    caybaby-Honestly…lose the bottle. A fussy baby is normal. A baby that hits, pushes, pinches..basically messes with breast is normal. You will be fine but its a fight you want to fight. Be more stubborn than baby.

    Bri-You and I can pitch in and hire a potty training person together! I’m in the same boat as you…the last hurdle…and it feels like its HUGE! My son is basically scared of the toilet-the big one AND his little potty chairs. So until he’s over that I’m screwed!

    Jessica-if i may-i would change your statement of ‘shake bottle gently’….I was always taught to swirl like a fine wine. If i’m wrong please let me know.

    Kelley-my lo went last thursday and then finally did yesterday…thats 4 days inbetween..and man ol man it was a ton and stinky!!! So just be on the look out and call your doc if your worried.

    Chellebob-my lo does that too..i have found that taking them off the boob and then giving back stops it but only temporary. Its still a bit painful…[Read more]

    I’m gonna brag for a minute..i ate the oatmeal for the first time at 10 am today and i just pumped an extra ounce this time with no problem..and it seems my letdown came faster…don’t know if its due to the oatmeal or the increase in fenugreek pills..I added 3 more pills a day to my intake…now i’m at 12 a day…still not really smelling like…[Read more]

    I have been put on an antibiotic and was wondering if any of you had to take amoxicillin while bf and what were the side effects on your lo and did it lower your supply?

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

    I did ‘try’ it but didn’t like the taste so i haven’t stuck with it…i hear it works well with some and not with others.

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

    Over-the-moon…if you can..spend as much skin on skin time you can with your lo..thats helps up your production. Fermented oatmeal is a big help with me (1 cup steel cut oats/1 cup water..soak at least 7 hours..heat and eat-add things to make taste better) and tons and tons and tons and tons of water! Bm is made up of mostly water so if you…[Read more]

    Jessica-they did that with all 3 of my kids….i only had to supplement with the last 2 (first one was formula from the minute he was born) cause they were bf. They told me it breaks down the billirubin alot faster…but they waited until my kids levels were in the late 20’s till they did that and once they were down past a level of 14 then i was…[Read more]

    My lil lady takes bottle just fine. Did from day 5 and has ever since. I started out with the playtex drop ins but have since switched her bottles to the Nuk bottles. She has bm bottles thru the day while i’m at work and only me when i’m at home. She has had no problems with nipple confusion. In fact all my kids had no problems going back and forth.

    FYI: Pumping does NOT tell you how much you make. Your breasts are not storage containers-they are milk factories and constantly are making milk. While baby is nursing they are busily making more. Babies that get the bottle are wanting the faster flow and gets frusterated at the slower flow that boobs give. Best advice-stop giving bottles.…[Read more]

    Petskies-i have to tell you…my first 2 kids (both boys) were bottle feeders. They were both preemies and the first one the hospital whisked away and fed him a bottle before i was even able to see him..i had a baaaad delivery..the second one had to be supplemented with formula at about a week old…he decided thats what he wanted and my milk…[Read more]

    jpeanut-my lo is at 7.5 weeks and i’m still holding her and the boob…i think that is totally normal until the baby can hold head better.

    npreg2-i use a Medela Pump In Style and love it. I rented the Symphony from the hospital for a month to give my pumping output a boost and get my nips ready for daily pumping. Some love manual pumps…but it all depends on what your gonna use it for. If your going back to work..look into electric dual pumps…if its one to keep around house or…[Read more]

    Thanks for all the answers to my many questions today ladies! What would i do without you!?!?!?!

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

    Oh and if your more comfy try laying down with lo to feed. You will get the positioning down eventually but stay calm and keep trying to get baby to latch.
