  1. Re: Bfing with reduced pump sessions

    Yay, so I can still bf without pumping during the work day? Wow, how awesome is that? I'm excited. I'll probably do a lunch time pump for awhile, just until we get transitioned. I'm concerned with...
  2. Bfing with reduced pump sessions

    My son will be 1 next week (yay!). I work, so I pump at work.

    Legally, after he's 1, I can't take my protected multiple pump breaks (I physically go to another building to pump, so it is quite...

    Re: Weaning

    Thanks for the advice. We're strict about what our son eats (we're vegetarians and don't eat processed foods), so we already provide all his food and know that we'll continue to have to do so.
    He...
  4. Re: Pumping at work and the Law -- the legal right

    I would talk to HR. I had a chat with my HR department and found it very educating. It is their job to know what the law says. Good luck.

    Weaning

    I guess I should post this in the weaning forum, but I really wanted to see what other working mommies did during the weaning process, since a lot of the weaning process will happen at day care.
    So...

    Re: Steroids and low supply

    I'm hoping things improve for me, but I'm not optimistic. When my lo nurses he notices how little milk he's getting and gets frustrated. If there's nothing there right away, he stops sucking. I try...

    Steroids and low supply

    My lo is 10 months. I've been quite the milk producer all along and built up quite the freezer stash. It was so awesome that I even contemplated donating some (but I never got around).
    So about 6...

    Re: pump and dump?

    Thanks for the tip. Their website is very good. They even have a forum for breastfeeding mommies with MS. Unfortunately I will have to wait until tomorrow to talk live with someone. Thanks again.
  10. Re: Should I stop BFing at 9 months to be able to gain sanit

    My boy is almost 9 months old and will weigh in around 15 pounds. He is always in the lowest percentile compared to the average American baby. I used to worry
    about it, but not anymore. He eats...

    Thanks for the advice. We got off to a rocky start with breastfeeding. But now at almost 8 months we're doing real well and my lo's thriving. So I've been hesitant to deviate from the routine because...

    Re: Reducing pump frequency?

    My lo gets 4 bottles at 5oz each. He is very active at day care and is thriving on what he's getting. Even with what he gets during the day, we still add to our freezer stash. I can't say exactly how...

    Pumping and working is hard work. I won't candy coat it. I'm doing it still, my lo is 7 months old. I physically have to disrupt my work and walk to another building at my company to pump. It is not...

    He's 19 weeks. At our 4month peditrician visit we were encouraged to let him sleep the night, instead of wake him for feedings, which we were doing. However, if he does wake up and want to eat, I'll...

    Re: Pumping back at work

    Oh, and I'm going no more than 3 hours or so between feeding my baby and pumping. I feed him before I leave for work then go into pump every 3 hours mode, then feed my baby when I get home.

    Re: Pumping back at work

    Thank you for all the advice. I will definitely pump longer and go about 20 minutes. I have to go to the medical clinic to pump, there's no place to pump in my building other than the bathroom. So...

    Re: caregiver frusteration

    Yes, we do use a pacifier. Our baby is quite the fussy one, so we do pop the pacifier in the mouth to try to calm him.
