  1. Re: Complete bottle strike at 3 mo. old! DH is at his wit's end!

    Well, last night DH got him to take a bottle twice, and go back to sleep after! Yay! There is hope!

    I think working a different shift would be harder... If I worked days, he'd be wanting to eat...
  2. Re: Baby eats more during the week than on weekends?

    keep in mind too that a baby is always more efficient at getting milk out than the pump. He probably gets that extra ounce or so out easily when nursing.

    Maybe if you add an additional session...
  3. Re: not enough time to pump at work! losing my milk!

    In most states they are legally required to give you a place and time to pump... is there a reason why it's not feasible? It doesn't take any longer than another person's smoke break if you have a...
  4. Re: Complete bottle strike at 3 mo. old! DH is at his wit's end!

    I know I have excess lipase, so this may have been how the bottle strike got started... but now I have been scalding my milk and I have been trying with fresh milk, and still no luck. I hope I...
  5. Complete bottle strike at 3 mo. old! DH is at his wit's end!

    I work nights, and every morning I come home DH tells me how LO was up most of the night because he refused to eat and won't go back to sleep!

    He took bottles fine up until a week and a half ago,...

    Re: have to toss my stash!

    He has been refusing all bottles lately (see my other post) so it's hard to know if he would take the frozen milk anyway. Maybe I'll just keep the stash until I can get him to take bottles again and...

    Re: have to toss my stash!

    How can I donate it if it's rancid from the lipase? I'd love to not see it wasted, but if I can't use it, how could they?

    OMG.. I worked so hard to get a good freezer stash, and now I find out I have a lipase issue and all my milk that's only 1.5 months old is tasting funky! I have been able to get fresh milk to last...

    Re: No let down while pumping?

    I had this issue when I first tried pumping.... I got much more when I pumped while feeding, and soon I learned to let down to the pump alone and now I get plenty. Good luck!

  11. Re: how to get better letdown without baby there?

    the flanges I have are the 24 mm that came with the pump. According to the pictures in the manual, they're a little too big.

    I ordered the smaller size but they won't be here until Friday or...
  12. Re: how to get better letdown without baby there?

    When I was double-pumping the other day, it was to replace a feeding I'd missed while out Christmas shopping-- I had plenty of milk in there and still felt too full when I gave up on trying to get...

    so, my baby is only 12 days old, but I'm trying to get the pump worked out and build a freezer stash because I know I'll be going back to work full-time working 4 10-hour days starting late in...
