    Re: Experiences Using Reglan?

    I took Reglan - I think it helped my supply. Certainly didn't hurt or lower my supply after I took it for about 3 weeks. I have a history of depression, so my midwives were wary of prescribing...
  2. Re: 12 month old doesn't like cow's milk! What should I do?

    I'm sure someone more experienced will chime in, but I know a lot of moms who have mixed breastmilk and cow's milk in increasing ratios to get their baby used to the taste of cow's milk. Like start...

    Re: how much??

    My 9.5 month old nurses every 2-3 hours (sometimes more), day and night. I don't think his stomach, or my breasts, want to hold 6+ ounces at once.

    Re: Weight gain / sleeping through the night

    My two cents? Your daughter's weight is fine. My son was born average size, and has dropped weight percentiles along the way (see my signature). My pediatrician has declared him a very healthy,...
  5. Re: Possible to have a foremilk imbalance without oversupply?

    Thanks for the feedback. It is my gut feeling that he is basically okay, too, but I have always been concerned about his weight gain. He only gained 2 lbs between 2-4 months and his ped was not...
  6. Re: Possible to have a foremilk imbalance without oversupply?

    His poops are not green or at all frothy, but yes, they are completely liquid. Typically, they just soak into the (cloth) diaper. At first, I thought diarrhea, but since they have been that way for...
  7. Possible to have a foremilk imbalance without oversupply?

    My son is six months old.

    I feel like I have very little foremilk. Whether I pump for 15 minutes or even longer, there is very very little cream to the milk. I still get the same amount I used...

    Re: Low supply

    It doesn't sound like your supply is low at all - I think 5 oz every 3 hours is great. How many oz. a day are you able to send back to your son? Kellymom says average daily intake for a baby is 25...

    Re: If you have a highchair with no tray...

    Thanks for the recs - I am going to get one of those placemats. You've made me feel better about putting the baby up at the table with us.

    If you have a highchair with no tray...

    We just bought a highchair with no tray (Minui Handisitt). I like the idea of the baby being at the table with my husband and I. I would like him sooner than later to just eat what we are eating...

    Re: why

    I pumped a little in the early weeks to try to increase low supply. Then didn't pump at all for a couple of months as it made me focus on ounces (or lack thereof) and I preferred just putting the...

    Re: Should I let 3 month old STTN?

    Thanks for the advice - seems unanimous that I should let the guy sleep at night. Funnily enough, it seems that he is back to his waking very frequently ways so I shouldn't have worried too much...

    Should I let 3 month old STTN?

    Backstory: I struggled with low supply/milk late coming in. I saw a lactation consultant a few times in son's early days and ended up taking Reglan to boost supply. Because he lost so much weight...
