    Re: Forced sudden weaning

    Well IMO it's pretty hard and confusing. At 38 months nursing is about much much more than food. It's a bonding part of your relationship that your child associates with you and love. And it is...

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    This is the right advice. You don't want to go longer between sessions because it's all supply and demand. If you continue to miss the session eventually your body will assume that the pumping...
  3. Re: Can't keep up with baby's demand at childcare--overfeedi

    If you are too full and uncomfortable, don't wake the baby-PUMP! Having a small freezer stash should help alleviate the pressure for you to have to over pump at work. And now maybe you can move to 4...

    Re: Fridge to Freezer?

    The baby will never need 6 or 7 oz at a time though. And once milk has been frozen and thawed it's shelf life is much shorter. So that's a recipe for throwing more out. Freeze in 2-4oz increment. The...

    Re: Baby gags at solids

    Gagging means Not ready. Put away and try again in two weeks. We did BLS and My son didn't actually put something in his mouth and keep it there until almost 7.5 months. And even then he didn't...

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    How old is your baby? I think that beginning both pumping sessions on the less productive breast and coming BACK to it after you empty the better performing breast would be my initial suggestion. So...

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    How often are you pumping at work?
  8. Re: Can't keep up with baby's demand at childcare--overfeedi

    The rule of thumb is 1-1.5 oz of milk for every hour away. A breastfed baby is not likely to EVER take 6 oz in a feeding. It sounds like they are feeding your baby like a formula fed baby. Don't...

    Re: Breastfeeding and struggling

    Patience. 5 weeks in is still so early. It takes most dyads usually 6-8weeks at least to find their groove. When people are talking to you about what a wonderful, bonding experience breastfeeding is...
  10. Re: Cows Milk and hard poop; prune juice a no go. What to do

    Oh! OK! So Karo syrup works. And also? All P fruits. So if you are giving her plenty of solids, Pears, Peaches, Plums also loosed things up. And besides Milk, feed her water and keep her away from...

    Re: Feeling depleted

    Yep. By 4 months you shouldn't be feeling any fullness unless you are missing feedings. The milk should regulate.
  13. Re: Pumping at work after one year mark

    I wouldn't really worry about it yet. But by the time most women have been nursing for a year they can be trusted to make milk on demand for a baby. So usually if you begin pump weaning at the year...

    Re: I need help!!

    I agree with maddie. Why do you think your baby needs 6oz at any feeding? 2oz IS in the normal range. You could make more. And your baby could eat more. But if you are nursing on demand, you would...

    Re: When to stop pumping

    But why do you have to freeze it? Fresh milk can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. Anything fresh you pump should be take to day care the next day and if not used can be left in the fridge...

    Re: To night wean or not to wean

    So, are you in the throes of it right now? Because the resentment you are describing sounds spot on how I felt with BOTH sets of molars. Which ARE hard on you but also super hard on them....
  17. Re: How much EBM should I send to daycare?

    50oz is actually a PROPER freezer stash if yu are just supplementing your own milk! And really if you only is drinking 6oz a day then you will not need to send much. But Especially with new providers...
  18. Re: How much EBM should I send to daycare?

    I would send her with AT LEAST 4oz every day. That isn't much milk in an 8-9hour day, and eventually you may find that showing up in the middle of the day and leaving her again is really disruptive....

    Re: Such stinky gas in 4.5 month old

    The real take away from this post is the DARKER RABBIT PELLET POOP. Which you won't have until your baby starts eating solid food. Because often when babies start not going as often mother project...

    Re: Such stinky gas in 4.5 month old

    They are NOT constipated. But once their sphincter muscles develop, it's completely normal for breastfed babies NOT to poop everyday. Chalk it up as another benefit of breastfeeding. Sometimes you...

    Re: Such stinky gas in 4.5 month old

    YES. Ignore. It stinks because it's passing the poop that's sitting up there. When my baby pooped every time he ate? It smelled like burnt popcorn. When he started going every couple of days? NOT SO...

    Re: Help! My baby is a piglet.

    You aren't supposed to introduce artificial nipples for the 1st 4-6 weeks if they can be avoided. That article seems like it is speaking about the newborn period. But the 6 week point is the perfect...
