    Re: Food Suggestions for Anemic 9mo. old

    My son also had a low iron level from about 9 months to 15 months. His pediatrician let us try the high iron food route for a month or so, but it didn't bring his levels where they needed to be. ...

    Re: When did you introduce solids?

    After reading all of these stories about waiting until six months or even much later and the horrors after starting solids at all, I feel like I need to add my experience for a little balance. We...

    If you can't get the link to work, just do a search on Google or some other search engine for "Milk Bank." That should get you where you need to go.

    Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Lane'sMommy - If you still have all of that milk and your lo won't drink it, you might want to contact one of the milk banks to see if they will take it. The milk is still safe to drink, just icky...

    Re: How long to wait after birth to pump?

    If you will be returning to work, I'm with Molly. If you need to start building a freezer stash for a return to work, you'll rest easier if you start pumping sooner than later. I found that the...

    Re: Ameda?

    I have used both the hospital grade Ameda pumps and the ones you can buy commercially. Both are very good pumps. Overall, I like Ameda pumps better than Medela pumps because they are closed systems...

    Re: jar food question

    My son was a little piglet when he started on solids. I was amazed at how much he would eat in a sitting. That being said, I was always careful to nurse him right before he had any meal of solid...
  8. Re: How long did you send breastmilk to daycare?

    I pump weaned and stopped sending milk to the sitter's house at about 11 months. Ds still nursed morning and night, but had pretty much given up day nursing on the weekends, except for the...

    Poll: Re: When did your lo start solids?

    Well, I can't really formally answer the poll because there is no selection for anything before 6 months, which I found a little disappointing. I suspect that many members will elect not to...

    Re: Renting Pumps?

    If you have a LLL group in your area, you might also contact them. They can usually tell you who in your area rents pumps.

    Re: More out of the left breast?

    I was the same way. I always got a lot more from the right breast... sometimes almost double the amount. I also always felt that the left breast never fully emptied when I pumped and I would...

    Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I wish I had known about this method when I was still pumping.

    One last question. So, do you heat it to 160 or 180 degrees? I saw both numbers above.

    Re: What no one ever told you????

    No one ever told me that it could actually be pretty easy to breastfeed. I was totally in for the challenge of a lifetime, but ds and I had absolutely no problems. Don't get me wrong, it still took...

    Poll: Re: Which pump do you use?

    I used an OLD Ameda hospital pump that I called "Elsie." When I say old... I think it had to be about 20 years old. But, it worked like a champ. It weighed about 30 pounds, so it wasn't exactly...

    Re: YoBaby

    I was also shocked to see how much sugar is in yobaby yogurt. But, the other commercial brands of "kids" yogurt are even worse. They are loaded with not only sugar, but corn syrup and have tons of...

    Re: blood in milk

    The only other thing I would add to the above responses is to be aware of the symptoms of mastitis. If you have any kind of bleeding, the development of mastitis (a breast infection) is always a...

    I think the best way to describe the way I felt as a feeling of ambivalence. Although I was sad that our breastfeeding relationship was coming to an end, I was glad to finally get my body back. And...
