    Re: Hand sucking

    Exactly what PP said. My DS discovered his hands around that time, and now at 4.5 months he's still crazy about his hands!! He stops nursing sometimes just to suck on his hands for a moment, then...

    Sudden oversupply at 4.5 months

    In the first few months of breastfeeding, I had quite a bit of oversupply. I'd wake in the morning with milk everywhere, sleeping on towels, and constantly needing breastpads in my bras. I know this...

    Re: Middle of the night pumping

    I agree with the PPs. All I wanted to add was a :clap for being so perseverant in still providing breastmilk for your LO. Taking the time to pump, especially in the middle of the night, takes real...

    Re: Bag -o- questions

    First off, congrats on continuing breastfeeding! :clap

    I can't really help you with the fussiness... My DS is going through the same thing, but he's not far from being 4 months.


    It is...

    Re: hand or mechanical expression?

    I've been told that it does, but I know when I've tried hand expressing, it eventually hurt my hand from all the work! A lactation consultant once told me that a baby is the most efficient in...

    I've used Medela and Lansinoh bags and neither have leaked for me.

    Re: Dropping the shield?

    My SIL had terrible nipple pain for about 2 weeks with her first baby, and even worse pain with her second for about a month and a half. Eventually it went away for her, and I've read that as time...

    Re: screaming baby

    Your DH should definitely at least try using the carrier. Then he can decide if he really doesn't like it or if it doesn't help. But I would leave both the moby and baby bjorn with the caregivers,...

    Thank you all for your advice! I had a terrible night, once again being forced to leave the room, until the one available room was being used... DH saw how upset it made me (I even cried about it),...

    Re: Hates being covered

    Well they definitely don't think BF is gross, just BF without beng 100% covered.

    I did order an "udder cover," so we'll see if that helps. I'll practice with it at home first and see. Thanks...

    Re: Late Start help

    What may help with the latching on, then pulling off crying, would be if your sister expressed some milk by hand/pump, so when he latches on, he doesn't have to wait for a let down, and is instantly...

    Yes, I do dress in layers. I've pretty much mastered the art of discreet public BF, besides the fact that DS pops off constantly.:rolleyes: I really can't change the situation with my in-laws, and my...

    Hates being covered

    My DS has been BF like a champ these days, except when we're not at home, because he just hates being covered up! Sometimes I don't bother trying covering him with a blanket, since I'm discreet about...

    Re: Colic & Extreme Gas - So Depressed :(

    There is no way that formula of any kind would help, not to mention the fact that he'd inevitably swallow more air from a bottle.

    All I can say is to hang in there, and keep doing what you're...

    Re: One thing after another....

    Have you tried hand expressing for let-down to occur, then getting her to latch, so she doesn't have to wait?
  23. Re: Baby only latching on to one side regularly. Advice??

    Like the PP said, it could be positioning. Maybe she only likes to lay on one side? You could try the "football hold," so baby is still laying on her preferred side while nursing the other breast.
  24. Re: Pumping exclussively and need help!

    Well my experience was very similar. My LO couldn't latch onto my somewhat flat nipples, and for the first 5 weeks I had to pump. After that I finally got him to latch with a shield, which he...
  25. Re: Does weaning from shield=tortured nipples and fussy baby

    Ouch! I just weaned my LO (or more like he weaned himself) from the shield a few weeks ago, so I know how inconvenient those are. :\

    I'm glad your pain is subsiding though! Keep working on his...
