  1. I think this nursing strike might be the end...help please

    Lo is 9.5 months. He has always been a great and efficient nurser, but never really comfort nursed. He has also always been EXTREMELY impatient. He has pretty much been on an off=and-on nursing...
  2. Re: Nursing strike! how do I feed my baby?

    Thank you. I did finally get him to nurse once after just waking up from a nap, and he has already woken once to nurse. He also has major troubles eating when he gets overtired, so it's a vicious...
  3. Nursing strike! how do I feed my baby?

    My 4 month old has been having issues dealing with a delayed letdown, and now he has a cold as well. But he is striking completely now. I can not get him to even take my nipple into his mouth when he...
  4. Re: Let down suddenly taking forever- baby can't wait

    My problem is that I really cannot get a letdown with the pump right now at all -we are in full blown strike moan mode now - I'm going to start a new thread to get some advice.
  5. Re: Let down suddenly taking forever- baby can't wait

    I'm on the mini pill, but i've been on it for the last 3 months with no supply issues. don't even want to think about the pregnancy option! He woke up at 730 to nurse and was able to wait a couple...
  6. Re: Let down suddenly taking forever- baby can't wait

    I try to get him before he's starving during the night, but he really does not latch on easily if he's not REALLY hungry. It's now 530 pm, and he last ate at 230. I can't even get him to latch on,...
  7. Let down suddenly taking forever- baby can't wait

    DS is just about 4 months old. Nursing has gone pretty well from the start. I had some issues with OALD at the beginning, but he's been doing really well. He never nurses for comfort, and he gets...
  8. Decrease in number of feedings... Should I be concerned?

    My almost 10 weeker has been nursing well. He has gained 5 pounds since birth, and was nursing every 2-2.5 hours with 1 long stretch at night.

    He had shots last week, and has maybe been a little...

    Re: Help with reclined nursing

    bumping for another question--

    I am having a really hard time determining when I should nurse the other side during a feeding. DS often fusses when the milk comes too fast, but there are also...

    Re: Help with reclined nursing

    Just want to add that since yesterday, I have been really trying to keep him to one side per feeding, and make sure that side is done before switching him. I have also been working on reclining more....

    Re: Help with reclined nursing

    No, I am totally fine letting him eat as long or short as he wants. But for example today- he ate super quickly and I could tell a lot for 2-3 minutes - he was overwhelmed but managed to stay on the...

    Re: Help with reclined nursing

    Thank you- that last link is very helpful. My biggest problem with reclined nursing is that I find it very hard to have any hands free to deal with my toddler. I have been having some success today...

    Re: Help with reclined nursing

    Help with reclined nursing

    Ds2 seems to be struggling with oald. some feeds he seems to manage the flow ok, but other feeds he really struggles to stay afloat. Usually he will gulp like crazy for a couple minutes and then he...
  15. Re: Does this sound like oversupply/forceful letdown?

    I'm not sure. The more I think about it, it seems like it might be about him getting upset when the letdown slows down. How do I go about this - once the letdown slows, he really refuses to latch....
  16. Re: Does this sound like oversupply/forceful letdown?

    I have been trying to let him finish one side before going to the other. The problem is, the fussiness is so bad right now, that I don't have any way to judge what he's eating. I've just been trying...
  17. Re: Does this sound like oversupply/forceful letdown?

    I thought it seemed unlikely, because I feel like I can hear him take a gulp and then un-latch and cry. But I just feel so unsure about what is going on.

    But what about the green poop?

    Also,...
  18. Does this sound like oversupply/forceful letdown?

    DS2 is just shy of 4 weeks old. Nursing has been going so well, and I was so pleasantly surprised after having a lackluster nursing relationship with DS1 that barely lasted 3 months.

    Up until...
