Hello Kathy,


I nursed my first two daughters with no problems.

Hello :) Obviously not Kathy but had a few questions that may help her/us help you...


when you say diaper count was low, is that for full 24 hr period?


Have you thought about giving extra milk in a cup vs spoon or other method?


Have you tried hands free pumping? (it can be a lifesaver)


It usually doesn't matter if the baby has a side preference as long as we give them enough time on the side they DO like, to get adequate milk.

Keep in mind that the average gain for babies this age is from 1.75 to 4 oz per week.

Hi, I just saw your post here. Something crazy happened and your post was linked to a very old post above.
