    My LO is now 10 months and on 3 meals a day. She is drinking 10 oz while I am away, and my pumping output has decreased pretty dramatically, to the point where I have to use my freezer stash. Is...

    I had a clogged duct for the first time in 8 months and did not know what it was, and finally was able to get it out yesterday after 4 days of this. I pump at work and the output had been horrible...

    Breast Pain

    I'm trying to determine if this could be mastitis/clogged duct, or if my muscle is sore from some raking I did over the weekend.

    My breast is really sore right about where the pectoral muscle...
  4. Need help w/eliminating some night feedings

  5. Re: Daycare changed bottle routine - need opinions

    Yes, our daughter is small too.....not quite 16 pounds at 6 months. I have switched once already and would rather not have to switch again, but I will if our needs can't be met. We've been toying...
  6. Re: Daycare changed bottle routine - need opinions

    Just called my ped and they also thought this was a lot for her, and think I should be firm about amounts given. I'd rather her not be on a schedule either, but that's what they seem to do.....she's...
  7. Re: Daycare changed bottle routine - need opinions

    Yep, we have new stage 1 nipples being used. She always sends home the extra oz of breastmilk, so nothing is being wasted. Do you think if my DD is actually still hungry, it would be better to...
  8. Daycare changed bottle routine - need opinions

    My LO has been in daycare for 3 months (shes 6 mo)....I've always sent 3 bottles to be given at 9, 12, 3....I pump at these times as well to stay on the same schedule. They recently told me she is...
  9. Re: How much more efficient is baby than pump?

    yep, my LO is 5 months....I've started to supplement and have decided that what happens during the day at daycare happens....and if I can just make our time together work I'll be happy. I'll take...
  10. How much more efficient is baby than pump?

    I'm starting to think my inability to pump very much (10 oz total throughout workday, pumping 3 x's) may be affecting my supply in general. DD never seems satisified anymore after we nurse. She...

    Re: How much can you pump?

    I also bring home around 10 oz everyday (plus the 2 that I pump in the morning)......no matter what I do if I have a "big" morning pump, I still only end up with 10 at the end of the day.
  12. Re: had to dig in to freezer stash - looking for support

    I can't pump enough either and send 2 six oz bottles of BM, and 1 six oz bottle of formula and my daughter is thriving. I burned thorugh my freezer stash by the time she was 4.5 months and I am...
  13. Re: Nursing strike over 1 month already.. Help!!

    We are in the same position.....my girl is getting a strong bottle pref, and I work so this is our only option.....when she nurses she gets mad unless we are in the side-lying position......lots of...

    Re: Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    That is a good thought, maybe I should pump a little later in the day....I had been pumping at 9,12,and 3.....she's geting her bottles right around 9:30, 12:30 and 3:30.....if not a little later.

    Re: Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    Thanks. Our daycare lady lives a block away so I am nursing her right before work and right after work. I have noticed that she isn't eating well when I get her home, I'm guessing because she has...

    Re: Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    She gets 3 bottles.....approx 1 every 3 hours. I thought about smaller bottles more frequently,not sure if that would make a diff.

    Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    I've been sending three 5 oz bottles with my 4 month old, and already was coming up 3 oz short a day....got home last night and now they think she is ready for bigger bottles.....they want me to send...
  19. Re: Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    Ethansmommie----your situation is exactly mine! Yes, she only does this during the day, night feeds are fine, but then again we are side-lying anyways.......it has been easier for me too at times to...
  20. Re: Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    Yep, I've tried just going in our room and nursing in the chair and that doesn't work either.....she gets mad. I just don't get it.
  21. Re: Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    Any ideas on the side lying nursing preference? This has been my biggest stressor.....I just want to be able to nurse "normal" again.
  22. Re: Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    I use the PIS and rented the lactina for at work and that hasn't increased output either....and I do pump in the morning as well while she is nursing on the other side....I get 2 more ounces that way.
  23. Re: Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    She is using the slow flow nipple.....I had tried fenugreek 3 pills/3 x's a day for a week and that didn't work.....also gave reglan a try and that didn't work either for us. ; (
  24. Thoughts of quitting after 4 months....need support.

    My LO is 4 months old, and I have been having a heck of a time nursing my daughter for the past 5 or 6 weeks. It started out that about 1 or 2 times a day, she would get mad nursing after 5 or 6...

    Any one take Reglan to up supply?

    I'm about 3 oz short every day, and my LC suggested that maybe I should give reglan a try. I have tried the fenurgreek (3 pills, 3x a day) and that has not helped me. I'm burning through my freezer...
