    LeslieAnn, I'm not sure what kind of pump you are using but there are many models and forms available for breast pump. Have you looked into others or spoken with the lactation consultant about your continued discomfort?

  • Forum Reply: Re: Bowel Movement/5 week old formula fed

    I had similar issues with my youngest. I think we tried four different formulas before we found one that worked with her digestive system. But then, constipation has always been an issue for her, too. So I think it was a matter of finding what worked best for her and dealing with the underlying issue...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Sams Club not accepting $5 check/coupon?

    It would be nice if the retailers knew of the problems customers were having that they would change their system - instead of sending checks they should send prepaid cards or actual coupons - not third party checks. I will just start using them - I hope there won't be too many problems.

    From what I could tell from various research, the use of multiple formulas is generally discouraged since it could upset the GI system of babies. However, if a baby's system could handle it and not be upset, any other issues?

    Just wanted to share a frightening experience. As a new mom, everything seems frightening but a smile.

I asked the doctor...

    I bottle feed my baby and she always falls asleep during her night feedings. I want her to finish the bottle because I know she is hungry but don't want to stimulate her so much that she is awake for hours after the feeding.

  • Forum Reply: Re: Feeling Judged

    I too, planned to exclusively breastfeed. It seemed like when I was pregnant, many older women criticized my decision to breastfeed (especially my MIL who believed the baby would starve!).
