  1. Re: Daycare asking to supplement baby with formula!

    I also send my almost 9 month old with 8oz of milk and he takes some solids and he seems satisfied. Instead of sending another bottle, could you try sending the same quantity of milk but in 3 bottles?

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    He is just 8 months old. He only ever nurses on one side and I don't feel like he is unsatisfied with the left breast. I just think it is not responding well to the pump, so I am worried that milk is...

    Re: Uneven response to pump

    I work 9-4 and I pump twice a day for about 30 minutes each time usually around 11am and 1:30pm, but it can vary a lot. I aim to get 8oz total to send 2x4oz bottles, some days I sneak in a 3rd...

    Uneven response to pump

    My ability to pump at work plummeted recently. After trouble shooting the pump (new membranes, valves, flanges) I found that a smaller flange size worked better, but only for 1 breast, the larger of...

    Re: Too much solids at daycare

    I'm getting more confused by what is happening as the days pass :cry
    I have troubleshooted my pump, replaced valves and membranes. I get a letdown but after the initial flow of milk it tapers off...

    Re: Too much solids at daycare

    DS is nursing with the same frequency, except right after daycare. Previously, he would be extremely eager and excited to nurse right after I collect him. Now he will nurse for a couple of minutes if...

    Too much solids at daycare

    DS is almost 8 months old. I work 7hrs a day and pump milk for him to send to daycare. I nurse him before drop-off, at 8am, and again when I get home at 4:30pm. During the day he has 2x4oz bottles,...
  8. Re: 7mo eating, napping, and night waking *more* frequently?

    The baby you describe in the first paragraph sounds like the textbook example! The experience I have had with my 3 is more similar to your current situation. I would guess that your LO is getting...
  9. Re: Reverse cycling and rejection of bottles!

    It sounds to me like you have nothing to worry about. Baby is nursing lots, peeing/pooping lots. For an 8 month old it sounds like a lot of solids. How big are the jars? I don't think my kids ate...

    Re: Nursing to sleep at 8 months

    My 7 month old is also up regularly during the night eating and I get soooo tried of listening to friends talk about their great sleepers, many of whom have been left to CIO. On the bad nights, when...

    When to stop pumping

    I currently pump at work while DS is at daycare. My question is when should I stop each pumping session: until no more milk is coming out, or until I have enough milk for DS? He currently drinks...
  12. Re: Bottlefeeding (pumped) prep for daycare at 5 months

    My experience with 3 kids has been that they will take a bottle at the daycare. If it were me I would nurse now and worry about bottles in September. I started work when DS was 6 months old. I tried...

    Re: working, feeding, pumping schedule

    So the first couple of weeks have been a little chaotic. I'm not sure if DS is eating enough, maybe he is reverse cycling, although he is a frequent night waker anyway so it is impossible to tell. I...

    Re: 6 month old nursing every 2 hours

    My 6 month old DS also eats about every 2 hours around the clock too, exhausting for me but totally normal since my 2 year old did the same thing until about 14 months when he started suddenly...

    I too think the eat-play-sleep cycle is a myth, certainly something I have never experienced with my 3 children. My 5 month old nurses to sleep for naps and never naps in his crib. If I am out he...

    It had never occurred to me to use storage bags! I was planning to use bottles but the bags might work much better. Thanks! I bought a cooler bag this morning and some gel ice packs. Is there any...

    Re: 3 mo old

    I think that can be totally normal. My 5 month old only nurses on one side. He would fall asleep after that and, when he was younger, I would wake him to get him to take the 2nd side. I realised that...

    Re: is sterilising really necessary

    A good wash and an occasional sterilization sounds good. I have to scald the milk so it seems a little pointless going from sterile pump to unsterile pan to sterile bottle. And like you mention DS is...

    Sippy cup for 4 month old

    What is the best sippy cup for a four month old? Are there any particular types that are more suited to EBF babies, e.g. hard/soft spout? DS has never had a bottle or pacifier so is there a type of...
  23. Re: Expectations for starting a freezer stash

    Maybe I was a little unfair to DH! In all honesty I haven't actually raised the particular topic of buying an electric pump yet. I doubt he even knows that such a thing exists. He doesn't think I...
  24. Re: Expectations for starting a freezer stash

    Hi Mommal,
    I am in Italy but I won't be working for an Italian company and they are not subject to Italian working laws, which I believe would give me 2 hours per day for pumping breaks until baby...
  25. Re: Expectations for starting a freezer stash

    I managed to get 1oz from pumping this morning. It's still less than I hoped for but better than yesterday. I don't expect any support from work regarding pumping which means I will probably be...
