    Re: How much does baby need??

    It also depends on how many times a day your baby eats. If your baby eats every 2 hours, they will take less. But if your baby only eats a few times, they will eat more. My son is now 4 mo and he...

    Re: How often to pump

    It depends on how much she eats when she breastfeeds. At first you should try to pump every time she eats. You should be able to pump more than she eats so you can build up a supply. Once you get in...

    Re: Avent vs Dr. Brown's vs playtex nurser

    I've wondered that myself, I haven't noticed that my nipples flow faster when pumping, so I wonder why the bottles do. Maybe because it is just too easy to get milk out for newborns that the bottle...

    Re: going back to school - pumping

    I noticed a difference in the milk that I froze from when my son was a month old to what it is now. I went ahead and cycled it out and used up all the frozen stuff and froze the new stuff. In a...

    Re: Too much formilk

    Re: When should I start pumping?

    I recommend you start pumping right away to have a freezer stash and to increase your supply as much as possible. I read somewhere that in the beginning is when your body gets the clue how much milk...

    Re: Avent vs Dr. Brown's vs playtex nurser

    I used both Dr. Brown's and Avent bottles for EBM. We started with the Dr Browns and then switched to the Avent. My son has no difference what so ever with these two bottles.

    What I realized.......

    Re: how much EBM per feeding?

    My DS is fed whenever he's hungry EBM only. Some days vary, but for the most part, he has fallen into a schedule. This took almost 4 months, but if I think he is fussy and try to give him a bottle at...

    I've just realized that some people (especially ones who've never breastfed or pumped a baby!) are inconsiderate and rude! I can lock my office door from the inside and if I leave my key in the door,...

    Re: Increasing Supply / normal?

    My DS's BMs vary as well. His Doctor said breastmilk doesn't have too much stuff in it that creates a lot of waste, so as long as there are plenty of wet diapers you shouldn't have to worry.

    Re: pumping

    First, I'm pretty sure the soft breastshieds do not come in a bigger size, just standard. However, I've tried all of them! The soft ones are no different in my opinion, they do not make it any more...

    Re: Question about Breastshield Sizes

    Thank you for the suggestion. It seemed to help! Let's hope the olive oil is the solution I was needing.
