  1. Re: impatience at breast - low pumping output

    I do hand compressions, yes. He still pops on and off. I am gone for roughly 9 hours, sometimes 10. We use Dr. Brown's...not the slowest flow, but I have tried other slow flow bottles and nipples,...

    Re: From Bottle back to Breast

    No real suggestions, just moral support! I am having a similar problem, though not as extreme. My LO is getting bottle fed 3 bottles of EBM while I am at work, and is very impatient at the breast,...

    Re: 2 pumping questions

    He's not quite 4 months. He eats about 12 oz while I am gone, and I get about 7-9 oz from 3 pumping sessions (I guess a little better than half).

    What is the simplest, gentlest way to wean my baby from needing to nurse down for a nap? It doesn't bother me to do this, and I don't mind nursing down at night, but I want other people to be able...

    Re: burping

    Some babies are just gassy. If your LO is 6.5 months, he is probably pretty efficient, so don't worry about short nursing sessions. Be glad he DOES burp. Mine doesn't burp well, and gets fussy...

    Medela Pump in Style Advanced ??

    I go back to work on Monday. I have a Medela PISA and have been able to get 2-4 oz. in a session depending on how full my breasts are. Usually closer to 2 oz. in 10 minutes. While at work, I am...
  12. Re: how much breast milk should i be pumping for 3 month old???

    Is this your first time pumping? It takes a while for your body to get used to the pump. As you continue to pump, you will probably see more output. The first few times I pumped, I got maybe a 1/2...

    is this a growth spurt?

    My LO is 14 weeks. The past few days he has been eating a lot more frequently. Not necessarily for long periods of time (sometimes 5-10 minutes only), but sometimes he'll eat for a half hour,...

    Re: Yellow Milk

    Re: weight gain - can LO's gain too much?

    My pedi said that BF babies tend to gain quickly and then plateau a little bit as they get older. Mine gained REALLY fast the first few weeks and then slowed down. There are a couple of growth...

    When I started breastfeeding, I was worried about my supply and turned into a pumping machine. I ended up with a bit of an OS issue, as my LO was very young at the time. So I stopped pumping, since...
