  1. Re: We made it! and new issues crop up...

    Thanks for the responses :) as for my trip, it's a bachelorette party on the other coast, so it's not appropriate to bring DS along. he went with me to both of my work trips last year, but i'm...

  3. Re: Pumping, Daycare and Back to Work 9/2

    you'll probably be ok with just 2 pumping sessions at work, i only pump twice and i'm gone from 8am to 5:30. just maximize your output from those sessions as best as you can - make sure your hydrated...

    Re: overactive letdown and pumping

    i also have OALD and only feed my baby on one side at home. however, i always pump on both sides at work. pumps aren't as efficient as babies, so in my mind it's easier to let down for the pump if...

    Re: my bottles stink....

    oh what a great idea! boiling has gotten really tedious, it did work to resolve the stink issues, but it's no fun! i have an amazon gift card just waiting to be used, and i'm glad i saved it!

    medela quick clean wipes?

    anyone else use these? i'm a little leery of exactly how clean my pump parts are getting - there's this little space where the milk drips down that i just can't reach with the wipes.

    i keep a set...
  7. Thrush? Mastitis? Something else?

    DS is 4.5 months old now, and for at least the past month or so I've been having HORRIBLE pain in my right breast. The nipple hurts like hell when he first latches on (which I had attributed to poor...

    Re: Letdown

    I get a tingling followed by leaking (still!). It doesn't happen every time, or at least I don't feel it every time, and it often happens when I'm NOT nursing (wonderful random let-down).

    Re: Yikes! Need Advice ASAP!

    Yeah, I didn't think microwaving it would be ideal, but my poor Monday-brain couldn't come up with a better solution. Thankfully I looked before I leaped and asked on here!! I managed to pump 6 oz on...

    Re: Yikes! Need Advice ASAP!

    great idea!! I think there's a CVS somewhere around here, and I'm sure they'd have bags. They probably even have bottles! why didn't I think of that earlier? :doh I should have plenty of time to run...

    Whew! Crisis averted

    I forgot to bring my bottle storage set (4 bottles + ice pack) to work this morning - what a way to start the week! Thankfully, I had one 8 oz bottle in my desk, so I'm pumping on just one...
  12. Re: Right Breast produces more...is this normal?

    if you're trying to get one side to produce less, pumping out the milk will actually do the opposite. if you absolutely HAVE to pump, take out just enough to feel more comfortable, and try to make...

    Re: Pump one side or two?

    i only feed on one side due to OS, but i always pump on both sides at work. seems to work better that way! on weekends, i'll pump on one side while he feeds on the other once or twice in the morning,...
  14. Re: length of sessions, spraying boobs, etc

    I really wouldn't recommend following Babywise, it can wreak havoc with your supply and cause all sorts of issues. Here's a recent thread on it.

    It does sound like you have OALD, I wouldn't worry...

    Re: Pump more than baby eats

    My DS only takes about 9-10 oz (on Friday only 7!) while I'm at work, and I'm gone from 8-5:30 every day. I actually enjoy our time together in the evenings, event though it seems like I'm nursing...

    Re: Traveling w/o LO. What to do?

    if you're willing to donate, check out Milkshare. A lot of people on there do one-time donations when they're traveling away from the baby in order to keep from wasting the milk. There are a lot of...

    My 3mo does this too, don't worry it's not because you don't have enough milk! I've attributed it to a few different things:

    Re: big lump....

    oh.. also - output has been really low from that side. 2.5 oz all day compared to 7 from the left. I normally get less from that side, but not THAT much less.
