  1. Re: Being apart from 2.5 year old for 4 days

    Great to hear! It's so reassuring to hear from moms who were able to travel and come home and nurse again. I know it's always a possibility that she'll go on strike but it helps to calm my fears to...

    Re: Best Medela Pump for flat nips?

    I agree, the PISA is probably your best bet for a Medela consumer-grade pump. I initially bought a Freestyle thinking that it was a higher end and therefore better pump and was disappointed. It is...
  3. Re: Being apart from 2.5 year old for 4 days

    This is all great to hear, thank you for sharing your ideas and experiences. I will bring the pump and pump once or twice a day I think. That way I know I'll keep some supply over the 4 days. I am...
  4. Being apart from 2.5 year old for 4 days

    I nurse my 2.5 year old upon waking and down to sleep at night in weekdays and at night and naptime on weekends. I have been away from her overnight before. When she was one I would pump before bed...
  5. Re: Weaning my 27 month old toddler - help

    I don't have any advice on how to wean entirely because I'm still nursing my first who is just about the same age as yours. So I've never weaned anyone before. But I have had good success with her...
  6. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    Congratulations! You worked very hard to get here and now you get to reap the reward of relaxed on demand breast feeding without bothering with bottles or pumping. It is so much easier isn't it?? I...

    Re: Joint pain

    I started this thread when my baby was 10 months old and she is now just turned 2. We are still nursing but not nearly as much, usually at bedtime and upon waking and once overnight. I have...

    Re: night weaning backfired

    And no she doesn't sleep while nursing any more. She will kind of snooze a little but one of the things that has changed in our nursing relationship as she's gotten older has been that neither of us...

    Re: night weaning backfired

    Thank you all so much for all of the helpful thoughts and advice. Meg I was slightly offended at what I perceived as a suggestion on your part that I was not catering to her needs but on second...

    Re: night weaning backfired

    Thanks for your reply. It's totally fair to frame this as a scheduling problem, but I have to make a living and it's just not an option for her to get part of her night's sleep at the time when we...

    night weaning backfired

    I posted about our sleep troubles a little while ago on the sleep board but after more reflection I have reframed the whole situation in my head and I think it has to do with our night weaning so I...
  12. Re: low production last ditch effort..

    Another thing to try might be to rent a hospital grade pump for a few weeks. I had a very similar experience as yours around 9 months and the Medela Symphony that I rented made a huge difference for...
  13. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    I might be completely off my rocker but I read this and my heart actually started beating faster. I am upset because to me this reflects such a fundamental misunderstanding in the way breast feeding...
  14. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    Also, just to ramble a little more, I am confused about why your LC is suggesting you COULD drop one or two pumping sessions and then evaluate whether it affects your supply.... at last count I think...
  15. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    I am so glad you are achieving a pain-free latch again. That is so great!

    I am a little perplexed as to why she's not comfortable with your LO taking 3 oz in a nursing session. How many times per...

    You're doing it! Keep going!
  17. Re: Toddler wants more milk than I have

    Your husband sounds like a reasonable person and a good guy. My husband, a self-proclaimed feminist and generally all-around very supportive person, also expressed some discomfort with me nursing in...
  18. Re: Pumping for toddler while away on business trip?

    The rule of thumb would be to pump when he usually nurses, so you could aim for 3 times during the day and then upon waking in the morning... but if it were me I think I would just pump before bed...
  19. Re: Toddler wants more milk than I have

    I think you might find that this evens out over time. When I first pump weaned, I noticed a big drop in supply. My DD wasn't quite as expressive about wanting more milk than I had as yours is, but...
  20. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    I hope it goes well this weekend. You are going to feel like a new person when you get off the pump. Let us know how it goes, OK??
  21. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    Nothing you've said indicates to me that your baby has trouble transferring milk. If he is able to get 3 oz in a feed, he definitely has the ability to get milk. He is still small and nursing takes...
  22. Re: New Medela Symphony Rental - increased output?

    I had a major 9 month pumping slump too and the Symphony helped me get my supply back up. I ended up renting it for a month but I think I was noticing results after a couple of weeks. It was not...
  23. Re: Break up with the pump!! I want to ebf

    Every word you wrote in your initial post, I could have written myself two years ago. I worked closely with an amazing IBCLC during the first 4 weeks of my baby's life and she held my hand through...

    Re: What counts as "milk"?

    Here is a reality check on normal milk intake for different age ranges: http://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/pumping/milkcalc/

  25. Re: 18 months, no real nursing limits, anyone else?

    My nursling is going to be 2 later this month and at 18 months we were nursing on demand when I wasn't at work.

    Slowly, I've started to introduce some limits since then. e.g. I am less and less...
