    Re: Where to buy fenugreek?

    Whole Foods has Fenugreek, I live in Phoenix, too and that's where I've seen it. I just order from SwansonVitamins.com, tho.

    Re: Wasting storage bags

    Just so you know ... Lansinoh bottles fit the Medela pump! I was at Target looking for extra Medela bottles and cringing at the price, when DH said, "Why don't you use these purple ones? They're...

  5. Re: Repeating PIS Let Down Phase more than 1x / pumping session

    Well if staying in the letdown phase = oversupply, then I'm all over it, since I can't pump enough for DS and have to supplement =/

    But somehow I don't think it's going to be that easy >_<
  6. Re: Repeating PIS Let Down Phase more than 1x / pumping session

    I would love to hear more experiences with this ... I also get a LOT less pain with the letdown phase than the expression phase ... if the output is the same then why not? But then there must be a...

    My rant about horn sizes

    I have a Medela PISA and can not for the life of me figure out what size horns I need.

    There I was, keepin' on keepin' on, pumping every 2-3 hours (with a longer stretch at night for rest) and building my milk supply, watching it slowly grow ... I ordered some fenugreek to help it...

    Re: Hands free pumping

    I was frustrated with not being able to multitask so I took a sports bra and cut two holes in it and use that as a "pumping bra" ... it works great and is much cheaper than the one you get online ...
  13. Re: How is this supposed to add up/work?? At wit's end!!
