    Re: when does it "get better"?

    Hang in there, mama!:hug I don't know that I really have much to add, but I will say that both my DD's are/were night nursers. I work full time and DH is a SAHD. I think they really like the...
  3. Re: Traveling while pumping,breast feed

    We were gone for 4 nights from my DD who was almost 1 at the time. No problems going back to BF at all. In fact that's the first thing she wanted when we walked in the door! :)

    Re: Back to work questions, please help!

    I'd agree with the full day off. On the bottles, for my DD, I leave 4 bottles of about 3.5-4 oz when I am gone for 9 hours. Sometimes she'd go through more (4-5). I'd have 3 bottles 'ready to go'...

    Re: first week back to work...

    I agree with PP, a couple of hours doesn't seem long enough for her to need milk. Also, since she's crying most of the time and really stressed the rest of the evening, it's probably separation...

    Re: Accidently left milk out

    I agree, it's probably fine. Were the ice packs still cold? My little 'chart' says you can leave milk in a cooler with ice for up to 24 hours.

    Re: Need to lose weight!!!

    Sounds like you're on the right track following the army plan. Plus, keep BF'ing that will help. Also, cut out any pop or juice if you can, go to water! Get rid of any sweets and think healthy,...

    Re: Worried about soon-to-be change

    I'm not a single mom, but thought I'd chime in anyway. I agree with PP's. First, I'd suggest finding your local LLL now and go to a couple of meetings before LO comes (if there's time). And after...

    Re: adding formula to breastmilk

    From what you posted, it sounds like you're pumping 2x during the day and nursing him once and that you're getting about 4 oz per pumping session. Is that right? To me this sounds like a...
