    Re: We have a biter

    I agree! But I wasn't gonna say it and start that debate on here because I figured I'd be in the minority;) That being said, I don't like the idea of it, but if setting him down alone does not work...

    Re: We have a biter

    Yeah, I wasn't really a big fan of the idea of flicking him, it was the suggestion someone gave me awhile ago if he started biting, it worked for them. I'll keep with the taking him off and setting...

    We have a biter

    So I knew I would jinx myself by saying my son hasn't bitten me yet to a friend. He's turned into quite the biter now. He'll start by sucking and starting to pull off then clamp down and scrape his...

    Re: Chapped nipples?

    We were both treated for thrush about six or seven weeks ago I think. There was zero change in the pain. Also no other symptoms in either my son or I of thrush, and it's not gotten any worse, just...

    Re: Am I doomed?

    Ok, been starting him out on the right side for his few feeds today and massaging and it's worked on the bruised feeling on the right side. Problem is, now I've got that same feeling on the left...

    Re: Am I doomed?

    I did have APNO at one point when he was four weeks old but that got sent through the washing machine and no pharmacy on island (Guam) does compounding. So since then, just the lanolin. I'll go and...

    Re: Am I doomed?

    Yep, the skin just on my nipple and a small area around though still well within the areola is bright pink and dry. No flaking, bleeding, etc. I've also noticed that it hurts more on the right side...

    Re: Am I doomed?

    Hmm I think that's the one thing I haven't tried. I've tried going topless, but that doesn't work for long as it hurts to carry the little guy around with no shirt and sore nipples! Maybe I'll try...

    My little guy is almost eleven weeks old and nursing him is STILL hurting! I cannot figure out what the problem is. We've taken care of my oversupply issues, no more fenugreek. According to...

    How quick does nystatin work?

    How quick does nystatin usually work to reduce pain? Three weeks ago we were suspected to have thrush so we were both treated with nystatin. It did seem to ease the pain a bit and my crack healed...

    My LO did about the same pattern! He went from eating forever to now he's usually done in about fifteen minutes. If he comes off and I try to relatch him then he gets so mad and starts screaming. ...

    Re: VENT!!! Stupid Doctor

    The frenulum is there in everyone, it's just a matter of how tight it is and the placement of where it's attached. Basically if he clipped it, he would be clipping something that is already normal...

    Went to the ENT today, and the verdict is that he isn't tongue tied at all. He said that he has great mobility of his tongue and would not recommend clipping it and putting...

    VENT!!! Stupid Doctor

    So I brought Elim in to the Doctor today to have his tongue tie assessed and hopefully get a referral over to an ENT doctor. First a little back history. I live in Guam. I lost my twins at 20...

    Woohoo! I actually got a decent latch out of him tonight on one side! The other side was semi-ok after the fifth re-latch. Unfortunately where I am, there are no LLL meetings anywhere within 3800...
  25. What's the deal? Thrush? Latch? Oversupply?

    Ok, so I'm not really sure what our problem(s) is. I had a LC mention she thought we may have thrush but wasn't sure. I went to my doctor (one that I don't trust, assigned by the military) she...
