  1. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    My pediatrician always told us the important number is the hours of combined total sleep, not the hours of straight sleep at night. And yes, at that age babies are physically capable of sleeping...

    Re: Return to work pump ?

    Both of my kids only ate on side per session as well. I have a tendency for oversupply, too.

    At work I pump both sides twice, getting a few extra ounces most days, too. I don't know about you,...
  3. Re: Newborn not staying awake to nurse

    I had this problem with my first born and was advised by an LC to nurse AT LEAST every 2 hours, even at night, and top him off with an ounce of expressed milk. We continued to use all of the stay...
  4. Re: Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    My pediatrician always told me that the overall hours of sleep is more important that the hours of sleep per night. Babies and toddlers have different sleep cycles than adults and can get away with...
  5. Re: 5 ½ mo sleeping through the night, worried about milk su

    I second the dream feed idea. I have done it with both of my kids for different reasons. My first woke up a lot at night, so the dream feed helped me get a longer stretch of sleep without him...
  6. Re: Introducing bottle to EBF 3 month old

    I went back to work when my daughter was 3 month old and we tried to get her to take a bottle every day for 2 weeks leading up to it, but she wouldn't. We tried 5 different nipples and none of them...
  7. Re: Advice on Starting to Exercise?

    I think there was one study once that claimed babies reject post-exercise milk, and numerous other studies that show babies don't care. Go, exercise, be happy, just wear a good bra. There have been...

    Re: Hygeia vs. Medela PISA pump

    I have both and I like both for different reasons. I have had my PISA since my first born and got my Hygeia through insurance for my second child. For me, I find the medela empties faster and I...
  9. Re: New to pumping with challenges!

    Did the plugged ducts pop up this week, from pumping? Check to see that your shields fit properly. From my experience, a shield that is too small may not empty well and lead to plugged ducts. ...

    Re: Jaundice

    Maybe you should ask your doctor what level he wants to see in order for her to be considered low risk. I feel like 12 was the magic number for us, but I can't remember for sure. He should be going...

    Re: Jaundice

    Her numbers are okay but she still has a little tint of yellow? What do her feet and legs look like? Are they pink? The color clears from the bottom up, so her little face is going to be the last...
  12. Re: Breastfeeding on just one breast at a time per feeding

    My son never took 2 breast per feeding and so far my daughter is doing the same thing. When I tried for force DS to take both sides per feeding session (because that is what I thought I was supposed...

    Re: Solids at 4 Months???

    I don't know why this subject really gets under my skin. It has been the AAP recommendation for quite a few years now that babies drink only breastmilk or formula for the first 6 months, and yet so...

    Re: Breast feeding painful

    With my second baby I had some pretty bad nipple trauma, like you are describing. This wasn't my first experience with BFing, so I knew she had a somewhat shallow latch and we were working on it,...

    Re: Crying over spilled milk

    I was trying to build a freezer stash so I could go on a weekend trip to a friend's wedding when I spilled half a bag on my kitchen counter. You bet I cried.
  16. Re: 4 ounce min requirement at daycare

    mommal is right, the rule for at least 4oz if formula specific. Breast milk can be given in smaller bottles. Print it out and show them if they are being insistent.

    As a side note, I HATE the...

    Re: Need advice

    A "pump slump" when baby is around 8-9 months old is very normal for pumping moms. You may have to fit in another pumping session or lengthen what you are already doing. I was over-producing up...

    Re: Emergency Formula

    If you send pre-measured bottles there is little to no risk of a spill, so I see no need for emergency back up. Two daycares we have been to have never insisted on having back up on hand. One...

    Re: Pump life

    I am kind of in the same situation, where I have my old PISA that I used regularly for about 10 months and I wasn't sure how it would last for baby #2. My insurance covered a new pump so I went for...
  21. Re: Going back to work PLUS Sleep training

    Why is your husband pushing sleep training? Waking once a night is less than most babies, and you are the one getting out of bed to nurse. I also agree that 6 months is the absolute earliest I...

    Re: My son nurses 6-10 times at night

    Does he need to nurse, or just need to touch you. Sometimes with DS if he was waking up frequently I could reach out my hand and rub his stomach for a few seconds and he would fall right back to...

    Re: Not Able to Pump Enough Milk

    Do your flanges fit properly? The mediums size that came with my Medela was good for one breast but too small for the other.
