    I think my little Carter hit his 6 week growth spurt. Saturday and Sunday he wanted to eat all the time!! Hewas doing good and draining one side in about 10 minutes, then would be done. But over the weekend he would stay latched on to both sides for 45 min to an hour. I must say I was getting stressed out. Now he has gone from every 3 hours…[Read more]

    If I take breastmilk of of the fridge can I let it get to room temp on its own or do I need to warm it up? I guess I am wondering if I take a bottle with me do I need to keep it cool or can I let it warm up a little?
    Thanks ladies….

    I have a question ladies. My son is almost 4 weeks. For a while he was feeding for about 20 minutes and then sometimes going to the other side for a few minutes. Now, well really for the past week, he has been eating only for 10 minutes at a time if even that. I know he is getting food because he is pooping and wetting normally and I can hear him…[Read more]

    How long does it normally take to have a peroid after having a baby while breastfeeding?

  • JPeanut503 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    I think my poor baby is a lazy breastfeeder…lol. Although he is only 5 weeks old, he does eat like a champ, but I am required to use both hands at all times while he is eating. I need to compress my breast 99% of the time in order to get him to latch on, then I need to keep holing both my breast and his head. Am I doing something wrong? I was…[Read more]

    Ladies do you know if it is safe for me to color my hair even though I am breastfeeding?

  • JPeanut503 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Boy I am glad to know that I am not the only one whose newborn is up all the time at night! He did so well the first few days home, since then it has been all downhill. Now I really understand when people told me to sleep when he sleeps; because that’s the only time I will get sleep. When did everyone start giving their baby breastmilk in a…[Read more]

    Is it normal for my 7 week old to just eat off one side at a time and for only 7-10 minutes at a time? He’s gaining weight and having the right amount of wet/poopy diapers so I guess he’s eating enough?

    Hello ladies! I have a question for those of you who pump. I am getting ready to start storing milk for when I have to go back to work and start giving Carter a bottle every couple days just to make sure he will take the bottle (don’t want him to starve). He is now 4 weeks old. Anyway; if I pump a little bit a couple times a day I can keep adding…[Read more]

    I guess I am kind of on that EASY routine without knowing it! He always eats as soon as he wakes up no matter what. Sometimes he goes right back to sleep, but recently not so much. So then he is awake seeming to be fighting sleep; until he gives in and goes to sleep. Then we repeat…..all day and night.

  • JPeanut503 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Ladies I am confused on this EASY routine. You all seem to refer to bottles when you are talking about it. I am strictly breastfeeding, at the moment, and will have to pump to go back to work in about 9 weeks. Am I missing something or maybe I missed part of the conversation. Sorry to be a apin, just a confused new mother here.

    Hello ladies. I just discovered this breastfeeding section on this site. Glad it is here!! Carter is now 19 days old and has wanted to feed a little differently the past couple days. He seems to only eat for about 10 minutes at a time, but wants to wake up every 1-2 hours all night long. Last night was the worst. He used to feed for about 30…[Read more]

    Lately it seems like Carter isn’t eating as much. He eats for a few minutes then gets fussy and won’t latch….sometimes he’s even crying when he is on the breast. This is all new as he was draining a breast every meal in about 8-10 minutes. Should I be worried? He still has the right amount of diapers. Also should I be pumping everytime it feels…[Read more]

    scarlet- thank you. Can I ask how you manage to only give your baby one bottle a day while you are at work? Do you work full-time?

    I have a question. I have been pumping every morning after my lo feeding session to build up my supply and my stored supply for when I have to go back to work. My lo only eats off of one side each feeding and lately one side has been sore as I think he has not been latching on correctly just on one side and I can’t seem to fix it. Is it ok for his…[Read more]
