Reduced Milk Supply

When my daughter started eating cereal three times a day (at about 5 months) she started nursing mainly right before bed and at 5 am. She might nurse for 5 -10 minutes about 1/2 hour after eating cereal just for a snack, to make sure she's getting the nutrients she needs, and to help calm her down for a nap. My problem is that because of this reduced nursing my milk supply has reduced dramatically to the point where if I pump I only get 1/2 oz at a time. I would like to mix her cereal with breast milk and also since I work full time...

Has Anyone Used (Finugreek) While Breastfeeding?

Hi, I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 4 month old son. He just turned 4 months so he will be starting cereal. I haven't pumped any milk at all, I'm solely breastfeeding him. I'm worried that I won't have enought to pump and use in cereal and still feed him and him still be satisfied? My body is sensitive, so I'm afraid to take finugreek (probably spelled wrong) that it will dry up my milk??? So I was wanting to know if anyone had any taken it and made their milk dry up or any problems with it. I don't want to use formula if I don't have...

5 Month Old Allergic to Both Milk & Soy - What to Feed Him?

My 5-month old son has had a pretty severe case of eczema for over 5-wks. We've switched formulas several times and just had blood test done to confirm allergies. We are now trying Neocate, which is very expensive and he does NOT like the taste. Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative formula? He's allergic to: milk, soy, wheat, egg whites, peanuts, codfish. I've had people recommend goat's milk - but my research indicates this is not a good alternative due to lack of vitamins/nutrients that infants need.

Breastfeeding Problems with Teething Baby

My daughter has been fussy lately with feeding. Until about a month ago, she always needed to nurse for at least 30-40 minutes at a time (at about 3-hour intervals), and she still feeds for that long sometimes, usually for the first and last feedings of the day. The problem: For most feedings lately, she'll eat for 3-5 minutes, stop to burp, and then fuss and push away from me if I try to put her back to the breast. Sometimes she'll eat for a few minutes on the other breast and then do the same thing. I think she needs to eat more...

Name Brand Vs. Store Brand Formula

Hi Everyone, I was wondering if anyone uses the Target brand baby formula. Right now we're using Enfamil Lipil Premium. The last time I was at Target I compared the ingrediants and they were exaxtly the same with the exact same percentage of vitamins and stuff. I'm very hesitant to change because we had some issues with spit up and such but now I think it 's getting much better. My daughter is 5 1/2 months old and just started cereal yesterday. She still spits up but nothing compared to what she did the last 4 months. She's very healthy...
