    Re: Pumping and flange/horn size

    I agree- I have to tell myself each time I have to rush back to my office to pump "this is sooo good for my baby" but I find the process miserable.

    Re: Pumping and flange/horn size

    I've had the exact same problem- pumping with the larger size is like watching the ever-stretching aureola as it's sucked into the tunnel of the horn. Each size makes me sore, just in a different...

    Madela Wipes

    I just picked up some Madela wipes. The package says I can use them to wipe down the pump pieces when I don't have access to soap and water- but does this get them ready for the next pumping session...

    Freezer Burn?

    I'm trying to get a jump-start on building a supply before returning to work in about 6 weeks. I store in Avent semi-disposable containers. I'm concerned that because there is some air between the...

    Re: Increasing Supply / normal?

    I also have the Avent Isis and am thinking of purchasing the Medela- I'd love to hear you impressions of both, comparisons, likes, dislikes, etc. How do you compare the fit of each pump?

    Thanks...

    Re: When to pump?

    Re: To increase supply...

    To increase supply...

    My daughter is only three weeks old but I'm trying to start to get a store of milk for returning to work. So far, I've only tried to pump when my breasts felt full.
