    Re: How to Dreamfeed?

    I guess my concern is that I will be at work before her morning feed (if her sleep pattern holds). And I would rather dream feed than pump, but we shall see what her thoughts on the matter are. I...

    How to Dreamfeed?

    DD is just shy of 3 months. She usually eats around 7-8 PM, around 12-1, and around 6-7 AM. She doesn't always sleep through those long stretches, but if she wakes up during those times, she usually...

    Re: when to start pumping?

    I am going back to work soon. I started pumping about 3 weeks before I will go back. I now pump a couple ounces a few times a week. I had about 25 ounces in the freezer when I went back to work after...

    Re: Outing with breast milk bottle?

    This is basically what we did. Keep the bottle in a cooler until LO is ready for it, and then heat it up. If you are at a restaurant, they will bring you a cup of hot water. Once when traveling, we...
  5. Re: 6 month old will only take bottle from DH

    Have you asked your DH how he gives the bottles? My DH insists on doing it on the same pillows I nurse on. Maybe you can find some detail like that which will help? At 6 months, does she hold her own...

    Re: going back to work -- worried

    I have been there. My son was the same way as a baby. He is now 2. He never took a pacifier, although DH tried like crazy. I was so worried I sent pacifiers to day care and they tried, but he still...

    Re: Wean Preparation & Mixed Feelings

    I know this is a little old, but I wanted to answer the sleep question. In my case, night weaning made nights worse. DS went from waking up for ~15 minutes 1-2 times per night to waking up only once...

    Re: Teacher Back To Work at 16 Months

    I am not a teacher, but I stopped pumping at work at 16 months. I never noticed any supply issues on weekends. Many moms stop pumping at a year and continue to nurse on weekends. My understanding is...

    Re: 2.5oz Bottle?

    I remember reading somewhere, that a 'tip' for sending milk to day care was to use small bottles so that it didn't look like a small portion. But given the bottle selection in stores, that tip must...

    2.5oz Bottle?

    So DD seems to like a 2.5oz bottle. What should I put that in for day care? I have been using 5oz bottles, but it looks ridiculously empty. I know there are 4oz bottles. Are there smaller ones? Or...
  11. Re: How Often to Give Practice Bottles?

    I am pretty sure 3 different sized bottles would cause too much confusion. It's a day care center and while there are 2 teachers officially assigned to the room, there are going to be subs in and out...
  12. Re: How Often to Give Practice Bottles?

    OK, it probably is just for my own reassurance. But I also want to do it a few times so I have a good idea how big to make the bottles for day care. We will aim for 1-2 a week. Often enough that we...

    Re: pumping?

    I think the best way to avoid getting an oversupply is to only pump when the baby gets a bottle. You will have to violate this to get milk for the first bottle, but one time shouldn't cause over...
  14. How Often to Give Practice Bottles?

    DD is 8 weeks old and just had her first bottle. She took it just fine. I go back to work in 6 weeks. How often should we keep giving her bottles to keep her used to them? Is once a week enough?...

    Re: Nursing around Coworkers?

    I think this was part of my problem. I KNOW there is no reason to be uncomfortable, and between the 2 kids I have nursed just about everywhere: in front of family, friends, at funerals, churches,...

    Re: 1 Month Old Not Pooping

    DD has continued to poop less and less often, going up to 3 days between poops. That was not fun because when she did go, it required outfit changes for both of us, washing the cover on the nursing...

    Re: 1 Month Old Not Pooping

    1) She is peeing like normal. I have been watching that pretty closely. At least 8 really wet diapers per day.
    2) I haven't been counting nursing sessions, but I think it's enough. About every 2-4...

    1 Month Old Not Pooping

    DD is 4.5 weeks old. She hasn't pooped in about 36 hours. Should I be worried or is that ok at this age? I know older babies can go days without pooping, but I don't know what age that can start at....

    Re: Carrier for Nursing?

    Hum. I don't think the kangaroo hold is what I tried last time. I will have to see if I can borrow it again to try.

    It turns out there is a BWI chapter about 2 hours away, but not sure I want to...

    Carrier for Nursing?

    I have a 3.5 week old who loves to be held all the time and always wants to nurse whenever my toddler wants me to make a meal or play outside or something. I know the general advice is to use a...
  23. Re: Almost 4 months still nursing/taking bottles every 2-3 h

    My son took 3oz bottles every 2 hours at day care until 11 months. He started spacing bottles out to 3 hours after that as he ramped up his solids. I never worried about it. I guess I didn't know I...
