    pumping

    I've started weaning because I exclusively pump. I hate it and after almost 9 weeks of it I want to throw in the towel. However, I feel SO guilty about having to use formula and have a deep sense of...

    Re: Pumping Predicament

    Massage your breasts while pumping to help empty them. Don't just sit there.

    Pull flanges off your breasts once in awhile and put them back on. Makes me let down more.

    Cluster pump to increase...

    Re: Not enough milk

    When you pump do you massage your breasts? That helps remove more milk.

    You can try pumping more often and for at least 20min.

    You can also try cluster pumping. You pump every 20-30 min for...

    Pain

    Do most of the bf moms have any nipple/areola sensitivity or does it go away? I have been pumping and breastfeeding for 1 month and both areas are sore and super sensitive to temperature. I don't...

    nipples

    So your nipple shouldn't be mishapen after bf? Mine looks smooshed, but it doesn't really hurt too much. Also, my nipples are bigger, so not sure how she can get around my areola.

    Another thing is...

    Re: Electric pump

    A Medela pump in Style is awesome, but it's $250. The cost is worth it if you have to pump often. If money is an issue you might qualify for assistance. Contact your WIC office. You can also rent...

    Re: Finally able to bf

    I guess I'm too weak to give up bottle feeding. I can't stand her crying and bf is becoming such a negative experience for me. I hope with time she might get better at it and actually suck when I try...

    Re: feeding to long

    My baby does the same thing... falls asleep and seems hungry after bf. Sucking for 2 hours is very long. I couldn't handle that. That's why I always give her a bottle after a feeding. It's a vicious...

    question

    My baby does bf finally, but she always sleeps and never is satisfied after a feeding (even up to 40min). It takes 10min or so to get her to latch. I put her back at the breast and she falls asleep...

    Yeah, I got my baby to finally bf. She's 2.5 weeks. See my previous post on pumping. Basically, I wasn't able to get her to bf and was expressing my milk and bottle feeding her. She screams a lot,...

    Re: Problems breastfeeding

    Thanks for the advice. I am very disappointed she won't take my breast or latch on. I keep trying, but I'm not sure how long to try at each feeding. She gets to mad. I don't want her to develop an...

    Pumping

    How many ounces were you able to pump at 1 week? I can pump between 2.5-3.5 for both breasts. Does that seem low? Does it increase over time? I pump every 2-3 hours.

    Problems breastfeeding

    My newborn (6 days old) doesn't suck my breast much when she latches on (rarely latches on). She might suck 1-2 times and then just sits there, sleeps or cries. I was able to get her to latch on and...
