    Re: How long can I pump on PISA batteries?

    I pump 4-5 times a day and get several days out of the batteries.

    So, say 5 times a day X 3 days X 15 minutes = roughly 225 minutes - over 3 hours of pumping time.

    I bought ten rechargeable...

    Re: Vitamins drops

    Our pediatrician advised us to give trivisol which has vitamins A, C, and D. I do give him the drops when I remember, but I forget frequently. He takes them very willingly. It was very funny the...

    Re: choking on bottle

    When I have given my LO a pacifier, he often makes a gagging or choking sound unless I put it on his lip and let him pull it in. Maybe your husband could try putting the nipple om your LO's lip and...

    Re: same bottle?

    Pumping directly into chilled milk is not recommended.

    Say you have an ounce in the fridge that you pumped yesterday. The lipase and any bacteria have been working on that milk for a day...

    Re: endless nipple pain?

    I went through large amounts of nipple pain too for about 7 weeks before I decided to get help. I worked hard on the latch and met with an LC. She recommended getting my LO's nose right up agains...
  13. Re: Begging for Advice or Just Someone to Relate

    With my LO, if he latches on and then pops off to cry, it usually means something else is bothering him. Often, it's needing to burp. Once I get a few burps out of him, he usually is still crying,...

    Re: Has this happened to anyone else????

    I have not had that problem, but I would say that pumping once a day probably is not enough to keep up your supply. If he was normally feeding on one side at each feeding, then he probably ate from...
