  1. Re: How many hours a day are you away from LO?

    12 hours a day, five to six days a week. Plus every other weekend, I work a 30 hour shift on Saturday AM to Sunday noon. On those days, my husband brings my DS in to the hospital in the evening, so...
  2. Re: Full Time Working Mom Nursing Past One

    I took my LO to work until she was 12 MO. I started a new job when she was 15 MO and could not bring her. I was concerned about what would happen to our BF relationship, but it hasn't changed. I...

    Re: Been trying to nurse for five months

    My LO would get angry at first with the SNS (so did I). I just had to persevere. Once she got used to it it worked great.
  4. Re: How many hours a day are you away from LO?

    Thank God for co-sleeping. I really feel like she gets that time lost during the work days by nursing and snuggling.

    Re: Been trying to nurse for five months

    Hi Mama,
    You are not alone! I struggled so long before we got to EBM. She was 5.5 MO! I also know how hard it is. One thing that really helped me was the SNS. It helped get my supply up and got...
  6. Re: How many hours a day are you away from LO?

    Oh I'm just asking emotionally. I'm lucky that I was able to take her to work until she was 12 MO and then I took 2 months off before starting another job. I still pump to keep up supply, but at...
  7. How many hours a day are you away from LO?

    I am away 11 hrs (including commute). I see her for an hour at lunch, but sometimes I work more hours. Just wondering if I'm crazy to think these are too many hours away.
  8. Re: Trying to figure out what went wrong

    My labor in the hospital was only three hours and I was on an IV.
  9. Trying to figure out what went wrong

    Not sure if I'm posting in the right place since my LO is 16 MO and we're still breast feeding. I'm just trying to figure out what happened in her first two weeks of life that caused her to lose a...

    How much is normal?

    Hi mama's,
    I have a 15 MO who nurses frequently (I think 6-8 times/ day including night). I started working on Monday and haven't pumped in about 8 months. I'm pumping to keep supply up and to...

    Re: Baby at work

    I brought my LO to work until she was 13 MO and someone called the legal department. I wasn't able to get any work done so my sister came and watched her and I would nurse her for food and for...
  12. Re: Plz Help. Nipple Confusion in 4 month old and tired of pumping.

    If you can handle this battle, don't give up. I had the same issue as you and was ready to give up. I started using the SNS and right when I had resigned myself to having to supplement forever, at...

    Re: Low Diaper Output Again

    I think I'm going to try letting her run naked for a large part of the day next weekend. That's a good idea.

    Re: Low Diaper Output Again

    Thanks for all the encouragement mama's! I feel better and things have improved. It's so easy to panic about supply when it's been such a struggle.

    Re: Low Diaper Output Again

    She did well with solids today, but still just 2 wet diapers and two dirty diapers. She's definitely not sick. :shrug

    Low Diaper Output Again

    Hi Mamas,
    My 13 MO LO has had only two wet diapers a day for three days. This has happened before and we did so much testing at the doctor and monitored her closely and she was fine and in fact...

    Re: Going to work at 15 months

    Thanks for this DJ's mom. Honesty and someone's actual experience are really important for me to hear. Right now she only has solids twice a day and snacks about once a day. I was going to add a...

    Going to work at 15 months

    Hi Everyone!
    My LO is only about 11 MO. I currently take her to work so she nurses quite a bit I think about 8 times per day. It's actually too often to count. When she's about 15 MO, I will start a...

    Does your LO do this?

    Hi there,
    Lately my 10.5 MO LO has been wanting to nurse all night long. But she does this weird thing where she will wake to nurse, pop off then a few seconds later whimper and moan to get back on...

    Re: Latching on, Not drinking, Losing Weight

    Your situation sounds exactly like my situation. I ended up with a lot of problems and only after she was about 5 1/2 months did we end up EBF. I just want to tell you what I wish I had done...

    Hi Dj's mom,
    Thanks for your reply it's really helped me not to feel like it's the end of the world if she's not able to nap down in her preferred way. Hopefully she won't give my DH too much...
  23. Weaning from nap nursing on weekdays

    I nurse my LO to sleep. I bring her to work with me which is great, but since she is starting to become more talkative and loud, she may become a disturbance and I may have to stop bringing her. My...

    Re: Low Diaper Output Update

    Hi Andrea,
    It's clear unless it's a super gigantic diaper. It smells but not too strongly. The Dr. did suggest that some people have bigger bladders, but why the change?
    The Dr. doesn't really...
