    Re: Really bad latch and nipple pain

    Do you experience the pain only after feeding? If so, could it be Raynauds/vasospasm? I had this when my DS was about 4 months old and it HURTS bad. Took five weeks to get an accurate diagnosis. ...

  4. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    Thank you. I will keep everything you said in mind and try my best. I know I am not alone (I have seen and read all the posts from other mamas). Thanks again for the reassurance.
  5. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    He eats just as much when he is with me though, hence the reason I am supplementing with formula, I don't have enough milk for him.

    We are using Avent #2 nipples. I suppose I could try to step...
  6. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    BTW, even though my milk supply was great up until a couple of months ago, do you think it has anything to do with the fact that I went through invitro in order to become pregnant? What at about the...
  7. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

  8. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    I do pump after my DS goes to bed. It would be hard to pump before he wakes up because as it is he is waking up at 6:30am.



    Yes and yes. I have tried everything to get a second let down but...
  9. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    He is still eating/nursing at the same frequency he did before we started supplementing (we just started supplementing a couple weeks ago). I have definitely not seen a decrease in how often he...
  10. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    Until when? Not sure what you are asking. My DS, who is 9 months, does eat only every three hours. I nurse him around 6:30am then, while at work, I pump at 9:30, 12:30 and 3:30. I then will...
  11. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

  12. Re: Even more of a decrease in milk after starting galatogogues?????? WTH?????

    I am pumping every three hours for 15 minutes.

    Re: nighttime feedings killing me! zzzzz

    What worked for me, after watching Dr. Karp's DVD 'The Best Baby on the Block', was swaddling my LO and putting him in his swing. He slept in his swing until he was four months old. Amazingly, he...

    Re: Fenugreek and Alfalfa

    While at day care he eats four 4oz (stage 2) containers/jars of baby food. He does not eat that much for me on the weekends though. He might eat two containers/jars of baby food.

    Re: Fenugreek and Alfalfa

    And now the number of wet diapers seem more normal to me. After sleeping through the night for 12 hours he is soaked! During the day he has about 4-6 wet diapers.

    Re: Fenugreek and Alfalfa

    Before I gave in and started giving him formula he was almost never wet when at home with me. He would sleep for 12 hours and his diaper would barely be damp.
