    Re: Pumping while nursing

    I don't know if I can manage using a manual pump to pump while nursing. I already feel I need to have an extra arm and hand using the electric one. I'll try and ask the nanny or my husband (good luck...

    Pumping while nursing

    I've heard everyone say and I've read everywhere that you get more milk from one breast when your baby is nursing from the other.

    That's what I know too, as long as they are of the same temperature, you can combine them

    I was also advised to store milk in smaller amounts so there would be less (or none at all) milk waste....
  8. Re: regular pumping but supply is decreasing

    I actually meant 3rd week of August, not August 3.

    Yeah, it's really hard to relax at work during pumping sessions because I'm usually pressed for time.

    Pumping sked at work

    I am aware that the best way to increase your milk supply is to direct-feed your baby as often as possible, and when you're away from your baby, to express milk at least every 2-3 hours. I try and...
  13. Re: Pumping during the first six weeks

    Yeah, I can actually pump whenever I want at work (except when there are meetings); they're pretty much lax about work schedules as long as I meet deadlines. :snicker

  15. Re: Pumping during the first six weeks

    Yes, I'll be pumping while I'm at work and direct feeding when at home.

    Won't pumping less often make your supply dwindle eventually?

    Re: Medela Freestyle Breastpump?

    I asked for shipping to California (to my friend) and the email says "$5 ground shipping within the continental US".

    Re: Medela Freestyle Breastpump?

    I just got an email from addalittlelove.com, and while the pump indeed costs $285, there is a $5 charge on the shipping.

    Anyway, how's the pump? Is it at all noisy or discreet?
