    Re: Dissolving "puffs" snack foods

    My baby boy (age 8 months) LOVES these. They don't dissolve immediately - he chews them several times before he swallows. They help him "practice" chewing while reducing the risk that he'll choke...

    Re: Breastfeeding from one breast only?

    Due to a medical condition, I feed DS (age 23 weeks) from my left breast only. We've not had any problems. We're both healthy and happy! It CAN be done! :)
  4. Re: excessive spit-up yesterday - please help!

    Just to clarify - we gave him the rice cereal after the spit-up (none before) day because we read that since the cereal is heavier it helps the milk stay down in his tummy. He's gaining weight...
  5. excessive spit-up yesterday - please help!

    Yesterday DS (age 14 weeks) spit up A LOT all day. He went down for his naps as usual, but woke up sooner than usual because of spit up. He also had a couple of incidents of choking (although they...

    no spit-up at night - is it just us?

    Hi, everyone. DH and I have a three-month-old DS. He sleeps in his crib at night in our bedroom. During the day, DS spits up, but at night, he NEVER does. Does anyone have any ideas about why...

    Re: Is it the pump or is it me?

    I pump every day (I work full-time), and some days are better than others in terms of pumping for me. Sometimes I can wait four hours and get only two ounces, while other times I pump every two...

    Re: Not pumping enough during the day

    I work full-time and pump at work as well, and I have the same problems that you're having. What works for me is to pump before DS (age 12 weeks) nurses at each feeding. I pump about one ounce eat...

    Re: Seedless poop

    My DS will be three months old Saturday. His poops have started to become less seedy than usual, too, in the past couple of weeks. He still has the same number of poops and they're still...

    Re: Passing Gas While Nursing?

    My baby (age 12 weeks) also toots a lot while eating, but he rarely seems upset by it. It's definitely noticable, though!

    Teething at 3 months?

    DS will be three months old Saturday. The other day DH and I noticed that there's a little "hump" or "bump" on DS's lower gum near the front. Ds has been acting more fussy than usual lately, but...

    Re: Vitamins ?

    Our midwife told me to take them for as long as I'm nursing, but I don't know that you "have" to. My midwife thinks it's pretty important, though.

    Re: Which nipples do you prefer?

    DS (age 11 weeks) uses the slow-flow NaturaLatch Playtex nipples. They seems to work great - he has very little gas.

    Re: logistics of going back to work and BF

    I would suggest that you pump more than once while you're at work, if possible. If you don't, your breats might become VERY sore and painful. And yes, I would start building a freezer stash ASAP. ...

    Overfeeding DS?

    How much EBM should my 11-week-old DS eat when he's away from me? I work full-time, and he eats a 4 ounce bottles about every 2-3 hours for DH during the day. Is this too much? DS weighs about 12...

    DS is 11 weeks old and BF exclusively. I have several questions:

    1. When do we start solids?
    2. When we do start him on solids, what do we...

    Re: Trouble pumping

    When I pump, I usually get only about 2-3 ounces at one time, so try not to worry so much about how much you're getting at once. The more you stress, the more difficult it is! :)

    Re: Which brand of pump?

    Congratulations on your new little bundle of joy! :)

    I work full-time (so I do a lot of pumping). I use the Medela PIS and love it. I have never had any of the problems that you had, though. ...

    Re: What's your pumping output?

    I pump every three hours at work, yielding 2.5-4 ounces each session. I also pump one ounce before each feeding when I'm at home (because I can't pump as much as DS (age 10 weeks) eats when I'm at...

    I know what you mean - I have the same problem. I've been back to work for about three weeks now, though, and I am finding that it's getting easier every day. One of the things that works best for...

    I have a two-month-old DS, and he nurses about every two hours. Sounds like you're doing everything right to me - especially if your little one is happy and healthy! :)

    Re: I'm so livid!

    I would, at the very least, talk to your doctor about your concerns. I know that BF is very difficult at times, and it doesn't help when you don't feel supported, especially from your doctor. Like...
