    Re: Husband and Breastfeeding

    Re: how do I get him to take a full feed

    I kept a wipe (ya know, like a diaper wipe) next to me, and when DS would doze off, I would wipe his forehead.

    Re: 16 day old only sleeps when being held!!

    One word for ya- SWADDLE! I had the exact same issue and it solved my problem. The startle reflex is very strong at this stage, but swaddling prevents them from "startling" awake.

    When I was having low supply issues I called my hospitals' LC, and she said actually NOT to drink too much water. Confusing, I know! :eek:
  7. Re: Doesn't like pacifer but loves sucking his thumb

    I kinda wish my DS was a thumb sucker! ;) It would be nice if he could soothe himself that way. Anyway, I see your dilemma, and I guess all you can do is let him suck away!

    Let him sleep! I agree with all the PP's.

    Re: Help! Solids at 4 mos.

    At four months, breast milk should still be her main source of nutrition, but you can feed her solids a couple of times a day.

    In the beginning, you are really feeding her just enough to help her...
