    Re: May need to wean soon, how ?

    I am so sorry you have to deal with this dilemma. My LO also wouldn't take a sippy cup. Then she got a little cup with plastic straw and took to it right away! It might be worth a try.

    I've heard...

    LO is 7 months and doing great! Yet, her pattern has changed and it concerns me. She's been hard to feed lately, in that at most she will snack by day and nurse multiple times at night. When I say...

    Re: New job, hours and pumping probs

    Here's an update on the new job and pumping situation. Turns out I wasn't booted from the office, at least for this week.

    I've decided to go about getting what I need gradually with as much tact...
  4. Re: Back to work Monday and I have lots of questions

    I'm guessing your post got lost in the transition to the new site.

    Re: weight gain

    Sorry you haven't gotten a response. I'm not good about metric, but it sounds like weight gain has slowed. 400 grams is closer to a pound , which is good. Slower weight gain is OK as long as the...

    Personally, I would not risk taking milk with you on the plane if you are traveling alone. You can arm yourself with as many official written policies as you want, but it still comes down to what...

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but do you pump? I can get some really scary looking red rings around my areolas when I pump too long. Of course I have no idea what ring worm looks like, so it...

    I rent the Symphony and have a PISA. Output is pretty much the same, but for me, Symphony does it in a much kinder, gentler fashion than the PISA. I found that even with the same horns, the PISA's...

    Re: LOST MY SUPPLY HELP!! -- urgent

    Pumping doesn't tell you much. If you pumped after a feed, not much output could mean LO is feeding efficiently.

    Check LOs latch. Eat oatmeal. Fenugreek capsules help.

  23. Re: longer feeding sessions at 11 weeks

    Sounds like your LO may be feeding longer to boost your supply as part of the growth spurt process.
