Hi, I’m exclusively breastfeeding my baby and the doctor gave me vitamin D supplement to give her 1mL a day, she just turned 4 months. Just wondered if anyone else was given vitamin D for baby. The doctor says breast milk lacks vitamin D...
I was induced so that I could have my baby early due to my SO being diagnosed with cancer. I wanted to make sure that he was there for the delivery of our baby girl. But my milk supply hasn’t produced much yet and my baby girl isn’t eating a lot. Is there anything I can take or eat so that I can produce more milk?
I really need to wean my 2 year old. She relies too much on nursing especially for nap. She can only nap for 40 mins or so and would need me to hold her for another hour. I am so done with it. She is exclusively breastfeeding from birth and has a strong association. She drinks a bit of milk from a small glass cup. I'm not sure if she accepts bottles.
My son will be turning 1 soon and I have been trying to give him cows milk. I tried bottle/sippy cup, hot/cold, added a little bit of sugar or home made date paste to make it sweeter. Nothing works. He will spit it back out. He is exclusively breastfed and never took a bottle. I am so ready to wean him off. Desperate for suggestions... thanks.
With him we dropped the most easily distractible nursing’s until it was just overnight, then would tell him ‘all gone’ after a short nursing, then replaced with milk and then water... We also had the deadline of new baby coming. He was 16mo. Our daughter can’t seem to get over the morning nursing (we’ve dropped and she’s okay without boob to fall asleep) and can’t call back asleep with her hand... More
Hi - my baby turned 1 this month. I have been breastfeeding and pumping, no formula. A month ago, we started mixing in whole milk. She did great. At daycare, she’s now fully on whole milk - no more pumping! She does however still nurse once in the middle of the night (5am) and again when she wakes up (8am). How can we get out of this habit? And what do you give your >1 year old babies when t... More
My 7mo baby eats solids 2-3 times a day. She is EBF .. so she drinks less milk than before , i mean before she used to drink for 30 mins.. now she drinks for 15 mins n sometimes even less than that.. i feed her milk first and solids after that so that she drinks milk more.. but its still the same.. but her weight growth seems very good..
Hi all! Just wondering if any mamas have experienced anovulation (not ovulating at all or regularly) WITH menstrual bleeding while you continued to breastfeed beyond 18 months? My son is nearly 18 months and my cycles have still not returned to normal. I am seeing my doctor regarding this issue but wondered if anyone else has ever had this happen. Thanks!
I try to make sure she eats some solids before bed so her tummy is full but she still wants boob when it’s time to settle down. Then maybe 10 mins in she’s fast asleep. How do I break the association without making her cry it out.
So I have a 3 month old and I nurse her during the night when she wakes up to get her back to sleep. The problem is I’m losing my milk supply. I’ve seen a lactation consultant and I’ve had to start supplementing with formula because my baby wasn’t gaining enough weight. I’m able to pump about 2 oz or less every two hours out of one side and about 1/2 oz out of the other. I’m taking sooo many su... More
I’m 5 days post c-section and seriously struggling. My baby is a great eater and my milk came in on day 2 so I should feel incredibly lucky, however, she has a very painful latch so I need to use a nipple shield, which is annoying, I struggle to find comfortable breastfeeding positions that don’t hurt my incision and I’m just. So. Tired. I am lucky enough to have help from my husband and family... More
Hi everyone, I have a 21-months-old toddler, still breastfeeding but does not take breast milk in a bottle or cup (I hear this is common for toddlers) nor as a popsicle. I have some frozen breast milk from pumping on a trip, and would like to use it for her. Before I go through the trouble of baking with breast milk or making other things, I'd love to hear if there's a reasonable chanc... More
