    Re: Avent vs Playtex drop ins

    I use playtex drop ins and I really like them. There are more nipple choices which was good for us because my dd only took latex orthodontic nipples at first. Although now she takes the slow flow...

    Re: how to relax at work?

    I'm sorry you have to deal with this kind of stress. I pump in a conference room and even in there I get nervous that someone will try to come in while I'm all hooked up to the pump. So far so good...
  5. Re: New job - i may have to stop pumping

    Why not try to fit in your breaks that you are entitled to. Tell your new boss asap that you pump and it is important that you be able to continue. Make sure they know it does not interfere with your...

    Re: Is 9 oz enough over 8 hours?

    I guess it all depends on your LO as far as how much is enough. My dd started daycare at 3 months she is there for 7 hours and I send 12oz which is two feedings. She always finishes all the milk I...

    Re: Back to work in a month...

    We warm a bowl of water in the microwave for about 1-1.5 mins then we put the bowl on the counter and put the bottle in it for about a minute or until lukewarm. I use playtex dropins so they warm up...

    Re: A LITTLE tired of my big breasts

    I would go out and buy yourself a nice fitting bra. I actually don't wear nursing or maternity bras I just wear my regular underwire bras in a size bigger of course. I know what you mean about being...

    Re: LO still refuses EBM

    My DD was the same way, she refused any and all bottles and we tried them all. I was freaking out thinking that she would never take a bottle by the time I went back to work. What ended up working...
  15. Re: bf'ing Steelworker & rotating work schedule

    I think that you can still manage to breastfeed. I'm only able to pump 2 times a day while I am at work and with my Medela PIS I can empty both breasts in a about 15 minutes total time. I just put my...
  16. Re: How many pumping sessions should I have???

    I am still pumping between 14-16 oz per day while at work. I also use a double pump and prior to going back to work my daughter only fed off of one side at a time. My biggest problem right now is my...

    HELP! My pump is not working.

    I went to pump this morning before I leave for work and my pump is not suctioning well at all. There is no way it will even pump out any milk. I have a Medela PIS. I am so upset and have no idea what...
  18. Re: How many pumping sessions should I have???

    I don't pump 14oz in 1 pumping session. I pumped 14oz in 2 pumping sessions, and the day before I got 18, but who's to say this will last. I'm not sure if it's the fenugreek or what... but I am...
  19. Re: How many pumping sessions should I have???

    Thanks so much for sharing with me your schedules and for the support. Today I only pumped twice and I got 14oz so I was pretty happy with that. I have been taking 3 fenugreek tablets in the morning...

    Re: what to do?

    It's so true, think about the people who take smoke breaks at work. I bet their boss's don't pull them aside to talk about their many breaks. Not to mention the smell.

    Re: i'm sad

    I agree add up the cost for the cans of formula that would need to be supplemented if you were not pumping.

    How long are your pumping sessions. Shouldn't your mandatory paid breaks cover some of...
  24. Re: growth spurt PLEASE HELP READY TO GIVE UP

    It's so true that formula will not cure the fussiness. I frequent another message board and all the formula fed LO's are just as fussy and needy as our breastfed LO's. The only difference is anyone...
