    Re: How to Start using Frozen Milk

    I think everyone's milk is a bit different. Fat floating on top is fine. The best way to tell is a taste test. Each baby has their own preferences regarding milk temperature and freshness as well....

    Re: How to Start using Frozen Milk

    I like the idea of using one frozen a day too. Another option is to freeze your Friday pumped milk and use your oldest frozen milk on Monday. That way you are always rotating. I found my milk frozen...
  3. Re: Traveling/Driving Long Distance and Breastfeeding

    I always found the backseat more comfortable for breastfeeding. The armrest was the right height for support on one side and the car seat worked on the other. In a different car I used the diaper bag...

    Re: Breastfeeding and Pumping

    If you don't have lipase issues you can always freeze Fridays pumped milk and send in your oldest frozen each Monday. That way you keep your freezer stash new. Wish I'd known that from the beginning....
  5. Re: Bottles and nipples advice for returning to work

    I had over active letdown and oversupply so my lo was used to fast milk, but we stuck with slow flow bottled. I think this was ultimately more breastfeeding supportive. In part, this was because my...
  6. Re: pumping output not enough for 3 month old

    Are you getting enough rest, drinking enough water, eating enough calories (protein), feeling extra stresses? It sounds like you have tried pretty much everything pump related except the hospital...

    Re: Pumping - one side or both?

    I thought I'd share my experience, though everyone is different. I had oversupply.
    I always fed one side but pumped both starting at 12 weeks when I went back to work. I did have issues with...
  8. Re: When to stopping an extra pump session

    Could you pump during your commute to work? That way it would still be in the morning but it would be after she nurses in the morning. I always liked pumping during my commute making that time in the...

    Re: Mastitis lump

    I have something called a lactating adenoma. I did not have mastitis, but did initially think I had a plug. My lo is 33 months and this started when she was @ 24 months. I had never had a plug so...
  10. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    I had the 9 month slump. I tried everything to get it back up except get a hospital grade pump. I just kept pumping (a bit more frequently when possible) and it seemed to pick up on its own in a...

    Re: Pumping at work for an almost 1 yo

    Keep up the good work! I pumped until my dd was 18 months old. I became a sahm after that. I pumped a little less frequently after a year, but always felt good about leaving my milk when I couldn't...
  13. Re: Best bottle to not screw up latch/suck?

    When I went back to work we tried tons of different bottles. Turns out it was just time needed to learn how and we ended up using the bottles that came free with my pump. We spent a lot of money...
  14. Re: can you have plugged duct with no symptoms?

    Mine stayed around because I kept putting strain on it from a lazy nursing position. Then I switched and my back got sore. I really need to hit the gym and work on core strength. :)
    Anyway, best of...

    Re: Question about bacteria...

    Maybe try spraying on a little vinegar then rinse. If you don't mind the smell.
  16. Re: can you have plugged duct with no symptoms?

    Could it be a strained muscle? I've had to change positioning a bit in the past because I strained a muscle. The pain was just under my breast almost along one rib but seemed to be in my breast as...
  17. Re: Supply decreasing due to pumping at work?

    Overall size if breast does not necessarily indicate flange size. I too thought I needed the smallest but found the middle size actually were a better fit. You may want to double check that you have...
  18. Re: Newborn baby nurses but doesn't get full

    I really don't want to add confusion or needless worry to your situation, but I wonder a bit about the preference for a side. Some babies just have a side preference with no reason. Some prefer the...

    Re: need help fast!

    Mommal- Thank you for that link! I wish I had that resource to hand to the doctors I fought with my first child. It might have made the fight a bit easier. I am printing that so I have it just in...
  22. Re: how many times should I pump each day?

    I found that I needed to pump every 2-3 hours (20 mins per session) to get about 1.5 oz per hour away as mommal pointed out. However, my coworker had to pump every 2 hours. She found if she went 3...

  24. Re: Going out of town - baby won't take bottle

    My dd always liked her ebm cold. Warming it up seemed to change the taste in a way she did not like. So we gave it to her direct from the fridge in a bottle with the nipple at room temp. Also, we...
  25. Re: Why do I feel teeth all of a sudden.

    Just wanted to update for those searching in the future. I'm pregnant. I guess me feeling teeth was the beginning of the hormone roller coaster I'm on now :) Wish me luck :)
