    Re: Nursing Strikes vs BLW

    NS = nursing strike, I got lazy at the end :) Thanks both for your support and suggestions. :)

    Honestly, I thought it sounded young as well, which is why I'm here. He's been a distracted eater...

    Re: just curious...

    We had issues early on, and had some feed and weighs at an LC. As I was doing a whole lot of pumping for a little while, it gave me an easy comparison. Based on a weigh-in at just under 2 months, DS...

    Re: Teeth??

    Definitely sounds like teething. DS was an early starter as well (teething by 2 months, teeth by 4 months, and 6 teeth with 2 more on the way now @ 9 months). I used to let him nurse as he needed...

    Nursing Strikes vs BLW

    :hello DS is 9 months old now. After much difficulty and much pumping / some supplementationin the early days, we found our rhythm, and he was EBF on demand until 5 months :D, when we followed BLS,...
  5. Re: My 8 Mo old would not nurse today, H

    Is it possible that she is teething or not feeling well? We sometimes have off-days.

    That being said, I find that since DS is so interested in eating, he is not as interested in nursing (DS is...

    Re: Poop has a green cast...

    DS also had this happen from 2.5mths onward (and at 8 months occasionally still does) anytime he has a cold or is teething. We have both happening right now (they do tend to go together I suppose),...

    Fewer wet diapers

    Hello all - DS is 5 months now. He typically eats and has decently wet diapers 6-10 times a day (depends on whether or not he's grazing). He has largely been EBF - he only very occasionally gets...

    Re: Fighting/thrashing at the breast

    Sorry for the bajillion replies, but I had a couple of more things to add.

    I can relate to the having worked so hard, and frustration with subsequent issues - DS wasn't EBF until he was almost 2...

    Re: Fighting/thrashing at the breast

    Also, randomly, I find that he's worse at my right breast, for whatever reason, so if things are not going well, I give him my left instead, and work on the right at calmer feeds. :rolleyes:

    Re: Fighting/thrashing at the breast

    Our DS is 4.5 months old now, and it sounds like what he does is quite similar. He has always been a very busy boy - needs lots of stimulation, likes to be social and keep busy, very active and...

    Re: Teething?! Pls help

    We have been having the same issues on and off, and are certain it is teething (DH's family were all early teethers, and DS has big cheekies as it is and do they ever flame!). It's also worse at...

    Stinky Gas

    My DS has typically poops at least once (sometimes 2+) every 24-36 hours. Last week he went almost 5 days without pooping, which I know is not unusual for an EBF baby - he has pooped daily since...

    Re: green slimey poop?

    I agree with carmen about the teething - I have a 4.5 month old, who has been teething for the past month (DH's family are early teethers), and I've noticed that poops sometimes tend to get more...

    Re: 4 month old not pooping

    Our midwife mentioned to us early on that it's not uncommon and can be perfectly healthy for an EBF of over a few weeks of age to poop as little as once a week. As it is, many LO's start to move...

    Re: tingling sensations

    I agree - I had OALD, and, especially in the early days, would experience a deep tingling sensation with a bit of pain when starting to nurse, or when going for a longer period without nursing. ...

    EBF swim diapers

    We're going to start "swim lessons" this weekend. DS is 3.5 months, and EBF - his poops are still quite runny. I ended up buying a reusable swim diaper, but know that both it as well as disposables...

    Way to go! You're doing the best that you can, and that is all that you can do. You're persevering, and have been trying longer than most people would. You should be proud of yourself.
