    Re: Weaning from the pump

    Thanks for the advice and the links! It seems like it shouldn't take that long to get off the pump, maybe a few weeks at most, so I will wait a few more months before I start decreasing my pumping.

    Re: Oatmeal instead of rice cereal?

    DS started on oatmeal (as his 1st food) instead of rice because I thought that the oatmeal tastes better. He seemed to love it from the beginning (5.5 mo) and still eats some almost every day (he's...

    Re: Salicylic acid and breastfeeding

    I was told that a facewash is generally ok, because you're washing it off right away. My face wash has 2% salicylic acid and I don't worry about it. I avoid creams with it because that sinks in...

    Re: Medela Pump in Style?

    I love my PISA. I also have the backpack. I have been using it about 2-3x/day. I plug it in the wall, but it also came with a battery pack that I've never used.

    Dilating Eye Drops?

    Do I need to pump & dump after having my eyes dilated? I don't want DS feeling any effects if it can get into the milk. I looked on Kellymom and didn't see the drug (tropicamide) listed.

    Thanks...
