    Re: solids/milk at 9 months

    DD will be 9 months in a week. She takes one container of fruit/veggies per day, and a handful of Cheerios (of which about 2 actually make it to her mouth! :lol). Sometimes I'll give her some rice...

    Re: Frustrated! Pump volume depleting!

    Re: Will it always be this hard?

    :hug

    In my experience, no, it will not always be this hard. You've only been back one week - you have to give yourself time to adjust a little & try to relax (MUCH easier said than done, I...

    Re: how much expressed milk per day?

    I think the rule of thumb is 1 to 1 & 1/2 oz. for every hour you are away. I went back to work at 3 months & have always left 16 oz. (I am gone for 9 & 1/2 hours). DD typically eats 12 oz,...

    Re: Tired of Complaints, Time for Cup?

    I would absolutely ignore this. It is your decision. You are not asking her to move the moon. A slow-flow bottle is not a huge inconvenience, for Pete's sake!

    Re: I miss it

    I was incredibly sad when DS weaned at 22 months. It was definitely harder on me than it was on him!

    Congrats to you, mom, on giving your LO the best possible start! :hug

    Re: Will nipple shield help ?

    Good luck! I think the nipple shield can be such a lifesaver - I know I would have never made it with DS without one!

    Re: Weekends and Monday mornings?

    I agree with the others - I send Friday's milk with her on Monday. I don't pump at all on the weekends.

    Pulling away while nursing

    LO (almost 8 months old) has taken to pulling away while nursing. What I mean is that she is still latched on, but pulls her head back & pushes my breast forward with her hands while she nurses (and...

    Re: Working and pumping logisitics

    I use the Medela quick clean wipes to wipe down the parts after each pump & then wash with hot, soapy water each night.

    I do pump into bottles I've already pumped into if they are not full, but...

    Re: Business trip...WWYD?

    I would take her with me. I would miss my lo way too much to go 6 days without her & would worry like crazy about my supply/the nursing relationship.

    Re: What to do?

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I've decided that waking her is the route I'm going to go. I may pay for it in 6 or so months when I wish she was sleeping through the night & is used to waking...
