    Re: Noises with bowel movements...

    Hahaha! Um, our daughter has been that way since day one. When we first took her home, I thought hubby was blaming her. They only time I get concerned is if she cries right after. My daughter has...

    Re: Should I even keep trying??

    First of all, I am sorry to hear about the treatment at the NICU. How AWFUL! Mine was in the NICU for two weeks. They allowed her to take a bink with breast milk on it to practice latching but was...

    Re: New Mom, Help!

    Hang in there and ask for help! I learned after recovering from my C that I can never do it all. And no one expects me to. I also can't tell you how much I need to be around other women. I was a...

    Re: Suck training--any help from LLL leaders?

    Yup. Our daughter was in the NICU for the first two weeks of her life and I was not able to bf her. They called it "Teaching to root" since she would not even give us feeding cues. We put my milk on...

    Re: trying to hang in there... help

    I agree with the other moms. Growth spurt. Mine had them at 3 and 6 weeks and recently had a third, and she is almost 3 months.

    Gas was a huge problem for my baby. She was in pain and the...

    Re: Baby achne

    It is funny, last night I looked at my daughter and felt relieved that the last spot was gone from her skin! She is almost 11 weeks old. I was told to use water only and when she drools, or milk...

    Re: large nipples

    I have no experience with it, but I see some of the ladies in our bf group use nipple shields when their children are newborns and some of them with older babies have told me that they graduated from...

    Re: Soft breasts

    I just want to say that medical advice is just that. Advice. As long as the baby gains weight and has enough soiled and wet diapers, I would not be too concerned. I listen to the advice for safety...
  9. Re: Help...have finally got him off the breast!!

    They nibble for thirst and comfort, according to my LN. My baby also does it right before a growth spurt. (she has had three already and did it all three times)

    When she "snacks" like that I hand...

    Re: One month old bites nipple, OUCH, help

    I am waiting to see the replies myself. My daughter is almost 10 weeks and does it. She smiles too, so she is "playing" I suppose. And it is my left as well that she prefers to do this too. Wonder...

    Re: how can I get my son to nurse longer?

    My daughter is an ad-lib feeder. I know it is said they should not have to nurse hourly but she does during a growth spurt. She spends less time eating but nurses more frequently. When I see this...
  12. Re: my baby won't breastfeed, she chose the bottle

    For about the first week or two of my daughter's life she would not bf. She was still in the hospital so I had nurses to consult. They gave her a nipple to work with the was difficult to draw from...

    Re: Inconsolable!

    We use the sling all day. It works. It was at night that we couldn't handle it. And just to give him credit, hubby is a godsend. He has been feeding her pumped milk in the middle of the night all...

    Re: Irritated and Tired

    I agree, growth spurt and cluster feedings will help. In general, I find the more I nurse in the day the less I nurse at night. We have a routine going now where she only wakes up once or twice to...

    Re: Inconsolable!

    Ok. I spent an hour with the ped and he could not find anything wrong. Just before we gave up he picked her up and she coughed. He then did a few things with her and asked questions specific to meals...

    Re: Inconsolable!

    Really? Maybe I should set up that appointment with the ped after all. I thought maybe I just had to find new techniques and ride it out. (Still reading the article though, just to be sure. lol)

    Hmmm...I will read it carefully. I just glanced and they are things I am already doing. He is right about the sling however, after an hour or so my back aches. I will see if there is more when I re...

    Alright girls. I have an eight week old that was mellow for about 7 weeks, aside from a couple of times crying over gas. Week eight, we cannot calm her. She cries for the majority of the night and...

    And after posting that, my daughter had a very bad poopy night. :shrug

    Re: Very wet poop. Worried.

    Hmm. Looks like our peds disagree. I just wanted to note that mine in particular told me about baby not pooping very early on and said it can happen any time after the mec has passed...I suppose that...

    Re: Skin issues from milk

    Huh. I heard that for nipples but I always just used my own milk at each feeding and never had an issue. I didn't really think about using the lanolin for the baby.

  23. Re: So frustrated - am I doing something wrong?

    My daughter is what they call an ad lib feeder. Sometimes she snacks, sometimes she really chows. I look at her weight and her diapers. After her first growth spurt she turned into a star nurser.

    Skin issues from milk

    My 8 week old is becoming distracted during nursing (she plays "peek-a-boob") and when she pulls off, milk gets everywhere but in her mouth. I do clean her up but if she gets milk on her face she...
