    It has gotten better since she has had a couple of weeks to adjust to me being gone during the day. I am jealous now because she is so satisfies from her bottles while I am at work she doesn't nurse...
  4. Re: Urgent, desperately need help!

    Yes I have a sling, I am not too sure how comfortable she will be in it nursing but it's worth a try. I am open to any and all ideas. I just can't let her cry when I can make her happy. Life won't...

    nursing for comfort

    My DD seems to nurse sometimes just to relax, not specifically to eat. As a result she is at the breast sometimes every 2 hours. Is it because she just likes the closeness? Is this normal for a baby.

    Re: what kind of bottles.....

    Great but I have a question about what you suggested. How do you keep the bottle in a mostly upright position and still get milk out. Stupid question but I honestly don't know.
