    Re: nursing strike

    Hang in there! I know exactly how you feel. My LO went on strike at 2 months of age in a very similar fashion to yours--he would just scream when he even saw the breast but would nurse fairly well...

    Many thanks for the good news!
  3. milk sat out for 3 hours - use later?

    Hey ladies,

    I pump while my LO is at day care. I just came home and realized that the milk I pumped 3 hours ago was still sitting out on the counter. Doh! Here's the question. I know the...

    Re: Help!

    It may just be the reflux and if you can get that under control things will improve. My LO did the same thing for a long time (well, when he wasn't on a total nursing strike). He is also on Zantac...
  5. sensitive to dairy in breast milk--solids?

    I'm not sure whether to post this here or in the allergy board, but thought I'd try here first. My LO is sensitive to dairy in my breast milk so I have been off of it for some time. Tried...
  6. Re: I need some help with my 6 months-old

    I posted this in response to another query recently but it sounds like it might be relevant to your situation as well:

    We had success with the Ferber method. My 7 month old LO was nursing every 2...
  7. Re: At the end of my rope...PLEASE help!!

    You might try the Kidoppotamus Swaddle Me blanket. It fastens with velcro which helps it stay attached. I used it with my LO until he was slightly over 6 months old. He was very active and would...

    Re: 4 month old waking every 2 hours

    We also had success with the Ferber method. My 7 month old LO was nursing every 2 hours all night long and not eating much during the day. We followed Ferber's approach of extending the feeding...

    Re: Help Baby Refusing Breast!!

    Sorry! I just realized my post was probably more discouraging than encouraging. I should have said that I don't think 3 months is at all the norm. From everything I've read on this site and others...

    Re: Help Baby Refusing Breast!!

    Just some words of encouragement. My 7 month old LO was on strike for about 3 and a half months and now is nursing just fine. It was a slow process getting him back on track--would scream when he...

    Re: is rice cereal/oatmeal necessary?

    Thanks for the replies. I talked to a nurse at my pediatrician's office today and she said that the rice cereal/oatmeal is not necessary for a breastfed baby of his age. So we're just going to ditch...

    is rice cereal/oatmeal necessary?

    My 6.5 month breastfed LO hates rice cereal and oatmeal. There are some fruits and veggie purees that he likes better. Is there anything wrong with just giving up on the rice cereal and oatmeal and...

    Re: 5 month old is on strike

    I know how you feel! We went through the same thing starting at about 2.5 months of age. He would just scream if he even saw my breast or if I tried to hold him in any position that had ever been...

    Re: Is your baby on Zantac?

    My 6 month old LO has been on Zantac since he was about 6 weeks old. It has worked well for us, although we have had to periodically increase the dose as he has gained weight.

    I've found that...

    Have you tried Lily Padz? I don't have a huge problem with leaking but they have worked well for me and they are very convenient, reusable, and easy to clean. Supposedly the light pressure on the...

    I'm so sorry to hear you're going through a strike. I know how stressful it is. My 6 month old is just coming out of a 3 month strike (would only nurse when sleepy since he's been about 2.5 months...

    Re: Flu shot and breastfeeding

    I think the concern is that children's vaccines no longer contain thimerosal including the single dose flu vaccine given to children so should one be concerned about a small amount of thimerosal from...

    We got one in the hospital but haven't tried it yet.
  20. Re: OALD - Never stop spraying - Help!

    Got it - thanks! So is it normal for milk to spray out across the room in several "jets" if I do hand express well into a feed / well after let down to check the flow? It seems like my LO is bothered...
  21. Re: OALD - Never stop spraying - Help!

    Thanks so much for the tips, Tiana. But how do I know "when the letdown subsides" when I'm hand expressing. It never seems to get any weaker no matter how long I hand express or pump. Should it slow...
  22. OALD - Never stop spraying - Help!

    I'm coming out of a month long nursing strike with my 13 week-old. I know I have OALD--my LO pulls off and screams after being on for a couple of minutes when I can feel my let-down. So when I hand...

    3 weeks of nursing strike

    My 13 week old has been on a nursing strike for 3 weeks. He will take the breast when sleepy, so I nurse through the night and after naps. I pump and bottle feed him expressed milk at other times.
