  1. Re: Moving - How to Transport Freezer Stash

    You can buy plugin coolers with car adapters but not sure how cold they get to keep it frozen. 500 oz is a lot. Could you donate some and move less? I can barely fit my 50 oz or so in my freezer!

    Re: Two bottles a day at daycare?

    That seems like a huge bottle to me. Even 5 oz sounds a lot, although if you can pump enough for 3 each day and he still nurses when you're home he is probably a hungry guy. My LOs only had about...
  3. Re: Is breastfeeding really the problem?

    It's the doctors; not you. I actually had a pregnancy group with many first time mothers (I was to be a second). When a lactation consultant came to talk to us she asked about barriers to...
  4. Re: Hypothyroid - Is T3 hormone required for laction??

    I have very mild hypothyroidism and am only on levothyroxine. Lowest dosage though. Not taking anything else and am breastfeeding my second baby. Have lost track of my test results since I was having...
  5. Re: Pumping schedule and amount- does this sound correct?

    I use a car adapter for mine. I've never bothered with batteries -- the adapter came with mine and I made sure to use it! You just need a cover and a hands-free nursing bra. Some people make their...
  6. Re: Pumping schedule and amount- does this sound correct?

    I think your workday schedule sounds good. I pump in the car on the way to work (sometimes it's right after LO nurses) so if you commute to work by car maybe that would help you get one session in...
  7. Re: Lost my supply for my 5mo old. Desperate, please help!

    Are you using the Hygeia horns? I had a huge drop in supply using the ones they sent and switched to my Medela flanges (in the same size), and everything improved quickly. Another mom on here said...

    Re: clawing

    My baby seems to have sharp nails no matter how often I trim them -- I call them his claws. And he has been digging into me and scratching me for a long time. I do not remember this with my...
  9. Re: Ideas for adding in pump time at home?

    Based on what you're saying about your afternoons and your commute, I would recommend trying this. I thought it was a crazy idea with my first and didn't bother with it, but knew I had to do it with...

    Re: How to relax for let-down?

    Are you using the same pump at work and at home? I've never had a letdown issue, but I still try to make the room as comfortable as possible. We have two big overhead lights, but I only turn on...

    Re: im hungry all the time

    I was hungry all the time with both kids. Still am to a degree but not as bad. Oh, and I am one of the lucky people who can't lose weight while breastfeeding so it stresses me out. But yes, I would...

    Re: going back to work and logistics

    Not sure where in NOVA you are but I rented a pump from an IBCLC in Nokesville or Catlett or somewhere in that area. It was a bit cheaper than the local hospital. If you're near there let me know...

    Re: pumping while driving?

    I think all you need is a car adapter for the pump and a cover and you should be set. I pump on my 30-minute commute to work in the mornings. Is it safe? Can't say. It feels a little distracting but...

    Re: Need help with pacifier weaning

    I always like to attribute funny thoughts to my son since he doesn't talk yet (well, "No" and "Yeah!") but I've said that when he's crying from hurting and I try to nurse him, he seems like he's...

    Re: Need help with pacifier weaning

    I don't have any tips for weaning off the pacifier, but here's how pacifier works in my family -- pretty much the same for both kids. We use it only for sleep and for major upsets. Neither of my...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    Darn -- I don't know which is worse -- the pump slump or the period (well, both, actually!)! I don't need to go back to that hassle! It took me months to get used to my Diva Cup, and now I'm sure...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    I've tried everything I can think of so far this week, and nothing is changing my output. So I guess I'll have to wait and see if my period is approaching. I'm trying to limit the amount of freezer...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    Thank you both. Today I changed out the tube and filter on my Hygeia (I had recently changed the membranes). I'm going to try out my other pump again while working from home tomorrow and see what...

    dreaded pump slump

    I was doing so well with pumping, I was getting overly confident -- even at 9 months I was pumping more than my son needed (running out of room in our crowded freezer), so had cut down my pumps in...
  20. Re: Best Cooler Bag to Fit All Medela Equipment

    I have a couple small coolers, and I can fit all of my bottles and my shields in the bags. I think I usually fit about 4 bottles. You may just have to get more of a lunch cooler than a pumping...

    Re: Help for friend in NEPA

    She was going to contact the LLL leaders. She was on the fence about breastfeeding before birth, so I didn't want to be too pushy. She seemed to think she could continue nursing for 5 minutes and...

    No -- I did call someone that I found online who was not associated with a local hospital. My friend is concerned about the cost. It's funny, I felt the same with my first, but with the second...

    Help for friend in NEPA

    My friend in the Wilkes-Barre area of PA is getting the usual supplement runaround and wants to nurse exclusively. I think the IBCLCs I found online were part of the bad advice. Anyone know a good...

    Good for you. Just come on here for more support as you need it. It is amazing to see how formula-fed culture really dictates so much of what is believed about parenting in our culture. I have a...
  25. Re: Night nursing toddler - when does it get easier?

    I conceived baby #2 when my first was 22 months old. No night weaning but my period had been back for a year. I was 37. It had taken 6 months of actively trying at 34 to conceive my first and only...
