    Re: Pumping Questions

    :hug Getting the whole pumping/nursing dance can be so confusing! Sounds like you're doing a good job, though.

    I wouldn't worry too much about pumping at different times during the work day. A...

    Re: Pumping while nursing

    :lol So cute!

    Maybe try when he's nursing to sleep. If he's drowsy, he might be less likely to object.

    Re: Anyone make homemade babyfood??

    Yes, you can definitely freeze the purees. I put them in ice cube trays, freeze them and then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag.

    You could also just consider mashing the fruit with a fork...

    Re: ARGH! Biting!

    Hi ladies - my biting problem has turned into a nursing strike. :cry I can still get him to nurse if he's already asleep. So he's getting milk through the night and during the day bottles of EBM...

    Re: ARGH! Biting!

    Thanks djs.mom! I will try to pay better attention to the latch. I've certainly gotten lazy about that (heck, I'm lazy about everything - that's why we nurse and co-sleep :lol).

    ARGH! Biting!

    DS is 9mos. and a few months ago when he bit me for the first time while nursing I did the usual reaction (stopped nursing, said No!, put him down, etc.). It worked fine and aside from a couple of...

    Re: started solids but no poop?

    I think it's pretty normal for their bowels to take a little time to adjust to food. I wouldn't worry about it just yet. That being said, I always heard that you should wait on any cheese or yogurt...
  8. Re: BM not good after 6 months of nursing??

    Yes, that's right. After 6 months, your breasts start dispensing coca-cola. Very bad for the baby. :snicker

    Re: advice much needed!

    :hug What a rough start, but it sounds like you're doing a great job nursing him up strong. :clap My twins were 33 weekers and your LO sounds a lot like my DS who was 3lbs 3oz at birth and 4lbs 4oz...

    Re: Is it too late?

    :hug Welcome - sorry you're having a rough time but I agree with the previous posts -- it's definitely not too late! You've gotten a lot of good advice already. I would also suggest a nurse-in. ...

    Re: Gabe's new thing

    How about letting him keep a hand on the other boob (under your shirt of course) while he's nursing?
  13. Re: 3 mo will not take bottle and have to go back to work! :(

    Have you tried having someone else give the bottle? He might just be playing with the bottle because he's holding out for the real thing. It might help even to leave the house altogether when the...

    Re: 35 week breastfeeding

    :hug I don't know anything about vasa previa but I know how scary it is to face a premature c-section. I hope everything goes well.

    In terms of breastfeeding, a lot probably depends. I had...

    Re: Wasting storage bags

    I have a PIS and pump straight into the Medela bottles, bring them home and DS drinks from them the next day. I probably have about 12 of them that I cycle through. I only use the bags to freeze.

    Re: Jealous of SAHD

    Are you jealous of his time with your DD or wishing he would do more housework? Both valid - just different problems.

    For us, it helped to separate the parenting from the housework. There's no...
  17. Re: Should I single pump or double pump at work?

    I always double pump at work. Your body doesn't respond to the pump in the same way it responds to a baby and so pumping both sems like it does a better job of keeping up my supply. Also, I find...

    Re: Pumping while nursing

    Well, you've probably already tried these but it only worked for me if I nursed in the football hold on a nursing pillow. Then the pillow did the work of holding LOs head up so I had more hands to...
