  1. Re: 3.5 week old weight gain concern

    Is this your regular home scale that you use to weigh yourself? If so, it may not be that accurate (although the fact that it's reading ounces makes me think it's more than that). It's possible the...
  2. Re: Will i be able to breastfeed again after a two week brea

    Hmm, definitely worth looking into then. You don't want to have to pump and dump for any longer than necessary. Here are a couple threads I've found on the forums that address the issue:...
  3. Re: going back to work and logistics

    I totally agree, a week or two is a long time to be separated from your baby and will be an awful lot of work for you to build up enough milk and to have to do all that pumping when you are...
  4. Re: Slowing letdown and amount decrease when pumping

    I'll add one more possibility to mommal's list, which is that this could be a letdown issue rather than a supply issue. A clue to this would be that your breasts feel full after the pumping session....
  5. Re: Will i be able to breastfeed again after a two week brea

    Between 1 month and a year, babies on average drink 24 oz in 24 hours, ranging typically between 19 and 30 oz. So, 4 oz every 8 hours should be plenty, maybe even a little more than he usually gets -...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    I agree. My brother has that horrible fear of flying, our grandparents lived abroad so we traveled a lot as children and he was always sick too (throwing up the whole flight) because of fear and...

    Re: Pumping one drop at a time?

    Sounds great, enjoy the meeting!
  8. Re: going back to work and logistics

    Keep in mind that you don't actually have to fill the bags before your freeze them. Yes, that means you go through more bags, but since you are supposed to use the milk within 24 hours after thawing,...
  9. Re: 1 yr old only drinks 4-5 oz expressed milk while im at w

    Thanks for the update and congrats on a year of nursing! That's wonderful! Toddler nursing is a lot more relaxed in a lot of ways.
  10. Re: going back to work and logistics

    If you want to use the 2.5 oz bottles to feed with, you can store milk in the fridge or freezer in plastic bags. I liked the ones Lansinoh makes, which were easy to stack, but there are various...

    Re: Freaking out about travel

    You can make it work either way, but I agree with mommal, it will be much easier on you if you bring baby. Otherwise you are looking at a lot of pumping during the trip and before, to save up enough...
  12. Re: going back to work and logistics

    The rule of thumb is that baby should get about 1 to 1.5 ounces per hour apart from you. For ten hour separation, that is 10 to 15 ounces, so that is about what you want to shoot for - ie, just in...

    Re: Pumping one drop at a time?

    Yes, exactly. The smaller the storage capacity, the more often you need to pump and/or nurse to maintain supply. This article explains it really well and was eye-opening for me:...
  14. Re: Clogged duct, milk blister and now low supply

    These are some good resources on plugs and blebs:

    Re: Pumping one drop at a time?

    So at this point you are pumping IN ADDITION to exclusively breastfeeding. This is very different from pumping INSTEAD of a nursing session. When you are pumping right after nursing, you will see...
  17. Re: Anxiety and Depression about having to go back

    This is a great thread, thanks for reviving it! A lot of the posts really resonated with me. My guess is that most moms who work outside the home go through this struggle - either at some point or...
  18. Re: Advice? Nwbrn bfing & times of day

    Absolutely! It's all about prioritizing, prioritizing, prioritizing and figuring out what you absolutely have to do (as opposed to someone else). How nice for you that you have a husband who's a...

    Re: To supplement or not??

    I think it's a great idea to educate them about paced feeding. You might also consider sneaking in a dream feed (ie, nurse while baby is sleeping, which is something baby will instinctively do) to...
  20. Re: Advice needed re pump weaning & decreasing supply

    Hi mama, you are amazing! I would start with the pump that yields the least - let's say the 3:30 pm pump. It's only 1 oz, so I don't think you will be engorged or uncomfortable by completely dropping...
  21. Re: breastmilk right before(AND after) solids

    A lot of people find that their young toddlers go through a "nursing like a newborn" phase. Perhaps due to teeth (for example, one year molars) or developmental milestones (walking) or whatever other...

    Re: To supplement or not??

    If you are working 40 hours a week I'm guessing that breaks down into 8 hours per day? The rule of thumb is that baby should get 1 - 1.5 ounces per hour apart from you - sounds like he is getting...
  23. Re: Advice? Nwbrn bfing & times of day

    How about living with a little bit dirtier/messier house for a bit? These early days are just so hard, you are understandably exhausted from nursing around the clock and caring for a newborn, as well...
  24. Re: 1 year old still bf, left breast supply gone whole suppl

    Maybe your strategy of offering the left first is working! That's great the you got 9 oz!

    Re: Pumping one drop at a time?

    I've always seen one drop at a time dropping into the bottle. But the fact that it's uncomfortable indicates a problem. Are you sure your flanges are properly fitted? The nipple should move back and...
