    Re: Pumping--seeing a decrease

    Power pumping is an awesome tactic too, Mama. If you pump for 10 minutes, don't for 10 minutes, pump for 10 minutes, etc. for half an hour total it stimulates a growth spurt. It usually takes about 3...
  2. Re: What's the very best pump to buy?

    If I had the money to spend I'd get a PISA. . . but instead I ended up with the Ameda Purely Yours as well and I've gotta say it did me really well. I'd use it again in a heartbeat.

    Re: Can't Pump

    Excellent, Tremom! I'm glad to hear that things are picking up. That always makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside doesn't it? :o

    If you notice another dip, yes - I'd say it'd still be worth your...

    Re: first time mom

    At this point they've gotten active and they want to explore their world more. It's all normal and no cause to worry, Mama. If he's still following BF growth charts there's absolutely nothing to...

    Re: Can't Pump

    Mama, you do have good output but I understand your concern. If your pump isn't emptying your breast it's sometimes just the pump itself. Some women respond to different pumps differently so trust me...
  9. Re: Having trouble with my son latching

    mtmama gave you excellent advice. Do nurse as much as possible. Remember that you have to "learn" to pump *and* a pump is never as efficient as your little nurser, so find out if you've got enough...

    Re: is this an ok pump?

    I don't know Mama - I'd say run as fast as you can from that pump.

    I went the co-sleeping way and I'm ignorant of ways to...

    Re: kneading dough

    My daughter would often twirl my hair, play with her own hands, etc. when she was nursing. Does he have a tiny stuffed animal you can put in his hands so that he can knead that instead? That might...
  16. Re: Really struggling with lots of pain (sorry long)

    I understanding how horribly frustrating the pain is. You're just trying to do your best for your little one and you're greeted with hurt after hurt. Keep it up Mama. You're doing fantastic - you...
  17. Re: Really struggling with lots of pain (sorry long)

    Mama, my little one's mouth got bigger and easier to bear about the 6-8 week mark and I was healed at the 8-10 week mark (just in time to catch some horrid thrush, boo). :hug:hug:hug

    Re: Breast & Bottle??

    And my personal experience was that my little one developed a nipple preference when I introduced the bottle at five weeks old and didn't want to go back to nursing.

    Re: How much to bottle feed?

    Does seem a bit much, but not abnormal because it's *so* easy to comfort a little one with a bottle of mama's milk. Just like PPs said, caregiver's don't usually look for another way to comfort first...

    Mama, please do some research on an SNS. It's a supplemental nursing system. You can put your mama milk in the bottle and tape the tube to your nipple so your little one gets plenty to eat AND...

    Re: How hard do you work at pumping?

    I wondered about that. We didn't have the cash to get a hands-free bra so I attempted to make one at home from a sports bra. It didn't do well at all - so I was left holding my flanges the whole...
