    Re: Constipated baby

    Chiming in to say it's NORMAL. All of my kiddos switched over to every other day then once a week poops (watch out when it comes, it can be ALOT) at that age.

    Re: Milk is almost gone! need help

    Are you solely pumping to provide her milk? Does she breastfeed? Any other meds/health issues (thyroid, diabetes, etc)? Any supplementing (water? formula? solids?)?

    Re: Middle of the night pumping

    That is GREAT that he takes any side! Nursing him on the right side in a similar position to the left side might work. Latching and feeding well from the breast will often maintain supply better than...

    Re: Engorgement

    If I were that engorged I would wake up my LO or try and dream feed him while massaging that top part of the breast (work any lumps out).

  11. Re: What is the first postpartum period like...?

    I agree w/PP's! How awful for your pediatrician to say that! :hug

    My DS was a "more to love" baby (16 lbs at 2 months) and we were never told to change his feeding habits. Ped said he'll likely...

    Re: Biting/Gnawing

    Eeep! No fun being a teether!! :yikes

    As PP mentioned, having a teether nearby is a good idea + being ready to break the latch is important too.

    Being consistent is key. Baby will learn...
  15. Re: Help, 4days baby is not sucking, refutes my breast

    It sounds like an in person appointment with a lactation consultant would be best! Find an IBCLC here: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/bfhelp-find/

    As PP mentioned, ALOT of skin to skin contact...

    Re: Baby sleeps in crib and I feel bad

    Go with your gut mama. Based on what you mentioned above, it doesn't sound like you're comfortable with the plan to let her CIO. Babies that age can often wake and want to eat (a baby monitor in the...
