    hannah: My dr. Warned me in advanced that breastfed babies can go from pooping 8 times a day, to only once every 2 wks!!! AND- She said that is normal and ok! Sounds crazy to go 2 wks without pooping, but I think the decrease in pooping is very normal at this age. I’d say stop using the syrup…if it aint broke, don’t fix it. Ask your dr cause…[Read more]

    phatbaby: by 9 month, there is no reason to feed your child at night, unless the wake up still and want it. But they should be able to go throug thr night no problem. My son was sleeping throug the night well before that, and that’s fine. Just don’t wake them up. If he wakes up, of course feed him if he’s hungry. If he doesn’t wake, don’t feed…[Read more]

    hi mommies! I recognize a lot of you from our pregnancy forums 🙂 my son is 8 days old and as of 2 days ago, he’d gained almost 2oz a day, which is great. He latches well and my milk supply is great. I had so many issues feeding my first son and I was dreading a repeat, but so far, so good!
    wyatts mommy: I’m sorry about your situation. Sounds…[Read more]

    hey ladies. I need help with something. My breastmilk is coming in faster than my baby can drink it. I am making about 8oz, but he’s only 11 days old and drinks about 2-3 oz. I wish I had time to feed him and then pump the rest, but I also have a toddler to chase! Sooooo…what are my best options to keep my supply up without it going away since…[Read more]

    hey. This question is for the ladies that recently gave birth. I bled a lot for the first 2 wks, then the bleeding stopped altogether. It’s been 2 wks now without bleeding, then all of a sudden in the past couple days, I’ve had a few squirts of blood come out of me randomly a few times a day. It seems like my period! I thougt breastfeeding was…[Read more]

  • cosmomama replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    thanks ladies! Great help 🙂 I will just let it be. I wish I could pump afterwards but it’s hard enough exclusively breastfeeding my newborn for 30 min every few hrs while my 19 month old runs around uncontrollably! I don’t have 10-15 extra minutes to pump. So, i’ll just keep feeding him from the breast and hopefully it’ll even out. I just need to…[Read more]

    hey ladies. My baby is 4 1/2 months old now and he has decided that he doesn’t want to breastfeed anymore. He hasn’t been exclusively breastfed for awhile cause my milk was giving him BAD gas. So he has been given soy and breastmilk for a while with success. He used to LOVE breastfeeding so much that he would scream til he got it. Now, it’s the…[Read more]

    thanks ladies for all the great advice! I didn’t realize how many of you had this issue too! But it’s encouraging that you all made it work. The one thing almost all of you suggested was block feeding, and I read about it too. So I’m gonna do that for sure as well as work on positions. I rarely pump as it is, but i’ll try to cut it out completely.…[Read more]

    wyatts mommy: ok, so does that formula work? I saw it at target and was tempted to buy it, but decided against it my dr said he is feeding well and gaining weight, so I can stop waking him to eat and let him sleep…but he won’t! He eats every 3 hrs around the clock, wakes up on the 3 hr dot! Which is ok, except it takes only 20-25 min to feed…[Read more]

    I need help! I officially know the cause to why why my baby has been pulling off the breast screaming. I have overactive milk ejection reflex, or forceful let down. My poor baby is getting squirt in the face! My milk sprays out like a hose and he gags, chokes, pulls off, screams, and the gets sprayed up the nose 🙁 my DH calls me ‘tit cobra’…[Read more]

    balsamfir- I do have one. I used them every time I fed my first son. This son seems to latch great, so I haven’t needed it. I found it to also be a lifesaver. But I don’t want my son to get attached to it if he latches on well without it.

    imgibson- my issue is the same. It’s the left breast that squirts and that he doesn’t like. He latches on…[Read more]
