    Re: Oatmeal = more milk supply??

    I did the same thing! I thought about eating oatmeal every morning, but decided oatmeal cookies were more fun. I couldn't stop eating them! By the next day, I was spraying milk EVERYWHERE! I had...

    Re: My preemie BF experience

    I'm so glad you posted this! My preemie was born at 35 weeks and we had some of the same issues. It's nice to know that you're not alone and that other moms are out there working hard to make sure...

    Re: Ouch ... my nipples!

    I've had the same problem. Wish I could tell you how to stop it, but since it's still going on, I'm not much help! Hopefully someone else will know something. It really hurts!

    Re: Too Many Short Feedings! I'm at wits end!

    Mom-sicles! That's hilarious - I love it! I have one of those little mesh baggy things, and I'm totally going to try this when the kid gets to the teething phase. Now that you've mentioned the...
  5. Re: Need help.LO sleeping more...milk supply irregular

    ME TOO! The same thing happened to us yesterday. Argh. And then when he didn't eat much and I was sure he'd be hungry again in an hour so I didn't pump, he slept for 2.5 hours. Some days it seems...
  6. Re: Need help.LO sleeping more...milk supply irregular

    I'm having the same problem. :( I'm starting to pump after every feeding (at least during the day) and we'll see if that helps increase the supply. It's heartbreaking, I know. Hang in there.

    So frustrated! (mostly venting)

    We've had a rough few days, my LO and I. :(

    I was drowning the poor kid with my oversupply/OALD. I started block feeding and got that problem solved in a couple of weeks. We had about two...

    Re: Need support dealing with ignorance.....

    Well, think of it this way: blaming your BM supply is the one thing your DH can't be responsible for. It's an easy way of absolving himself of any responsibility for the baby's fussiness. In the...

    Re: aggressive sucker

    My son is the same way. The spitting up has decreased as he's gotten older (he's 11 weeks now), although he still has some doozies when he's overfull or gets too agitated too quickly after a...

    Re: PreNatal Vitamins

    I couldn't handle all the iron in the regular prenatal vitamins, so my midwife suggested I switch to a Flintstones vitamin with folic acid supplements. I stopped the folic acid after my son was...

    Oh man! That had never occurred to me, but it's hilarious! I'm going to remember that one. :)
  13. Re: I am not losing weight - Is my baby not getting enough milk?

    I've come to the painful realization that "you'll lose weight when you breastfeed" is just one of those generalizations that borders on being an old wives' tale - same as "your boobs will get HUGE." ...

    Re: Overactive Letdown - HELP!

    I know exactly how you feel! It's horrible, knowing the one thing you should be able to do to comfort your baby isn't comforting at all. I switched to block feeding and it took care of the problem...

    what am I? A yo-yo?

    Thanks to this forum, I discovered several weeks ago that there was a reason that my poor little boy was gasping and choking and acting like he was drowning when I would BF him - the dreaded...

    DH and the midnight EBM bottle

    Yesterday I had to go into work for a while (I mostly work from home), so I threw a couple of bags of frozen BM in the fridge for my husband to use while I was gone. Turns out he only had to use one...

    Re: breastmilk pH?

    He's still having plenty of wet diapers (sometimes 10 a day!) and his poops are fine, too (mustardy with little "seeds" - 2-3 a day).

    I'm sure the beginning of the week was a reaction to the...

    breastmilk pH?

    It's been a rough week. Last Monday we had our 2-month checkup with all the immunizations. My poor baby didn't like that one bit and was feverish and fussy for a day or two afterward. On Wednesday...

    Re: battle at the breast

    I've been having the same problem since my son was 8 weeks old (he's 10 weeks now). It's driving me crazy! Usually at night, when he's sleepy, he'll nurse like he used to in the good ol' days, but...

    Re: Swaddling

    If you can, get a copy of the DVD "The Happiest Baby on the Block." (I'd recommend checking it out at the library; it's not one you'll need to watch over and over, really.) Dr. Karp has a great...

    I have the same thing - frequent short nursing, with a lot of gas and spit-up during and in between feedings. I'm working on slowing down my supply a little, but it's...

    Re: What to do about a "lost" nipple

    Thanks, Carpentergirl. We do a lot of burping, tummy-patting, and Mylicon drops for the gas. I'll try some of your other suggestions and see if it helps. Poor little guy! I just nursed him and we...

    What to do about a "lost" nipple

    Hi, I'm new here, but I'm impressed with the amount of information I've gleaned from all of you so far. I have a question that I haven't seen addressed, though.
