  1. Re: Milk is low and nothing seems to be helping

    Do you mean you are EPing now? no nursing? Are you 100% sure your pump is effective, correctly sized, and in perfect working order?

    There are many reasons for low milk production, and many...

    Re: Feeling Full Soon After Pumping

    Yes, but many moms find that baby wishes to nurse more at night once they are back at work, and since this is good for their milk production as well, that is what they do. Also, sometimes kids start...
  3. Re: anyone else's LO discover solid food overnight?

    If your child is eating that much more food, it makes sense she will drink less milk. As far as the nursing less, that could be for any number of reasons.

    Ounce per ounce, breastmilk is a more...

    Re: Issues with Right Side

    If your fear is that you will lose milk production on one side, then it makes sense to encourage baby to nurse more on that side.

    It is...

    Re: Feeling Full Soon After Pumping

    :ita You can also encourage baby to nurse more frequently overall if the reason for pumping is feeling full in between nursing sessions.

    If you think your pump is not working correctly, talk to...

    Re: How to Wean??

    Hi, just wanted to say I agree with mommal about how to lower your milk production with an eye towards weaning. Try to be as gradual as possible to be safe.

    When you say you nurse baby 5 times, I...
  9. Re: First time mum, baby won't latch :(

    Hi, good to hear from you. Great that baby is nursing at least some!

    There is nothing inherently wrong with a baby nursing 'only' 10 minutes. this could be enough, for some babies. How many...

    Hmm, well that is interesting. Healthy breastfed babies do not need vitamin A or E supplements, and vitamin K is not recommended orally in the US because it is not absorbed well orally, so babies get...

    Re: How can I help my baby?

    I assume you mean problems began 6 weeks ago, not months? So, before baby was even two weeks old?

    There are a few things that might be going on. One is, that nothing is wrong. Much of what you...

  14. Re: HELP PLEASE! 18 Month Old Will ONLY NURSE

    Of course there may have been a measuring mistake, it is very hard to measure a baby, and I bet if you pull out a measuring tape and measure him a few times today you will discover how hard.

    Re: Weight gain worry

    I have no idea. It depends on the baby and it depends on how much is "enough" in that moment for baby. Just like everyone else, babies take more or less when eating depending on their immediate need....

    You can assume baby is hungry or not, either case, allowing/encouraging baby to nurse as often and as long as they will is not going to hurt anything.

    A normal nursing session at this age would...
