ekubo replied to topic Baby seems unhappy breast feeding prefers bottle

that's a shame Tam03. I suppose someone has to draw the short straw. I hope it works out differently for you next time too, bf is a wonderful experience once you've worked out the kinks. I've fed t...

this really is sad. I don't want to sound like I'm second guessing or judging you as I really don't know your situations but what you're describing is perfectly normal bf behaviour. Babies around t...

ekubo replied to topic "The talk"

'the talk' is intimidating and embarassing for all concerned. Just start making it an open line of communication. Something that you bring up regularly, so you all become desensitised so to speak. ...

sharynd+2 you sound p1ssed off and snarky. Is that intended? Never can tell on these forums. Look if you had probs bf I have all the sympathy in the world for you. But although I don't want to trea...

ekubo replied to topic small fontanelle (ant) closed early

kids' fontanelles don't all close at exactly the same age, there's a range during which time most kids will close. Some will be earlier than others, some will be later. You know your run of the mil...

ekubo replied to topic Starting solids early?!?

I've been reading recently that a number of paediatric dieticians are now considering formula to be a form of solids. In fact anything other than human breast milk and water is being put into that ...

ekubo replied to topic Is My Milk Drying Up?

my ds was born the day before yours and I don't get any of those any more either. Perfectly normal and certainly not a indication of loosing your milk. This is my 3rd, I bf my first for 18 mnths, m...

ekubo replied to topic small fontanelle (ant) closed early

my second son's fontenelles closed early. In fact he had the oddest shape head, flat up the back with two little dimples in it and a ridge down the middle of his forehead. We were sent to the gp an...

ekubo replied to topic Fennell Tea

I used fennel seed capsules rather than the tea. It worked a treat. Most of our probs were due to a fast let down so I would let it run a little before putting him on too.

ekubo replied to topic can you overfeed on formula??

it's not about satifying their hunger, weight gain or how much their wee tummies can hold but about how much their immature digestive systems can process. Formula puts a strain on them that bm does...

they most certainly can over feed on formula. Too much puts a lot strain on their little kidneys and can cause big probs. If your babe is genuinely hungry you could investigate the formulas designe...

ekubo replied to topic Just out of curiousity...

I believe your milk changes in favour of the needs of the newborn. My boys are all three + years apart so fed for two years then short break before becoming preggie again. Never had the need to fee...

It's lovely of him to offer but I'd stick with the bf. If you're serious about bf then supplementing is the top of a slippery slope. Another thing to consider is that formula is an artificial food....

ekubo replied to topic baby fall asleep while feeding!

the amount of milk that a woman stores in her breasts between feeds varies dramatically, and some store very little at all. This doesn't mean that they can't bf successfully but usually does mean t...

I've had three drug free water births. I think it's worth the effort too, if you can manage it. Of course it's painful but I found it a purposeful kind of pain, if that makes any sense, that I coul...

on average boys are slower than girls in language development. But the thing about averages is that if you have two arms you're above the average. They're not all that meaningful unless you're look...
