    Re: 1 month 2 week old Gassy

    Okay, great! If they were greenish or brownish, then maybe we could have discussed oversupply as a possibility. But it sounds like we don't need to! :)
  2. Re: 3.5 Week Old: Colic,Reflux or Overactive Letdown/Over Su

    Never used them, but wish I had. There was a good study showing that use of probiotics was associated with lessened intensity of colicky crying.



    Yes, exactly! So much can change in the...
  3. Re: 3.5 Week Old: Colic,Reflux or Overactive Letdown/Over Su

    That sounds like colic to me. Colic follows the "rule of three"- unexplained crying for 3 or more hours a day, 3 or more days a week, for 3 or more weeks at a time, in a baby who is otherwise...

    Re: 1 month 2 week old Gassy

    Yes, pretty much par for the course! What color are baby's poops (generally)?
  5. Re: 2.5 year old - weaned but still asks for nurse

    As long as you do not actively hate the behavior, I think it makes sense to roll with it and all the child to have access. He'll outgrow it in time. But don't feel like you can't limit it,...

    Re: Pumping at work for an almost 1 yo

    Introducing animal milk is a choice, not a necessity. If you continue to nurse frequently, there's actually no need to offer animal milk at all.



    Lactose is a sugar, not a protein. People...
  7. Re: Supply is in, baby eats for a few minutes at a time

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!

    The first thing to know is that you want to base your baby's milk intake on her diaper output and weight gain, not the length of time she...

    Re: Hardened milk in breast

    I sounds like you are experiencing engorgement, correct? Or is the hardness ONLY in the area immediately around the nipple?

    Re: Pumping at work for an almost 1 yo

    Ugh, if only we could rewind the tape, and have your pediatrician say "Wow, you have almost made it to a year! What an awesome achievement. How do you feel about continuing to pump after a year? ...

    Re: Spitting up!!

    :ita My kids were both big spitter-uppers. The worst problem I had with them was spit-up getting stuck in their neck creases and festering in there. So if your LO is a big spitter, swab out those...
  12. Re: Lactation aid and conflicting advice

    :ita A hospital grade pump will likely produce a much better result than a Swing. The Swing is a lightweight pump made for a mom who is not relying on it to increase supply- it's more a machine for...
  13. Re: Breastfeeding after having tubes tied

    The procedure itself will not impact your ability to produce milk, but things that happen before, during, and after it can. For example, if you are unable to nurse or pump enough while in the...

    Re: Comfort feeding?

  15. Re: overwhelmed. Quit or combo feed? 7 weeks PP, mostly pump

    Don't let anyone tell you that you'll regret it if you quit. Only YOU can judge whether or not this is true. Yes, a lot of women do regret it, but there are a lot who don't.

    I agree with the...

    Re: Too long between feedings??

    Some babies do well with few feedings per day. I don't think I know of any who have spontaneously dipped below 5-6 nursing sessions per day, but they do exist. So it's possible that your baby will...
  17. Re: 2.5 year old - weaned but still asks for nurse

    Wow, that is persistance! If he exhibits that same determination throughout his life, he'll go far. Maybe that's cold comfort right now, but still, wow!

    It sounds like the issue isn't nursing...

    Re: Giving up on leftie?

    I personally think that it makes sense to keep lazy leftie in production, if you can. That way you're less likely to end up visibly lopsided, and if something happens to the right breast, you have a...

    I can understand why you are discouraged! Mastitis makes you feel like you got hit by a truck, only you can't just lie down and die. You have to keep taking care of your baby!

    Re: Pumping problems-my fault??

    I agree completely with the PPs. But my experience with the Ameda Purely Yours was that it was not the greatest pump- kind of underpowered, IMO. So if you continue to have issues with pumping...

    Re: Still battling thrush!!! Help

    Very interesting! Silver has antimicrobial properties- IIRC, it's something about Ag ions disrupting the cell membranes of the bacteria/fungi/whatever. It's definitely worth a try, if you happen to...
  23. Re: Fussy feeder - is there an issue here?

    Let us know! And just an FYI for the future- it's not necessary that babies always stay on the same curve. Many babies will jump around on the charts- for example, my oldest started at the 20th...

    Re: Still battling thrush!!! Help

    :hug It sucks to be struggling with this for so long! But it won't hurt your baby. Remember, yeast is a normal element of your microbiota, and your baby's, too.
