    Re: When to toss the bottle?

    Thank you for the advice. DS is on the tiny side - about 17 pounds, so I will continue to pump as much as I can during the day and keep sending it in bottles until he's year. He's good with a sippy...

    When to toss the bottle?

    This seems like a silly, silly question. I work full-time and my 10-month-old EBF DS is at a sitter during the day. I send two 5 oz. bottles and he eats solids all day too (yogurt, oatmeal,...

    Re: Anybody out there HATE pumping?

    Medals all around!!

    Yes...I'm totally hearing you. It's that THIRD pumping a day that really gets me.

    And...7 ounces is a lot during a pumping, for sure. I am good for 4 ounces, and if I...

    Re: Working mom wants to be leader

    Mommy1st, I am also a full-time working, exclusively breastfeeding Mommy. As we know, it is so beneficial for all breast-feeding women to have some sort of support, and this need is magnified for...

    Re: Oatmeal waking baby wake...

    I felt so bad that he reacted...and of course my mom is saying "I told you to give him RICE cereal." Told you so, told you so..."give him rice and he'll sleep for you..." Blah, blah, blah!!

    Re: Oatmeal waking baby wake...

    I used Earth's best oatmeal...so we're not getting "hidden" ingredients.

    I guess I'll just wait awhile before giving it again...I haven't done any other grains. He's doing great with his peas,...

    I eat wheat...would he have a problem with nursing after I eat wheat if the gluten is the issue?

    Thanks for the heads up...

    Re: Need Some Advise Please............

    Yes - it is really stressful when you know you need to pump enough milk for your LO for the next day...I'm living in that world too!

    - have you tried pumping both sides at the same time? That...

    Re: Waking up at night

    Gabriel's Mom, looks like our "Gabe's" are very similar. My guy is also 6.5 months and doing the same thing. He used to sleep through the night - he goes down quite nicely at 8pm, but at 1am he...
  13. Re: Daycare says breastfeeding over lunch will be an inconvenience

    That's awesome - I'm so glad you found someone who will support you! That is SO important.
    I think you did the right thing changing providers, if the 2 of you could not agree on lunch feeding...

    Re: Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    I agree with the previous posters...sounds like they are comforting her with the bottle.
    You said she is getting fussy when nursing at home - is that simply a slow-flow issue or is she still...

  16. Re: How long did you send breastmilk to daycare?

    I like this question too - I send 12 ounces of BM for my LO (he's at DC from 8:30 to 4:30), but he just started solids and doesn't finish all his bottles everytime now. I pump 3 x at work...and...
  17. Re: How big is your freezer (and your frozen stash)

    I used to rotate with frozen for daycare too...but then I would find if he wasn't finishing all his bottles during the day I would end up wasting the frozen (since it's only good for 24 hours)...so I...

    Re: Need a new pump

    I thought my PIS was dying too (it's 5 years old, it was my sister-in-law's) - but it was a change in the speed I needed (DS is 6 months old, so he's quite an efficient nurser). I've posted...

    Re: Increasing supply with PIS

    Sorry for my late reply - I usually just stay on speed #1 (at medium to max strength)...I get a faster let down on #1 and keep at a good flow. I tend to just stay there :)

    Re: Increasing supply with PIS

    My 6 month old DS only takes 4 ounces at a time...I think it's pretty rare that a breastfed baby would take 8 ounces (at least on a regular basis). BF babies need less than FF because every ounce is...
  22. Re: How big is your freezer (and your frozen stash)

    Wow...that's a lot of milk...I'm feeling a little stressed! I think I have about 48 ounces banked in my freezer (attached to my fridge, we don't have a deep freeze). I work full-time. I've been...
