  1. Re: Does anyone just pump and bottle feed breastmilk?

    Try as much as you are able - I managed 11 months pumping until the point that my nipple tissue broke down. That was with reducing to 4 a day and still being able to keep up with demand but my...

    Re: cross cradle hold

    Do whatever works. I do think the basic holds are fine but if they don't work for you try different things. The rare occasions I ever managed to latchthe LO it certainly wasn't in any of the...

    Re: One side only

    Pumping will certainly help even things out - and give you a nice stash too for when you can't be there!! My son preferred the left (when he ever deigned to attempt to latch) - I guess it was easier...

    Re: Maybe time to give up

    As an EP'ing mom (various reasons) if you can possibly persevere with breastfeeding then PLEASE do it!!!! EP'ing eats away at your time and energy as it is way more difficult to maintain supply in...

    Am I the only one who is actually creeped out by this? Not just the In laws' behaviour but your niece's OH for allowing this to continue. They So need to be pampering the new mummy and not the other...
  7. Re: Stuffy nose and got really strange advice

    There are devices called nasal aspirators - basically a collection device you can insert one end into baby's nose and suck the mucous out without having to come into contact with the gunge :-)))

  8. Re: How can I match a growth spurt with pumping?!

    If the milk from day 1 was the same "age" as the milk from day two it doesn't matter. Freezing slows the degredation process WAAAY down so batches of milk produced within 24 hours or so should be ok...

    Re: Feeling frustrated with pumping

    I EP so can't really answer your question as to whether you are getting "enough" per session/throughout the day. I would suggest you get some freezer baggies and store any excess in the freezer as...

  14. Re: Clogged breast at work - what to do?

    While pumping (after applying heat, etc) pushing the lump with your cupped hand (thumb on the top of the breast, first finger underneath) from the chest down towards the nipple should help too.

  16. Re: Worried about leaking/milk supply when traveling

    If you can, pump until empty asap after the working day and then every 3-4 hours through the evening/night. This will at the very least help maintain your supply while away from the LO and then you...

    Re: First time using this forum

    First of all - you are doing SO well!!!! :clap EP'ing is jolly hard work and so many Mums give up a LOT sooner than you do so do feel proud of yourself.

    Secondly - I have to confess that I used...

    Thinner milk?

    Hi

    I EP and my LO is now consistently sleeping through the night so I have decided to bite the bullet and see where it took me.

    Overall supply is fine - maybe 180ml a day down from previously...

    I would have pumped when I felt I needed to pump and not when the hospital told me (which resulted in nearly losing my supply)

    Re: Funny taste- is it still good?

    my mother is the same. I once came home to find she'd chucked out about 2 pints of perfectly good breastmilk (about 2.5 days' worth) because it tasted "odd". Turns out I'd had a couple of curries...
