    Re: How many feeds per day?

    8-12 times in a 24hour period. If your baby eat while asleep it can usually all be done during those times at this age. How many naps a day does your baby take?
  2. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    There may be some truth to that. But at this point, the baby should still be getting the majority of her nutrition from breast milk or solids. So I guess the place to start is how much were you...
  3. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    This is not usually ever recommended before the year point. Because as you are experiencing, before the year point your supply is still volatile. "Pump slumps" between 9& 10 months are actually very...
  4. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    Well if it helps, I was home with my son for 14months. And then I went back to work full time. And never pumped at all. We just nursed on demand when together. And I started to NUDGE him towards...
  5. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    So I think that at 23 months you should be fine. It sounds like technically your breasts were only holding an oz for you during the day anyway so it's NOT like it's huge production loss. In terms of...

    Have you tried lecithin for your plugs?

    Re: starting cereal

    I did BLS and skipped things like oatmeal. But when we did yogurt @ about 9 months we did it with bread crusts. So it was a dipping food. Same thing with hummus. Other than that we just did whole...
  8. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    Did it effect your ability to nurse when you got home?
  9. Re: overwhelmed. Quit or combo feed? 7 weeks PP, mostly pump

    Clicking is something babies do when there are getting too MUCH milk. It's a really common symptom of OALD. So A. I think your LC is not IBLC and B. 20 pees a day is an asston. So I can see some...

    Re: pacifier?

    You don't want to introduce any artificial nipple until 4-6 weeks in. Because nipple preference happens and you don't want the baby to prefer anything to your breast. So paci's and bottles are not...
  12. Re: Self weaning @ 12 months?? So sad :(

    It's more likely a strike brought on by the ear infection. The pain was probably exacerbated by the position she was in to nurse. Which she now associates with the ear pain. That's a really common...
  13. Re: overwhelmed. Quit or combo feed? 7 weeks PP, mostly pump

    I agree with Mommal. I think you seem to have this idea that you are doomed to have things not work when you go back to work. But I am pretty hopeful that your need to supplement will be minimal if...

  15. Re: Less nursing for more weight gain? 10mo old.

    When you say o% can you give your baby Stats? Like where he's been at each visit? Are you saying he has literally gained NO weight? If that is true, for how long has that gone on?
  16. Re: Less nursing for more weight gain? 10mo old.

    It's actually very common for breastfed babies to drop dramatically on the growth chart the minute they start moving. Is your baby rolling over or trying to crawl? It's NOT normal for a BF baby to...
  17. Re: Oh gosh please help me, I'm in pain

    Can I get more information? Do you mean every minute of the day that you are NOT nursing you have this pain? Or do you mean that right as you START nursing it's awful and then as the feeding...
  18. Re: overwhelmed. Quit or combo feed? 7 weeks PP, mostly pump

    It's all supply and demand. And right now supply is still being established based on how often you demand it. Hence the very frequent pumping to mimic the demand of a newborn nursing constantly. And...
  19. Re: overwhelmed. Quit or combo feed? 7 weeks PP, mostly pump

    This is totally true. I could get 6-8oz 1st thing in the AM in under 30 minutes. Had to work way harder for way less all other times of the day. OP it sounds like you are way more of a success story...

    Re: can it be kept?

    Was it frozen? Or fresh pumped? Frozen milk has to be used right away and no it won't keep until Tues. If you pumped it and it's never been frozen? Taste it. If it tastes OK and it was pumped TODAY...

    Re: I left the milk out...

    Fresh milk that has never been cooled or frozen can be left out at room temperature for up to 8 hours. I regularly would pump and leave a bottle for my DH so that didn't have to mess warming up. My...
  23. Re: Mother has hit the wall after natural weaning.

    I think that being cut off very suddenly from oxcytocin which is the hormone you release with letdown IS actually very similar to feelings of withdrawal. Although....even though I felt it I think...
