    Megs~ How often are you taking it and what is your dose?


    Are they just normal oats you can buy in a supermarket?



    To add on the ‘fussy time’ conversation- Think about it as their ‘exercise time’ 🙂 they’re exercising their lungs lol. White noise worked well to soothe my kids too. My son loved the bathroom fan! My daughter is soothed by the dishwasher. (Obviously if there is another problem like thrush then this is moot).


    They don’t do hep b, chicken pox or roto virus in thUK



    noah colts mommy – Ask the doctor, some don’t even allow you to do it. My boys don’t cry during shots because of the ‘numbing’ effect that breastfeeding gives.



    scarlet-it’s not easy, but it’s doable.


    lauraoct – I’m not sure what it is. She’s just on the cusp of reaching 6 months so I think it’s a growth spurt (which is another reason I’d rather nurse than pump when she wakes up). I figure her suckling stimulation will work better to increase supply than a pump would. Still… if I forego pumping and she doesn’t wake up then I lose those extra 4-5oz I’m able to get at night. Her pedi told me not to let her get under 24oz. I think she gets that much already in her meals, but nursing… IDK? Unless I weigh her after every meal… I don’t have a scale. So now I’m wondering if I’m giving her too much solids and she’s not nursing like before, maybe that’s hurting my supply? It’s hard to tell as sometimes she eats really good other times not so much. Honestly, I feel like I make one excuse after another with every new idea I come up with but I’m not doing it to make excuses. I sincerely have a lot of concerns with the way she’s eating right now. My goal is to create a good balance between her BM and solids and have enough milk for her to not give her formula ever. And that’s where having to go to work and pump really screws me up. Ok Ok… rant over. I keep telling myself it’ll all work out somehow. I have to keep at it and hopefully in a week or two her growth spurt will be over and we can settle into a good routine. Sorry to be so annoying about all this!!! Sorry if I’m not making too much sense right now… I’m working on maybe 4 hours of sleep. =\



    So the splash park was fun although Chris didn’t like being splashed! Silly child was telling on the sprinklers that were hitting him. Alex loved it. He would sit under the water and laugh. I am glad we are now home though. I’m exhausted but Alex fell asleep in the car so he isn’t up for sleeping with his brother. Ugh! So, he’s harrassing my chinchillas while I’m typing. I thought to lay down with him and see if he fell asleep…nope! He rolled around, tried to crawl off the bed, climb the wall and then found my hair. Hubby said he was going to see about getting off early today. Hopefully! Then maybe I can get a nap in. I wish I wasn’t so darn tired today. Grr!



    Danny goes poo about every 7 days fills 2 diapers than its another week. I was in denial the second time around being preg I wasn’t feelin good than it hit me when was my period ha ha I was a week late then just knew what was going on lol no ms the second time the first time I was throwing up 10 times a day



    Ummm I’m new in here? I’m breastfeeding and supplementing a little bit.. My baby boy is almost 5 wks and strains alot like he has to poop and it make me feel awful 🙁 I’ve tried EBF and it didn’t seem to help any.. He does have alot of BM so just wondering if anyone had any suggestions..



    a bit of science behind soaking oats..which it turns out is different from fermented oats…….’All grains contain phytic acid (an organic acid in which phosphorous is bound) in the outer layer or bran. Untreated phytic acid can combine with calcium, magnesium, copper, iron especially zinc in the intestinal track and block their absorption. This is why a diet high in unfermented whole grains may led to serious mineral deficiencies and bone loss. The modern misguided practice of consuming large amounts of unprocessed bran often improves colon transit time at first but may lead to irritable bowel syndrome and, in the long term, many other adverse effects. Soaking allows enzyme, lactobacilli and other helpful organisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid. As little as seven hours of soaking in warm acidulated water will neutralize a large portion of phytic acid in grains. The simple practice of soaking cracked or rolled cereal grains overnight will vastly improve their nutritional benefits.’



    thanks for the info on roadtripping. I threw the idea of going overnight with my DH but he really wasn’t up for it. I might try and push the idea again. HA! I do plan on doing most feedings but thought it might be a good idea to have a bottle on hand in case we are in a spot where there is nowhere to stop and she melts down. I would like to do the trip in 2 days because I am realize its going to take longer than we would like and thats a LONG time in the car. i’m just glad she does really well in the car!



    Thanks for the time help Bri. I had to work so I pumped quite often for my first baby for a year but that was back in 2007 and I am a SAHM now and I have forgotten everything that has to do with pumping.



    Mine took 5 days to come in!



    I hope that no one boycotts this site! I know it wasn’t good what Laura said, but we have to remember that there are still people here to help, and we still have questions ourselves! I love all of you guys! Don’t go!! hahaha I’ve been here for 13 months and it just keeps getting better with all the moms coming in all the time.
