    This is what I do :)
    I have a gallon zip bag that I store my horns in and just toss them in the fridge. I put the bottles (with caps on), the zip bag, and the milk bags all in the fridge after...

    But, once my LO is on solids, they start taking less milk right? Do I have to pump at work until she is completely weaned? Right now she only takes about 6...

    Re: Crying over spilled milk...

    I poured 3 oz onto the table when I was trying to fill bottles for my MIL to use the next day. I can't imagine losing a whole bottle! I was glad I had managed to pump extra that day. :o

    Re: Pumping and Feeding Cycle?

    Pumping and Feeding Cycle?

    I'm just curious how the actual pumping and feeding cycle works. I'm planning on pumping 15 oz and then freezing any more I get while I pump at work.

  11. Re: Mixing expressed breastmilk from different dates?

    I've done it when I'm feeding it all to LO that day. Say I have a 1 oz bottle that is 4 days old and a 2 oz bottle that is 1 day old. I've combined them and fed that day or the next.

    I think the...

    Re: Latching Question

    I think she has been latching deeper. And now that she is bigger with more neck control, she will purposely pull off and let the milk spray. So I have to really watch for those milk facials!

    If it becomes a huge deal, you could always just say you are making private phone calls or something of that nature.

    Re: feeding while im at work

    We use a paci right after she is done with the bottle too. I think she just wants to suck longer than it takes to drink from the bottle. If she won't take the paci, we use our pinky for her to suck...

    Re: What should I tell them?

    I have my answer ready:

    "I am pumping to provide the best nutrition to my baby at my pediatrician's recommendation."

    My LO was 8 lbs 15 oz at birth. 8 lbs 3 oz on her 5th day. Heck, at her 2 week check, she was still only 8 lbs 9 oz. At her 1 month she was 10 lbs 4 oz. I'd guesstimate she is 12 lbs or so now. ...
