  1. Re: how far should the nipple be drawn into the breastshield?

    I was wondering the same thing... My nipples always are really fat after pumping-they don't hurt though and go back to normal after awhile. I assumed this was normal, but I am also a new pumper and...

    Re: Doesn't take the bottle anymore.

    We had a similar problem with our 6 month old. Early on he took the bottle just fine, but then we just kind of stopped for a few months since he was always with me. When we tried to give him the...

    Re: Pumping in a semi-public place?

    Thanks for all the ideas, they really helped a lot. They whole thing ended up working out great. We had a break around noon and I asked if they had a private place where I could pump. There was an...

    Re: Pumping in a semi-public place?

    Thanks for the ideas. I just went out this afternoon and got a battery attachment, so I think that will make it much easier to figure out. Now I only have to find somewhere somewhat quiet and...

    Re: How to pump more efficiently ?

    For all of you that pump for 15 or 20 minutes or more-are you getting milk out the entire time? I pump for 10 minutes, but only get milk for the first 5. I usually only get 2-3 oz at a pumping...
  7. Re: Doesn't Seem like I am getting enough-Help!

    Thank you for the replies.

    I am not sure how much the pump was used before me. It seems pretty suction-ey-I do not put it on the highest level b/c it is sometimes uncomfortable. If the motor was...
  8. Doesn't Seem like I am getting enough-Help!

    Today is my first day away from my LO all day. I pumped at 8:30, 11, and 1:30 and so far have only gotten 7 oz. total. I checked in with DH and LO has eaten about that much already today at 2...

    Re: When to introduce a bottle

    If I had to do it again, I would introduce the bottle at 4-5 weeks and make sure I pumped enough to give LO a bottle at least every few days at the minimum. We originally gave him a bottle at 4-5...

    Re: Low milk supply? Other causes?

    I have been having a similar problem with weight gain. How much can they lose when they begin to get active?

    I am also having problems introducing my 6 month old to the bottle. We are currently trying to give him a cup and it seems to work a lot better. He has taken 1 oz a day from the cup for the last few...

    Re: when do i start pumping?

    I would at least try giving her the bottle within a few weeks. We are having a lot of trouble reintroducing the bottle. We introduced it first when he was 4 or 5 weeks and he took it right away just...

    Re: Won't take bottle

    Thanks for some of the suggestions. We tried cup feeding tonight, and he actually took almost a whole ounce!! That is SOOOO much better than the bottle, which he would only take a few drops of and...

    Re: Taking baby to work

    I also take my 5 1/2 month old with me to work. For naps, he sleeps in a pack and play in a room slightly away from where everyone works (it has no door though). I use a rain noise CD when he sleeps...

    Re: No feeding pattern

    My LO had cradle cap too. The only thing that got rid of it was using baby oil. In the morning and at night, I would put a little creamy baby oil onto his scalp and then gently massage it in with a...
