    Re: I HATE pumping!

    Can you share some of the things you would do differently? I'm curious to know. I am a first time mom and ended up EPing bc LO was born early and spent time in the NICU. If we're lucky enough to have...

    Re: Baby constipated

    No solids yet (I know I'm in the wrong forum, but the question seemed relevant). Breast milk from a bottle only. It's been about a week, and I'm just concerned...

    Re: Baby constipated

    What if LO is constipated and just getting breast milk (from a bottle)? Should I cut out bananas, apple juice, etc.?

    Re: Tubing (not in the snow)

    It seems that I've been able to get at least the same amount in less time. I can see the milk pouring out instead of dripping. I'm able to turn the suction up too - it feels more gentle than with the...

    Tubing (not in the snow)

    I just purchased a PISA and noticed that I'm getting a lot more condensation in the tubing than from the Lactina Select I was using. Has anyone noticed that? I'm wondering if I'm doing something...

    Re: Left side is going to pop!

    This happened to me awhile back. I tried two things... First, I pumped both for the desired amount of time, then pumped the full one for a few extra minutes.

    Second, I know you said you replaced...

    We bought the Gerber GentleFlow bottles and LOVE them so far. No leaks and they fit the Avent rings/nipples/caps perfectly. BPA-free. We also got the slow flow Avent nipples (one step up from the...

    Re: Donating?

    I donate to the Mother's Milk Bank of Ohio. We don't live very close (we live in PA), but it's the closest to us. It's a long process to donate - it takes about a month. Once you let them know you're...

    Re: So.. ive decided..

    Excellent point. I never thought about it like that. So much to learn from all you mamas! :)



    We're not on anything other than breastmilk and LO is large! At 3 months he was about 15.5 lbs. I'm...

    Re: Solids = cereal?

    He may be old-school, but maybe not... Relatives of ours were doing the formula + cereal thing in the bottle at 3 months and our ped said NO WAY. Those people were old school.

    Re: Solids = cereal?

    Thank you for the input! I appreciate it :). I will see how things go when the time comes around.

    Speaking of gassy machine though... LO has been extremely gassy lately. He's only been pooping...

    Re: Solids = cereal?

    Thanks for the links. Very informative! I was all for just giving breast milk until 6 months after I read them. Then we went away for the weekend and family members said that LO should be sleeping...
  14. Re: EPing and going back to work (plus other stuff)

    I haven't tried the Medela PISA, but after reading about it, maybe this is the best purchase for me. I don't have a problem with let-down; I used the Symphony in the hospital and found it to be a bit...
  15. EPing and going back to work (plus other stuff)

    Well it's time. I start work again part-time the week after next. It's time to make a few decisions, so I'm here to ask for some opinions/suggestions/advice.

    LO is 14 weeks old. I've been EPing...

    Solids = cereal?

    Hi! The pediatrician said we could start cereal at 4 months. Is this considered a solid or not? He also said baby food at 6 months - bananas, etc. Is this what most people do?

    How do you know how...

    Re: Pumping too much milk

    I would pump until you feel empty and freeze the extra. I agree with the others - you never know when you may need it!

    I do the same - LO takes milk at room temperature. If he doesn't take it all, I will keep it at room temp if I think he's going to take the rest within an hour or so, otherwise I will put it back in...

    I think a lot of the calculators out there are to help moms who primarily nurse figure out how much to put in a bottle for their LOs when they are away (work, etc.).

    Hi!

    As far as I see it, you've done many things right:

    1. You asked for encouragement! You're doing awesome! :hug
    2. You are pumping and giving LO the best nutrition. :clap
    3. You said this...

    One thing that I did (mistakenly) early on was use a very hot washcloth on my breasts while pumping. I read later that this actually causes engorgement rather than...

    More milk?

    I pump exclusively for LO. He's 10 weeks old now and seems to be wanting more milk per day than before (28-32oz/day vs. 24-27oz/day in weeks previous).

    I'm confused because I've heard two...
