  1. Re: Help..pumping exclusively and worried about supply

    I started to build my supply with the most basic of interventions and worked my way up to pretty much max force. Here was my progression; you may find some things here that work for you. I'd also...

    Re: change Pump?

    One to two ounces after nursing sounds great! Keep up the good work, momma!

    Re: Fennel for increasing supply. Dosage?

    I added fenugreek to my arsenal and saw a good increase. I took the 610mg capsules - three of them three times a day. Once my supply was up I found that I didn't have to take them anymore.

    Re: sleeping longer at night

    8 weeks seems really early to be sleeping through the night. I'd stick with on demand feeding for your LO. They do eventually sleep longer all on their own, and our experience is that it doesn't...

    Re: Breastfeeding, Pumping, and Supply

    Three weeks is a prime time for a growth spurt when the baby will naturally want to eat more and more often, so it may just be a case of bad timing. If LO is eating more often, then he's doing the...

    Re: vent: mil watching while pumping

    My MIL used to come sit next to me while I was b/f and put her head down by the baby for a closer look. That bothered me so much (it just felt intrusive on a private, intimate time with dd) that...

    Re: Do I HAVE to have a Breast Pump?

    Life pumping is not easier!!! In fact, it's more than double the work because you have to pump and then feed the baby and then clean all the bottles and pumping kit. It's exhausting, too, because...

    Re: Hi! Newbie here with a question

    I had much better output with a hospital grade pump - Medela Symphony - than with the PIS. You said that you'd tried everything except Rx...does that mean that you've tried fenugreek? I had success...

    Re: How to wearn from pump..?

    I'm headed back to school next week but, sadly, my class schedule does not allow me to pump with enough regularity to keep up my supply. So, I've had to start weaning off the pump hoping to be off...

    Re: freezing after vacation

    Hmmm...14 hours sounds like a long time for something to stay frozen solid in a cooler. It would certainly stay super cold, though, if you just packed it as refrigerated milk. Good luck. It's...

    Re: Cleaning pump tubing

    The steam bag from Medela works great and it can be used 20 times (I think).

    Re: Just tired...

    Awww, momma, you've done an awesome job! You should plan something nice for yourself when the one year mark rolls around and you're off the pump. Since you're donating so much, does that mean you...

    Re: Bottles best for breastfeeding

    We used the Playtex Drop-In system with latex nipples and that worked fine until I had to stop b/f due to other reasons.

    Re: freezing after vacation

    EBM is good in the fridge for eight days, but I'm not sure how long you can keep it in the fridge and then freeze it. I'd imagine seven days or so since one frozen and thawed it is only good for 24...

    Re: how long to pump?

    Most babies can empty a breast more efficently than a pump, so you may need to go longer than 5 minutes on the pump. You might try just pumping until you get what you need for his bottle and then...

    Hi, Kristina! I'm lurking lately, not having much to add since I'm weaning off my pump on my way back to work. I guess I feel kind of hypocritical posting knowing that my time on the pump is...

    PS: How wonderful that your place of work has a lactation room and provides a pump. That is just beyond words.

    Re: birth control

    We opted to avoid hormonal bc options and stuck with condoms so that there was no interference with milk production. LO is 18 weeks old now and no sign of AF yet. But, we're taking no chances with...

    Re: taking away the bottle completely

    He may be really efficient and done in 12 minutes. If he seemed full and didn't cry, then he was probably full and happy. Just keep an eye on wet and poopy diaper counts. If those are ok, then...

    Re: Newborn weight loss concerns

    You're doing a great job, and it sounds like your instinct is good. Feeding on demand is the best way - why force a baby to eat when he's not hungry (unless there are medical reasons why he's not...

    Re: Over feeding my 3week old?

    My LC says that it's very unlikely that a baby will overeat at the breast. And, as the pp mentioned, I'd avoid the pacifier until your LO is older if you can get away with it to not have any...
