    Re: Gassy Baby

    I think all young babies are pretty gassy as pp said due to immature digestive tract. You can combat it a bit by not overfeeding in any one sitting, regular burping, watching the hindmilk/foremilk...

    Re: Abscess or just clogged duct?

    I feel uncomfortable with medical advice. I can tell you all the times I ever had a strangely lumpy boob, it was because of a buildup of milk from a clogged duct.

    A hot bath and massage usually...

    Re: Latching problems

    I wouldn't recommend syringe feeding either. When you want to feed, you can unwrap baby so he feels a little cold air and wakes up. Being snug and warm, makes him naturally sleepy. The skin on...

    Re: Please Help!!!!

    You can bring it back. Somewhere I remember reading that it takes about 3-4 days to see an improvement from when you start extra feedings or pumpings.

    A baby is much better to use for improving...

    Re: bleeding nipples

    Also check for tongue tie or tongue thrusting. A LC can identify these problems. I know what you are going through....It can be toe curling!

    Definitely a latch issue as posters said. I've...

    Lemon, you said you wake up with rock hard and leaky boobs. That alone means you are making enough.

    Both mother and baby must learn how to feed together and with time that usually happens. New...

    Thanks for the responses! I find it will be sweet and sour to stop pumping. God knows I'm not a fan of pumping but it did give me a break in the middle of the day. Plus to stop pumping makes me...

    When to stop pumping?

    Hello ladies! My DD is 17 mos old and I'm wondering if I can stop pumping soon. I pump once a day while at work and nurse when home (mostly a morning and nightime feed).

    So I'm wondering what...

    Liquids at mealtime

    I just don't get BF after one. I'm trying to glean info. from previous posters but I'm having a steep learning curve as I didn't make it this far with DD1.

    Re: When (if ever) will I get them back?

    I think most women deflate after BF. The way I view it, its a sacrifice we make having kids. All kinds of body parts are now worn out after my two! The boobs are just one.:D

    But what I traded,...
  16. Re: How Frequently Will I Pump for a 1 Year Old?

    At under a year I wouldn't give any hard or semi hard food. Why take the risk?

    The best finger foods are small overcooked pasta shapes like macaroni. Sauteed zucchini cubes (really small cubes)....

  20. Re: 11wk old feeds all the time and doesn't sleep!

    I get the feeling many babies have some degree of reflux until their GI system "matures". At 4-5 mos. the spitting up and restless feedings taper off. I also think its hard to distinguish between...

    Re: is my supply decreasing already???

    I'm in the same boat as you. I went back to work and have to pump. There are days I would swear I'm drying up based on pumping output but we've made it five months so something is working.
