    Re: Advice needed RE: distracted eater

    I forgot to add, that lately she seems to be waking up when she rolls in her sleep, which also seems to correspond with the bedsharing as she had to roll on her side to feed. I always thought that...

    Advice needed RE: distracted eater

    I've got a couple issues that I'm dealing with right now regarding my 6.5 month old daughter and could use some insight.

    Background info, we've been EBF since birth, but we've used a nipple shield...
  3. Re: Do breastfed babies take longer to s

    My LO started STTN at about 6 weeks (she's 19 weeks now). Believe me, we were freaked out when it happened the first time. She's sleeps consistently 8+ hours per night.
    Sometimes I wonder if it's...

    Re: LO very fussy at breast.

    Sounds like a strike, I think. We went away for the weekend and she never feeds very well when we're not at home, and I know that stresses me out any time we go out. Nothing else has changed that I...

    LO very fussy at breast.

    Since the weekend (as well as off and on for the last few months) my DD has been REALLY fussy at the breast, it's a struggle at every feeding. I can barely get her to eat and I know she's hungry. ...

    Re: Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    I think part of the problem has been engorgement. I've been on domperidone, fenugreek and blessed thistle. I've since stopped the domperidone and have been so much more comfortable while nursing. ...

    Re: Responding too well to Dom & supps?

    Thanks for the responses.

    I think I may cut out the domperidone since it's the drug, and stick with the more natural approach using the fenugreek and blessed thistle. Then see what the doctor...

    Re: Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    Thanks for the encouragement!
    A friend recommended that I try putting nipple butter all over my nipple and areola before I latch her to make it slippery and able to slide into her mouth easier. ...

    Responding too well to Dom & supps?

    This past week I was prescribed Domperidone and advised to try taking fenugreek and blessed thistle due to prolonged nipple shield use (we finally stopped using it this week) causing a diminished...

    Re: Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    Thanks for the link. I'm not sure that's the problem though.

    The pain comes as soon as she latches and stops either when I pull her off or grin and bear it until she has more of the areola in...

    Re: Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    We've been working for close to 12 weeks to get off the shield, so I really don't want to continue to use it. I actually resent that I was given it to use in the first place.
    The LC that I saw...

    Re: Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    No, not yet. We've only been off the shield since Tuesday. I've also been slathering them with nipple butter between feedings.

    Extreme nipple pain...HELP!

    My LO is 15 weeks old and we finally kicked her 14 week nipple shield addiction this week after seeing a few LCs. Now I'm having problems with excruciating nipple pain when she first latches, it is...

    Re: 5 minute nursing sessions?

    How do I know if I've got oversupply or overactive letdown?

    Yesterday and today she's been back to normal, nursing for 10-15 minutes or longer. It's like she goes through these weird little...

    5 minute nursing sessions?

    I'm not sure if I have a problem or not.

    I'll preface this by saying that we are currently using a nipple shield and I'm trying to wean her of it right now with the help of an LC

    For the past...
  17. Re: Sore in mouth (using nipple shield)

    The LC didn't really have any suggestions about the sore, so I'm going to keep up with the Lansinoh until our doctor's appt, it seems to be helping with her discomfort and she's feeding much better...
  18. Sore in mouth (using nipple shield)

    I've been using a nipple shield with my 5 week old daughter since the middle of her first week. So far it's been very successful, her weight is up and she feeds like a champ mostly. This past week...
