  1. Re: Should I give my bf baby formula/goats milk/soy?

    My DD's pediatrician told me that if I did give her formula, soy would be best because it is sweeter, like breastmilk, than regular formula is.
  2. Re: When do they stop nursing through the night?

    Thanks for your responses. I do not have an issue with DD sleeping through the night. I enjoy co-sleeping and BFing her. I was just wondering if it's *possible* that she really is hungry, or if...
  3. When do they stop nursing through the night?

    My daughter will be 6 months old next week. She still wakes 2 or 3 times at night to nurse. Is she still hungry, or just comforting herself to sleep? Last night was the longest she ever went...

    Re: Help! - How to heal a bite

    Maybe try Lasinoh and only use a pump on that side for a day or so in order to let it heal?

    Re: someone please help me!

    You can express some milk by hand before offering the breast. Also, you can wait for your milk to let down, then express into a wash cloth and allow him to eat after the spray stops.
  6. Re: OUCH OUCH OUCH! Sore nipples at 4.5 months

    Momsicles...I've never heard of those. Is it those mesh feeders that you put fruit into? How do I get frozen milk into them? I use plastic Medela bottles to freeze milk. Do I just scoop it out?

  8. OUCH OUCH OUCH! Sore nipples at 4.5 months

    In the last week it seems as though my DD has forgotten how to latch on. My nipples are more sore now than they were in the first few weeks when we were having difficulty with her latch. My left...

    Re: 6 weeks/ still every 2 hours

    My LO ate every 2 hours up until recently. She just turned 4 months and has just started to stretch some of her feedings out to every 3 hours. I've tried to delay her from eating just to see if she...

    Re: Not eating a much anymore? :(

    Is he having enough wet/dirty diapers? Is he still gaining weight? Also, have you introduced him to solid foods? The more solid foods he eats, the less milk he will take in.
  11. How can I tell if I'm having supply issues?

    What is the easiest way to tell if I'm having supply issues? I'm doing weight watchers, DD is teething, and she seems to be eating more frequently. She went from eating every 3 hours, to eating...

    Why is she doing this?

    My LO will suck, suck, then pull off. Then suck, suck, and pull off again. She does this repeatedly until my milk lets down and she gets sprayed in the face. If I let her try to latch on while...

    Re: sleeping

    My LO is 3 months old and the longest she will go is 3-4 hours. Usually just 3 hours though. I only get a 4 hr stretch during growth spurts. During the day she still eats every 2 hrs.

    How many calories?

    How many calories does an EBF mother need each day in order to lose weight? I had cut my calories to 1500-1800 and had lost 5 pounds pretty quickly. However, I stopped losing weight, so I went to...

    Re: Engorged, won't nurse?

    Yes, and she'll do it when I'm not engorged, but most of the time it's when I'm engorged.

    Engorged, won't nurse?

    In the mornings I usually wake up with my right breast engorged. It seems like my LO doesn't like to nurse from that side and will only take a few sips from it during the night (hence the...

    I might also add that I make LOTS of milk and can get 4oz in 10 minutes just from pumping one side.

    Re: Hospital grade vs. PIS

    I used a Medela pump while in the hospital, but I ended up buying the PIS Advance in the backpack. I love the PIS and it's just as good as the hospital's pump that I used.

    Re: can a baby nurse to much?

    When I was in the hospital, the lactation nurse said to me "Never deny the baby the breast." So no, I don't think you can nurse too much. My DD nurses every 1.5 to 2 hours. She is 5 weeks old.

    Re: milk supply question

    To build up a supply, try pumping after every feeding. That way the baby gets full and you can store anything that is "left over" in your breasts. I don't know how often your LO eats, but you might...

    Re: Let down

    For me, letdown feels like a warm, tingly feeling all over my breasts. Or, like the previous post said, it can feel like pins and needles all over too.
