    So my little one has her first ear infection at 3 months old. She has had horrible allergies for the last month, but wondering if nursing her while she is lying down may have contributed. She also has some rattling in her chest which I know she got strangled a few times from the breast and bottle with one of those times being during her formula…[Read more]

    lawsonsmom- I have the same problem. I have only been able to pump 3 1/2 oz every 3 hours lately, and I haven’t been able to pump any first thing in the mornings when I used to pump 10 oz at a time. She has been so hungry I had to give her a little formula. I have tried everything including the reglan, but I didn’t see enough increase in my…[Read more]

    Does anyone know if Stevia a natural sweetener is safe during breast feeding? I need to reduce my calories and I drink tea and occasional soda, but I like crystal light and they have a new drink called Fitness that uses stevia instead of aspartame

    so what exactly is this fermented oatmeal that everyone has been using? I hate having to supplement my little girl, but I have been trying any and every thing I can think of, but still can’t pump enough to send to daycare with her. Let down seems to be the issue I think with the pump, because I can pump about 3 oz and then it stops flowing, but…[Read more]

    seuban0– I feel the same way about my little one. I too am having some supply issues, but everything I have read says that the nipple stimulation is supposed to help. I am just as confused as you are.

    cherrydarling06–I have heard that taking REGLAN (metoclopramide) available by prescription and renting a hospital grade pump as well as using a supplemental nursing system has helped adoptive mothers lactate, so it may work for her also, but her milk supply may not be enough to breastfeed exclusively, but any breast milk is better than none.

    I usually just have a thin sleep bra and underwear, but keep a sleeper on her since I keep the house really cool for easier breathing for me and my two year old for our allergies. I must say we were having a lot of bf issues at first and I started wondering if I wanted to continue to breast feed and even though pumping at work is a pain because I…[Read more]

    So just wondering if any of you ladies sleep with your baby in the bed with you at night to breast feed easier when they wake up? People look at me like I am crazy because of the whole SIDS thing and I didn’t even tell my pediatrician because she thinks you should never allow your kids in your bed, but I feel comfortable with her there as long as…[Read more]

    –it’s okay as long as they are not raw, however, my pediatrician doesn’t recommend any nuts or nut products because several studies have shown it can increase the risk of peanut allergies in the baby later on. Hope this helps 🙂

    I was wondering if anyone has had any issues with cracked nipples. I have had cracked nipples since 3 days after the birth of dd who is now 4 weeks old. I have been to lactation consultants and my OB. Latch on is good and she was taking in enough milk and the OB gave me nystatin ointment to keep from getting a yeast infection in the nipple. I…[Read more]

    Mom2dom– I had this issue with my first born. He ended up having bloody stool and would scream constantly. I dried eliminating tons of things from my diet and could never find the culprit. Finally, we had to try formula because he was loosing too much weight and still had the same issue. She switched him to soy and he got 10 times worse so I…[Read more]
