    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    I agree with this completely. I tried to "teach" my son to sleep without BFing to sleep but all it did was make bedtime take hours. And we did this for a couple of months at different ages. Sleep...
  4. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    I would have told him that I still BF'ed my 3 year old. If he had any sense of decency he would have realized that his comment was inappropriate because it was insulting. If he continued down the...

    Re: dayquil and breastfeeding

    There are a few different formulations, but most of the basic ingredients should be fine. Double check that the decongestant is phenylephrine, NOT pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine can dry up your...
  6. Re: pressure from outsiders to wean 12mo

    Co-workers? Clients? In what universe is that appropriate? I agree that it is completely rude to repeatedly ask and would offer an equally rude response along the lines of "my boobs, my business"....
  7. Re: PLEASE HELP!!!! What is an Ideal diet while breastfeedin

    Why do you have to cut back on eating vegetables? I have heard some people claim that when a mom eats gassy foods it makes the baby gassy, but that is a myth. I little bit of baby gas is not worth...

    Re: Cereal Confusion

    Rice cereal is the typical recommended first food because it is easy to digest and has a low likelyhood of allergic response. This is especially important if you are starting baby on solids around 4...
  9. Re: How do you build a solid milk supply from day 1?

    How much time do you have after baby before you have to go back to work?

    I would not even touch the pump for the first month, and when you do start pumping only do it once a day to express...
  10. Re: Haven't BF in 4 months is it possible?

    I can't answer your question about bringing back your milk supply, but I can tell you that pumping shouldn't hurt or make you bleed, whether you are lactating or not. Check that your flanges fit...

    Re: Not responding to Hygeia Pump

    I did respond to your question in the other thread yesterday, but I have one more observation from my use of the Hygeia. I find that in order to get a let down I have to use what feels like more...
  13. Re: odd things we were told by the hospital

    You wouldn't need to lotion a newborn is the hospital didn't maintain the practice of bathing babies within minutes of them being born. It is unnecessary and bad for their skin.
  14. Re: To get or not to get (a new pump)

    I have both a Medela (from baby #1) and a Hygeia (insurance covered baby #2). I prefer the Medela, but the Hygeia works okay. Since the Medela has a better tote bag I keep it at home and use it...
  15. Re: Supplementing with homemade formula

    Pumping 10 ounces in 6 hours is really good! I pump around 13-15 ounces in 10 hours and most working moms consider that a really good output. You are away from baby for what? 7-8 hours? Then 10...

    Toddlers manipulate, huh? Who knew! What exactly does night feeding have to do with that? You decide what you let your child do, and you not setting a limit for night feeding doesn't make your...
  18. Re: Low Supply AFTER the weekend with no pumping

    Ugh! I hate the pump! But maybe you are right and I need to do a pump or two over the weekend. I would just offer to nurse more often, but she is not into comfort nursing (prefers her thumb to me,...
  19. Low Supply AFTER the weekend with no pumping

    When I was working full time and pumping for my son a few years ago, I used the weekends to increase my supply by nursing frequently all weekend long. Usually my pumping output would be highest on...

    Re: Pumping - one side or both?

    I would pump both sides. I also had oversupply with my first and both my first and my current only nurse one side per session. I found that if I pumped just one side I would end up leaking on the...

  23. Re: Stress and breastfeeding 5 month old.

    Re: profuse sweating while nursing
