  1. Re: Do I still need to pump at night to protect supply?

    I think the little guy is overeating. I've been told from this forum and I believe Kellymom that 1 to 1.5 oz per hour away from baby is a good range, although some babies need a little more or less...

    Re: Thoughts on breastfeeding

    With baby #1 my drive returned after my period returned, so you may see a change, ruchiccio, fairly soon. With baby #2, we've been so busy and exhausted -- especially with my return to full-time...

    Re: Back to Work Stress

    I think it's hard to imagine these things before going back to work. I only work a regular 8.5-hour day most days, but I do work one or two 14 to 16-hour days a month. During those long days I have...
  4. Re: What do you do when LO is hungry&sleepy together to nurs

    I also wonder how old your LO is? My son behaves similarly, and has since he was only a couple weeks old. He's not much of a comfort nurser -- he will only fall asleep nursing sometimes (except...

    Re: Mastitis lump

    Yes, I was mistakenly led to believe I had a plugged duct following a short bout of mastitis (not my midwife's fault -- she didn't know any better than I did, and assumed the lump was a plug). It...
  6. Re: Less breast milk after electric pump brok

    If you can get a day or two of some extra pumps in (on the weekend is best, even though it's annoying) I think that was almost enough to get me back up. When I started back to work a few weeks ago...
  7. Re: Employer helping, but not enough

    I would also point out the extra time wasted (yours and someone else's) by seeking out someone to borrow a key. I had to go through this yesterday when my room had to be moved temporarily and they...

    Re: I left milk out uncovered!

    I always tell my caregivers to smell the milk every time they put it in the bottle, although I am not thinking that they do that all the time. I know my last nanny did catch a few that didn't smell...
  9. Re: Almost 3 month old - eating enough? pumping output decre

    The does seem on the low side for number of feedings. Both my kids averaged 8-10 feedings per day, even when my daughter slept through the night for a brief time. I leave about 15 oz of work for my...

    Re: Pumping at Work

    If you're already pumping 3.5 to 3.75 oz on average that's pretty good. I am lucky to get 3 oz each time I pump. I took fenugreek a few times now and got oversupply, so please be cautious. It's...
  11. Re: Dr Told Me to Stop Nursing my 12 Month Old at Night

    Ah, so many of us have been there with pediatricians. I was told this since my LO was 3 months old. Just ignored it! She started sleeping well (usually through the night or one or two wake ups,...

    Re: pacifier?

    I think that's a personal decision. We've used a pacifier with both babies. My daughter was a very restless sleeper and the sucking seemed to help her sleep better. She only used it for naps for a...
  13. Re: 5 month old spitting up more than usual

    How long has he been in daycare? And how long is he there each day? That sounds like very large bottles, but it's hard to say whether that's contributing to the spitting up. Did he always drink...

    Re: baby refusing one breast

    It's definitely a supply issue on that side -- he has always been mad that it comes out slower and there's less (except for a brief time where he seemed like both sides were too fast!). But of...

    Re: baby refusing one breast

    I'm not so good with pumping on one side while nursing on the other, but I do try to pump one side sometimes once he falls asleep (every 2 hours or so he naps). He did nurse on that side a little...

    baby refusing one breast

    Since DS was born, he has preferred the left breast to the right, and has days where he doesn't nurse so much on the right. But today he is outright refusing and I'm not sure why -- and it's...

    Re: Pumping at Work

    Oops, what I was going also going to say was that if you do decide to do the 4 oz. bottles, then maybe make up an extra session or two on the weekend or try pumping in the car if you drive to work. ...

    Re: Pumping at Work

    I pump every three hours, and I can only pump about 3 oz per session. I am away from home for about 10.5 hours, so I'm leaving 15 oz, but asking the sitter to try to do about 4 3 oz bottles. The...

    Re: Hygeia vs. Medela PISA pump

    So just wanted to update everyone that I ordered the Hygeia Enjoye from their website. It has been 20 days since I ordered it, and it has not yet arrived. I called and emailed last week, and they...
  20. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    I say don't stop pumping altogether, but use your freezer stash as needed. I had no freezer stash at that point, but my little one loved both solids and nursing so I just gave her what I could pump...
  21. Re: 'Following a letdown' when pumping?

    I have a Purely Yours and I've never changed the settings after a letdown. I actually pump with it on top speed and top suction, because I seemed to need it. With the Medela pumps there's a letdown...

    Re: mastitis lump

    This is from Dr. Jack Newman's site. I was mistakenly told I had plugged ducts after mastitis. Thank goodness I found this, because it was a lump.
  23. Re: Best bottle to not screw up latch/suck?

    I think there are probably a variety that work for different babies. We've used the First Years Breastflow bottle with both kids and haven't had any problems yet. However, I'm heading back to work...
  24. Re: Am I leaving enough milk for when I'm at work?

    I've always been confused about the 1-1.5 oz thing per hours separated. Does that mean more like 1-1.5 oz per hour between bottles rather than total hours separated? For example, if I am gone from...
  25. Re: can you have plugged duct with no symptoms?

    I thought it was a strained muscle or some bruising from a sports bra. But it's been 4 days now. But so mild, it's not always noticeable. It could still be around because I was massaging it and...
