    Re: I just can't pump!

    Hot packs, massage, and RELAXING helped me. I had my dh take the baby upstairs and I would read or watch tv. And try NOT to watch the bottles fill up (or not fill up). Also, I have a Medela...

    Hi! My daughter was born on a Sunday and my milk didn't come in till Friday morning!!! I had a flat nipple side, and I did the same thing your wife was doing with the pumping. I barely got ANYTHING...
  4. Re: In despreate need of a recommendation...

    I have a Medela pump in style advanced. The "let down" phase helped me get more milk. And the bag is discreet. I havent' had trouble with milk in the tubing - just normal condensation, which is...

    I usually pump for about 5 more minutes after the streams or the big drips into the bottle stop. Sometimes they'll start back up again. And make sure they've really stopped...they're difficult to...

    Re: Do you ever feel this way? (vent)

    My dd is 5.5 months old and i started back to work 2 months ago. I feel like I am half the employee I was before having a child. That's terrible to say, because women have fought so hard for equality...

    I sort of do this. I'm sick of pumping at work too, and I'm starting a new job where I wn't have an office w/ a door (just a cubicle). So I'm all about stopping the pumping and just nursing at home....

    Re: worried/confused father

    I agree that co-sleeping helps with the sleep deprivation. We didn't exactly co-sleep b/c my husband was terrified he'd roll on our daughter, but she slept in the bouncy seat RIGHT beside the bed. I...

    I have a Medela PISA with the "limited edition" bag. It looks like a normal briefcase bag and I can hold my pumping stuff plus the occasional work file.

  17. Re: Working moms supplementing with formula

    I used to supplement just a few ounces. Then one week I couldn't pump every 2-2.5 hrs like normal and my supply went downhill quick. But it's not the end of the world, she's fat and happy, and I'm...

    Re: Lost supply?? HELP!

    It took me 5 days to increase my supply when my dd was going through a growth spurt...I think you should give yourself 2-3 more days at least.

    Re: Enough breastmilk for my baby?

    It was SoooooooOOO hard the first few weeks for me. If it makes you feel better, at the point where you are, I could only get like 1/2 oz pumping - probably b/c of anxiety, lack of sleep, baby ate it...

    Re: Best bags?

    Lansinoh ones are the best. I've used Lansinoh, Gerber and Medela. I never worry about the Lansinoh bags puncturing or unsealing. And they're all priced about the same. Target has "jumbo" packs - 50...

    Re: dental work while breastfeeding?

    When I was 6 months, I had cavities filled and had a local anaesthetic while it was done. My OB said to definitely get the work done - cavities and other mouth issues can cause premature labor!
