  1. Thrush (1) and Length of Feed (2)

    My baby is 4 weeks + 3 days. about a week ago, I noticed several white spots on her lower, inner cheek. GP confirmed oral thrush and prescribed Mycostatin oral suspension for her. I was asymptomatic...
  2. Re: Introducing bottle of expressed BM

    Thanks for your thoughts, maddieb.

    To answer your questions, I can pump an adequate amount in a fraction of the time the feed takes (15 minutes vs an hour). Also, while I play games with my 4...
  3. Introducing bottle of expressed BM

    Hi all,

    I had a little girl 4 weeks ago (I had a son 4.5 years ago and BF'ed him until just 6 months ago). Anyway, baby girl is a bit on the fussy side (gas, I think) and cries a lot. She's...

    Re: breast pain

    Thanks for the ideas. My son had an appointment today, so I just asked about it while we were there. She did a full clinical exam and believes that I have fibrocystic breasts which is causing the...

    Hello,

    I have a 2.5 year old, still nursing. My right breast has been having some pain, intermittently, over the past 4-6 weeks (maybe longer). It isn't intense, just like a dull throb. It...

    Re: Playing with nipples

    Yes! I can relate. Recently, when I remind him to please stop touching, he says, "Mommy, I'm still digging!" I KNOW!!!!

    Playing with nipples

    Really just venting here but OMG I'm about to loose my ever loving mind with the constant nipple playing and touching of my breasts while nursing. I swear to high heaven that my child has never, not...

    Re: flu, decreased supply

    Thanks, ladies. My husband has actually been really, really helpful taking as much time off work as he can. We're totally on our own today (and most of yesterday) but at least the really horrible...

    Limits on nursing a toddler

    My DS is 25 months and we are still nursing (much to my surprise -- it is not at all what I planned before I had him and I wasn't sure I'd make it past the early days...but I digress).

    I have no...

    Re: Bedtime nursing

    I haven't tried a cloth -- the main trouble is he resists someone else putting something into his mouth. Fair enough, really -- I don't think I'd really like that either! He would most certainly...

    Re: Bedtime nursing

    thanks for the replies. dental hygiene is really important to me but he really, really resists teeth brushing (working on it) so this is likely to be a problem bottle or not. will try the water,...

    Bedtime nursing

    My 20 month old nurses every morning when he wakes up, down for his nap and at bedtime. And, a whole lot in between -- mostly in the morning and after his nap when we are quiet and at home. I'm not...
  16. Re: Only Nurses In the Dark. Have Experience?

    I had to reply to this. I could have written your original post when my LO was that age. He, too, started that trend when he was pretty young (4 months-ish) and it went on for months. He would...

    Last night my LO was very, very excited to nurse. He suddenly stopped, insisted that I uncover both breasts (would not resume until I did) and then proceeded to "tandem nurse" quite happily with his...

    Re: sudden decrease in frequency

    Thanks for the responses. Just thought I'd update a bit. LO is still nursing and that doesn't seem to be in danger of stopping any time soon. He is still nursing less than he did a few months ago,...
  19. Re: Potentially ridiculous concern but ....

    Oh, I know this feeling. My LO does this when he is sick and when he is feverish I tell my husband it's like nursing a little dragon -- his mouth is so hot and his hands are hot and always touching...

    sudden decrease in frequency

    My 15 mo old went through a really sudden change in his nursing frequency about 3-4 weeks ago. Prior to this, he was nursing awake in the morning, a short session mid morning, down for nap (after...

    Re: DH lost job, I gotta work!!

    I am really sorry about your husband's job loss. I'm sure that is hard on all of you, in many ways.

    With regard to your question, I agree with djs.mom -- you really only need enough for the first...

  24. Re: possible weight loss? feeding guidelines...

    YES.:ita this is it exactly. When I read things there is NO mention of breastfeeding. Zero. None. Nada. Which is really weird, I think, given that the AAP and WHO recommend BFing at least until...
  25. Re: 8 mo old baby scratches a lot while nursing...!

    I second (third? fourth?) the suggestion to keep LO's nails short. When my LO has even minimally longer nails, I canNOT stand the scratching. When they are nice and short, I don't even notice.
