    Re: breast pump blues

    :ita Check on WIC

    If that doesn't pan out, here's a few more things:
    Check your local LLL group. Maybe there is a mom there that has a pump she doesn't need anymore? Also - maybe the group has a...
  11. Re: New to pumping causing discomfort

    Olive oil - you can lube up the shield/horn with it. Just around the opening where it would rub against your nipple/areola.
    Just a drop - a little bit goes a long way. It's helped me a lot!
  12. Re: How much should I pump at each session?

    There are some great links out there as far as guidelines.. Hopefully someone will have then on hand and can post them here.

    Something to remember: Frequency of pumping is better than duration....

    Re: hold the pump?

    Yeah - doing the shirt/bra thing, or even doing the ponytailer-thing is awesome!
    If you're doing the ponytailer thing, remember that to help keep it in place, to bring your bra up over the bottom of...
  14. Re: I can't pump! Please help right away

    I'm not sure of your situation, but first thing I would do is try to relax and not think about it for a few moments (impossible, I know...).
    The more stressed you are, the harder it can be to get a...

    Re: BreastMilk Storage

    My DH boils water in the teapot, then pours that into a bowl. Then he puts the bag of BM into it and "steeps" it (so that it's not constantly in boiling water). I guess that warms it up pretty...

    I can't imagine how hard it is to face this decision!
    I'm a WOH mom and my DH is a SAHD. It's hard - I would LOVE to be at home, and I think he got more than he bargained for being a...

    Re: Left side is going to pop!

    I would get plugged ducts all the time (on my "slow flow" side) if I went too long w/o pumping.
    So, what I do during EVERY pumping session is compression.

    I pump for about 15 minutes total. For...

    3 pumping sessions, 15 minutes each.
    Average output: 11oz

    While I'm at work, DD drinks about 8oz.
    DD gets solids at least once a...

    Re: Cheap Hands-Free Pumping!!!

    Ha! I tried doing that method, but never stuck with it because it was still a pain-in-the-butt. I wish I would have thought about doing 3 rubber bands!!! :doh

  25. Re: BLS - questions about frequency and consistency

    A little off-topic, but what about meat? And what about spices? Normally we spice or sauce up our chicken. Is that okay to give to her? We gave her plain chicken before and it was fine.
