    Re: How do you stop a 1 year old?

    Like pps said food is only dropped on the floor when the gas tank has been filled up. When my DD is hungry, that comes first.

    To note though...I cannot rely on her feeding herself completely. ...

    Re: Is buying a used breast pump safe?

    Personally I think Madela wants people to have to buy more pumps. The possibility of some kind of contamination is pretty remote.

    First the original owner would have to have some kind of...

    Re: Baby doesn't want solids.

    I'm in the same boat. My 7 mo. old has no desire to eat solids. We can spend an hour trying different specially prepared foods only to have her cry for a bottle in the end! Its so frustrating.

    Re: Question about fenugreek ...

    I've heard it loses its effectiveness after 6,7,8 weeks of use. SUpposedly you have to stop for a while.

    Actually blessed thistle has just as good effect though so maybe alternate between the two.

    Re: using a USED breast pump

    I don't know if I'd believe this. I know several women who've used their PISs for about six months so far. I use a rental Symphony so I don't have personal experience with them.

    I would have thought that someone taking domperidone is exempt from the day/night prolactin flux.
