    Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

    There are other things you can take to increase milk supply as well. If you are not comfortable with fenugreek you could try them. Blessed thistle is one and domperidone is another.

    This is what I did and what worked for me:
    I noticed that soon after my milk came in my baby started looking uncomfortable during feedings. Just squirmy and pulling off with some crying, but he...

    Re: Desperate, tired and confused on new baby

    I know what you mean about being at your wits end and not being able to eat anything. I found with my little guy I just had to eliminate dairy, but ALL dairy right down to the whey protein that seems...
  11. Re: Will giving my newborn a pacifier cause nipple confusion??

    I've given my son (now 2 months) a pacifier right from the star to help with reflux since he wouldn't stay on after nursing. I haven't had a problem but I'd rather he find his thumb. It just seems...

    I had a similar problem with my first son. I cried every time I sat down to feed him. I was so frustrated. I was silly and waited until he was 5 weeks old before I went to a lactation consultant. My...

    Re: Scabs on nipples; how to heal?

    Leaving your nipples exposed to the air can help too. Or using your own milk, just squirt a bit out after each feeding and wipe it around. That milk is good for more than just nourishment!;) .
