    Re: Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    Can you nurse not lying down? I nurse him to sleep while I'm sitting in bed (I always nurse sitting so this feeding isn't different from others). He can't possibly fly around if I have him in a cross...

    Thanks for posting!
  3. Re: Baby Refusing Bottle During Specific Feeding Only

    I just wanted to reassure you that 6-7 oz for 9 hrs of separation isn't unheard of. My baby has been doing that many times (he's 11 mos now): some days 6-7 oz in that time, and other times he'd take...
  4. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    My doctor told me that my baby won't become sleep deprived if he wakes up multiple times, but if I wanted to allow him to sleep longer stretches, I should "rest assured" he was getting enough and...
  5. Re: Pumping too much while at work???

    You don't have to pump all of it out if you have extra. Leave some in there so when you come home your baby will relieve you of that excess! I can't imagine it would lower your supply if you still...

    Re: Low supply help

    And even if none of the above, there is still an option of it being hormonal. That's what I had. I wasn't pregnant, nor had a period, and I was doing fine on the minipill.

    Re: Low supply help

    It sounds like you're doing all you can on the pumping front. Perhaps this drop has been caused by something hormonal? I have that a lot. Just random large drops unrelated to my pumping (since that's...
  8. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Animal milk isn't the same as yogurt and cheese. Those are aged/cultured. Milk isn't. So while yogurt and cheese are fine for infants (my dr said at 8-9 mos), milk should be withheld until a child is...

    Re: Low supply help

    What pump are you using? It could be that your pump is at fault here. Also, how often and for how long are you pumping each day?

    I feel for you.
  10. Re: Poor latch has led to low milk supply.

    Have him evaluated for a tongue tie. Your baby sounds like how mine was at that age, till we got it resolved. Also make the bottle really unattractive by using a size newborn ultra slow nipple. He'll...

    Re: Nursing all night....help!

    Would you consider moving your baby out of your bed? Co-sleeping is wonderful and has many benefits but if it's ruining your sleep I don't know if that's the best option for you now. Also, many...

    Re: I couldn't correct my oversuply

    I too had recurrent plugs all the time. Like at least two a week at some point. THis was when my baby was about 5-8 months old. Seriously, I must have had a hundred plugs. Most were easy and resolved...

    Re: Cutting out a pumping session

    Yes that's what I was thinking. Maybe when my baby can drink regular milk, I'll feel safer dropping an entire session. Thanks for your input!

    Cutting out a pumping session

    My baby is almost 11 months old and I work full time. Since returning to work I've pumped two times every day, at 12 and at 3. I'd like to cut out one pumping session since he is ok with eating...

    Re: Toddler with a cold

    My baby also puts up a fuss but I think the Nosefrida would be much harder to use because it takes more time and more coordination, none of which I have in excess while holding down my baby's hands...
  16. Re: Am I leaving enough milk for when I'm at work?

    And less is fine too because he'll just eat more later. My baby and I are separated from 10-5 and he eats 9am and 5:30-6pm and in all that time he'd take maybe 7-8 oz if I'm lucky! Which is good for...

    Re: Toddler with a cold

    I put essential oils in the warm bath, which loosens his congestion. That, along with a vaporizer near his bed with a Vapo Pad inside so it emits special vapors to soothe and loosed congestion....

    Re: Pulling at nipple

    My baby does that on my right side whenever he hears noise from outside. He has to see what's happening so he turns his head while still latched on. It doesn't hurt me but it's quite uncomfortable....
  19. Re: can you have plugged duct with no symptoms?

    I had a soreness on the base of my breast, also on the bone. Like if I pressed my bone it hurt. It was a pretty severe pain, though. It woke me up at night when I leaned on that side. I tried heat...

    Re: Fenugreek advice

    It doesn't work for everyone. Instead of upping my supply, it upped my appetite big time. It just made me gorge on carbs all day so I quit taking it :)

    Try drinking a beer. I found that works in...

    Re: Increasing supply quickly!

    I doubt it's the milk making her tired. I nurse my baby all day and it never puts him to sleep. The only time that happens (occasionally) is at the bedtime feed. Plus, I think she is too young to...
  22. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    So why are you so particular about doing weighed feeds and all that? Have you tried spacing out the feedings? If you feed very often, it's more like the baby gets a bunch of snacks rather than decent...
  23. Re: Sore breasts, but no plugged ducts or engorgement?

    I had that once and then the next day I saw a tiny white dot on my nipple and it was a plugged duct in the end. I didn't feel hard or engorged at all. It was a blocked duct on the bottom of my boob,...
  24. Re: Advice needed: Not pumping enough milk to save.

    Pumping .5 ounce from each breast after feeding (which means 1 ounce) is pretty good! Usually you don't have much extra after baby finishes eating. However, if you keep at it for a few days, each day...
  25. Re: Need encouragement while baby is sick

    Happy to report that my baby is back at the breast and enjoying it :) I don't have that much of a decrease right now - maybe 80-90% of what I usually have but I can't really judge other than by my...
