    Re: Started supplementing, now stuck?

    I will get him weighed mid week to monitor things, but all signs are indicating that he is so far. No more freaking out though for now :)

    Re: Started supplementing, now stuck?

    My son started off at 7lbs then dropped 8% after 2 days, and then after supplementing with formula, he was back at 6lbs 14oz at 9 days. I had him weighed again today (after tweaking the...

    Re: Started supplementing, now stuck?

    Hi Maddieb
    Thanks for the reply and links. I had a wellness check yesterday and it looks like the baby is almost back at his birth weight at 9 days. This gives me a bit of relief so that I started...

    Started supplementing, now stuck?

    Hi there,

    First want to thank everyone for helping me with breastfeeding for my first child. I am now having issues with my second child.

    My second child is 8 days old. I had to have a csection...
  6. Re: pooping infrequently but not consipated (??)

    Thought I'd provide an update in case anyone goes through the same pooping frequency issue as me. The problem turned out to be not enough bulky food, or perhaps food in general. I started upping the...

    I do have 2 pumps (1...

    day weaning

    My son is currently 10 months old; I'll return back to work 1.5 weeks shy of his first birthday. I'll be gone for 11 hours then (6am to 5pm) and do not want to pump during that time. When should I...
  9. Re: pooping infrequently but not consipated (??)

    I just got a doidy cup, so I'll start using that soon then for him to play with.

    As for the reason I plan to wean at 12 months, I require uninterrupted sleep to control a medical issue. Right now...
  10. Re: pooping infrequently but not consipated (??)

    Thanks!

    I do nurse on demand and follow the rule to nurse shortly before solids. I don't normally nurse after, but I'll try that to see if it increases the frequency. At what point though should I...
  11. pooping infrequently but not consipated (??)

    Hi all,

    I've managed to stick with BF and have introduced solids to my LO when he turned 6 months. Now he's 7 months, but we're having issues with his bowel movements -- essentially, they are too...

    Re: oversupply & blocked ducts

    Tried all of that, but it's not going away... I started taking lecithin, it has allowed the right to soften fully, but lumps still there. It feels like they'll never go away, and since it's been a...

    Re: oversupply & blocked ducts

    The other thing on my mind is that perhaps LO isn't doing a good enough job draining the right. He's only on there for about 15 mins and he nurses every 3 hours roughly. When he is on there, it's...

    Re: oversupply & blocked ducts

    Yikes, the same ducts are plugged again. Perhaps they never got cleared in the first place. I think this will be an ongoing battle -- the same ducts were plugged the very first time I started...

    Re: oversupply & blocked ducts

    Thanks for the reply! Today my breasts got better (???)

    To clarify, this is what I experienced/did:
    -both breasts were overproducing, with the left more so than the right breast
    -then right...

    oversupply & blocked ducts

    Hi there,

    I'm nursing my 3 week old, and last week, I had a constant oversupply of milk in both breasts. This resulted in blocked ducts on my right breast that i'm just starting to get over (it's...
