  1. Re: Funny (or not so funny) Pumping Mishap in my office!

    Oh that's funny. I use an empty office that only 3 people have keys to. These three men have all had to unlock it for me, depending on who is at work that day.

    Except turns out the computer...

    Re: used pumps?

    I am using a used pump - borrowing it from my best friend.

    I don't know if I would borrow or buy a pump from someone that I don't know, but plenty of people do.

    It seems wasteful to have every...

    Travel Q's

    Hope some of you can help me. My son is 9.5 months old, and next week (just before his 10 month birthday!) I am going on travel for about 3 days.

    I am still BF, and I want to know if anyone has...
  4. Re: How many days worth of milk to drink a little for the holidays?

    You probably have enough already. I generally just wait to have a glass of wine until my son is asleep.
  5. Re: Need some encouragement... perhaps advice

    My son is 9 months old and has 6 teeth. He has bitten me exactly 4 times in the 3 months that he's had teeth.

    I said "ow", pulled him off, and buttoned up each time. He now knows that if he...

    Re: Let 2 week old cry through the night?

    My son didn't sleep through the night until 4 months. At two weeks, it's too early. In fact, my doctor told me that for the first 2-3 weeks, I had to WAKE him up at least every 3-4 hours if he...

    Re: A couple more questions...

    -How long did it take you after your conception date that you "felt" pregnant?
    Not sure how to answer this question. I tried for 1.5 years to get pregnant. I took the pregnancy test before I...

    Re: Cleaning and pumping

    My supply didn't go down. I pump only 1x a day, but I pump until I get no more milk.

    Some people wash their parts. I rinse them well (so no more breastmilk), then wash and sterilize when I get...

    Re: Daycare wants more EBM, WWYD?

    My son was eating about 15 oz at the same age, and he was at daycare from 8 am to 4 pm.

    However, he now "holds out" until I get there and we get home (out of choice). I would ask your dcp to make...
  10. Re: Daycare says breastfeeding over lunch will be an inconvenience

    Congrats! I'm very happy for you. It is so important to find a dcp whose philosophies match your own.

    Re: Less Breastmilk now?

    My son is 9 months old, weighs almost 20 lbs.

    He nurses/takes a bottle 5 times a day. He definitely gets less than he did at 6 months. At 6 months, I'd guess he took in about 30-32 oz. Right...

    Re: Organic Baby Food

    The only reason we aren't making our own cereals is that the ped. feels our baby needs the iron in the fortified stuff.

    We've also never had a problem with constipation, but apparently a lot of...
  13. Re: Your best tips for an A-type personlity during 1st weeks....

    Ah well, I'm also an A-type personality.

    My husband also only took two weeks off.

    I set little goals for myself, and I'm very organized. For example, I would do my "chores" (going for a walk,...

    Re: How long did you send breastmilk to daycare?

    I'm still sending it, and my son is 9 months. I plan on doing it until he's one year. He started becoming less interested in the bottle at about 7 or 8 months, so I only send 10 oz. Sometimes he...
  15. Re: Do I have to breastfeed or can I pump exclusively

    My best friend pumped exclusively for about 9 months, but she also had to supplement with formula.

    I'm the opposite...love nursing, hate pumping, and look forward to hanging up the horns (no...

    Re: Organic Baby Food

    Also, a lot of the organic cereals are whole grain cereals these days, so they are more nutritious than plain old white rice cereal.

    We started with cereal at the pediatrician's recommendation. ...

    Re: Going back to work..need support

    I've been back at work for 6 months. I still have that strong BF relationship with my son. It doesn't bother me that he gets a bottle, though he does prefer the breast. So he tends to nurse more...
  18. Re: Daycare says breastfeeding over lunch will be an inconvenience

    I don't think it should be an issue. My dcp has certainly been flexible with that. I would just tell her that you are sorry that it's inconvenient, but you will be unable to go home (not enough of...
  19. Re: How big is your freezer (and your frozen stash)

    I don't have a deep freezer. It's the top half of the fridge. 2/3 of the freezer (the bottom portion) is full of milk and baby food cubes. The rest is adult food.

    We keep it rotated, so every...
  20. Re: When do you switch to solids first, then EBM (per meal)?

    I think it depends. My son is also 9 months, and he rarely has the solids and milk at the same time. Occasionally I will nurse him after he has solids, but mostly they are all at completely...

    Re: Organic Baby Food

    I use organic whenever I can find it. For example, I can't find organic barley, so I use regular barley. But I do buy organic rice and oatmeal cereals.

    There are certain foods that have high...
