    Re: Where do u pump at work?

    I'm lucky enough to have my own office now (befoer I left for mat leave, I was in a cubicle), so I pump in there. I just put a do not disturb sign on the door, so no one walks in on me.

    Re: Alrighty then

    My 4mo old has started turning away from the breast when I know she's hungry as well, just within the last 2 days. It's very frustrating. What we do is give her the binky (pacifier) to calm her down...

    Re: EPing to Breastfeeding

    Congratulations on keeping up with exclusively pumping for this long! I know what a chore it is to pump while I'm at work, so I can only imagine how much work it must be to pump full-time. Kudos to...

    Re: Just not comfortable

    I am small chested as well, and found that the side-laying position is easiest for us. Sitting up, I tend to lean towards her to latch her on, which is not good for my back.

    Re: What do you do while pumping?

    I pump in my office at work, so I have pics of my lo all around. While I'm pumping, I either surf the net or crochet. If I'm very busy, I've worked through pumping a few times.

    Re: Looking for anti CIO support

    Lainey's Mom basically took the words right out of my mouth. At this age, crying is their only means of communication. IMO, if you ignore their crying, what are you teaching them? That no matter how...

    Re: What does Let-Down feel like?

    For me it usually feels like a tingly push at the nipples, hard to explain. Many women don't feel it at all though, so I wouldn't worry, as others have said.

    Re: good news, bad news?

    It sounds like your body is responding to a decreased need for milk, as the pump is not as efficient at removing milk than your baby. Personally, I would ditch the bottles if at all possible and just...

    Re: How do I even get stared?

    A big huge "yeah that!" to this statement. For the first 6-8 weeks, let your little one be in charge as far as when to eat goes. You'll notice that, usually somewhere between 8-12 weeks, your baby...

    Re: opinions on co-sleeping

    I love having my little snuggle-bunny sleeping right next to me. Without co-sleeping, I think I would go insane with the lack of sleep. Especially since I've gone back to work and she's settled into...

    Re: Hands free pumping suggestions

    I use the ponytail method. It's not 100% hands free, though. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I feel like I need to be leaning against something to keep the suction from breaking, especially when...

    Re: No use crying over spilled milk

    I am constantly in fear that I am going to spill my milk at work, or that some idiot will poor it out, or something along those lines. Oh goodness, I would have been in tears!
  13. Re: HELP ME PLEASE!! I can't Feed DS for 48 hours

    Do you have a stash of frozen BM at all? He might just protest eating altogether, because he wants to nurse. Don't over-stress (I know easier said than done), try to have dh feed him as much as...

    Re: Newbie question

    Unless you absolutely have to, I would hold off pumping and feeding via bottles until your lo is older, around 6-8 weeks old. I know dads can start to feel left out of the game, but you need to work...

    Re: Medela Pump In Style Owners

    I just checked mine and it does not have a hole on the cover. I almost always double pump though. I get more milk in less time that way.

    Re: What to expect after c-section?

    Great advice from the previous posters, especially LunaticLibrarian.
    Also, remember, your colostrum is enough for baby until your milk comes in. That is the way our bodies were designed. My milk...

    Re: The Hand Dance

    Oh yeah, my lo does this all the time. I feel sorry for her sometimes because it's as if she can't decide which she wants more - to eat or to play with her hands. She usually picks her hands first,...

    Re: Foremilk/Hindmilk Question

    What color are her poopies? As long as she is gaining well, not fussy/gassy and has good output (6-10 WET diapers and 5-7 yellowish, mustardy color poops per day), I'd say she's fine.

    I say, keep up the good work. Obviously, you're baby is getting what he needs in his own time frame. It's amazing how little doctors know about breastfeeding.

    I have always been told to nurse first and then offer solids. Before 1 year old, solids is just training and play time, they get little to no nutritional benefit from eating solids.

  23. Re: Still have little bit of milk after weaning?

    It's highly common to continue producing milk after weaning. I know several women, who up to a year after weaning, can still express milk.

    If she is only getting one bottle a week, it could be that she is overeating because she is looking for you. When I went back to work, the WIC LC warned me that until she settled into a routine, my...
