    Re: Thinking of renting a hospital grade pump

    I talked with a LC and she asked if my pump motor sounded any different than it originally did. Sometimes they wear out. She thought that Medela would replace it within in a year if I call. She...

    Re: Thinking of renting a hospital grade pump

    I have been dealing with the same requests from daycare. I've been sending one 4 oz bottle and two 5 oz bottles and they think she needs 6 oz bottles. She eats three solids meals a day as well (as...

    Re: Thinking of renting a hospital grade pump

    We are having exactly the same problem! My LO is 10 months this week and my pumping output has also declined to 3 ounces each session. I use the same pumpt as well (PISA). Have you ever replaced...

    Re: Back to all milk?

    Well, it seems like it must have been teething and a response to changes at school (we were transitioning to the next classroom). I kept an eye on the number of wet and dirty diapers, but she seemed...
  5. Re: burning out on puping at work - need a pep talk

    Keep up your good work! We are at almost 10 months and I have had many days when I just didn't know that I would be able to keep it up. It is especially tough when you don't feel like you get...

    Back to all milk?

    My LO is 9.5 months. She was really enjoying solids in addition to nursing and all of the sudden seems to have very little interest in them. For example, yesterday, we were together all day and she...
  7. Re: How much milk at daycare for 9-10 month old?

    I would say the bottle of milk if she wants it. You can always practice with the sippy at home. It is a fun thing to work on in the bath or while sitting the highchair and waiting for you to fix...

    Re: How do you prepare solids?

    Oh, and for the apples, I core and slice them into chunks. Then put them in a steamer (I use a colander over a pot of boiling water) until they are soft.

    Re: How do you prepare solids?

    I've been feeding each of those since about 6 months. The sweet potatoes are great in the oven. I wrap them in foil and put them on a baking sheet (they tend to ooze) at 350 the oven until they are...

    Re: Bottles to use for bm

    We used these too. The only one's she'll take and we use the old fashioned latex nipple. No problem with her taking them all day at daycare and nursing when we are together.

    Re: 8-week-old won't take bottle

    I had this problem when my baby was 3-4 months and I was getting ready to go back to work. I tried every bottle and nipple I could find. I agree with the prior post that sometimes it is helpful for...

    OUCH--She really bit me....

    LO is 9 months and EBF. Today while I was visiting daycare to nurse at lunch she bit me really hard and then held on as she pulled off of my nipple. I'm pretty sure it is still hurting! I have...

    Re: Oatmeal to boost supply

    I've been eating Kashi Heart to Heart cereal and noticed an increase in my morning pumping on the days I had it for breakfast. I checked the label the other day and the first ingredient listed was...

    Re: May need to supplement.....

    I should probably also mention that she weighs 22 pounds and has pretty much been off of the charts since she was two months old. She started in the 50th percentile. We didn't start solids until 7...

    Re: May need to supplement.....

    We offer solids in morning before leaving for work/daycare (she will usually take a few bites, but no more than that), takes a 4.5 oz bottle when she gets there around 9:30, she has a veggie and...

    Re: May need to supplement.....

    She has been sleeping through the night just fine. 10-11 hours. When she wakes up she waits for me to come get her to nurse, but she isn't fussy. I'm sure she would take an extra 4 oz at daycare...

    Re: May need to supplement.....

    Thank you so much for your post! That was just what I wanted to know. I am going to continue on without supplementing with formula for now. Thanks again!

    May need to supplement.....

    I'm starting to feel like I may need to supplement my nursing with some formula. My LO is almost 9.5 months and EBF. She does have solids at least twice a day and that is going well. I nurse her...

    My LO does exactly the same thing. I usually let her get away with it for at least a little while. Sometimes they want to suckle for comfort. When it is time for her to go to bed I will gently...

    My LO is 9 months this week and EBF. I work outside of the home, pumping, and visiting daycare at lunch to spend time nursing her. I am really proud of this! However, I'm really tired of everyone...

    Re: am I doing the right thing?

    My LO was really resisting the bottle when I went back to work. She was about 5 months and wouldn't take it at all, despite our attempts in the weeks leading up to my going back. It was really...
  22. Re: working/pumping & loss of milk supply....HELP!

    I took it for a while when I was having a slump and then stoped taking it. I still had enough milk. It helps to get past times when you are not sleeping enough or you are really stressed. When you...
  23. Re: How can I tell if she is still getting enough....

    Iris, do you give water or juice? I am woried about my LO not getting enough fluids.
  24. Re: working/pumping & loss of milk supply....HELP!

    I have had similar problems. Your body will adjust to the pump over time and help to increase your output. I'm not good about drinking water at work either--when I concentrate on it sometimes I...
  25. Re: How can I tell if she is still getting enough....

    Thanks for your response! How much of an increase in output can you expect to get with a hospital grade pump? I currently use the Medela PISA.
