    Re: Colicy baby help

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. Just curious... Have you changed your diet? My son was had colic until I eliminated *all* dairy from my diet. Once I did, he was a happy baby that rarely cried. You'd...
  2. Re: Breastfeeding, Solids, Sleep and Meals?

    My DS is 8.5 months, so I guess I can answer as well :)

    Sleep/Wake pattern: I think my DS wakes up every 2-3 hours to eat. But, we co-sleep, so I honestly don't know.

    Day Eating: My DS is in...

    Re: 8 months and supplementing

    I've been supplementing for the past month or so while DS is at DayCare and at my Parent's house. We found that he enjoyed Soy Formula better than any other one (he gagged on regular formula). I...

    Re: Meds may decrease lactation?

    How long have you been on them? I've had a slight drop in my production since I went on an antibiotic last week (can't remember the name) and didn't even make a correlation? I've gone from being able...

    Re: Freeze milk in bottles?

    I use bags, I pump into bottles and then pour them into the bags to freeze. I feel that they're less likely to break the bottle that way. You know - frozen expanding the bottles and cracking them. I...

    Re: breast pumps

    I think a breast pump is a personal thing.

    I bought a Medela Pump In Style Breast Pump. But, this was when my son was 6 months old and I went back to work. Before that, I used Medela Swing Breast...

    Re: Feeding expressed milk only

    Like PP's have said; to get the hind milk you need to nurse from one breast for more than two hours. I had to do the same with my son for the first few months. It certainly takes a lot of effort....

    I have a Medela double pump (don't remember if it's a freestyle or not). I think I know what you're talking about. I have noticed the dripping more when my nipples aren't positioned properly in the...

    Re: Overreacting?

    My son had this issue. Please still speak with your doctor, but I will share my story with you.

    1. I had an oversupply of milk, so when I let down, it would choke him. Feeding sitting up would...
  10. Re: Is the BF/work combination possible for me?

    When I first started working, I was doing "ride alongs" with the Fire Department a lot (I work at 911). So, I was in a lot of odd places. I pumped in my car. I bought a double pump with a back pack...
  11. Re: pumping and going back to work HELP??

    Here's what works for me. I work 12 hour shifts:

    Last night nursing at 4am.
    At work by 5:30am with baby in the car. Daddy is just getting home from work and meets me in my parking lot. I pump...
  12. Re: Full time working moms:How much EBM does your baby eat while away?

    I have an 8 month old son. When he is in day care, he has a bottle every couple of hours and drinks 2-4 oz at a time. I only get 10 oz a day... So, the day care supplements soy formula when they...

    Re: Jar Stages

    As far as I understand, Stage 2 is not as pureed as Stage 1 and then I guess Stage 3 is even a thicker consistency and introducing meats and I have no idea what else. But, this is my guess. My 8...

    Re: jar food and homemade

    I use organic baby food and try to stick with ones that have more fiber than sugar. I only feed the high sugar fruit ones in the morning (he has all day to burn off that energy).

    But, my goal is...
  17. Re: Yet another "ped pushing foods at 6 months" thread

    This is my first, so, I'm certainly not an expert. And, although I'm still BFing, we also started baby on solids a while ago. In my opinion, there is nothing but advice out there, and it as varied as...

    I wish a close sitter was an option... It's just not in the finances right now... (see post above). You certainly do understand those crazy shifts... One week, I work 4 days (12 hours a day) and the...

    Oh, I wish I could change shifts... We only have a choice of 6am-6pm or 6pm-6am. I would *love* to do a M-F 8am-5pm, though! LOL

    I've thought about the local babysitter option... But honestly, I...

    Re: Question about "babysitters"

    We actually moved into a one bedroom apartment. I don't think she'd be willing to come here for the weekend. There would be no place for her to stay and it's actually almost a 2 hour drive from her...
