    Re: exclusive pumping the answer?... now w/ update & follow up question!

    Yes, you can take fenugreek for awhile and then stop without a drop in supply. But I don't think you need to take it. You said he is gaining weight well and his urine output is good. Trying to...

    Re: pumping schedule suggestions

    If your little one is still waking at night to feed, then yes, pump at work when you can to help maintain your supply.

    Re: Weaning Pumping!

    Your best option is to slowly cut back your pumping time everyday. Instead of pumping for the full 20 mins or however long you pump each session, subtract 5 mins. Soon you should be able to drop a...
  8. Re: Transitioning from EP to BF- suggestions?

    Yes! It can be done. My best suggestion is keep offering your breast at every feeding prior to giving a bottle.

    Some people may warn against this but try a nipple shield. My little one took...

    Also try this, when your flow rate is slower when pumping, help empty the breast and stimulate more milk production my squeezing your breasts down towards the shield to get more milk out.

    Re: Milk is suddenly cut in half

    How old is your little one? When you are together and nursing, is his wet diaper output fine?

    My little one is 12 months and about 5 weeks ago I noticed a major drop when I pumped at work. ...

    Re: making it work...

    If you can keep her on the breast and encourage her, then do; it is easier then being an exclusive pumper. Trust me! Been there, done that. And I choose to pump due to my weird work schedule. ...

    Re: Thrush and my freezer stash

    Yes, I wouldn't store any of your milk till all signs are gone. Pump and use the milk, do not freeze it. Freezing doesn't kill thrush. If you have frozen any of it since the signs of thrush,...
  13. Re: Switching to electric pump - will my supply mess up

    I think your supply will do fine with going from manual to electric.
    I've used my electric most of the time, but the few times when I was exclusively pumping, my hand pumped the same amount out. Now...

    Re: pumped milk with thrush

    Yes, you can only use that milk while being treated for thrush.
    If you freeze it and use it later on, you will most likely cause your LO to develop thrush again and start the awful cycle again.

    Re: pumps are messing up.

    I don't have any advice. I've never been able to hand express my milk.

    Re: Working and storing my milk

    I would stick it in the refrigerator at work, then in the freezer at your home if not going to use right away. Freshly expressed milk should be made cold before freezing.

    skins

    Should I peel the skins off of any fruit prior to feeding to my DD? I'm sure she would love to try some cherries and grapes.

    What you’re explaining is normal poop. It's going to be less runny then you're used to because you're giving her more substance to eat versus just liquids.

    Yes, you can freeze milk that is in the fridge, you want to chill the milk before freezing actually. I'm not sure where I read this, but I've read it is best to freeze milk within 6 hours of pumping...

    Re: Do you get support?

    Congrats and Good for you!!! :clap
    There is nothing wrong with pumping only. (I did/do it by choice!) Would they be just as unsupportive if you were putting baby up to the breast?
