    Re: Another Pump Weaning Question

    Thanks! I am hoping to be off the pump by Memorial Day. I have a manual pump and if I could get to the point where I could use that on days when I have to work late I would be thrilled. Ellie does...

    My dcp does the same thing. I send the food and note what is for breakfast, lunch , snacks. They feed it as they see fit. Remember that kids often act different at home and dc. Your son may be great...

    Re: Another Pump Weaning Question

    I feel full in the morning when I wake up and then all afternoon starting around 4 or 4:30 until she nurses for bedtime. You are completely done pumping, correct? I want to make sure there is a...

    Re: pumping at work - no fridge

    If your office and car are air conditioned I would not worry too much about that. My ice pack is out of the freezer for 12-13 hours/day and I have been fine. If there is no AC or you are still...

    Another Pump Weaning Question

    I have started pump weaning and I am not sure what is going on with my supply (I know it is dropping but beyond that) Instead of pumping on a schedule I am only pumping when I feel full. I have...

    Re: Pump weaning

    Thanks sonogirl. That does help. We are going to introduce yogurt and cheese in about 2 weeks. If all goes well with that I am going to try to drop one of my work sessions. I have to keep the am one...
  7. Re: Latch Issues and Nipple Confusion (Concerned Father)

    So nice to see a father and husband on here and speaking as "we." Just keep supporting your wife best you can. I found that YouTube videos helped me a lot when my daughter's latch was off. I could...

    Re: Pump weaning

    Thanks bfwmomof3. My concern is the opposite. I am not very demand responsive anymore and my supply dips significantly with schedule changes. I am worried about running out of milk but I need to at...

    Re: weaning almost 2yo...maybe?

    They do sell inexpensive hand pumps that might make it a little easier for you. I have the Medela one and love it for outings where my double electric would be inconvenient or impossible.

    Pump weaning

    I am ready to start the pump weaning process. My daughter is 13 months tomorrow. I have been pumping every morning, twice at work, when I get home and sometimes before bed. On the weekends I pump in...
  11. Re: Finally made it to a year!! Now what?

    Thanks @sonogirl. I'm pumping 4-5 times per day right now. Once in the AM after she nurses, twice during work, while she is nursing when I get home from work and before bed. It takes all of that to...
  12. Re: Finally made it to a year!! Now what?

    Thanks! We nurse in the morning, when I get home from work and at bed time. The AM and PM nursing are both really long and the one when I get home is more of a reconnecting thing so I am usually...
  13. Re: Almost to the 2 year mark... :)

    That is so cute! I love stories like this. Makes me look forward to continuing nursing Ellie until she is ready to stop.

    Re: I want to get my period!!

    I would gladly trade places with you :) I could live without it for a few more months!
  15. Re: feeling bad about pumping and dumping

    I would not stress about it. I am not sure what the procedures for donating are but I imagine there is some screening process. If you were going to be there for a week or two I could see finding a...
  16. Re: Finally made it to a year!! Now what?

    Thanks!
    Mommal- we tried yogurt at 10 months or so and she had a reaction so no new foods until we see the allergist. Holding off on nuts, honey, strawberries, chocolate, fish, eggs and dairy just...
  17. Finally made it to a year!! Now what?

    I thought this day would never come! I am still nursing and pumping as much as ever (well as frequently as ever-supply is another issue). Ellie is showing no signs of letting up any time soon.
    I...

    My daughter had did all sorts of weird things while nursing (like only nursing if she could stick a toe up my nose :) ) She has grown out of most of them and occassionally returns to an old habit or...

    Re: Sad and confused. What comes next?

    bfwmomof3- what did your pump wean schedule look like? I am envisioning a lot of one step forward two steps back. Did you nurse on demand as you were pump weaning? I have a feeling my mondays will...

    Re: Sad and confused. What comes next?

    I hear about the insurance today after 3 so if that does not work I will start calling and emailing LLL leaders and look into rentals. I just finished pumping and used the smaller shields. I got...
  22. Re: 12 month old Nursing strike or something else??

    Re: Sad and confused. What comes next?

    I would have to check with the day care and the doctor about coconut milk since my understanding is that it was just identified as a tree nut. I was thinking rice because I know she is not allergic...
