  1. Re: Pumping schedule and amount- does this sound correct?

    I would say yes and yes to your questions. I typically pumped every two hours at work. I yielded no more than about 2-3 oz a session typically. Maybe 4 oz, if it was the morning, and I was...
  2. Re: Almost 3 years nursing and not liking it

    This is a great point--I think that one of the things that makes setting some boundaries *so hard* is the idea that limits have to be "firm." I don't think any boundary has to be completely...
  3. Re: How much worse can sleep seriously get?!

    I have a sick toddler sleeping on me right now, but will try a short finger typed response--

    In my experience, months 7-13 ish were hardest for sleep. If you search through my old posts here you...
  4. Re: Advice on heating bottles when I am on night shift?

    I also left this up to the preference of my care provider. I was not on night shift, but my care provider was much happier with one of those rapid bottle warmers, because my daughter was the type of...

    Re: Pumping after bariatric surgery

    I would also suggest that if you are having significant trouble with your flange fit, you might want to consult with an IBCLC. They have extensive training and expertise in breastfeeding management...
  6. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    I, too, would guess that the only real "milky" nursing sessions for my daughter are at wake up, naptime (if I'm there; otherwise it's the "getting home from work" session), bedtime, and a couple of...

    Re: When Did Your Child Self Wean?

    :lol My 2.5 year old does the same exact thing when I need to leave for work in the morning, only she hasn't yet thought to ask for FIVE more sips. :)
  8. Re: Still nursing almost 16 mo old but starting to get comme

    This is so true for me, too! My grandmother, prior to seeing what the reality of a nursing toddler looked like, was one of the most vocally outspoken-against-toddler-nursing individuals I know. ...
  9. Re: Night nursing toddler - when does it get easier?

    I am not TTC, but I am nursing an almost 2.5 year old, who still nurses quite frequently at night. I agree with maddieb--it all got way easier for me psychologically when I stopped worrying about...
  10. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    I'm glad to hear this has been going so well for you!
  11. Re: Giving pumped milk at same time of day?

    I personally never worried about what time of day my milk was pumped--I just offered whatever I had, whenever I needed to for work separations or otherwise. No observable impact on my daughter's...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    I'm not sure what issues you're implying the moms on this site have, but whatever it is that you are referring to, it's important to remember that correlation does not imply causality. So I would...

    Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    Oh, sheesh, what an unexpected swing of events! That is so not what I would have expected as a response to the conversation you were having, and even though I'm not personally shy about talking...

    Re: Freezing breast milk

    If you have a properly functioning freezer that is part of a refrigerator, it should be safe for you to follow the 3-6 months guideline. You can pull the milk and check it periodically if you have...
  15. Re: Can I wash pump parts with cold water?

    It is often easier and quicker to remove caked on milk residue with warm water. But if you don't have any difficulties cleaning the parts with cold soapy water, it's a non-issue for you. The soap...
  16. Re: Help weaning 14 month medical reason

    I would also encourage you to call and discuss your planned medications with InfantRisk. Chances are very, very good that you can take the medication you need without interfering with your nursing...
  17. Re: 7 Month old only eats 4 times a day...wants to eat all n

    I fail to see how any of my suggestions for helping mom maximize her own sleep are not practical. Not practical for you yourself, perhaps. But you don't know the OP, you don't know her sleep...

    Re: Pumping at work

    I agree that pumping in your ambulance sounds pretty resourceful to me! In fact, I would probably do everything I could to find some "non-traditional" ways of getting the pumping sessions in that...
  19. Re: 7 Month old only eats 4 times a day...wants to eat all n

    I think the key word we need to add here is "some." Some babies can and will fall asleep on their own without crying. Not all. And there is absolutely nothing developmentally wrong with a 7 month...

    Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    I think the return of the period explains a lot! Whenever I have my period, I find nighttime nursing way more uncomfortable--and I don't believe it's anything different with my child's latch, I...
  21. Re: 13 mo who nurses and eats a lot! - Is he getting enough

    My daughter has been a pretty voracious solids eater since about the 10-11 month point. She doesn't typically sit for hours in her booster seat to eat, because she's too busy for all of that; she...

    Re: New schedule. pumping questions

    I'm having some trouble interpreting the actual lengths of your absences in order to weigh in on your planned schedule--I think those short shifts mean just a four hour separation? How long are you...
  23. Re: Pumping supplies need to be sterilized each time?

    I used the Medela microwave sterilizing bags every day at home, and refrigerated my pump parts in between pumping sessions while I was at work. This was just the easiest thing for me to do, and...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    Absolutely! My daughter has been getting the flu vaccine since she was old enough to receive them. Aside from all of the typical reasons I believe in vaccination, I work in health care and am...
  25. Re: # of nursing sessions when period returned

    Yeah, my evenings generally look like this:

    Arrive home from work: "Have milk! One, two boobahs!"
    Five minutes later: play
    One minute later: "Have milk!"
    Two minutes later: play
    One minute...
