    Re: Pump Weaning

    Did you continue to BF in the evening and is it possible to keep BF on the weekends after being weaned from the pump?

    Pump Weaning

  4. Re: Alternatives to using BM for cereal

    Thank you. This is starting to make me feel better. Those of you using water, what kind of water do you use. We drink bottled spring water. Is that ok for baby?

    Re: Cereal was a hit!

    Thanks for chiming in. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this experience. I read somewhere else that if it gets to runny to just add a little more BM. Cereal gets digested by BM, who knew. I...

    Cereal was a hit!

  10. Re: When do you change nipples...or do you?

    Thanks ladies! This makes it easy. Is the transition from slow flow nipple to sippy easy?
  11. When do you change nipples...or do you?

    My LO is 4.5 months now and I was wondering when I should change the nipple on the bottle from slow flow to medium flow. Do I even need to? The slow flow suggests 0-3 months. Any advice?

    Re: Sucking for sleep

    My DS did the same thing as an infant. I felt like he was glued to my breast. At around 4 mo. he discovered his thumb and it was a God sent. Don't let people tell you babies shouldn't suck their...

    Re: help with bottles!!

    I had to try several different nipples before I found the one my LO was comfortable with. Some nipples eventhough they were slow flow were too fast for her. I finally tried the Evenflo Comfi...

    Re: Supply starting to dwindle

    Thanks for responding! I'm not having trouble letting down. In fact, I tend to let down at the sight of the pump as if it were my baby. I'm just starting to pump less. When I first started...
  17. Re: very low milk supply, please help!

    I wasn't able to pump with my DS, but wanted to continue BF. He was getting Formula during the day when I was away and nursing the rest of the time. I didn't have any supply problems with that. My...

  25. Re: How do I start a stash for when I return to work?

    I'm not EPing, but when I was getting ready to return to work I was adding extra pumping sessions to increase supply. I also pumped early in the morning (5am), that was when I got the most.
