    Re: I Need Major Help!

    I agree with not giving cereal at that age too. We had to supplement but with a 1/2-1 ounce of formula after nursing-that was before my milk came in. After my milk came in, they told us we could do...
  3. Re: The Misadventures of GigantiBoob (incredibly long, but I tell a good story! :))

    :lol I am not laughing at your night or your poor baby-but you tell it in such a funny way!

    I too have GigantiBoob! I pump just the itty bitty tiniest bit to relieve the pressure. In the cup, it...
  4. Re: questions about pumping - with an OS/OALD

    My baby must be a pig, :D . She eats between 4-5 oz., usually the whole 5 and she's 11 weeks. And she's on the small side at 10 pounds even, lol.

    I also have OS and OALD and just pump one side...

    Re: am i crazy? i woke him up!

    Mine was going on 5 weeks when she slept all night for the first time. I didn't even wake up, lol. It was a one time thing-she did it off and on for a few weeks before being a consistent night...

    Re: Spitting up

    Thanks! My son had reflux and we have been so happy that Emma Lynn hasn't showed any sign of it so far.

    Yep, it is. A very hairy Schnauzer, lol. The poor thing wasn't groomed while I was preggo...

    Re: Crying at the boob

    Have you tried taking him off and trying to burp him when he does that? Mine does the same thing-she fidgets and will cry if I don't get the gas up. Of course, she cries initially because I've taken...

    Spitting up

    Emma Lynn started spitting up through her nose today. I usually burp her when she gets fidgety and she didn't burp but instead spit up-with a huge long string coming out both nostrils. She did it...

    Re: Help! Nipple Blister?

    Thanks so much! I am going to go try the hot diaper compress now and then pump (baby is asleep for the night). I think it might be from OS and going so long without a feeding over night. Ugh, the...

    Help! Nipple Blister?

    I looked this up in the resource section but most info. on nipple pain had to do with the early weeks, improper latching on and cracked nipples instead of blisters.

    I think I have a blister on my...
  11. Re: Is everyone lying about sleeping throught the night??

    I'm repeating what was said but, yes, all babies are all different! Mine is almost 11 weeks and slept all night for the first time at 4 weeks-all on her own. She didn't keep that pattern until she...

    How long....

    How long does it take for a specific food to "get into" breast milk? How long before it's "gone"? Always wondered about that and I've heard conflicting answers-some say 12 hours, others 2 days.

    I...

    Re: Need answers fast!

    One of the best things we ever used on that was Mylanta-it takes the sting out and neutralizes the acid from the poopy. HTH!

    Re: Do babies nurse even if not hungry?

    Your baby is a week older than mine and I have wondered the same thing! If we nurse them for comfort, and they eat, as mine does, does this mean they will want to use food to comfort themselves as...

    Re: Gas, Oversupply, Spit up - HELP!!!

  18. Not a strong appetite?(long, sorry)

    OK, my feeding issues are never-ending it seems!

    Our day goes like this, sometimes with a half to one hour variation here and there:

    Re: 2 month old eats 6/7 times a day??

    Mine is two months old and eats every two hours during the day-which adds up to 7-8 feedings. She was doing 6 but didn't have enough wet diapers to make me happy so I offered the breast more and...
  20. Re: Moms with OS/OALD tell me your success story

    We were OK BF until the first two growth spurts were over. During that time I thought my baby was going to be colicky like her brother but than I did some research on LLL and discovered OS and OALD....

    Re: Gassiness?

    She does not seem to like it! I wish she did because I think it would help relax me too.
  22. Re: Ped says give 4-6 oz. of BM each feed??

    Mine is 9 weeks and eats about 4-5oz. at a feeding. HTH! I read that they normally eat 3-4oz. the first month and than add an ounce a month.
