etc. I never thought of oversupply! I...

    Hey all, this is my first post on the LLLI website. I am excited to get advice from so many of you well informed and experienced BF moms!
