    i’m breastfeeding but i’m not sure if my baby is getting enough because sometimes she’s fussy while on the breast. we tried to supplement but she hates the bottle. so even pumping is no use to me because she refused to eat from the bottle even if it’s my milk. she doesn’t sleep through the night also. yesterday, she went to nursing strike, refused to eat and i really had to force her to eat…any advice?

    2ndtime- Check out this site from BabyCenter.com It’s a list of medication that is okay to take while nursing.

    When I get the formula samples in the mail (and I have no idea how I ended up on their list either) I take it into my baby group. Most of the girls there breastfeed, but many also supplement, so invariably, someone will take it. What gets me though, is that I got the first sample, then they called me a week later and wanted to know what I was feeding baby, I told them he was EBF, they congratulated me and told me how good I was doing, and then sent out more samples! What do they think, if they send enough samples, eventually I’ll try it? Sorry, not gonna happen….

    Lawson’smom – I checked on being a LC too, and geez! You are so right. They do have to jump through tons of hoops. But it definitely gives me confidence in them, if I ever run into any BF’ing problems you ladies can’t solve for me.

    lexi- there are all these crazy kinds of bottles out now days for the closest thing to the breast, less air, ect..i havent really gone far and tried them…i just stick with the old fashion playtex drop in bottles for when my EBF LO gets a bottle. altho i heard the tommy tippies work good…they are expensive…good luck!

    lauraoct – I know what you mean but at least I got my 2 yo and 6 mo on one nap together. I just got up from a nap. Do you have any friends or family near that can come watch one while you sleep with the other. Even if it is just for a little bit? It does help to have someone close that can watch a child. I did that a lot when Alex was really little. I used the recovery as an excuse and my SIL or MIL stayed with me a lot just to let me sleep. HAHA!

    mere-and-girl – I suggest buying the book. You can do half and half if you want. If you do true BLW then you would let her sit at the table. Around 5 months you can let her feel it. At 6 months they start having meals with you but you shouldn’t expect her to start actually eating right off the bat. She needs to learn how to get it into her mouth, chew and then swallow. This can take up to a month for some. But there are moms that do purees with it as well. Definately read the book.

    Thanks for the input dee. My husband isn’t really sold on the cloth diapers , but it’s not like it effects him he changes 1 diaper to every100 that I do. So we will be keeping disposables around for the odd occasion that he’s her primary caregiver. I’m saving our family a tremendous amount of money get on board!

    My baby is a month old and gets up at 2-3 times a night. usually 2am, 4am and 6am. I actually sleep on the couch. its easier than sleeping in my bedroom, even though I miss it so much. and thought she had her nights and days mixed up so I leave a light on at night and i think that has been helping her sleep more. I am so NERVOUS about going back to work, working from sometimes 7am to 6pm and not getting a full nights sleep. I am so worried about that 🙁

    Seuban- I’m a speech pathologist and often conduct feeding therapy. We always suggest hard spout cups with the valve removed. I prefer playtex personally. Good luck with this transition and don’t worry about a little choking! It’s a learning process for your baby.

    Leslie – I think the use of the OR there implies either one, but not both like Bri’s AND. However, if she’s 18 pounds at a year, and still comfy rear facing, it’s looking like it’s safer to just leave them rear facing. Zoey would be DELIGHTED to turn around though! lol. However, since she usually passes out in the car, I’m a little worried that when she does get to turn around, she’ll be too interested in the world and the rides will no longer be restful for her! On busy days, I count on her vehicle naps to take place of real naps.

    The reason my screen name is what it is is b/c my dad nicknamed me fatbaby when I was a baby. He still calls me Fatty. Anyhow, when I started college the slang for cool was Phat so I used that and 57 for the year my dad was born. I like it and it has sentimental value. Also got me my first lab job interveiw b/c they just had to know what a ‘phatbaby’ looked like. HA!
