    today I got the boy to nurse 30 minutes and he wasn’t fickle or feisty but afterwards he was starving about 15 minutes later. I have him a bottle to see what was up and if he was getting enough. he downed 3 ozs!!!
    HEs not nursing correct! I’m going to keep pumping but not 8 times a day(thats killing me!), nurse him every few days to see if he…[Read more]

    hey,I got a question. I did something a little drastic to ensure the hospital would release my son. they kept over testing due to a condition he ‘might’ have and do to the testing and lack of being around mommy feedings were lost and jaundice was developed. …my doc said to drink tomatoe/berry juice, a little beer, cherrys and such(high protien,…[Read more]

    thanks double. I’ll just ignore it as long as I can.
    I doubt I could get mastitis w/ my first milk to come in.
    I got mastitis as I weaned my other.

    …thats what I get for abusing the system I guess.
    Since hes been home all jaundice has gone away and he’s alert and happy. I was having trouble winning with them constantly pricking him and…[Read more]

    God-iva, sounds like my first kid. CHECK FOR TEETH! Mine started teethng around 6 weeks and even if you don’t feel them don’t rule them out. They could be moving below the surface. I did often have to put her back on the breast. maybe u have big nipples and she currently has a small mouth. …time will fix that. We had to CONSTANTLY hold ours…[Read more]

    phat, does he throw fits about other food> …eventually he will give i if you leave it on the plate,
    also, mine will eat anything I eat w/ a smile. maybe laugh and giggle and then offer him something new and eat it with him. I’ve even gne as far as to fight (play)with her over the spoon like I don’t want to share it. then when she gets it she…[Read more]

    military, my first didn’t nurse in public well …my second seems like he might once we get it down.
    I have a cover as well and it works beautifully. I cna’t seem to get him to latch when put under the cover but a quick trip to privacy and we are set for 15-20 mins of nursing in public w/ a cover.

    ellas, they believe they will sleep longer because they call for mommy to much usually.
    I’m of the belief that they wake for survival. until my child can look at me and manipulate knowingly, I answer their every call. …my first did this around around 8 months. She would cry and the minute we stepped on the wood floor outside her bedroom, she…[Read more]

    mdie, pmp could kick your butt. cause a inbalance. don’t pump unless you need too. BAby will regulate!

    ….says the I hate pumping stuck pumping Katiebear!

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

    I’m kinda against the book too.
    babies wake for survival and rying to much creates developmental issues. ….not picking.
    you can manipulate feedings slowly. …for instance if you want to drop a 4am feeding you could hold off until 415 then feed …next few days go to 430 and keep pushing back.

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

    megs,

    pedi and dad think its his little weak lower jaw. it got pushed back before and during delivery and is weak(as did the rest of his darling face). it will strengthen with time but is preventing him from sucking successfully for long periods of time.
    I seem to have forgotten about his jaw in all the other drama we had at the…[Read more]

    I just bought breastflow bottles. still can’t give up my feelings on breastfeeding this boy.

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

    hey breastfeeding mommas! Just jump on to check out the breastfeeding chat. I breastfed my last for 10 months(until she could bite and laugh about it).

    …mastitis. I GOT IT alot as we weaned and a electric pump and leaning down towards the ground as I pumped(gravity) worked beautifully. mastitis is often brought on by feeding changes or a…[Read more]

    illy, sorry you went through that but thank for the giggle. hope the boy behaves for you better next time

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

    thanks megs! in the end it will all work out. I keep focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel and the overall fact that he is on breastmilk regardless if its in a bottle or off me is an accomplishment to me.

    …p.s. he gained 16 ozs last week. a whole lb in a week. Thats pretty awesome in my book. Hes 8 lbs 3 ozs at 6 weeks. I’m hoping…[Read more]

    laura, will newborn settle to a binky(paci?).
    my first tricked me and always wanted to be ‘topped off’ before sleep. This guy tried it once and I put a binky in his mouth and off he went. We kinda had to settle him to it.

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

    enum didn’t come across ashamed of breastfeeding. I think she found it offensive that others judge so quickly.

    ..my boy is on formula mainly for now. I am a breastfeeding mom(infact I still stink’n pump in hopes that we can return to breastfeeding one day) but if he isn’t gaining on breastmilk you better believe I will try something else.…[Read more]
