    thanks for all the replies. The dc situation is a huge part of why I'm staying home. If I could find someone else for the last two weeks, I would, but I can't and I'm a teacher so I'm under contract...

    Re: pump questions

    I used WIC with my older son, but I make too much money to qualify now (by about a whole whopping $50 a week!). It was a wonderful pump. I called the lac consulant there, I really liked her, and she...

    Re: pump questions

    I checked into renting a pump before the baby was born. It was almost $80 a month in my area. Not affordable. The Evenflo for one thing, has a short in the cord and unless I hold it just so, it...

    pump questions

    I am a fulltime working mom and up to now I'd been using an evenflo double electric. I very rarely use it as a double though, only when I'm really pressed for time, because it doesn't have as much...

    Re: Need Encouragement

    Thanks everyone. I'm at work, still hanging in there. In fact, I've discovered that pumping only one side at a time frees up my hands and I can do paperwork while I pump. I had a heart to heart with...

    Need Encouragement

    I had no clue what to title this. I'm really getting frustrated with bfing. Gracie is three months old, I've been back to work since she was 6 weeks old and am just feeling ready to give up. It seems...

    Re: post-partum depression?

    I get this too. It's the most overwhelming feeling of absolute panic. I sweat and my heart pounds. It's started to get better. I read when I feed the baby too and that helps, but I feel terrible...

    Re: Getting tired

    I am a counselor by profession and wondered about the depression. It's next to impossible to see it in myself, until I reread my posts. I think I'll give it another couple of days - just through the...

    Re: work clothes--what do you wear?

    I tend to wear turtlenecks or light sweater sets so I have something that can go on over the shirt. That way I can conceal a leak. I also think the stretchy ribbed turtlenecks are easier to lift and...
