    It's totally a phase.  We went through the same thing.  My husband would get home and couldn't wait to get his hands on the baby and she would shriek.  Try having your husband face him outwards (is th more »

    DD would nurse for an hour, yes, an HOUR, in the beginning and then nap for an hour and then nurse again for an hour all day long (but she slept through the night so I'm not complaining).  I had a ver more »

    Our DD came home from the hospital sleeping through the night although at 9 months now she has started waking up b/w 12 - 2 to nurse.  I think the whole routine thing is huge.  We put on jammies, take more »

    Went through the same thing.  I cut it back in 2 stages.  First time went with a layered bob that was a little longer in front than the back.  Now I just got a shorter layered bob that I really like.  more »

    Oh my gosh she's gorgeous! Maybe some banana before naptime?  Or in the alternative, give her something that cleans her out very early in the morning. more »

    Women & Infants in RI put a cute bottomless shirt on DD & then they swaddle them in a hospital blanket.  Get a good swaddling lesson while you're their because you can't beat a good swaddle.  As an as more »

    I bought a few different things but my staples ended up being nursing bras (I like the sports type ones that pull up as opposed to the kind that clip near your arm pits), tank tops and a zip up jacket more »

    Thank you all so much!!  I've bought the fenugreek and I'll start with 3 capsules, 3 times per day and see if that boosts it up.  I've also got the oatmeal and I'm increasing my protein intake.  We'll more »

    I have been blessed with a good nurser so I shouldn't complain but the amount of milk I'm pumping per session has drastically reduced in the last week and it's kind of freaking me out.  DD is 6 1/2 mo more »

    My 4 month old DD prefers the left side too and will refuse the right at times.  If we're in public I just give in but if we're at home, I offer the right side...she fusses...I take her off and burp h more »

    Ha ha, I am pumping as I type this while she (3 months old) is in her swing.  I think it varies greatly from person to person.  Your supply will be at it's peak now so I would pump as much as you can more »

    I would say try to get a good burp out of him as soon as he's done nursing or after about 15 min. if he's still nursing.  I've found that if I don't get DD to burp well after nursing her, she will als more »
