    Re: How do you manage working and parenting?

    I wish I had more advice but if you lived like me a lot of the housework would be put on the backburner and I know a lot of people would prefer not to do that. I'm always exhausted and definitely...
  2. Re: New here and need some help (guilt, reverse cyling, how to do it all!)

    I chose to RC, and it does work for me. I do wake up every now and then to switch her from side to side, but I drift off. I suggest finding a comfortable way to co-sleep. My most "secure"...

    Does anyone Reverse Cycle on purpose?

    I have been.

    I gave up on pumping at work when my milk supply dwindled to the point that my baby was drinking more formula than bm. I was so discouraged! I really wanted to be able to offer her...

    Re: Beer?

    OK, nevermind, I read up on specifically "beer" and lactation and found a link that shows that "hops", an ingredient in beer increases "prolactin levels" in a nursing mother, but that it does not...

    Re: Beer?

    Well, that's the reason why I won't drink it to boost letdown, I've read up about alcohol inhibiting it. But, do women swear by it because some ingredient in it does work? My husband has a hobby of...

    Beer?

    Is brewer's yeast what is used to make beer? I'm just curious because I have heard from a few moms that beer helps with let down, but I don't want to be drinking all that alcohol either. If it's...

    I hate it... Am I alone?

    OK, I have to admit, I hate pumping. I really do. I feel like a cow. I'd rather be home with my peanut, nursing her naturally. But, I don't have a choice, I have to work, and that means if I want...

    Re: Odd response from HR on work-pump request

    Me too. I certainly don't want to be working while I pump. Take it as a break. Bring a book to read instead!:ita

    Re: "Watery" looking BM?

    OK, I have felt that. I just didn't know that's what it was. It's like an ache somewhere in your breast right? But, I haven't noticed any milk come after it. I don't make much milk, I've never...

    Re: "Watery" looking BM?

    It did get a little whiter at the end, so OK good to know that's normal.

    Re: Have you had to supplement with formula

    If your baby needs it, by all means!

    I mostly breastfeed when I'm with the baby, and I pump at work to provide for the sitter. But we have already had quite a few special incedents where we had...
  18. Re: What is bare minimum to pump to keep up supply??

    I pump 3xs a day for about 10 minutes each or until the milk stops flowing. Some days are better than others but I typically express 10-13oz/day at work. My dd needs 12-14oz/day so I am not always...
