    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    Little bugger nipped me pretty good tonight. Just looked down and saw some scarlet (not pink) milk just a flowing. :eye Guess all the recent pumping has helped to deaden some nerves so I don't feel...

    Re: What does the transition look like?

    I've been wondering this, too. Aidan won't nurse or ask while he's up playing (8 months), he waits until he's tired & we lay down & he nurses to sleep. Offer the table food after he wakes?

    Re: Thinking about EPing

    Congrats on new baby! What an exciting, tiring, confusing time!

    Try putting the pump somewhere you can't get to easily, closet, attic, trunk, another house, it sounds like it's becoming a crutch....

    Re: My milks going away!

    :hug. I'm sorry to read this, but know what you have provided him is wonderful. The only advice I have is reducing the formula & increasing nursing . Are you pumping? Is there a specific reason you...
  5. Re: breastfeeding and work....how does this work???

    :ita with everything tracie posted.

    4. Shouldn't be an issue unless you double pump at work and he only nurses one side at a time. Then its more like block feeding when at home. I double pumped...
  6. Re: 4 month old suddenly straining to poop, but not constipa

    hehehe, mine strains, too & makes an increasing "aaaahhhh" sound (not an uncomfortable sound) & you can see his face getting flushed, has been doing it since he found a non-crying voice, around 3-4...

    Re: Hungry or teething?

    :D yup! & thankful for mamma hormones that let us think 3 hrs is a good nights sleep!

    When Aidan's teeth came through I was so proud of this accomplishment, like he had something to do with it!...
  8. Re: 7.5 month biting at beginning of session

    Thanks! The encouragement really helps. We had a rough go at it when I got home from work this morning but stuck it out. He bit more today. DH & MIL swear they don't let him bite the bottle but at...

    :thumbsup Fantastic! Congratulations! That has got to be a great feeling to get to 6 months given the previous try. (Side note - I only read the breastfeeding books to 6 months while I was pregnant...

    Re: nipple pain from bite

    :lol yup. Would be easier if 1) they all came in at once or 2) got them when they're done nursing!

    Aidan did that same thing the day his bottom two broke through. Not the best feeling! Avoid...

    Re: Hungry or teething?

    :thumbsup on no more formula! That's fantastic! If he's having plenty of wet diapers, intake should be fine. Sounds very much like teething. Aidan did this around the same time. We used Hylands...
  15. Re: Anyone have success in bringing a 7 month old back

    Working through getting an 8 month back to breast due to a strike. He's only been on strike for about a month now, though. We take baths every day, pretty much hang out topless around the house in...
  16. Re: 7.5 month biting at beginning of session

    Thanks, sorry for the "woe is me" negativity. Sometimes I need to vent. My breastfeeding friends are not much help as most are SAHM & their kids have never had a bottle and another has one that is on...
  17. Re: 7.5 month biting at beginning of session

    When is it really TOO late for getting him back to breast? It's been a refusal or bite every single time. Try to imagine getting refused, making your child cry or him making you cry 8-10 times a day...

    Re: re-freezing milk

    Yech, Some people are put off by this but, taste, it. If it doesn't taste good (which likely will not if unfrozen more than 36 hrs), needs to be tossed. Always rule of thumb for everything, not just...

    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    The 30mm shields for the PY come with inserts to make them 27 so thought I'd see if i could shove the 30mm medelas in there. That was a big, fat, no. I'm going to see if I can sell it & replace it...

    Re: How many strikes?

    Thanks. This one's the hardest so far. Then I think of you & at least I got to nurse & hopefully it is just a strike & not the end of nursing or the beginnig of eping (yech). Had to force myself from...

    How many strikes?

    It feels like we went through nursing strikes as soon as I went back to work, each a week long, in November, December & January. January was longest & most difficult. Then we've been awesome until...
  24. Re: Milk supply dropped after going back to work

    oh yeah, any antihistamines, decongestants, caffeine increase? Yesterday I had 2 extra cups & was about 5 oz short of total for a 12 hr day.

    Re: Bottle vs breast - how many ounces?

    If he's nursing & not yet taking a bottle, keep it that way. No such thing as overfeeding from the breast but there is from the bottle. We did the weighing thing to get caregivers to stop giving him...
