    Mucusy poop

    My son is 6 months & his poop is often green, but sometimes yellow & is sometimes mucusy. Should I be concerned? I've read that green mucusy poop can indicate that the baby is not getting enough...

    Re: Gave UP BF

    It's so painful seeing other mothers quit when it's such a great thing to do! I feel the same way. My sister-in-law, her sister, my husband's cousin, all threw in the towel quickly & just never had a...

    Re: Reflections on BF after 7 months

    That's hysterical! I can totally relate! My version would be very much the same, but I'd add yeast infection/thrush. Tons of fun! :rolleyes:

    Stomach flu & breastfeeding

    My DS has the stomach flu. Although the pediatrician recommended that I stop nursing & give him only Pedialyte (what?!) I am continuing to breastfeed & I think he's getting better. Unfortunately, DH...

    Re: Ready to give up, desperate

    Is the dr sure it's yeast? Seems like it should have cleared up by treatment. Any chance it's some other infection?
    Congrats on everything you're doing. Sounds miserable!:hug

    Re: Breastmilk won't freeze?!?!?!

    I don't know anything about the unfrozen breastmilk.
    I had a yeast infection too & although my son didn't have it (we were both treated though), he would scream & cry at the breast. I don't know if...

    Re: I can't nurse/pump anymore

    I don't have a whole lot to add, but I just wanted to say it sounds like you're working hard & really trying to do what's best for your baby so way to go! I know the beginning can be horrible, but...
  8. Re: Dr. prescribed vitamins for breast fed baby

    I was surprised my son was prescribed vitamins at the hospital after he was born; I discussed it with the pediatrician later (she's a mom & breastfed) & she said they regularly prescribe vitamins for...
  9. Re: Nursing over an hour to 2 hours and beyond

    All of it sounds pretty normal to me. My son was big on the comfort nursing - he'd regularly nurse for an hour and a half or longer. Sounds like you're doing good!

    My son has a cough & cold too. When he has trouble nursing I sometimes run the shower with hot water (& a vaporizing bubble bath) & let the bathroom steam up. It relieves the congestion for a little...

    Introducing a cup

    Just looking for advice. When did you introduce a cup? Are sippy cups good, or is it better to wait & introduce a regular cup? Any suggests on the type/brand of cup or sippy cup?
    Thanks,

    Another thrush question

    Is grapefruit seed extract to be used to treat thrush only, or can it be taken to prevent it? I'm being treated now (with Diflucan), but I'm wondering if I should take grapefruit seed extract even...

    Re: Can't get rid of thrush

    I agree with the other posts - you should both be treated. If that doesn't work, the doctor may want to prescribe something else. My son started on Nystation, but then the doctor switched it &...

    Re: Eyes Not on Me???

    My son's eyes were generally not on me in the beginning either. Now that he's a little older, he seems like he doesn't have to concentrate as much on nursing so he can kind of look up to me....

    Re: Taking forever..is this normal?

    Hang in there! My son was/is the same way. He's colicky & often nurses for 1 1/2 hours each time. Some of it is actually eating, but a lot is comfort sucking. I keep some books or magazines nearby &...

    I've been there - thrush is awful. I never tried GV, but my doctor put me & my son on Diflucan for about 2 weeks & the symptoms cleared up after about a week. It was wonderful. In the meantime, I...
