    EllasMommy23 – Not always. Think of it this way, do you poo every day, always. Sometimes babies can go a day or two. If your baby is not happy then it could be something she ate but until then I would wait a couple more days. If it’s become a week then call your ped. They might suggest some apple juice or stimulation. A tummy massage can’t hurt either. Might make her happy too. We massage our boys, even my 2-yr old because they enjoy it and it helps with digestion.

    Bouza, what does the dermatitis look like? My DD has little tiny bumps all over her neck and now her face. They aren’t red, just bumpy, so not sure what they are.

    *wyatts*mommy–I had a vaginal delivery and barely bled at all right after giving birth up to about 8 days. Then I started bleeding bright red blood, i would say fairly moderately, until around 10 weeks or so. I was told it has to do with activity level/lifting stuff…if you’re more active you can start bleeding again at any point. But i didn’t see that i was doing anything differently. I think we all just heal differently… Kickerboxerbaby–hmmm. I don’t like the sound of that. Sounds like it is pretty heavy…are you passing clots? Just wondering because of the colour… I haven’t had a period yet (11months pp) so i’m not sure if they are heavier the first time around. The thing that concerns me is that you said it is so painful. Like more than a regular period painful (i.e. doubled-over type pain)?? It’s probably nothing but I would go get checked out (particularly if you are passing a lot of clots) if it doesn’t get lighter in a day or so. Feel better hun!

    HannahKay – I don’t have time to make a real comment but I would tell her that she is no longer allowed to hold or even see my child until she learns to keep her mouth shut. I’m so upset that she would treat you and your daughter that way. Ahhh! Ok, I’ll be back. Hang in there honey.

    phatbaby57 – Has anything changed in your life? New routine, sleeping longer at night, etc. Babies not only nurse for food but for comfort. If something has changed recently he may need those extra feeds. Or he could be growing again.

    god-iva -The term bed-sharing isn’t used too much anymore. Most that say that they co-sleep means baby is in bed with them but technically that just means in the same room. Stats on SIDS is the same if they are in a crib in your room or their own

    ashraesy – I do agree with deeyore486 that kellymom is a very useful site that contains alot of good information. However, it is important to know that there are other good sources that offer useful information as well that may have conflicting answers. Which advice do you listen to is the question. I’m only saying this because, for example, ivillage.com gives a calculation pertaining to the weight of your baby and states clearly that it is only a ROUGH ESTIMATE as each baby is different and to really try to follow the hunger cues. As you know from kellymom, on the other hand, states that far and wide 1 – 1.5 oz per hour is the norm for all babies no matter what weight, age, etc. Obviously this is conflicting information. I point this out only because I think it is probably in your baby’s best interest that you ask a lc or a pediatrician who is an expert on breastfeeding as well. I do know personally of a couple of babies who were underfed and failure to thrive from receiving too little expressed breastmilk and I just had to tell you this in good conscience. I also realize that a baby can be overfed with the bottle too, so it must be difficult figuring out the exact right amount. I am not trying to scare you at all, but just want you to know this just in case as I think it is so important for you to ask an expert, and/or ultimately do what you think is right and follow your gut on her hunger cues.

    slatts, i look down on moms who are too lazy, or dont want to ruin their boobs by breastfeeding, that dont even try, and think that it is wierd or sexual to breastfeed. I planned and tried to breastfeed my first child but she would not latch, the lactation consultants tried for hours. So i ended up pumping exclusively for 6 weeks, and had to stop when i went back to work since they would only let me pump on my 30 min. lunch break. so i had to give her formula. I felt like a failure, but I did try and you did try so that is what counts. As soon as my son was born I told the nurses after they bundle him up i want to try and breastfeed him and he latched on with no problems and he is going to be 11 months and I couldnt imagine not having the sweet bonding of breastfeeding with him. I hope that you will be successful this time around.

    logansmom419 – You can buy bigger shields. Is it a medela? They carry different sizes.

    dixie- you will probably stay at the cup size you are during pregnancy. for me I was a 38d before pregnancy and during pregnancy and nursing a 42 dd.
