  1. Re: Need a little emotional support...I guess...

    I guess the only real reason I can come up with for the supply issue is my schedule. Sometimes I sleep during the day. Sometimes during the night. He sleeps all night now so while at home, no nursing...
  2. Re: Need a little emotional support...I guess...

    no, no cracks in the nipple. he actually nursed a couple times today without biting and no pain today. I NEVER feel full any more, even if I go for long periods without nursing/pumping. It's been...

    Re: Disposable Similac Orthodontic Nipples

    I think the main reason would be that they are typically used in a healthcare setting and they come pre-sterilized and ready to use and then they are just tossed after being used so they don't have...

    Re: PLEASE HELP...Blood with pumping...

    I don't think it was from the nipple, the pain I had was further inside the breast. I did pump later at the lowest speed and suction and didn't have any other problems. I have nursed several times...

    Re: hope this is not a stupid question

    If your breasts don't feel soft, I would continue to pump for a couple more minutes as long as you aren't uncomfortable. I find that it takes me around 20 minutes to complete a full pumping. Just...

    Re: She had her first cereal!

    Debi~
    My lo still won't eat cereal. We started on solids a couple weeks ago (my lo was born 9-23 so they're pretty close in age). Anyway, he does the same thing. Makes faces, spits it out, etc. But...

    Re: motherlove milk plus for supply??

    Well, I hate to be the bummer in the bunch, but the more milk plus did nothing for me. I had the tincture. It tastes BAD. I would try chasing it with oj. Maybe the capsules will work. At least you...

    Re: Did fenugreek work for you?

    I must say that I took the pills and didn't see any results. I was taking 3/3X a day and it didn't work for me. However, I did read a post a month or 2 ago that maybe it had to do with the brand. I...
  13. Re: Domperidone - Why it is not for sale in the U.S.?

    I went through a period about 1 month ago (when ds was 4 months old) where I was losing a lot of hair. Enough that it was clogging the drain during my shower. It does have a lot to do with hormone...

    Re: I hope I don't sound stupid

    The pp is right...DEFINITELY don't pump. You're not full term yet and it could cause you to go into labor prematurely. I started leaking at 17 weeks:eek: so I know where you're coming from. Good...

    Re: crazy idea, but could it work??

    Could it be that when she's only taking in 1 oz, she's just thirsty? Don't worry about it if she's having plenty of wets. It isn't like she didn't gain at all. She's gaining. It's hard not to obsess,...

    Did your lo have a UGI to actually diagnose the reflux? I know the zantac is nasty and sometimes makes the babies hold their breath when I give it in the hospital. Then again some kids take it like a...

    I have to agree with the pp. What would it hurt to have her checked out "just in case"? Are you sure they are weighing her the same way every time on the same scales? You have the right to refuse,...

    I would say your breast milk is more easily digested than any formula would be. Just keep bfing to keep her well-hydrated. If you're comfortable with giving any solids (she's almost to the 6 month...
