    Re: What's the deal with Avacados?

    Let me also sing the praises of avocados. They are full of good fats, nutrient dense, and so easy to prepare. Oh, did I mention that they're tasty? I make some guacamole for DH and me and just mash...

    Re: Funny things LOs do while eating

    My little guy sticks his tongue out waiting for the spoon. As if that will shave valuable time off waiting for the food. It's too cute and too funny. Cracks me up each time.

    I'm wondering if anyone might have some advice/help.

    Re: Medela Pump-In-Style Advanced

    I always double pump, and pump for about 20-minutes.

    Sorry that you're getting less milk. Have you tried to stop and restart? Also, if you have multiple let downs then it may take you longer.
