    Re: Pumped Milk

    i don't see anything wrong with that, as long as he's willing to drink it. he might think it's too "babyish" for him to have.

  5. Re: going on vacation, do I need to bring pump...

    your milk won't dry up in 5 days. but you will definitely get engorged and be in pain if you don't pump or hand express. if you are more comfortable hand expressing, then i wouldn't worry about...

    Re: Honeymoon and pumping
