Was going to give up before I read this! Thank you

Hello there, I referred to your website earlier morning yesterday. Came across it through google search.

I'd a lot of difficulty in feeding my 2 weeks old baby. And I was really planning to give up, when I thought there really may be a way to breastfeed while ling down.

That's what I googled and came across your site.

It really, really help me understand the concept of a good latch, and the attachment palate. I can see the difference in the ease of between me and baby in just one day.

Thanks for the help. Before that, feeding times have been more like tug of war between us.

Words can't thank you enough. But still i have to use them. Take care. A lot of prayers for u and the baby.
Love, M

This article helped me so much. When my daughter was two weeks old, I talked to a nurse about how often and how much she was spitting up. Her advice was to limit the amount I was feeding her to 10 minutes on each side per feeding, so I did.

I would pump for a few minutes before her first feeding in the morning and she was happy for most of the day. But as time went on, I noticed how cranky she was at night, and she would cry with each bowel movement.

I would call the advice nurse line and we were treating her for gas, diaper rash, reflux, and someone even suggested she had colic. It was frustrating because I knew she was uncomfortable, but I didn't know how to fix it.

At 7.5 weeks, I learned about foremilk hindmilk imbalance and all of our issues made sense! she wasn't fussy in the morning because she was getting enough hindmilk because I was pumping the foremilk. Thank you for this article. I have a much happier baby because of it!

This website has given me the confidence and peace of mind about pumping exclusively. I was having problems with very painful breastfeeding from the day my baby was born.

We saw a lactation consultant, and I was willing to try everything to make breastfeeding work, but after many feedings where I cried the whole time due to pain, I realized that it was not good for my baby or for myself. I was not enjoying that bonding time with my baby, instead dreading it, crying, and wincing the whole time. This website has made me feel like I'm still doing what's best for my baby and not like a failure for having to pump or even supplement with formula when pumping isn't enough.

THANKS! I feel relieved. Great website with lots of useful information!

I've been looking and looking for information about my deformity and am glad to finally find a nice and clear explanation. With some added wikipedia work to get some details I can finally tell what's wrong with me.

Even though I'm not pregnant, and have nothing close to a child-wish I found this very informative and so is the rest of the pages I looked at. (just living curious you know)

Thanks for this article

by Zoe
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

My baby is now newly 6 months.

I had my first blocked duct recently, and had acupuncture done. 5 times, actually, within about a week's time frame (every other day). I used heat compresses, took a few warm showers, and tried to massage towards the center of the affected breast while baby fed or even while in the shower.

I also tried to take better care of myself - napped, tried to sleep more and eat a bit healthier.

I also began every feed using that breast - since babies feed the best at the beginning of a feed.

It was alarming to find that lump; my husband thought I had mastitis initially and I was a bit freaked by that.

I learned about worse case scenarios - ones that would require surgery.

~
That first lump disappeared, but today I felt "bruising" on my other breast. I took some extra cautionary steps, this article was wonderful to read and to keep in mind, and... I think the blocked ducts might have been successfully dealt with. The bruising/engorgement appear to be gone?

~
I'll happily start taking Lecithin if that will help.

Thanks for posting this useful and encouraging article!

Very helpful

I found this site and your information very helpful as a first time mum. When you're new to being a parent you never quite know what to expect. Your information gives you all the possible causes for an issue (in my case fore/hind milk imbalance) and Allows you to make a more informed decision relating to what you have been experiencing with your child.I left feeling more informed and more empowered as to how I could make adjustments to my feeding routines and help fix the problem.

Thank you kindly

I am so glad I found this page!

by Bri
(Colorado Springs)

I have PCOS. Poly cyst ovarian syndrome. My doctor told me that frankly, I was lucky to even get pregnant. (It was a one night stand, so it was a miracle honestly).

I gave birth to my son but he had swallowed some fluid and stuff at birth so I could only see him for a few minutes before they rushed him to the nursery. The nurses found out I have PCOS and told me(the first time I even heard it could be a problem) that there was a possibility I couldn't produce any milk. They instructed me to pump every time I fed. And I did. Like it was my religion.

I took him home and kept pumping and feeding him but I noticed my son was losing weight after the first week, so I went to a breastfeeding group at the hospital and found out that I was producing 8ml at a feeding. (30 ml is an ounce). My son needed at least 2 ounces a feeding. I broke down crying.

Everyone had drilled into me while I was pregnant that breastfeeding was it. Breastfeeding breastfeeding breastfeeding. All the time, from everyone. So I felt so guilty about feeding him formula. I wanted to breastfeed my son so badly, even without the incredible pressure. It broke my heart when I found out I couldn't. I still pumped and tried to feed him, but now, I can't produce anything more than a tiny drop.

So, yes. There is such a thing as a woman unable to breastfeed. I am living proof. The doctor told me I will never be able to produce enough milk for any of my future children either.

At last I have found answers

by Diane
(London United Kingdom)

Hi, my son was premature. As everyone knows, breast is best and therefore this is what I needed to do, to give him the best start.

He was in the hospital for over a month and I had the best support and guidance in breastfeeding my baby.

We are now at home and I noticed at night he grunted a lot, I was told this is what prem babies do.

He is feeding frequently, but was gaining weight which was the whole aim and we thought we were on the right path.

