    need help

    I'm at a loss here. I've been exclusively nursing my daughter for almost 8 months now. I've always had just enough milk to get by (I estimate she used to get 24 oz/day), and though she's small, she...

    problems with pump

    I need some help. I've been using an Ameda PIS (got it used from a friend) the whole time to pump, once a day or so until 3 months, then 3x/day for 4 days/week while I'm at work. I've had good...

    supply decreasing with solids?

    Did you guys notice that your supply began to decrease when you started solids? I work 4 days/week, and have consistently been able to pump 8-9 oz total per day. Which worked out great - babe got...
  4. nipple stim to increase output?

    I recently heard a mama talk about using nipple stimulation to increase her pumping output. She would stimulate every 15-20 minutes during the day and supposedly it helped.

    Has anyone heard of...

    Re: Which breast pump is best for me?

    I also recommend the Ameda. It's a little cheaper than the others, and works great (I used it before trying a hospital grade and got the same results). Just make sure you have enough spare parts as...
  6. Re: HELP -Pumping Nightmare - No Milk Not adjusting to additional stimulation????

    Really? Is this true? So if my baby is only getting pumped milk during the day is she missing out on a normal amount of hind milk? If so, that sucks.

    so tired

    Warning, rant ahead :rant

    I'm so tired of breast feeding. For 12 weeks we did great - she was growing on track, developing normally if not a bit ahead, and we were both so happy.

    Now I've been...

    Re: Anyone else hand express???

    I do the exact same thing. I was amazed at how much came out after a 15 minute pumping session!
  9. Re: Is this slight breast pain normal?

    This happened to me too, right after DD was born. It hasn't happened since, but it was exactly what you described and it ended up being nothing, I guess.

    Re: 4 month old

    My LO is lucky to get 3 3 oz bottles (I can usually pump 8-9 oz total per day). But she eats 8x a day, so I know she's getting enough. Babies on average should get 25 oz total/day for the first six...

    Re: Is my supply low?

    I bet anything it's just gas/upset tummy then. Word of caution, I tried Feungreek, and it made my babe super uncomfortable, more so than usual. Give it a try, but definitely be on the watch for it.

    Re: Is my supply low?

    I was just going to suggest that. My LO is about the same age and we have almost the exact same issues. She's very impatient before let down and also often fussy after eating. I know she's getting...

    got my period - DD is 4 months

    I'm a little freaked out. My DD is 4 months (today!) and I started bleeding this morning. Weirder still is that I got what I thought was my period 2 weeks ago - heavy-ish bleeding for 4 days.

  14. Avent Isis IQ Duo (also posted in Pumping)

    Does anyone have this pump? If so, I'd love to hear opinions. I'm thinking of buying it - it's a great price on Amazon and supposedly it's comparable to a hospital-grade pump.

    I've tried oatmeal, fenugreek (bad side effects and no difference), adding pumping sessions, pumping for 5-10 minutes after the milk stops, all sorts of stuff. I almost always pump the same amount...

    only one letdown while nursing?

    I notice when I'm nursing my 4 month old DD that there's only one letdown per side (she eats on both each time). I can tell because there's only one spurt of long swallows. I try to keep her on the...

    Re: used pump affect production?

    That's the thing, I do all of that stuff - massage, compression, am able to let down just fine, eat boatloads of oats, etc. Nothing makes a bit of difference.

    I guess the thing that threw me...

    My insurance plan will cover a manual pump but not an electric one. What a load of crap! Stupid insurance.

    Re: Medela pump in style VS Ameda

    I would go with the Medela. I have an Ameda and can only get the parts online, which is a hassle, especially if I need them ASAP.

    I've just now been reading reviews and have found that the Medela...
