  1. Re: Is there a reason why I shouldn't eat peanut butter?

    I eat it all the time. :shrug I am a vegetarian and its a good source of protein. There aren't any food allergies in my family, though.

    Re: thinking of moving to exclusively pumping

    I am glad things are working for you. Are you putting baby to breast at all? It may be nice to keep them familiar with the breast so they can nurse when they can stay awake easier. I am EPing 2.5...

    Re: Pump Parts in Fridge?

    I do that.
  4. Re: Do you think I can get her back to the breast?

    Spoon feed the bm with cereal or offer it in a cup. If they want to suck, they get the breast. It will be very difficult to feed like that, but its one way to get them to bf from the tap. Its a...

    Re: How much is she getting bf?

    I sometimes weigh my ds before and after a feeding. He takes between 3-6 oz at a time. Normally about 4. He feeds 8 times a day, plus comfort sucking to sleep, where he gets one letdown. He has...
  6. Re: Could oversupply be (at least one of) our problem(s)?

    You can pump 1/2 the time and set that milk aside to freeze for mixing with solids when baby is older. Then finish pumping. The milk you produce the second half of your pump session will have the...

    Re: thinking of moving to exclusively pumping

    I EP for my dd (30 months old) and it is/was a ton more work than bfing ds. DS is now 4.5 months old and is insanely distractable while nursing. I don't think that is necessarily a nursing strike. ...

    Re: How much breastmilk?

    I EP for dd. At that age she took about 35 oz a day. She remained in the 25th percentile, so she was not overfed. I am now bfing ds who is 4.5 months old. Sometimes I weigh him before and after...

  14. Re: New and need help please - ready to give up

    I know it sounds like even more work, but you can try using an sns instead of a bottle. They will get the milk/formula easier than from just the breast, but it will keep them from preferring the...

    Re: feeding from a bottle..

    Try a dark room, holding him in the normal bfing position with the bottle under the caregivers armpit. Sounds crazy but it may work. Have you tried breastflow bottles or adiri nursers? Avent? ...

    Re: Began work 2 weeks ago- hates fake nipple

    Breast bottle or adiri bottles are worth a try. Have you tried avent bottles? No need to quit bfing over this. You will find a solution. :gvibes

    Re: Hospital wants to give formula

    I do agree the baby needs formula. (assuming she tried to pump and couldn't get anything) Get her an SNS to put it in, or ask the nurses for an infant NG tube. You can rig up a make-shift SNS with...

    Re: what does this mean??

    It sounds like she is wanting a let-down faster than what is occurring. Eat some oatmeal for a few days in a row to increase your supply a little. That may help out. If its a growth spurt it...
