  1. Re: Help! About to Give Up-teeth!

    We pulled out the Motrin a couple of times for some serious teething pain. Will he take a sippy cup or a small soft cup? One with a straw?

    Also when mine got new teeth we had to go though...
  2. Re: Son Acts Hungry All The Time!!!!!!!

    When I saw the title I said to myself.. I wonder if the baby is about 3 weeks old? :D It's rough, it really is, but it too will pass.

    Re: Can baby be allergic to BM?

    A true allergy to mothers milk is very rare and honestly your baby would probably not be doing very well (I mean babies often are in the hospital/worse) with a true intolerance to your milk.

    Re: Getting to much milk

    I can see the potential for plugged ducts! You want to wean slowly off what your pumping. Is there a reason your pumping that often (like your away from your baby)?
    You could just pump a few less oz...

    Re: I dont have extra

    You might try pumping once a day (every other day or however often you want) in the morning (prolactin levels are higher, thus a little higher supply) and just keep saving till you get the 2-3oz you...

    Re: No weight gain in 7 days

    Within the context of what's going on (good diapers, perhaps falsely high previous weigh in, history) I'd not beat myself up over ONE weight check.

    If you offer both sides and she doesn't take...
  8. Re: Milk Supply Decreasing or Baby just hungry?

    It could be that he's nursing more because of teething or an illness coming on. Maybe he's just changing it up on you (they change nursing patters, a lot sometimes). Sometimes they do that when there...

    Re: help with pumping

    Definitely don't give up!!

    You can pump and give bottles, it is possible to do that without losing your milk but it is not at all an easy thing to do. In most situations it's much better and even...
  10. Re: good post - "Mixed Messages a Formula for Disaster"

    Guilt and women are great friends, even outside of anything that has to do with parenting. Women will often take on guilt where there is no need to and say they are sorry for things like the weather!...
  11. Re: Breastmilk vs. solids - nutritional values...

    It's not that breastmilk is on paper just head over heels got so much more fat and calories. That's comparing apples to oranges. It's the type of fat, the bioavailability of foods and much more than...

    Re: true or false?

    I've not heard that one! I wouldn't drink any alcohol with a very young baby though, since their liver cannot metabolize it at all.
    I can't think of anything in red wine that would help with...

    Here's the Ameda page on fit but it has more to do with the nipple rather than the breast. http://www.ameda.com/breastpumping/most/fit.aspx

    I'd probably see if you can find an IBCLC (Lactation...

    Her frustration might have to do with her latch and also because you don't work like a bottle. Her tummy is VERY tiny right now, and they eat ALL THE TIME. So for her to seem ravenous all the time is...
  16. Re: Question about bottle-feeding...

    It'll work out! Don't expect to pump a whole lot the first time and especially if you are pumping in addition to nursing (meaning your not replacing pumping with nursing, your adding a session). Your...

    Re: BF 2 year old and TTC

    Most likely you are ovulating, but it is possible to have have cycles and not ovulate. I wouldn't be too worried about kind of trying for a few months. Even if you know exactly when you ovulate and...

    Re: BF 2 year old and TTC

    Do you know if you are ovulating yet? If you are, you are.
    From everything I've read, if you are ovulating then nursing is no longer suppressing fertility. Does that make sense?

    How long have...

    Re: Waking to feed

    After they've gained back their birth weight and everything seems to be going well you can ease up a bit and see how they sleep. I wouldn't let a 2 1/2 week old sleep 10 hours or anything, but very...

    Re: Failure to thrive...

    From what you've just described it doesn't sound to me like FTT, I'm not a Dr though so I would strongly recommend getting a second opinion from another Dr. Do you have an IBCLC (Lactation...
