    Lawson, if I were in your position, I would toss the bottles. Sounds drastic, but with Lawson showing the preference for the bottle (because its less work) I would do away with them. Do you have some extra time off this weekend because of the holiday? If so then the timing is perfect. Take advantage of this time off and keep offering the breast over and over and over again. If you have to supplement at all, use a medicine syringe or a cup to do it. After this weekend is up and you have to head back to work 🙁 use sippy cups instead of bottles if at all possible. Right now she just knows that if she throws a big enough fit you will give in and give her the bottle. However, if you don’t give her the bottle, she wont let herself starve either. 🙂 Good luck!

    Styx, I was thinking as well after going to bed last night. Do you ever go to North Bend? North Bend is like baby central! HAHA! There’s probably 8 kids outlet stores there….including StrideRite. Another place to get them a little cheaper.

    Mileysmommy08 – My question is why so late!! You must be in pain! Alex has his clipped at 6 days. He was so bad that he couldn’t stick out his tongue at all. The skin went right to the tip. It tore my nipples up. Holy Cow, I couldn’t wait that long. And the only reason we wait 6 days is cause we knew something was wrong but didn’t find out until day 3 at a post appointment with a nurse/LC. Then we couldn’t get into the doctor until three days later. Ugh! Get it done now.

    Don’t think they have that shop in the UK. Will try a few shops thanks. No idea why my supply has dipped last 2 days. Never had supply problems before with either child. Slightly worried

    styx – I liked ice cream. I tried maple syrup but it was still too chewy for me. I think the ice cream breaks it up a bit.

    mere-and-girl – I couldn’t find it. I know they do a yearly one. I found pictures from the PI of it back in 07 but nothing. I wonder if it’s not going on this year for some reason?

    wow, momofcash- that is scary! if you are very, very concerned you could go to the ER. Do you have cracked nipples? Is it just your nipples bleeding? I’m so sorry that that is happening to you, and i imagine that you are terrified. I wish i had something better to say to you, but i’m not familiar in this area. just saying that i am praying for you!

    I’ve heard of brandy on the gums for teething although that is highly NOT recommended but not for sleep. Sounds like she wanted to get her drunk which for somone that tiny would only need a few drops. Ugh! I don’t understand what goes through some people’s brains sometimes.

    scarlet – Congrats and hmmmmph! Lol. Zoey just screams when she’s on her tummy. She hasn’t really realized there’s anything she can do about it. She’s also a bit chunkier than sweet Alyssa. LOL. Zoey kinda surfs on her belly with her arms and legs kicking about. She can’t quite figure out that she needs to get that big ol’ belly off the ground.

    Lately it seems like Carter isn’t eating as much. He eats for a few minutes then gets fussy and won’t latch….sometimes he’s even crying when he is on the breast. This is all new as he was draining a breast every meal in about 8-10 minutes. Should I be worried? He still has the right amount of diapers. Also should I be pumping everytime it feels like he didn’t drain me?

    Well ladies I just have to celebrate for a min. I made it to the 1 month mark breastfeeding 🙂 with my first 2 I quit or gave up in a matter of a week with my first and week 2 with my son I am so excited and we are still doing really good no issues maybe its because Im older and wiser and have more patience but I love the feeling that I feed him I give him comfort and its something that makes me feel closer to him I LOVE THIS The only thing I hate is the fact I have only been breastfeeding no bottles hes had only 2 and thats because I had a celebration drink after coming home from the hospital but I go back to work this weekend so I lose 8 hrs with him:( its really upsetting me I dont know if its normal or hormones but I feel like Im taking away from him I almost cry every time I think about it IS THAT NORMAL?????????also I feel extremely possessive of him like his dad cant do anything like I find reasons to take him away anyone else do this
