    tiffsept15 – your LO probably spit up BECAUSE of the formula. I have ocassionally made a bottle of formula for my daughter and every time she throws up.

    Oh and I can pump 3 oz out of the left breast and only 1- 1-1/2 oz out of the right. Do I need to worry about this inabalance of production? How can I balance it out? Should I feed her the left breast first and let her finish the other to build supply or the other way around?

    So Jordynn has this new thing that she likes to do. When I am BF she likes to clench her little gums down and it hurts so bad. How do you stop them from doing that? She has no teeth and is 4 months on the 16th.

    Also a question to the bf mom’s that pump. Do you think that 4-5 hours is too long to wait to pump while away. I am gone from home for a total of 6 hours, 3 nights out of the week, those nights I pump at the 3 hour mark.
    Three other nights I go to class and am gone a total of 4-5 hours. I am in class for 3 hours and drive the other 1-2 hours. I…[Read more]

    Question. Are all of your babies eating 5-6oz every 3-4 hours? My daughter is content at home and has plenty of pee and poop diapers, I wouldn’t even be asking if I didn’t pump. When I am away at work, I pump 3 hours after the last feeding and only get 3 oz total. Should I try to increase my supply? I think Jordynn eats every 2-3 hours and I make…[Read more]
