  1. Re: Introducing solids as a vegan family

    We are vegetarian, not vegan, but we don't drink milk. My kids eat cheese and yogurt -- the cheese way too much for my liking -- and we eat some eggs. My kids have both tested fine for iron. ...
  2. Re: Second week back to work - pumping way less than last we

    This happened to me, as well -- I think it is common. Your body starts reducing milk due to the pumping, whereas before you were nursing baby all day (and possibly pumping, as well). I just made...

    Re: Troubleshooting excess Lipase

    I had the best luck with the Lansinoh bags. The Honeysuckles were more environmental (biodegradable), but most of mine ended up leaking. But we just thawed them in a clean bowl to catch the leak so...

    Re: Troubleshooting excess Lipase

    Are you storing all of your milk in one type of bag? I would try a couple different types (the double-zipper being my preference) before deciding it's definitely lipase. I, and a few moms on here,...

    Re: Am I pumping enough?

    I would pump in the car on the way to work, which was sometime right after baby nursed. Do you commute by car? If so, a car set-up is pretty easy.
  6. Advice for textured toy or other distraction

    My DS is 20 months now. He is always trying to grope or fondle or pinch me while nursing or lying on me in bed, and if I move his hand he tries to stick his finger in my belly button or dig at a...

    Re: Would it decrease my milk supply

    If you don't want to go back to every day, I would say maybe vary 3 times and 2 times every other day, or save the 2 times for very busy days once a week or something. That's what I did for a while...

    Re: Effect on milk intake after solid

    I never used cerelac, so it is tough to say. If it is a type of rice cereal, I would avoid too much as that can be constipating. I just gave my baby some homemade vegetable and fruit purees,...

    Re: Effect on milk intake after solid

    The amount of milk should remain the same -- if you are adding solids it is in ADDITION to the milk. Baby should always drink your milk first (by nursing or bottle) and then have solids. We usually...
  10. Re: being scolded by ped for breastfeeding

    I agree with Mommal -- I understand your family's views, but we may need to help you figure something out. Losing your supply isn't going to help your baby, and you only technically need to pump or...
  11. Re: being scolded by ped for breastfeeding

    Here's my experience with breastfeeding and iron -- we are vegetarian. No doctors discouraged extended breastafeeding, but theorized without meat in our diets my kids would need supplementation. ...

    Re: Pumping at work question

    Do you have a car commute to work? If you nurse your LO when you drop him off at daycare, you can then maybe squeeze in a pumping session on the way to work. I used to do that, and while it added...

    Re: Kombucha

    Why is it a no-no? I drink some on occasion while nursing. I know you need to trust your supplier, or be cautious of brewing at home, but those were the only issues I can think of. I prefer...
  14. Re: Significant pump output drop off

    Huh, that seems kind of unfair. Are you allowed to make up your own sippy cups and send them? My LO has a sitter at our house, but he's 15 months and still drinks bottles because he won't have milk...

    Re: back to work

    You will be surprised how little sleep you can survive on once you start back, but you will likely not feel great for some time! I am now dealing with my second child while working full-time, and it...

    Re: My LC is out of advice! Blocked duct

    Your situation definitely sounds icky. This is definitely an area overlooked by the medical community. My LC referred me to a doctor when I had mastitis twice and had a mysterious lump (my midwife...

    Re: My LC is out of advice! Blocked duct

    I may be missing something, but what specifically makes you think you have a plug? The supply decrease? The lump you're feeling? I'm wondering if you don't have one at all -- I was misled to...

    I know nothing about leaky gut, but I recall hearing this story on NPR while driving one day. There may be some good info for you or people to contact. I do recall whatever the parents started...

    Re: Pumping schedule after 12 months

    I've never used a Freestyle, but on the photos it looks similar to a PISA, which I have used. Make sure to change the little white membranes regularly. I even occasionally changed out the yellow...

    Re: Pumping schedule after 12 months

    I will tell you what I did/am doing. It may answer some of your questions:

    I continued pumping after 12 months for both kids. I can't entirely remember how I went about it with my daughter, but...
  21. Re: Trouble with weaning and weight of a breastfed 8 month o

    I'm no doctor, and cannot speak to the rate of growth overall, but your daughter is right about where my son was weight-wise at that age (I don't remember exactly) and he was born 2 lbs heavier. ...

    Since you have a long time until your child starts daycare, can you start off with just mornings a few days a week and see how it goes, and then build up to longer days that would include naps? We...

    Re: Vent about annoying nursing habits

    My son is a pain in the neck, too, and has been since birth. My daughter would bite occasionally, and there are times he's bitten me 10-12 times a day. I set him down and he immediately starts...

    Re: Breast pumps

    I highly recommend having more than one pump, actually. If one breaks down or is acting strange, it is extremely stressful, so knowing you have a backup saves on that stress. I have used both...
