    Re: Passing Down Bad Habits

    Why can't you bf in another room?

    I don't know too much about it but from what the others describe, it sounds inappropriate for a small child. They may be able to understand what they see but...
  2. So, if the baby is more efficient than the pump....question...

    Ok, I can pump about 4 oz total in about 5 min. using a double pump.
    My LO (5 months old) only eats for about 5 min on each side.

    My LC said that a baby can get 40% more milk than the pump can...
  3. Re: Which is yields more milk - Longer or more often?

    I get the same amount whether I pump twice a day or wait til the end of the day. But I worry about only pumping once, so I usually pump twice.
  4. Re: Closest bottle to BF latch?? tried Breastflow nipple collapsed?

    I use Medela bottles with the Medela slow flow nipple, after trying a few bottles with little success.

    I HATED the breastflow bottle - so much work and the darn thing leaked if it wasn't perfect.

    Re: Gave UP BF

    I agree with some of the pp's - I have heard every excuse from other moms when I tell them I'm breastfeeding. Not once have I heard "I didn't want to do it" but I've heard tons of "I didn't have...

    She's a perfectly happy baby in every other respect, and does all the normal stuff for her age, she's just long and lean. She hasn't dropped off the curve but she's close.

    Is the damage already done?

    I was wondering - once you start a solid once, is the intestinal "damage" done? I gave my 4 1/2 mo. DD some mashed banana 2x (as per the advice of the "Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" book.
    Then, at...

    Re: 4 month - weight check?

    My DD just went in for her 4 mo appt today (she's actually 4.5 mo old) and she weighs 11lb, 2.5 oz. At birth she was 6 lb, 12 oz.

    I was worried but the dr. was ok with it, he said as long as...

    Re: When will HE recognize the signs?

    My DD is 4 1/2 months and she is a stinker when it comes to eating time! She also goes from happy to po'd in a split second. I have really had to be ready to pop in the boob very quickly.
    She is a...

    I would get rid of the formula feedings. You don't need it and if you keep breastfeeding, your supply will keep up with his demands. But if you supplement with formula, your body...

    Re: Can't keep up

    Maybe don't ask them to go cold-turkey - ok, so now he takes a 6.5 oz bottle. Next time, ask them to give him a 5 oz bottle and see how that works. Then a 4 oz.

    That's how my friend night-weaned...

    Re: HELP!!!! I need help now!

    I can't offer too much advice but this is what i found on kellymom for encouraging letdown when your LO isn't around, but I'm sure it will help when your LO is trying to get milk:

    Re: I can't pump enough milk
