    Re: Advice about starting a "pumping policy"

    Oh yeah! I forgot to mention the nurse! Our school nurse offered me a room if my closet didn't work out. Does your school have a nurse?

    Um, okay. Thanks ladies. I'll remember this when I get discouraged that my 10 mo. old is up ~5 times most nights. I think that some kids just want numnums.

  14. Re: On vacation with distractible infant - what to do?
