    Re: When did you pump wean?

    I *just* pump weaned last week, and DD is about 13 months old. She'd been taking a sippy of EBM and soy milk at daycare, and since we reverse-cycle, she nurses about 6-7 times within a 24 hours...
  2. I *think* I'm done pumping...

    ...though I could be wrong.

    Yesterday, I plain forgot to pump what with having to run out to buy DSS' school supplies. I'd been down to pumping for 10-15 minutes and getting about 3 oz. When I...

    Re: Would you give up nursing if...

    Well, I'm sticking to my guns and not giving up on nursing, though I'm gradually pump weaning, just cause it's driving me NUTS to pump. Strangely enough, as if in response to this argument, DD...

    Re: 13 month old blues

    Just a thought here...could your DD be teething? Mine was on a semi-strike for the past week or so, and when I looked in her mouth to try to clean her gums, I saw (to my horror) 1 first year molar...

    Re: Would you give up nursing if...

    Let me add the following:

    DH has raised DSS on his own for 2 years, and since biomom wasn't around, DSS was bottle-fed, STTN at 6 months and DH used CIO as a means to achieve this. My DSS is now a...

    Would you give up nursing if...

    ...it caused great strain on your marriage?

    I'm posting this at my DH's request, because he wants to see what like-minded moms would say about his concerns.

    My DD is now 13 months old, and...
  9. When is pumping not worth it anymore?

    My DD is now 13 months old. I've been back at work since she was 10 months or so. I only pump once a day and have been gradually reducing time spent at the pump. I used to spend 35-40 minutes,...
  10. Nursing less + pumping less = sad mama

    My DD is 13 months old, and has gone to full-time daycare since she was 10 months old. She's been exclusively breastfed since birth but now, with me being gone all day and with being in daycare,...

    Re: baby too big???

    I'm in the same chubby boat, with a nice chunky LO. She was born a little late (42 wks +1) but was only 6 lbs 15 oz, long and skinny! It didn't last long though; she was over 19 lbs at 6 months old....

    Re: Juggling work and breastfeeding

    ITA with the previous poster: it can be done! I went back to work when DD was 10 months old and not eating any solids at all. I FREAKED out because I thought she'd starve at daycare. She eventually...

    Re: Almost a year

    I actually don't send anything for snacks because the daycare does such an awesome job at providing fresh organic food daily. I *used* to send bananas, all-natural apple sauce, Cheerios, or rice...

    Dealing with the comments

    My DD will be one this Sunday and I've been getting comments about weaning her since she was six months old. Obviously, I've been ignoring them, but now they come from my DH AND my parents, and it's...

    Re: Almost a year

    My DD will be one on Sunday and I've been back at work since she was 10.5 months. At the time, she ONLY nursed and didn't eat at all, so I was sort of freaked out about sending EBM with her to...

    Help! My thermometer broke!

    Ok, so I've been pumping and scalding for a few months now, and it has worked just fine for DD and for me. She only takes 4-5 oz of EBM at daycare anyhow, so I don't get stressed when I spill some...
  17. Re: When/how did you stop/slow down pumping at work

    Sorry to hijack, but I have further questions re: this topic.

    What are the "indicators" that you should stop pumping? Less pumping output? Less fullness in the breasts while away from baby?

    Is...
  18. Re: Crazy variations in pumping output

    Hmmm, usually once as soon as I get home and once to get her to bed. Then she might nurse twice a night (though sometimes it's 3 or 4 times), and then once right before I drop her off at daycare. So...
  19. Crazy variations in pumping output

    I just went back to work FT and DD (10 months) has been in FT daycare for over a month now. When she started, it went horribly and she was on a hunger strike for a few weeks, only nursing like mad in...
  20. Starting a new job and need to pump

    Ladies, I'd love your input. I'm starting a new job on Tuesday at a BIG law firm in town, and since my DD isn't super excited about solids yet, I still feel like I need to pump for her. I got myself...
  21. Re: Problems with my Ameda Purely Yours

    But why would my left boob let down for the Medela hand pump but not for the Ameda electric pump? Lefty is smaller and less productive than righty, but geez. I'll check the tubes and valves...
  22. Problems with my Ameda Purely Yours

    I just tried pumping with my new (second-hand) Ameda Purely Yours pump. It's been a while since DD nursed so I expected to get a lot from both breasts, but for some reason, I got 3 ounces from the...
  23. Reverse cyclers: do you pump?

    My DD has been in part-time childcare for the past month. It wasn't going super well, probably because she wasn't there on a consistent basis and she wasn't able to find a routine. Now that she's in...
  24. Re: 9 mo. old LO doesn't eat (refuses bottle), going to daycare

    I haven't yet found a job, but the daycare is closer to my home than to downtown which is most likely where I'll work, so there isn't an option to go nurse her at lunch. I'd be SO relieved if that...
  25. 9 mo. old LO doesn't eat (refuses bottle), going to daycare

    Mods, please move if necessary...

    I'm trying to transition my DD (9 months old) to full-time daycare since I'll be starting full-time work soon. So far, she's only been there 5 days in total,...
