    Re: breastfeeding behavior

    I always keep the other breast that is not being utilized covered, which helps reduce twiddling. Thankfully my daughter is pretty down-to-business when she nurses but if she does get idle hands...

    Is the diaphragm the part that connects the tubing to the pump? How often should it be changed? And how often should the little flap inside the flange be replaced? I read they can get small holes in...

    Pump Maintenance

    Hi All,

    I was just wondering what the recommendations are for keeping up the maintenance on pump parts. Is it just the flap in the flange and the membrane that attaches to the pump that need to...

    Baby Slings

    Hi All,

    My baby is four months old and I am just now reading about baby slings. I have an infantino hands-free carrier which I feel doesn't fit well/hurts my back, and, more importantly, I can't...