However, with every feed, he brings deposits up plus milk. He is also showing signs of colic.

Today I have found the answers on your website and understand now about foremilk and hindmilk.

I will now able to limit my baby's discomfort and hopefully get a more settled baby. Thank you.

Its a shame hospitals don't pay any attention to articles like

Its a shame hospitals don't pay any attention to articles like this as they end up giving new mum bad advice then send them home after a few days not having a clue and then the new mum gets all stressed out which is no good for mum or baby

Doctors and hospitals regarding breastfeeding
by: Hope

Hi Lynda

I agree with you. I found out the other day, here in South Africa, doctors are only given a half hour training session on breastfeeding! No wonder that there is not enough support out there!

I was appalled when I went to the clinic, each time I would go, I would get some negative remark about breastfeeding from the nurse! Once she told me to wean my 1 1/2 year old, coz breastfeeding can ruin her teeth, if she breastfeeds at night!! Another one, "your baby should not be breastfeeding still, she will not eat enough solid"

They really have no clue!

I wish I had read this before

by Momma Lily
(LA, CA)

Hi there,

I'm a new mom of a 7 month old. I had a very hard to breast feeding...bloody/sore nipples at the beginning. So I pumped for the first 2-3 weeks (I would try to breast-feed every week and my nipples would get very bloody and sore again). So the lactation clinic at my doctor's suggested, I pump for about a week and try to breast feed again.

My supply started off great (50-65 ml per breast) but by Month 2 it went all the way down to 5-10ml per breast, if that. Of course, I had to rely on formula to feed my baby. I tried a number of home remedies that my mom told me about to no avail. I also drank Mother's Milk tea. Nothing worked so I gave up by Month 3.

My son is now 7 months old and I still think back to those days when I tried to breastfeed him. It still weighs heavily on me, although my son is very healthy and happy, I would have loved to have breast-fed him until at least 6 or 7 months, but would have tried for a full year! I wish I had come across your website before. I will ingrain fenugreek in my mind for future reference or to recommend to any mom I know who is struggling.

Question: is it too late to try fenugreek now (at 7 months) to start produding milk again? What is the latest a mom can try to produce/increase milk supply?

For my second baby, I'll be sure to use all your advice. Thank you!

So helpful

I am so relieved to hear these experiences from other mothers. I've felt like such a failure as a mother. I too tried breast feeding and pumping in an attempt to produce enough milk.

My breasts were so sore and tender as I was nursing for 90 minutes at a time and still trying to pump. I got no sleep since my baby would nurse for so long and stay awake screaming from hunger. At the advice of my pediatrician I began supplementing with formula and then eventually began feeding her formula exclusively at 6 weeks.

In my attempt to find the best formula for her needs I was bombarded with what felt like lectures telling me how breastfeeding is best. No articles mentioned how some mothers may not have the option!

With every article I would feel more and more disappointed and depressed about my inability to produce food and nourishment for my baby girl.

I'm so thankful to know that other moms have the same struggle and I'm happy to say my little girl is doing great!

by Corinna

Thank you finally an informative and useful- resourceful website.

This isn't my first time parenting, but it has been 16 years since the last one.

The nurses and their info at the hospital is still generic and suited for the ideal Mom that doesn't exist.

I just needed some suggestions for my over active letdown. And this website is a great resource.

Of course mine doesn't settle after 6 months- it just keeps going.

Thank you again!

One million naira problem solved!

by Moses O. Daniel
(Akure, Ondo State, Nigeria.)





Initially, we (my wife and I) thought it was infection that makes our baby, Emmanuel, to cry painfully pulling his legs upwards towards his body and forming a fist with his hands most of the times.

He usually folds himself while asleep. We became very worried, sympathetic and empathetic. Consequently, we opted to contact our nurse/midwife who referred us to the specialist doctor. Contrary to what we expected of the test result, the doctor said 'there`s no problem with the boy'.

We came back home with mixed feelings-happy but worried. Then, we decided to browse the internet on the matter. Wow! We eventually discovered this site specifically addressing our current problem and giving ALL the answers to our curiosities.

The most calming suggestion which happened to be the first in the list is what I quote here: 'Give it time to pass. All babies have immature digestive systems in the beginning and no matter what you do, baby will still have some gassiness'. This suggestion has solved a one million naira problem!

I thank you for being there for us. I love this site. Bravo! to the website maintenance team. My baby shall be a doctor like you in Jesus name, amen. Thank you once again.

Breastfeeding Documentary

by Liz
(UK)

Hi all,

I hope you are all well and don't mind me posting here, but I am making a documentary on breastfeeding for Discovery, and I'm keen to speak to mums and dads with interesting stories. We're based in the UK, but are looking for stories worldwide.

Areas we are interested in include:

* cross-nursing / wet-nursing - why is this unfashionable when it can open up so much choice for working mums?

* non-birthing lactation - e.g. ladies who have used surrogates or adopted, or same-sex parents who share the nursing

* milk sharing / donating - both informal and more 'regulated'

* ladies who are struggling with reconciling the dual purpose of their breasts as both sensual and nurturing parts of their bodies

If you have anything to add, please get in touch. There is no expectation of filming unless you want to share your story more widely - it's just research for now.

Thanks!

Liz
