  1. Re: Being Seperated from Baby for 4 Days

    Thank you for your replies. I'm going to do my best at answering your questions and ask you some :)
    @Mommy2lilah: I'd rather not say where we're going or what we'll be doing (privacy and all that!),...
  2. Re: Being Seperated from Baby for 4 Days

    We can take him with us (and we're driving so I can make that decision all the way up to the day we leave), but I really feel like him being on his normal schedule, in familiar surroundings, and not...
  3. Being Seperated from Baby for 4 Days

    In June we will be going on a trip without the baby for 4.5 days. He will be a week shy of 10 months when we leave. At first I wasn't worried about it at all, but then we had issues with slow/no...
  4. Re: LO losing interest in food and should I pump?

    Goodness no! He eats solids 3 times a day and nurses at least 7 times per day. I was saying he is disinterested in 2-3 of the nursing sessions we have each day.
  5. Re: LO losing interest in food and should I pump?

    disinterest is in nursing only...and he's not consistently disinterested. I would say he does this 2-3 feedings a day...but I feel like I need him to eat because of his low weight!
  6. Re: LO losing interest in food and should I pump?

    This is also after several minutes of attempting to get him to relatch. I have a good supply and it seems to respond to his demand well, I guess I'm just paranoid? I do nurse him side-lying for at...
  7. LO losing interest in food and should I pump?

    I posted a couple of weeks ago about slow/no weight gain. DS is doing great. He's gaining, growing, and even his countenance has changed! I added 2-3 feedings per day and also 3 servings of solids...
  8. Re: Update to slow/no growth and a new ?

    He gained a little, but it gradually slowed in his first 4 months and then there was no gain between 4 and 6 months. He is 11 days shy of 7 months today. For us, I think the lack of poop should have...
  9. Re: Update to slow/no growth and a new ?

    Thanks! I guess I was just concerned that the quick gain might not be good for him, and I was also concerned that he may become disproportionate with continued rapid weight gain. We'll just stick to...
  10. Update to slow/no growth and a new ?

    Well, it's been 1 week (+1 day) since we found out DS hadn't grown in 2 months and he is doing great! He started at 10lbs 12 oz last week at the Dr's office and was 12lbs 13.5 oz today on our scale....

    Re: Logistics of BF and Babywearing

    Bummer...I guess I'm tied to the house for a while, oh well.

    On the upside, the week of constant nursing and increase in solids has already improved my boy's system. He's pooped every day since...

    Re: Logistics of BF and Babywearing

    ahh...I have a pretty large chest too...maybe that's why I feel so clumsy trying to get everything set up in the right place!

    Logistics of BF and Babywearing

    I've watched a couple of youtube videos, but I guess I'm just dense. I cannot figure out how babywearing and nursing simultaneously is supposed to be easier than just nursing. It's just clumsy and...
  15. Re: breastfeeding in public... suggestio

    I'm not trying to be snarky at all, but am genuinely curious why you think that a bottle of EBM is not a good idea? Is it because you think she should just get used to NIP or for a different reason?...
  16. Re: breastfeeding in public... suggestio

    magnoliahoney is right, the first time is the hardest. It was a uncomfortable for me the first couple of times, but I got over that really quickly. Try going out the next couple of days to places...

    Re: Biting, Nursing Strike?

    I am by FAR no expert...but as far as biting goes, my DS's bottom teeth came up about a month ago and he got me pretty good a couple of times!! The first link mommal gave you helped me a lot. Also,...

    Re: Slow and now NO weight gain.

    Illmeg, thanks for thinking about me :) I DO feel bad, but it's not your fault. I'm worried about my boy and terribly sad that I haven't done a good job breastfeeding or paying attention for that...

    Re: Slow and now NO weight gain.

    Thanks again ladies. I was definitely in a moment of weakness when I wrote that last post. I was expecting to find some reassurance when I went back through my DD's records, and instead found more...

    Re: Slow and now NO weight gain.

    Just went back through my records...turns out DD wasn't as small as I thought she was. She weighed 17lb 11 oz at 6 mo and was 26 in. Now I'm really worried because everyone was concerned about her...

    Re: Slow and now NO weight gain.

    thanks for the responses ladies. Just to clarify, the doctor has made no suggestions as to a solution yet. She did schedule a weight check in a month and take a urine sample, but we won't know the...

    Hi all! I'm new to this particular forum and have a question about my sweet baby boy.

    DS is just over 6 months old and only weighs 11lb 12oz. He did not gain any weight between his 4 and 6 month...
