    Re: Pumping Questions

    Your baby sounds just like mine. Everything you are saying sounds normal- like my baby. He chokes a lot while eating (from a bottle). He is tiny, too, so not latching on.

    So- I just found that on the bottom of the nipple that hurts there is a "hole"/"tear" where the skin is broken. Ouch! Does thrush do this?

    I didn't notice the soy- but he does get an upset belly if I have a lot of soy or dairy. Thanks everyone. I will put it off for a little longer, then try something else. :)
