Hello!

So im a FTM, my daughter is just over 4 weeks and I have a few questions:

1. She falls asleep on my breast a lot. I feel like she never gets enough in one sitting which is why she feeds so often(like every 15-30minutes). Any tips to keep her awake? I try stimulating her by touching/tickling/carrressing her ear, feet, cheek and pushijg down on my breast, by the nipple as though i am going to pull it out which will get her sucking again but she still falls alseep

2. Shes a bit colicky. I use gripe water and mylicon and even have her on gentelease. She is better but her sleep is interupted by gas pains. She strains ans crys and screams when she has to pass gas. Has anyone experienced this?

3. For those of you who exclusively breastfeed and pump AND do not have help for the majority of the day. How do find time to pump, take care of baby and yourself? My daughter doesnt like to be put down. I may be able to set her down for 15-20 mins at a time.

I had so many questions about breastfeeding when my son was born. I was lost and depressed because somehow it was very difficult for me. I felt that I won’t handle it. I was searching the net and I have found an awesome ebook HOW TO MAKE BREASTFEEDING PLEASANT AND EASY from this website http://www.parental-love.com It made me stronger and I knew I could deal with all these problems I had. I am sooo happy to say that I made it! I was breastfeeding my boy for 18 months! I wouldn’t do it without this guide! So I think it would answer all your questions. Good luck [smile]

Hello everyone. It's nice to meet you [smile]

I'm just after reading 'how to make breastfeeding pleasant and easy' guide and I wanted to give you some feedback [smile] The guide, in my opinion, is very VERY good! It contains all the information I needed to know - I have no more questions and I feel like I know everything. I got all the guides from the website you recommend and I've read 'How to teach a baby to fall asleep alone' already as well and I think it's really good too. Step by step instructions is awesome. What I love about these guides is that they are short! perfect for me. Can't wait to read two others [smile] Thanks for sharing the website janineS [smile]

I exclusively pumped for the first 3 months after LO was born. He ended up having a tongue and lip tie that got fixed right after he was 2 months old. It was so hard to take care of me and him and pump and wash all my pump parts all the time. I hired a doula to come out and help me once a week. She helped around the house doing laundry, washing dishes and making me snacks and sandwiches. It helped so much. Also, when hubby got home I made sure to take that time for a shower. It did wonders for my psyche. Pumping is so hard and time consuming. I’ve seen some people use a wet wash cloth or wipe to help wake up baby if they fall asleep nursing. You can also switch sides or change their diaper which helps wake them a bit. Good luck!
