    Thanks for the comments. My daughter has been crawling since 5 1/2 months and pulls to standing, but isn't walking yet. Our Dr. mentioned she had low muscle tone, but I personally don't see it. ...

    My 9 month old has completely fallen off her growth curve and has lost weight at both her 3 month and 9 month checkups, but my pediatrician is not taking this seriously. DD has only gained 1 lb...
  4. Poll: Re: Do you pump a bottle's worth in a session?

    I usually pump 4 times a day to get 3 4oz bottles. My first pumping session in the AM gives me enough for 2+ bottles, then 3 more sessions to complete the 3rd bottle.

    Re: Ameda reducing insert seal

    Hmmm...I can't push the insert in any farther:shrug It's like I have air leaking between the flange and insert. I wonder if the problem is that the flange is not BPA-free but the insert is, KWIM?

  8. Re: Nipple confusion/screaming at brest

    Thanks for writing back!

    This is my 2nd DD. 1st DD breastfed until she was 2 and did fine at daycare with EBM in a bottle. I guess every child is different.

    Re: Lying down while breastfeeding

    After feeding on one side, I usually bring DD in close and roll to the other side with her. She always eats and sleeps with my arm under her head so it doesn't take much to giver her a little hug...

    Re: Screaming at the breast

    I was just reading something on Kelly Mom that says that I'm using the worst nipple for breast feeding. I am using the flat Nuk nipples. They seemed to work great for my older DD, but obviously...

    Not sure where to post this; feel free to move where appropriate. DD (3 months old) takes 3 4 oz bottles of BM at daycare each day (Gerber Nuk slow-flow nipples). In the evening her first 2...

    Re: Do your nipples swell?

    Thanks for the feedback! I discovered that 1) the pump suction was too high and I could pump, get milk, and it didn't hurt and 2) oddly enough I need a larger size flange for later in the pumping...

    Do your nipples swell?

    I'm just wondering if it's normal to get swollen nipples after pumping? Like twice the size almost? Also, does anyone find pumping painful? Any response/advice would be so appreciated!

    Thanks for the advice. DD has been using sippy cups for a while with water in them, so I'm hoping she'll adjust pretty well to EBM.
