    Thanks for advice. I’ll try doing that. Thanks. 😀

    But what if you can’t? What if your baby keeps loosing weight, will you say no to formula then? I had every intention to breastfeed and pump for the first one or 2 years. But my milk wasn’t good enough, and formula was the only way to keep my daughter healthy. I feel like a complete failure, so try to be open minded. I never once thought i’d be…[Read more]

    Katjak7, thanks for the tip. 😀

    Probably a daft question, I know – I have a slight tummy upset and was wondering if there was any chance my 14 week old could catch it through Breastfeeding? Thanks x

    Do not let her sleep tgrough yet. Lilia slept 8 hrs a night from 4 weeks old and wouldnot dream feed or wake to feed. My milk started deteriating from that moment.

    Hey ppl I had a bad breast feeding experience with my daughter (now 19 months) and had to stop when she was 4 months. It was akin to starvation.

    I’m due in 5-days. Is that too early test??

  • rubes replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 1 year, 7 months ago

    I *possibly* ovulated on the 3rd, but didn’t do the deed until the 4th. 6 dpo, I woke up with intense period cramp, and when I went to the toilet and wiped, there was literally like 2 spots of blood. Since then, I have experienced slight nausea and bloating and tiredness (but not overly so, like I was when I concieved DD) and today I have been…[Read more]

    We’re getting around 6+ dirty/wet nappies a day, I think. Milk regulation is a possibility. She just seems hungrier then normal, but, then again, she wasn’t feeding as much or as often yesterday, so maybe she’s making up for it today?? She also uses my boob for comfort, and I didn’t like the idea of this, so questioned my midwife about this. She…[Read more]

    My milk feels ‘different’. It feels as though I’ve suddenly stopped producing enough. It feels like the baby just isn’t getting enough anymore. Does anyone know of ways to increase my milk supply?? Thanks, ladies. x

    I always wanted to breastfeed for a year (well, express into a sippy-cup at 6-months, completely off breast-milk by 1-year), but everyone kept telling how much it hurts, etc. To be honest, it doesn’t hurt. It did when my milk come in, but that was because she became too demanding with it (thankfully, that’s settled down). My nipples were soar and…[Read more]

    Thanks. 😀 I was thinking of offering one breast til she keeps pulling away, offering second breast til she keeps pulling away. Then giving a couple of oz of formula to help bulk up my skinny minnie. I think alternate feedings would confuse me. Would that work, you think?

  • rubes replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 7 months ago

    No nipple confusion here. Lilia’s 6-weeks-old now, and this last week, she seems to have lost her latch. The only explaination ANYONE can give me, is that I am suddenly not producing enough milk… Any advice?? Thanks.

    Also get this even though I ‘failed’ im still producing lol

    My first craving (only a one-time craving) was washing powder. I didn’t eat it. I didn’t need to eat it. It just smelt DELICIOUS!! Then it was vinegar. From very early pregnancy until about 11-weeks, I craved chili (imagine a pizza with about two inches of chili sauce ontop of it!). Then the cravings stopped. The next craving was frozen chips…[Read more]

    Thanks. I usually get really slippy discharge RIGHT before a period begins (for aout 3-days before), so is it possible my ovulation is now later then it used to be (pre-pregnancy, I’d ovulate about 2-weeks before my period was due)?? It sounds really confusing!!
