    wow i wish i can pump that much. the most i got is just 4 oz. that’s why i’m kind of worried that my baby isn’t getting enough. and with that 4 oz, my breasts were really full.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    seuban0- yeah i get your point. to be honest i don’t really know how much i can produce if i pump on a schedule basis. i don’t pump that much for my baby won’t take the bottle. i just pump when i’m sooo engorged.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    kelley- i feel you, my baby yesterday was like that also. i wanted to cry because i don’t know what to do. try and try to offer the breast because your baby needs to eat. that’s what i did and was practically on bed all day. all the best to you…

    deeyore486: thanks. i think it’s a bug too. i will eliminate dairy, caffeine and chocolates from my diet. i’ve been eating almonds lately, i don’t know if it’s the culprit. but i read somewhere it increases milk supply also.

    benbubby- my lo is 3 mos old and she’s the same as your baby. try to swaddle at night. that’s what we do although she doesn’t like it. but it has to be done so we both can get some sleep.

    momofcash- oh i never thought of that! yeah sounds good! i guess i should stop obsessing about how tiny she is. haha. one more hurdle for us is to get her to eat from the bottle. every time we try it’s either she chokes or throws up. but we have to keep on trying because in about 5 weeks i have to go back to work.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    styx- thanks. yeah she’s using nystatin. i thought there’s going to be a different medication for me. good thing i can use that too. how often you use it? and for how long?

    hi ladies, for quite a while we were trying to give a bottle to my baby in preparation when i go back to work. she doesn’t really want it and will always scream. but today after going to the mall, my husband gave her a bottle and it’s working. kinda make me sad. i never thought i’ll feel this way although it’s still my milk but it’s still gives me…[Read more]

    styx: what kind of vitamin drops are you giving to your LO? i give mine trivisol as per my daughter’s pediatrician suggestion.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    scarlet and momofcash- thanks. we bought a scale for babies because we wanted to monitor her weight. and after feeding i weigh her as bri told me before. i do it once a week before but lately i’ve been doing it like three times a week. i’m paranoid, i know. lol. she was born at 6.1 lbs. when we left the hospital she’s down to 5.8 lbs. really tiny.…[Read more]

    hi ladies, i need some help because my baby still doesn’t take a bottle, she’s 8 weeks old. i’m planning to go back to work next month just part time though. we’ve tried different kind of bottles already still she won’t take it. even if she’s hungry, she’ll just spit the expressed milk out. so now i’m kind of thinking to go back to work by sept to…[Read more]

    i need help please, i think my baby has a cold. she’s having a hard time breathing. i don’t know what to do? should i call and go to her doctor right away? poor baby. ….

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    my Lo was 6.1 lbs at birth and because she had jaundice when we went home she dropped to 5.8 lbs. very tiny baby. she’s still into newborn clothes up to now at 2 mos. last time i weighed her she’s at 9.4 lbs and that was last 4th of july.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    after nursing my daughter threw up all she ate. that happened twice today. i wonder what’s wrong,on both occasions i was holding her up. should i feed her again right away or wait for a while? thanks for the input

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    bri- thanks. my baby is almost 12 weeks. and she goes like 5 to 6 really wet diapers. she’s gaining weight. but i noticed before she gains an oz a day then lately it’s like 1/2 oz a day or 2 oz in 3 days. well maybe she’s tiny so i always worry about her weight gain.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    emilees2babies: my baby is gaining weight and the wet diapers is just right for her age, so i guess she’s getting enough eventhough i can’t get that much when pumping

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    my baby had a mild thrush as what the pediatrician said. when i nurse it’s not painful or anything at all. she still has the white thing on her tongue even after the medication. how would i know if it’s gone? any ideas? she didn’t mentioned about me being treated as well.

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    bri- wow that’s really huge belly. that picture is your first or second pregnancy?

  • ella15 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 5 months ago

    baby723- my baby is being treated too. but we only use nystatin for 9 days. i don’t know how to check if she’s ok. the doctor never said anything about me being treated also.

    bri- should i also be treated? hers is just on the tongue. not the whole mouth though.
