    Re: I'm trying hard to keep going!

    For me what helped the most to boost my supply was pumping very early in the morning. DD was used to nursing around 6-6:30 am so I got up at 4:30 am and pumped (I know- crazy) and got my largest...

    Re: birthday cake alternative

    I used an applesauce muffin recipe. I tried it out ahead of time and dd loved it. So I used a little 5" cake pan for the batter. It was a little dented in the middle, so I turned it upside down on...

    Re: Please Help...Really Struggling

    I can't help with the special diet/milk part, but for us, I weaned dd over a month and she did great. I started by substituting one bf session with a snack, or if it wasn't time to eat then just...

    Re: First day at daycare

    Can they try feeding him before he gets so hungry?? Maybe he'd be more willing to take the bottle then.
    When I first went back to work after having dd, she was almost 11 weeks old and it was really...

    Re: Pacifiers

    DD's ped said okay to use- she was breastfed and well established. She actually didn't like it at first. She was around 12 wks old before she started using it and I never had any problems with her...

    Re: Do I need to wake my newborn to eat?

    I would ask your ped for recommendations. When my dd was born, she was 5lb 12oz and he wanted me to feed her every 2-3 hrs, and that meant waking her if necessary. She gained weight and was doing...

    Re: Any crackers that are healthy for 13mo?

    I give my dd the Kashi brand whole grain crackers and she loves them. They are a healthier brand- you can check the ingredients. She also loves the Kashi cheddar crackers. She's 16 mo now and...

    Re: HELP - Low pumping output, frustrated

    Hang in there- you will have days/times like this. I bf my dd for 13 months and had a few occasions like this also. It's hard not to worry about it, but stress doesn't help your supply either (easy...

    Re: Should I leave my 9 mo old for 6 days?

    Oh that stinks. I was trying to make a similar decision also regarding work. My boss wants me to take leadership training in another state for 5 days. My dd is 14 mo old and I've never left her...
  10. Re: I am days from being here and still have so many questions!

    I had similar questions not long ago about my dd, who turned 1 yr on Halloween. Never supplemented, just nursed and ebm when I worked FT. Congratulations for making it this far- I know how hard it...

    Re: Just a little sad

    I returned to work when my dd was 9 1/2 wks old. The time flew by for me. I also returned to work the same time of year as you (last year Jan 9th). I didn't want to ruin the holiday thinking about...

    Re: Bittersweet Moment

    I know how you feel. My dd is 13 1/2 mo old and just weaned. Our last nursing session was last Sunday and we did the gradual thing also. I'm proud that we had such a good bf relationship for this...

    Re: Has anyone made it to a year?

    Yes! I went back to work FT when dd was 9 1/2 weeks old. I bf when we were together, and pumped at work and never had to use formula. I did come really close a couple times though due to a supply...

    What's your bedtime routine now?

    I'm not sure how to adjust dd's bedtime routine. We've just started weaning the last week (she just turned 1 yr) and now she's taking whole milk mixed with ebm. I'm still nursing her for the time...

    Which session do I drop next?

    Hi,
    My dd just turned one and I'm so ready to stop pumping. I've bf her this far and she takes bottles of ebm while I work FT. I'm definitely pump weaning, and don't mind if she continues to bf...
  16. Re: BM, immune system - is it enough? Help, need support!

    Wow- I can't believe she said that. That would have made me mad too. Thankfully my dd goes to my in-laws while I work so I don't have to put her in daycare yet. But- she's with my niece (7 months...
  17. Re: cleaning parts b/t pump sessions - what do you do?

    I pump at work three time a day, so I rinse out my parts with hot soapy water, rinse, and separate them all and let them dry on a paper towel inside my pump bag (all this after first session). Then...

    My dd did this for awhile. At first she nursed on both sides, and then did the one-sided thing for awhile. I just fed her every 2-3 hours and made sure she got enough. It got uncomfortable for me...

    Re: How long before bedtime?

    My dd eats around 6-6:30 and then nurses before bed about 8-8:15. Usually she falls asleep after one side.

    Too much solids for 10 1/2 month old??

    My dd is 10 1/2 months old and is ebf. She eats Stage 3 foods and I fix her fruit and some veggies fresh almost every day (like apples, mangos, sweet potatoes). She gags a lot and chokes easily-...

    I did notice a decrease also after dd started solids - it was a big difference too. I added a pumping session first thing in the morning, about 1.5 hours before feeding dd- this helped the most. I...
