    Re: What do you do for your self?

    I come here and read and post with all you wonderful ladies!! Most of the time I post while I'm pumping at work. I have my own office, so I just close the door and pump and type. Also, when my LO...

    Re: Working moms supplementing with formula

    I have been successfully pumping for quite a while now. I have never had a "stash" of BM. I pump enough for the next day. On the rare occassion that I am not feeling well or haven't pumped enough...

    Re: Full time work and sleep loss

    I also was co-sleeping with our son until he was 9 months old. He is now 11 months and finally sleeps in his own crib. He has still been getting up 1-2 times at night to nurse. I guess my hubby...

    Do what's best for you and your family. You know in your heart what is right. I am a working mom and I love my job, but I also realize that it's not for everyone. Just as being a SAHM is not for...

    Re: Returning to work soon - need advice

    I, too, am a believer in co-sleeping. My lo is just now sleeping through the night (in his own crib) and he is 10 months old. Prior to this he slept with us and would nurse frequently at night. ...

    It's very difficult to leave your lo at daycare, especially the first time. I have a wonderful provider. I was able to stop in whenever I wanted and did so for quite a long time. The question...

    Re: Working Mom needs support

    Bfing can be challenging. You are doing wonderfully. Don't forget to give yourself credit. Like the pp said, try to increase the number of feedings in the evening/night. My baby is 10 months old...

    Re: New here and a question about WIC

    WIC is wonderful!! I was on WIC all through my pregnancy and for the first 6 months. It really helps out. I have a great job, that pays pretty well, but at the time I was the only one bringing in...
  11. Re: When to pump and how often? One breast or two?

    If you're worried about overproducing, then I'd say empty the other breast (the one that your LO didn't nurse from). Completely emptying the breast causes more milk production, so if that's not your...

    Re: used pumps?

    I borrowed a pump for awhile. Then I found the PIS on a garage sale for only $25 dollars. I cleaned everything well and haven't had any problems. I know it's not ideal, but you don't have much...

    Re: Help! Can't achieve "let-down" to pump!

    Sometimes looking at my LO's picture or just thinking about him helps. I guess it's kind of like meditation or guided imagery. I just imagine holding my LO and breastfeeding him. At first when I...

    Re: Nursing while teething

    My little guy teeths for a month before you can even see any teeth coming in. He's constantly attached! It can be very exhausting, but it will pass.

    Re: Really infrequent bowel movements....

    This is a hard one. I thought my LO was bad when he was born and only going every 5 days. The longest he went without a BM was 10 days. He was only breastfeeding at the time. We tried EVERYTHING!...
  16. Re: Gets full off one breast...Do what with the milk of the other side?

    My LO only feeds off of one breast each feeding and has been doing this since he was a few weeks old. We were cosleeping at the time and it was just easy to feed him on one side and we'd both drift...

    Re: Should I pump in the middle of the night?

    My thought is, your body will produce as much as you need. I BF on demand and only pump when I'm away from my baby. If he wakes up every 2-3 hours again, your baby won't starve. She might just BF...

    My LO would drink a gallon if you would have let him. He would drink whatever was put in front of him. My daycare provider just had to look for cues that he was getting full. When he would start...

    Re: What's Wrong With Me?

    Having sore nipples can definitely affect you. Try shorter sessions, but more often. Ultimately, try to relax.

    Re: How much milk do YOU send to daycare?

    My guy would drink and drink and drink. Whatever we gave him he would drink it. I interpreted this as him being hungry. I don't think he knew any better. Thanks to my daycare provider who is more...

    Re: Whats your ratio of foremilk to hindmilk?

    I agree. I know that my milk is clearer when I haven't pumped for an extended period of time. I'm assuming there's less hindmilk. I really don't worry about the ratio, I just figure that my body...

    Re: How much milk do YOU send to daycare?

    My baby is 9 months old and I send about 8-12 oz for an 8 hour day. My milk pretty much keeps up with his demand, so I send all my milk to daycare. It's important to keep an open line of...

    That's what I thought too, until I was unable to breastfeed for awhile due to the baby making my nipples so raw that I bled. Anyway, I pumped exclusively for about 3 weeks and found myself wanting...

    Re: When you say you get x oz...

    I also double pump with my PIS for about 10-15 minutes. I usually get anywhere from 2-5 oz from each side depending on the frequency of pumping.

    First of all I commend you for pumping while your baby is at daycare. It can be very difficult, but I feel that it really pays. My LO is 9 months old and he has two bottles each day. I really try...
