    How long do your babies stay on the breast? My DD has been only staying on for about 10-15 minutes and falls asleep and seems content. At night she stays on longer but in the day time she is an eat n’ run kinda gal. My baby is 6 weeks old.

    And for the reflux question, Tori had really bad silent GER. Meaning she didnt spit up but you can hear it come up in her throat. It sounds like a gurgling noise in her throat. I heard it while she was eating everytime she paused. Her eyes would get big and sometimes she would unlatch and scream then relatch. I tried everything natural that would…[Read more]

    Breenoel- My DD does the same thing, Let me ask you does your baby start fussing at the same time everyday? Does she seem satisfied after having the bottle or is she still alittle cranky? The reason I ask is sxhe might be a cluster feeder in the evening. By giving her the bottle your stuffing her so her body has to work really hard and if she is…[Read more]

    My daughter was on Zantac for refluz and it made absolutely no difference. We waited two weeks for it to kick in but nope. I cut out dairy and it helped a bunch. I LOOOOOOOVE cheese and chocolate so it was the hardest thing but it made a 90% improvement in her reflux. no medicine needed. I didnt just cut out dairy. I cut out anything cow. It took…[Read more]

    I really want to breastfeed. Aside from the cluster feeding I really enjoy that time with my baby girl. Shes so beautiful and I love our bond. She only has eyes for mommy. Is there light at the end of the ‘cluster feedings’? Does it END, is a better question.

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

    Yea cluster feedings a tuffy. My daughter acts like shes STARVING! My husband is always there saying she hungry, shes hungry. It happens when there is a growth spurt but it can also happen anytime. I thought my supply was just really really low in the evenings but I can hear her drink so I know shes just crankny.

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

    Anyone have the birth control Implanon? Thats the one im getting and my doc said it will not affect milk supply.

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

    My baby is 3 months old and still has an unpredictable eating pattern its soooo annoying. But atleast shes been sleepin through the whole night!! My baby HATES the carseat and the car! I have to go in the backseat and lean over her carseat and feed her in the car. For that reason I never go out.

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

    Well Tori started cluster feeding at 8 again. I have given her her binky since birth but she hates it she wants the boob. it was awesome last night my suggestion to mother of toddlers and newborns who cluster feed is have everything done early. Bathe the toddler, cook, eat, clean, everything before. Then when that time rolls around have a litle…[Read more]

    Ljsmami87 I would suggest using a medela supplemental nursing system. Its about 50 bucks you could find it online on amazon, ebay… I think some targets have it. Its a little bag you put around your neck and has a small tube that goes out from it and you put it next to your nipple and the baby latches on as if he/she is feeding from your breast…[Read more]
