  1. Re: 8 month old + nursing strike + baby led weaning

    Thanks.
    He literally stuffs his face with solids. However, he spent a 4 day weekend with me and has nursed much much better again. We'll see how he does at daycare today.
  2. Re: 8 month old + nursing strike + baby led weaning

    The daycare has a menu that meets state regs. They cut his food up and place it on a high chair tray for him to feed himself. We feed him the same way at home, he eats what we are eating at the...
  3. 8 month old + nursing strike + baby led weaning

    On day 1 of Jack's life, I would have thought for sure my nursing relationship with him was going to be perfect. We had no problems, he was 2lbs bigger than my first and latched on right away. We...

    Re: Feeding too much at daycare

    Thank you.

    I found that when pumping in addition to/after nursing seems completely ineffective (no banked milk but I know it stimulates supply). The article did make me feel a little better, I...

    Re: Feeding too much at daycare

    I decided cut back a bottle, so he would be getting three 4oz bottles. I left a fourth bottle with about 1.5oz in it just in case they needed it, but they didn't use it yesterday.

    I found out...

    Feeding too much at daycare

    So I made a mistake.

    My baby goes to daycare for 9 hours a day.

    I started him on three 3oz bottles....9oz per day

    then they asked for 4....12oz per day

    then they asked for four 4oz...

    Re: Pumping on a road trip

    Just wanted to update. I am not much of a planner but the app ended up not helping the way I hoped. I bought a 12v adapter at an autoparts store and pumped on the road (in a car full of men...

    Re: Pumping on a road trip

    OH wow! I just found this app called Moms Pump Here, and it is exactly what I was looking for!
    I was obviously not using the right words in my internet search until now!

    Pumping on a road trip

    Ladies,

    I know I'm not the first mom to do this.

    I obviously didn't plan this very well, but I have an Avent double electric pump that is coming with me on a 12 hour (road trip). I am...

    Re: Flying without baby

    OK thanks! I'll probably end up pumping into bags. Yesterday this seemed like so much of a bigger deal than it will actually be! LOL

    Flying without baby

    I am preparing for a work trip without my baby.

    I have read all of the "tips" and tsa rules and I am feeling very stressed. I have plenty of milk at home for 4 month old baby to drink while I am...

    Long term plan

    Hi,

    My son is almost 4 months and I am trying so hard not to stress about supply issues. I try to pump 3 times a day, but sometimes my job does not allow.

    Yesterday I did not pump enough...

    My in-laws are taking my kids tonight. They live 2 hours away and offered to babysit for us while we go to a company party and we will pick up the kids in the morning.

    Re: My freezer is a mess

    Thanks so much! I like the idea of freezing Friday's milk and using frozen on Monday.

    I'll look at donating some too.
  16. Re: Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    I want to post an update. Every day this week Jack has drank the bottles I sent for him. Occasionally he has left an ounce or a tad more and it was thrown out. Once he only drank one ounce, but...

    My freezer is a mess

    This is my second baby.

    My first I never had much of a freezer stash and always regreted it (not sure why). I always send fresh pumped bottles from the day before to daycare and he always ate...
  18. Re: Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    Let's hope I can answer everything. His poops: they have become less overall (usually every day but sometimes every other day), odor and consistency doesn't seem to have changed.

    He sleeps in a...
  19. Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    Jack is 6 weeks. I send three 3oz bottles to daycare for him each day, and pump 3 times at work. I usually end up pumping more than he needs and freeze the excess.

    The past 4 days, daycare has...

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Thank you all so much for the advice.

    Now for my last question. My baby starts on Monday and all of the milk I have pumped is frozen. I have some really early milk, it's like yellow-orange in...
  21. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    Thanks! The fullness is getting MUCH better than it was. I don't find myself needing relief often at all, I do still leak and have very fast letdowns though!
  22. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    When I take the time to count he is nursing about 8-10 times in 24 hours. He eats much more frequently in the late afternoon and evening when he is awake most. He is eating more like every hour at...
  23. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    I am with or near him almost all the time, except during the day when he is sleeping and I am getting chores done. I am back to work (he comes with me) and his bed is right next to my chair so I can...
  24. Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    I feel like we go a loooong time (3-4 hours consistantly, more at night) between feedings and then when he eats it's for like 5 minutes and he's done and just looks at me or plays with my nipple in...

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it!

    This is my first time doing bottles with this type of caregiver (a daycare center vs home daycare). I will do that and see how it goes.
