  1. Re: Figuring out weaning, even though I don't really want to

    Thanks moms. All of your input has helped me. My first day back yesterday went OK, but it was too long to not nurse or pump, so I'm thinking I may still want to pump at lunch for a little bit. ...
  2. Re: Figuring out weaning, even though I don't really want to

    I have breastmilk stored in the freezer from during the school year, so that's what's in the bottles right now. I think it could last through her birthday. But, I'm ok with her getting some formula...
  3. Figuring out weaning, even though I don't really want too

    My daughter will be turning 1 on September 6. We have had ups and downs in breastfeeding, and I have ended up BF her exclusively and enjoying it way more with her than my first. I am more...

  5. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    My baby seems fussy when she's nursing as the day goes on. I guess that might not just mean low milk, but that's what comes to mind. When I let down, it seems again like she's only swallowing for a...
  6. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    I have a medela pump in style. I haven't changed anything since the first week of work. It seems to work fine during the day, which is why I am wondering what's going on. The amount I pump seems...
  8. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    So to continue my saga, I had another drop in milk again last week. It's back up again (it seems) but the night feedings are not going as well. My baby is too sleepy and does nurse much, and last...
  9. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    Thanks for the encouragement! About a week later my milk was back to a good level and has been sufficient. Hopefully I can keep it up!
  10. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    The last 2 nights I have fed her. First night once, last night twice. She didn't wake up like you said she might not, so it went really smoothly. I am still pumping after feedings at home.

  11. Re: Milk supply drop after returning to work

    Thank you so much for your reply.

    At the morning feeding she will feed for about 5 minutes per side, getting milk the whole time. At the other feedings she was only getting milk for 1-2...
  12. Milk supply drop after returning to work

    I returned to work full-time teaching 2 weeks ago. I have a 4 month old daughter. I have been pumping once at work in the morning, nursing her at lunch, and nursing her the rest of the day. She...
