  1. sudden supply decrease and fenugreek

    My supply has decreased over the past week, dramatically. I used to get 14-16oz per night, now I'm lucky to get 10 the past few nights. My boobs are also really itchy after pumping-not the nipples,...
  2. urgent help! Need tubing NOW for ameda

    WHen I got to work last night I realized that the caps on the tubing on my ameda hospital grade pump had melted together in the steam sterilizer. I don't know what happened, but I was unable to pump...

  4. Re: Do I need a new pump? not emptying breasts

    I have been thinking perhaps it is no longer functioning properly-the suction can go in and out sometimes like you said-but I've only had it for 3 months!
  5. Re: Do I need a new pump? not emptying breasts

    Thanks for all the replies! I'm frustrated again this morning. i only got 9oz last night (3oz per seesion). which is fine if that's what I get-I'll learn to accept it. But when I got home and pumped...

  12. Re: using ice in cooler, and bottle warmer

    it wouldn't be frozen milk-it would be fresh from the day before. (actually, night before). If it were me I'd find it easier to use water but DH likes the idea of a warmer.
  13. 2 more questions-how to know when there's no more milk, and increasing

    So if I can't squeeze out any more milk after pumping and my boobs feel soft, can I assume that they have been adequately emptied?

    I'm going back to work tomorrow night and i've been pumping in...

    Oops! Put frozen milk on door.

    I have been pumping to build up a freezer stash for about a week now. I put the bags in the door of the freezer. I just read that you shouldn't do this. Do I need to throw out all my milk?:cry:cry
