    Re: Fridge to freezer? Can I do this??

    Yep, the milk is never touched by my lo or heated. I went ahead and put in in the freezer. I hope it will be okay. I did put a little note on the bag to check it when I thaw it. Thanks!

    Re: Post Partum?

    I take the Zoloft and have been since February. Looking back I should have gone on something after my first lo but did not. With the second baby it got to be just too much for me so I swallowed my...

    Our dr had the same mentality with my first lo. He was set that she needed formula because of her weight gain, or lack of. I was devastated and I my LC told me there was a different growth chart...

  15. How many shields and valves do you have?

    Re: silly question!

    It is likely that the good thick milk is still in the breast. That will fill baby up in a jiffy! No pump is ever strong enough to totally empty the breast.

    Re: maintaining/increasing milk supply

    A good idea might be when you are home to only offer the breast. The skin to skin contact will help to continue the stimulating of your milk. Have you thought about fenugreek? I swear by it. It...
