    Herbs for Increasing Milk Supply

    I know that fenugreek and blessed thistle are commonly suggested to increase milk supply, but does anyone have any personal experience with these? (I've already been to kelly moms website) How much...
  2. Re: Help! My baby acts like she is in pain!

    I would suspect gas if she likes that pressure on her tummy. My first dd had really bad gas. We actually had x-rays done and her tummy was just full of bubbles. She would cry inconsolably for hours...
  3. Re: 7 wk old crying-fussy-and spitting up while nursing

    My son is 10 weeks old and I think if he's squirming while he pulls off it's gas. If he comes off sputtering and leaking milk out of the corner of his mouth, the milk is flowing too fast (usually at...

    Re: Won't go with dad!

    Both of my babies have gone through that. I take care of them most of the time, don't even use sitters usually so they become very attached to me. You just have to keep giving them time together. Try...

    Re: 5 Minute Feedings?

    As long as baby is having plenty of sopping wet/dirty diapers and gaining well I would be jumping for joy at 5 minute feedings! My ds can take 45-60 minutes to finish a feeding and it seems by the...

    My son used to do that when he was a sleepy newborn. I had to wake him up during feedings because he would fall asleep and I thought he was done but really he wasn't. try massaging her head, wiping...

    Re: Frantic Dad's Introduction

    My son is a "tad tongue tied" as the doctor calls it. We had problems getting him latched on correctly for the first week and as a result he would scream during nursing sessions out of frustration...

    Re: good latch, no sucking???

    I would also suggest letting him "practice" sucking on a clean finger, thats what we did with my ds and it seemed to help

    With my daughter I rocked her to sleep for the first 3 months. Then she started waking up even after I had rocked her for an hour, as soon as I put her down she would notice. So I started putting her...

    Re: Now What

    I know I was told with my first baby (who was formula fed) that if she was throwing up we shouldn't give her milk because it would upset her tummy, only to give her clear fluids. Also the fast flow...

    Re: Working to put LO to sleep

    I learned this with my first baby from askdrsears.com that babies go through sleep cycles. if you put them down before they enter the deep sleep cycle, they'll wake right up. You need to wait until...

    When will he get more efficient?

    My ds is 5 weeks old now and takes 30-45 minutes sometimes to finish a meal. It's not that he's a weak or slow sucker either, he usually nurses vigourously and only at the end slows down when he's...

    Re: Water

    I wouldn't give an infant under 6 months water, too much can make them sick and I don't know how much is too much so I would just not risk it in the first place. If I needed to supplement I would use...

    Re: Duration of feeding?

    My 3 week old also nurses 30-45 minutes on both breasts combined. it's exhausting but i'm sure he's not using me as a binky. it just takes him a long time to get all the milk out. I've read they get...

    I hope so because I was already using them. The main ingrediants are benzoyl peroxide, sacylic acid and sulfur.

    Re: baby not latching-on

    My milk took 4-5 days to come in and my ds was pretty fussy and hard to latch on by that time too. It turns out we had an improper latch, ds wasn't taking enough of the areola in and wasn't getting...

    Re: is burping always necessary?

    I think as long as he's not really fussy you're just fine. bf babies don't burp as much as bottle fed babies anyway, at least in my experience. I always got a burp out of my dd after every ounce. But...
