    Re: solids vs. formula -- long

    Cheers to you for nursing your twins and doing what you do! I also agree that I would move to offer more solids, and shy away from the formula. Formula gets in the way of the babies getting the...

    Re: letdown ?

    You can try to express some of your milk out before feeding either with your hand or with a pump, because it sounds as though your let-down may be a little on the strong side for him. The more you...

    Re: I don't want to wean :(

    If you don't want to wean, I would wait a little bit and reexamine after some time. You may get your period back soon, and you may not. Also, just because you wean some or 100%, there is no...

    Re: 8 months and SICK OF PUMPING.

    I feel for you - pumping is TOUGH! Sounds like you are tired, frustrated, and maybe ready to be done with it. I think that it is a personal choice you need to make. You have been breastfeeding and...
  5. Re: Milk Supply going down after only 2 months?

    Hi there! I would also suggest getting up at night to pump (I know, yuck!), but it helped me increase my supply when I needed it to. If the wet/poopy diapers are there, you are fine! But if you...

    Re: how long to block feed?

    To answer your question about pumping without increasing your milk supply...I guess there would be a few more questions I would have... Are you wanting to pump to have some milk on hand for once in...

    Re: Baby bottle

    Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. I know how it feels to have to go back to work. I also work at night, so I can relate to how you must be feeling as well.

    Has your DH tried swaddling...

    Re: Trying to stop using nipple shields

    You could try pushing your fingertip to the side of his cheek to see if he will "pop" open his mouth more. Another trick is once he is latched on, reach with a free hand (if you have one), and...

    Re: Why is this?

    There is a possibility that she may just want to "suck" but not necessarily "nurse". This can be tricky, since she is too young for a pacifier. I would most DEFINITELY NOT use a pacifier since she...
  10. Re: frozen breastmilk is good in the fridge for how long?

    I would consider the 24 hour period begins when you place the bottle into the fridge. Make sure the ones you have frozen are used within 3 months! I actually have a calendar at home that I mark...

    Re: How early can a sippy be used?

    I like the "Nuby" brand... my daughter caught onto using it very fast when so many others didn't work! Good luck!

    Re: Nursing at Night

    I agree. I would slowly eliminate one of the feedings. Sounds like your little one is just ready to sleep longer stretches at night! Which is a good thing for you! You need your sleep as well. :)

    Re: How much for a bottle at 5 mths?

    Just keep giving him the 4 oz if he is satisfied with that. Don't worry, he'll tell you when he needs more! Well, your daycare provider will probably do that. Your baby's pediatrician can probably...

    Your milk supply may be less in the evening, but it is hard to tell obviously when you are nursing, since you can't see what your LO is getting... From everyone I have ever talked to, most women do...

    Re: HELP! returned to work having problem

    Hi! How long do you pump when at work? I would try pumping for at least 15minutes... are you noticing just 1 let-down or multiple let-downs when you pump? I notice that when I am at work pumping,...

    I agree with the last post. I would be very LEERY of giving a baby that is so young rice cereal at all. Breastfeeding typically starts out a little rough because your breasts are so sensitive, and...

    Re: Help!!

    I can tell you from experience that if you don't pump as often as your baby eats, it will affect your supply, even if it is only a day or two. I would suggest pumping less and getting your baby to...

    Just wanted to add my support as well! I agree with what the other moms have said and its great advice. The other thing I would add is that you probably don't need to pump. I agree you can pump a...

    Re: Baby fussing horribly at breast

    There could be a variety of things going on... my first thought is your let-down may be coming very fast for him. Do you have a pump? You could try pumping a little first before nursing, so that...

  23. Re: Someone? Anyone? I need some serious help here!

    :tumbsup It is possible to have a stronger let-down on one side and a slower on the other. Keep doing what you are doing! It will probably take a few weeks to get him back to the breast entirely. ...
