    Re: Period already?!

    This is so strange. I think that must be what happened to me. It lasted a day, super light, and was gone. I'm crossing my fingers it wasn't real!!

    Re: Dairy-free suggestions

    I'm dairy-free (DD was having blood in her stool and projectile vomiting). I don't worry a lot about calcium (maybe I should!), but I really wasn't consuming a lot of true dairy beforehand (I don't...

    Period already?!

    I can't believe it and I need to vent! I think my period just came back. I have super light spotting today. This would definitely explain my uber grumpiness, lack of patience, decrease in pumped...

    Thanks! I'm going to buy some wax paper for the future. I really hope that I'll be able to pry them apart without too much damage!
  5. Re: Does BFing cause tooth decay? How to find pro-BFing dent

    I BF my son until he was 2 years old... ALL NIGHT LONG (lol). I didn't take him to the dentist until he was 3 (oops), but he didn't have any cavities. From the research that I have done, it seems...

    Proper way to freeze milk?

    Okay, I am being dumb. I have been freezing the extra that I pump each day (in small quantities) in breast milk bags. I didn't have the luxury of extra milk with my son, so this is new to me. I've...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    If she doesn't finish a bottle, they have to toss it after an hour. I filled them with 3 ounces, so the last half ounce from each had to be tossed. It's a licensing regulation. :-/

    Yes, I read...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    I'm glad I didn't give the extra today, because she only ate 2.5 ounces at a time, for a total of 10 ounces (with 2 ounces down the drain, sigh). And I miscalculated yesterday - I pumped 5 ounces...

    Re: I can't find the answer

    I don't see a problem with freezing it. No bacteria from his mouth and not previously frozen - I would definitely save it!

    Re: Want to wean 2-year-old co-sleeper

    I got the idea from someone here to put band aids over my nipples and tell DS that I had "boo boos" and couldn't nurse. It worked amazingly well when DS was 2 years old. I wonder if yours would buy...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    Thanks so much!!! Yep, about a 9 hour separation, so I will stick with the 12 ounces. I'm excited that 3 pump sessions might be enough - I hope that will continue to produce enough. I was having to...

    Re: Night-weaning questions

    I day weaned first, since I work, so I'm not sure if it'll be the same, but... When I weaned my son just after he turned two, I think it only took about four weeks of occasional asking before he...

    I'm so excited! My insurance is completely covering a Medela Advanced Personal Double Breast Pump (ML) 57081! Medela told me it's the same motor and parts as the PISA. Sweet! :clap

    Re: Pump life

    Ohhh right! I actually forgot I would even need some for day 1, haha! I'll probably wait another 2 weeks or so. I am really dreading pumping. :-(

    I'll get a new set of flanges just in case. :-)

    Re: Pump life

    I tried it once last week for maybe 7 minutes and pumped 3 ounces. With DS, I had low supply issues and got about 3 ounces in a 20 minute session, so I think the pump is okay? I'm not really sure...

    Pump life

    I have a Medela PISA that I used with DS about 5 times a day for a year (2011-2012). It still functions, but I am not sure if it'll really do a good job this time. I go back to work in about a month....

    Well, I guess it's going pretty good so far. I haven't nursed since 5 a.m. on Friday morning. He did remarkably well going to sleep on Friday and Saturday nights, but he woke up 4 times as much as...

    Thanks for sharing your positive experience! I may try to nurse him to sleep for a while still, and cut out the middle-of-the-night nursing first.

    I think the first time was in the left breast, and the last two were in the right. I don't know if that makes a difference.

    Re: I think it needs to be time

    The first and second time were different antibiotics (because the first one made me vomit). This third time, they gave me the same kind as last time (Diflucan). No, it hasn't been cultured.
