    Re: Getting ready for a change

    The number one thing that helped me was my faith (I am Catholic). I asked Jesus & Mary to watch over my son while I was not with him.

    Re: Worried won't be able to breastfeed

    I had that too, although I didn't know exactly what it was at the time. My son latched on and breastfed very well right after he was born. He passed his meconium quickly...maybe it was because I...

    Re: pumping takes a long time

    Check the min/max dial on the pump. I found that as my son got older I had to crank that up more to mimic the force of his nursing. Plus, I found that for "real" pumping (in place of a nursing...

    Re: He won't take a bottle now!!

    My son does that sometimes too. At this point it sounds like your LO is used to the bottle, and knows what to do. He is just choosing not to.

    As long as you keep it in a cooler with ice it should be good for a couple of days. It is basically mimicing a refridgerator. Also, since you mentioned you are flying, here are the latest TSA...

    I also got that sick feeling but it diminished and went away after about 6-8 weeks. It helped to be hydrated and nurse on a not-full but not-empty stomach. To be honest, it didn't mind it too much...
