  1. Re: Lip tie (photo) can I have good latch it

    Breastfeeding is like giving birth. It is natural, but natural is not the same as easy! You are not alone in struggling with this.

    Can you return to the pediatrician and ask about the lip tie? ...

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    :hug Of course not! What mom loves pumping?! But I agree completely with the PPs- don't drop the sessions. "Milk memory" (love that term!) worked in your favor once, but there's no reason to think...
  3. Re: back to work - overfeeding baby while I'm gone?

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on making it through the first 14 weeks!

    Your baby's bottle intake sounds a little bit high if you go by the rule of thumb that a baby is generally going...

    Re: Baby not taking bottle

    Child-free weddings can sometimes be compatible with nursing babies who won't take bottles if you do things like:
    - Hire a babysitter to care for the baby during the wedding, close enough that you...

    Re: Will I need to pump?

    Being played for a fool, eh? :rolleyes: Too bad "working with kids" is not the same as "knowing what is normal when it comes to breastfeeding"!

    Kudos to you on being the one who is willing to be...
  6. Re: Please help! On verge of quitting. Baby has ?allergy

    :it's with MaddieB. In particular, I think it's a very good idea to ditch the "eat, play, sleep" 3 hour schedule. That sort of schedule sounds great when you read about it in a book, but it's not...

    Re: No milk in right breast...help?

    It's very common to have differences in supply between breasts. Sometimes these are quite mild, but sometimes they are so extreme that one breast will be supplying most of the baby's needs and the...

    Re: Best Breast Pump

    Are you located in the USA? Thanks to the Affordabale Care Act, breast pumps are now covered under many medical insurance plans. Check with your insurer before you buy! :)

    Re: Will I need to pump?

    I like your once-per-day pumping plan- not only do I think you'll end up with some useful milk, but I also think you may spare yourself some discomfort from overfull breasts. I would store the milk...

    Re: Feeling frustrated

    The reasons to avoid soap are:
    1. It removes protective oils from the baby's skin.
    2. A lot of soaps contain nasty chemical ingredients that you don't want baby exposed to- this is particularly...

  12. Re: Lip tie (photo) can I have good latch it

    Welcome to the forum!

    Based on the photo, I am not sure that I, personally, see a lip tie. That could just be a normal, albeit rather thick-looking, frenum. Because you suspect lip tie and...

    Re: When, How, What

    Welcome to the forum!

    Let's start with the WHEN part of your question. Despite the doctor's "go ahead", the recommendation of the AAP and the WHO remains that a baby get breastmilk or formula...
  14. Re: 2 weeks of bloody, mucusy poops at 4 months

    One thing to know about allergies is that while the tendency towards allergy is inherited, specific allergies are not. That is, if you (or someone in your family) have an allergy, it's more likely...

    Re: Feeling frustrated

    "Regressing" is just another word for "how babies actually sleep". I know there's this trope out there that babies "should" sleep longer and longer stretches as time goes on. You can even find all...
  16. Re: Help! I have 48hrs to get my baby to start gaining weigh

    The way I got a scale was by renting it from my IBCLC. I have also heard of people renting them through medical supply places- do they have those in the UK?

    With the Domperidone and the...
  17. Re: Need help- pumping makes my breast lumpy &can't get milk

    My instinct is that the shield size isn't right, and therefore the nipple is getting constricted as you pump, and that's leading to milk coming forward but not being able to come out, IYKWIM. Can...
  18. Re: 2 weeks of bloody, mucusy poops at 4 months

    :hug Of course you are feeling crushed. You are trying so hard and not getting the results you deserve. I felt the same way when my firstborn wasn't gaining weight despite all my efforts. Just...
  22. Re: Need help- pumping makes my breast lumpy &can't get milk

    Is the lumpiness confined to one area of the breast or is it more generalized?

    Sorry for the questions- I'm :scratch over here!

    Insurance is unlikely to cover a pump rental. They might if you can get your doctor or midwife to prescribe one. But in my experience, a rental wasn't that expensive- mine cost $3 a day. Of...
