  1. Re: Breastfeeding Frustrations with 3 week old

    Re: Red ring rash

    Welcome to the forum!

    The first thing I have to say is that it sounds like your pediatrician is a keeper! A doctor who knows that allergies generally come with more than one symptom and doesn't...

    Re: BLW & Choking

    Choking is definitely not part of the process. I think the issue here was the food you served him. Blackberries are in the size class of foods that you are not supposed to give to a child under 2...

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the possible pregnancy!

    The most important thing to look out for when you're pregnant and nursing a young baby is a decrease in supply. A majority of...
  8. Re: aching/pulling under arm while breastfeeding

    There's actually breast tissue extending into the armpit area- it's called the Tail of Spence. So you could certainly be feeling milk moving through that area. Is it connected to the recent bout of...

    Re: Baby Threw Up First Solids

    One interesting thing about allergies is that there's pretty good evidence emerging that allowing a baby to eat allergenic foods has a protective effect, and that withholding them may make a child...

    Re: Oversupply?

    Gassiness is really common in young babies. It's just a side-effect of having a very immature digestive system. If you'd never pooped or passed gas until a few weeks ago, you'd probably find the...

    Re: Baby Threw Up First Solids

    Was she upset when she threw up? If not, I'd probably just keep letting her try a variety of solids and wait for her to get the hang of the whole thing.

    Re: Baby never seems satisfied

    Yes. This sort of thing is why there are widely accepted procedures for checking a baby's weight- using lots of different scales or weighing the baby in differing states of dress/undress can make a...
  16. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    :ita I would definitely ditch the dummy for now. It may be that he's accepting sucking as a substitute for feeding, if you know what I mean.

    I would also always offer the second breast, skip...
  17. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    If he's nursing every 3-4 hours and sleeping around 10 hours a night, it sounds like he can't be nursing more than... What, like 5 times a day? If so, that's really, really low. Most babies need...

    Re: feel like giving up

    I'm convinced that a lot of what is said about milk storage is designed to make nursing and pumping seem even harder than it already is! You're not supposed to shake separated milk to recombine it...

    Re: feel like giving up

    Scalding does not decrease milk's nutritional value. It deactivates enzymes like lipase, but the nutrition- the balance of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates- remains the same.
  21. Re: Ache in breast only when not feeding

    Hmm, burning akes me think thrush or pain from milk ducts refilling. The fact that you have a strong letdown and need to nurse on just one breast per feeding makes me think that you have a lot of...

  23. Re: Ache in breast only when not feeding

    Welcome to the forum!

    An ache such as you describe could be a number of things, including a plugged duct, pain associated with letdown or refilling, localized engorgment, thrush, and mastitis. ...
  24. Re: 6 month old, slowed weight gain, pump output, sleep issu

    Can you post a complete weight history? Different charts will give different percentiles, so if you can provide pounds and oz or kilogram measurements, that would be best.

    It would also be...
