    Re: cleaning shield connector

    Yep I use those too. No luck. I'm wondering if a 1:10 bleach solution would be bad. Or maybe a soak in vinegar and baking soda? Idk

    cleaning shield connector

    I have a Medela pump. My question is how in the world can I clean the itty, bitty spaces in the connector piece for the breast shield? I use the pump parts wipes while I am at work and wash the...

    Re: Pumping, STTN, & Working Nights

    I have a 4 month old and work 12 hour nights. She only nurses on one side per feeding also. DD pretty much sleeps through the night (for the most part) but she goes to day care during the day for 5...
  12. Re: Sleeping through the night and worried about milk supply

    This sounds exactly like DD. When she was about 2 1/2 month old she started sleeping a LOT. Some 12 hour stretches at night but still nursed every 2 hrs during the day. I called my doc and asked if I...

  15. Re: plz tell me freezer burnt milk is ok

    I tried it and it doesn't taste good. I don't think it tastes sour, just tastes freezer burnt. I think my whole freezer stash may be the same.
  16. Re: plz tell me freezer burnt milk is ok

    I haven't tried giving it to her yet. Its not quite thawed (in the fridge). I haven't tasted it either. I'm guessing it prob tastes as bad as it smells (metalic). I just worry abt it upsetting her...

    Re: 6 wk old, Gassy, fussy, infreq BM

    I think her tummy might be causing her fussiness-the gas, and rumbling/gurgling. I feed her on demand. She has a 'hungry' cry, so that is when I feed her. Also if she starts rooting or putting her...

    Re: 6 wk old, Gassy, fussy, infreq BM

    I do think I may have forceful letdown, but not THAT forceful. It never sprays. I'm trying to eliminate dairy for a week to see if that's the culprit. I'm only on day too and it's so hard! There's...

    Usually at the beginning of the feeding after several seconds. I am not engorged. The pain is typically only on my left side-my nipple is slightly tender now. She does choke, gasp, cough while...
