    Re: Uneven!

    I'm not using a hospital grade pump. I have bought all different sized horns and given them all a good try. I seem to get the most and am more comfortable with the 24's. I have been getting up in...

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    O.o I never thought of pumping while driving. Can you imagine the look on the officers face if you got pulled over for speeding or something? "Ma'am. I'm going to need to see what's under that...

    Uneven!

    I've been EPing for a few weeks now and no matter what I do my left breast always produces more milk and stays about a cup size (or more) larger than my right. I'll back off pumping so much on that...

    Re: 4 weeks and completely frustrated

    They kept telling me that there was "no reason for the baby to be hungry and losing weight" so I could store milk. That's not true though! I feed her every 2-3 hours and she's happy and satisfied. ...
