  1. Re: sudden green stool in 9 week old???

    something just occurred to me- I have been switching sides more often because my OS has not seemed as bad (less engorgement, fullness, etc.) I wonder if that is contributing.....
  2. Re: sudden green stool in 9 week old???

    well, she hasn't been nursing less, except that after her cluster feeding session of 2-3 hours, she has been sleeping a long stretch. i do nurse in a reclined position when possible (def during those...

    Re: clicking sound while nursing??

    The OALD is bad- she chokes and pops off crying while I spray everywhere (my son who is 2, and nursed till 20 months when he self-weaned during my pregnancy, says "chocolate milk everywhere! I guess...

    clicking sound while nursing??

    So I've heard that clicking is not normal while nursing, but my 7 week old daughter does it at almost every feeding. I do have overactive letdown (she generally pops off during letdown at times and I...

    Over active letdown again

    Hi ladies. I nursed my son till 20 months (he self weaned when I was 20 weeks pregnant) and had a pretty substantial oversupply and oald. My new daughter was born two weeks ago, and happily I got the...

    Re: Need help with my 2 week old

    Exactly. BM digests quickly. If he'll only take 1.5 oz at one feeding offer more 15-20 minutes later etc until he takes it. Some "easy" babies will not demand often. Treat it like you were nursing-...
  8. Re: Oh, no! Weight Issues in 3 month old. Advice, please?

    Wait I'm confused. How old is she? I thought you said 3 months, but then later it says 4 and she is crawling???
  9. Re: Oh, no! Weight Issues in 3 month old. Advice, please?

    I wonder if there is not some reflux going on and the spitting up is affecting her weight? Another consideration is an allergy to something in your diet such as dairy. You could try an elim diet. ...
  10. Re: When to start thinking about changing my diet?

    I had to eliminate dairy with my son (and he most definitely DOES have an allergy, he broke out in hives when consuming it himself until just recently at 18 months) and the difference was almost...
  11. Re: Weaning naturally at 12 months?? For real??

    I'm sure it's more rare than people let on. My son actually was more interested in nursing at 12 months than 9. I think if I had stopped offering he might have weaned.

    That said I have a friend...
  12. Re: Newish research on counting diapers

    I have seen (not here, but on other forums) people suggest that a newborn who is not pooping is fine. That irritates me to no end! Oh, breast milk is just better absorbed. He's fine, was what I was...
  13. Re: mommy sick - baby breaks out in head to toe red blotches

    My son (9 years not breastfed, lol) just had strep and was covered in a rash like you describe. Personally, I doubt it's the meds but more likely she is also coming down with strep. It's highly...
  14. Re: Extremely Low Supply - Please Help!

    Oh mama, I was EXACTLY in your shoes when my son was born. I'm not sure what, but something delayed my milk from coming in. The good news is we were EBF by 14 days pp and he continued to be EBF till...

    Re: Weaning and night waking?

    I understand that night wakings are difficult. I have 4 children, including a 16 month old and a 2.5 year old. I'm also 5 weeks pregnant. I would say my 16 month old nurses 3 or more times a night,...
  16. Re: Frustrated and desperate! Losing milk supply at 2 wks?

    1/3 of women with PCOS have low supply, 1/3 have normal supply, and 1/3 actually have oversupply. I have mild PCOS and had oversupply. Chances are very very good all is fine with your milk supply...
  17. Re: Sudden decrease in supply... need help!

    Honestly, if the decrease in supply was very sudden and you also had your period, that could definitely be why and it may bounce back on it's own. My son used to get so upset a few days before AF and...

    Re: Pediatrician wants me to wean....

    i agree that not all babies will actually eat solids in the first year. however, I do think OFFERING them could help weight gain because some babies can be fairly distractible at 9 months. If it were...

    Re: Failure To Thrive

    I agree with you, a gain of 2 lbs in 4 months this early on is hugely concerning for the reasons you mentioned. That's an average of less than 2 oz a week.

    However, you're doing all the right...

    ah ok. well, I hope the docs can figure out what the issue is. If he just wants to push formula then I'd find a different doc.

    Honestly, what I'd be doing while you are getting this sorted is renting a scale. I'd weigh her before and after feeds and supplement if she does not take in enough. This way you know if the issue is...

    Re: Gaining too fast???

    I wouldn't worry at all. My son was about the same size as yours at 4 months, was 20 lbs by 6 months, and now at 14 months is only 22 lbs. He slowed way down when he started getting into everything,...

    He does sound like a bully.

    That said most babies who are allergic to soy and dairy can tolerate Alimentum, if you go that route. Occasionally they can't and have to be put on prescription formula...
