  12. Re: Transition from bottle to breast after NICU - how long?

    One of my twins was IUGR and honestly, she just never took to the breast. She would nurse in the NICU once a day and then at home but when I saw an IBCLC she said she wasn't transferring milk and she...

    Re: How to drop a pump

    Thanks! No, they've been taking less at that bottle for about a month and it's a struggle to get them to eat half of it most of the time so the pediatrician said we could drop it and fill it instead...

    Don't fret too much. My girls (twins) both considered rolling from back to tummy for a while and then got bored trying. Now they are almost ready to crawl and still don't do a lot of rolling from one...

    Also if you are considering pumps and asking your insurance company (if you're in the U.S.) find out their policy on rentals. Some companies cover rentals and sales (mine did) and a portion of my...

    I don't think my breasts have changed size - how would I even know? Is it worth going to a store that sells the flanges and seeing if they can help? I can go to one on Saturday morning....
