Breast Feeding / Re: I need a quick answer pls
« Last post by MasynSpencerElliotte on January 18, 2018, 00:12:36 am »
Ok so has been a few years since I bf but I know with DD2 and DD3 to a smaller extent I ended up block feeding due to OALD and fore/hind milk imbalance. DD2 I basically ended up feeding from one side for a few feeds in a row before switching. Also wondering abouy a growth spurt? Cannot remember are they around 2/4/6 weeks of age in general?

Breast Feeding / Re: I need a quick answer pls

She is just over a month old. I know pumping doesnt show how much the baby gets but I've pumped a few days ago and got more. My breasts felt engored and heavy than, today it was the oposite.
Yes, fast letdown is an issue we've been working to fix. I started feeding one side per feed, but I ofer the second one just in case she is hungry, sometimes she takes if some times not.
Her food is green for almost two weeks with strings and mucus. Her pead told me to give her probioics and that helped with the strings but her poo is still green with mucus. I'm dairy free for 3 weeks now. I was thinking it had to do with oversuply, foremilk hind milk imbalabce or intolerance. We are waiting till monday to see if it gets better.
I decided to take her in my bed and feed her every time she wakes. She uses to wake every 3h now it's 1-2h. Hoping we can get some rest and she is not hungry. We'll see how it goes

How old is she? Pumping really gives no indication of what a baby takes at the breast - I had oversupply all 3 times I bg and I could barely pump unless it was first thing in the morning and I was super engorged I would get a few oz.

Does your milk always let down fast?

Night Wakings / Re: 10 week old Wakes every hour after bedtime routine

Heís 11 weeks tomorrow so not quite 3 months yet. Iíll try the feeding right before 10/11 and see if that helps! Do you think itís still hunger if heís waking up every 3 hours at night?

The back and forth improvements are typical at his age - but the fact that heís mostly falling asleep on his own is amazing!  The little accomplishments are huge at this stage!  At 4 mo the, there is a fairly huge growth spurt - are you about there?  That could be the cause of your current wakings at night.  If youíre getting a wake up at a somewhat predictable time in that 10//11 range, you might try feeding him about 10 minutes before - sometimes that will keep them from waking up at that point.

Hope she settles soon for you x

Ah ok... she wouldnít have slept at 3pm.... she would have needed more wake time after that nap, so it would have been 4pm or later and then weíd have been looking at an 8:30-9pm BT.

Instead I did a 6:15 BT though and itís been AWFUL. She slept for an hour then wouldnít settle. Iíve been in bed with her for 2.5hrs now and sheís only doing 20 min chunks and then waking screaming for half an hour.... very overtired baby and iím not looking forward to our night.

 Iím going to have to work out a new 2 nap schedule with a CN I think.

General Sleep Issues / Re: Baby waking at long period during night

Thanks for your reply!

We havenít given her any new solids recently but we think her top two teeth may be coming through, although weíve been thinking that for a while and still nothing!

She cries when I try and comfort her back to sleep and gets really cross but the tears stop as soon as I turn the light on and give up trying to get her back to sleep. The only thing that makes me think it isnít her teeth is that she doesnít have any problem with napping in the morning or going to bed at night. Would we have similar tears at these times if it was her teeth?

She was going through a bit of separation anxiety with me a few weeks ago so I wondered if it was because she wanted me to be with her but she has got a bit better with the separation anxiety thing recently. I did manage to get her to sleep for a further hour after she woke up a few days ago but I lay on my bed with her and let her breast feed to sleep which worked. I donít really want to get her into a habit of doing that though as weíve not long got out of it and Iím going back to work soon so I have tried not to do that again although it is tempting if it means she gets the rest she needs!

Night Wakings / Re: Shh pat for NW
« Last post by SNSmith on January 17, 2018, 20:35:39 pm »
Ok thanks very much! So if she begins waking more frequently in the night than 3-4 hrs should I shh pat so as not to create a dependence on me to go back to sleep?

20min naps can be related to pain - if she's inconsolable, I'd be looking for something that may be causing her pain. Have you introduced a new solid food recently?
They can also be from overstimulation but usually if that's the case, LO's are up and really ready to play at 20min, not crying inconsolably.

30-35min naps tend to be from overtiredness - her A time is reasonable though - it could be longer. Her routine looks good for a 6-7mo but she's taking a good first nap (I presume she is actually sleeping that 1.5hr?) so its reasonable to leave it as is.
