    Re: Pumping issues

    I'd replace valves and white membranes, too. And make sure your tubes and pump membranes (the round yellow bits) are properly seated every time.

    Re: Condensation or milk?

    There is condensation with each use.. When you get milk backing up (usually caused by the membranes sticking), it's loud and slurpy and very obviously milk.

    That said, milk particles do get into...
  3. Re: When did you start giving your baby combos of food?

    We do baby led solids and never limit introduction to just one food at a time. I have multiple food allergies and we have other allergies/sensitivities in our family, so we already know what's in...

    Re: Green onions for teething???

    I've not heard of it for the discomfort, but my kids have both *loved* nomming on green onions. When I'm working in the yard, I pluck greens from our walking onions and hand them to girlie.
  5. Re: Building stash and manual pump use question

    Buy an extra set of flanges/valves. Keep one in your bag or at work. You can toss the extra set in the sink after that last pump and zip up your bag and set it by the front door. Wash them with...

    Re: Pumping Pals/milk storage

    I use Lansinoh bags for freezing. They are not reusable. If you're not freezing huge quantities, you could freeze in bottles.

    I use the Super Shields from Pumpin' Pal. They're much more...

    Re: pump parts storage Queston

    You can stash the parts in the fridge, rinsed or unrinsed. Just shake any water out--it's not a big deal.

    Is there a reason you think you need to supplement feeds?

    Re: Exclusively Pumping For 1yr old

    My daughter is 13mo, but she came early, so I'm pumping full-time until her original EDD rolls around. I currently produce more than she drinks in a day, so the freezer gets fed daily. After June,...

    Re: Brewers Yeast VS Nutritional Yeast

    In the US, there's not a labeling regulation for yeast supplements. You can find nutritional yeast labeled brewer's yeast and you can find spent brewer's yeast which is a byproduct of...
  10. Re: Just started period postpartum, will my milk supply decr

    You might find you have more sensitive nipples, that nursing stimulates uterine cramping, or that you have a slight supply dip with your cycle. I currently EP and have a supply dip from ovulation...
  11. Re: Low Supply Due to Stoppage for Dairy Allergy

    Nurse, nurse, nurse.

    And if her diet was super dairy-heavy before, make sure she's getting enough calories now. It's hard for me to get enough calories without dairy. Almonds, hummus, and lots of...
  12. Re: Tube fed baby trying to breastfeed need help

    I'd see an IBCLC and also ask if the IBCLC can recommend a breastfeeding-friendly SLP, if you don't already have one.

    Are you in the US and if so, have you contacted Early Intervention yet?

    Re: pressured to pump

    I just let people know that overnights and "feeding for kicks" weren't options with my first. I don't love any adult enough to pump just so they can "share" the experience of baby feeding. I pumped...

    Re: Temporary Weaning

    Definitely call InfantRisk. Your surgeon is probably not a lactational pharmacologist. You trust your surgeon to do your surgery, you trust a lactation expert with your nursling. Y'know?

  16. Re: How do I know if baby is ready to be off BM?

    I'd do a slow pump wean and push the solids. And yeah, 28-30oz is a LOT of breastmilk!

    I'm EPing for my second. She turned one earlier this month, but she won't be 12m adjusted until June. I'm...

    Re: Milk dried up suddenly

    Yeah, with a sudden drop in supply, I'd be looking at the pump. I just had a PISA replaced under warranty--it lost suction. First things first, though, change those white membranes!

    Re: 9 Week Old and Reflux

    I bet a good talk with your hematologist could shine some light on the issue. Anemia (which thalassemia can cause) can cause a reduction in breastmilk supply. Heavy bleeding can exacerbate iron...

    Re: 9 Week Old and Reflux

    Have you given up soy in your diet? If she's that sensitive, you might need to be soy-free yourself. I have a soy-allergy and react (via contact) to Elecare. It's the formula in the US with the...
  21. Re: Is Sleep Training possible (or necessary) with EBF baby?

    Eight months is a pretty hard time for sleep. Developmentally, they're making massive leaps. Cognitive abilities, motor skills, physical growth . . . they're busy little creatures.

    Re: Drastic drop in supply.... Help.

    Are you by chance taking decongestants for your sinus infection? Pseudoephedrine can cause a milk supply drop in many women.

    Re: Flat Nipples :(

    Time. I didn't use a shield with my son, but had very flat nipples. With time, they drew out. I just had to be really conscious of his latch and work on it if it wasn't quite right.

    You might want to pop off the faceplate and assess the mold situation. While it can be wiped off of that diaphragm, it might be kinda gross after sitting in storage. It may not last through another...

    Re: Wean 10 month old with cold sore?

    Yes, if you've ever had a cold sore, you're unlikely to develop sores on your nipples from this exposure. There is *not* a lot of research on this--it came up when my son had his primary breakout. ...
