  1. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    My goodness I can't believe this thread is still being bumped, I'm so happy mom's are getting the help they need though.

    For Plartist:

    I would go with option 2, pumping and keeping in the...
  2. Re: No access to refrigerator at work - how to store milk?

    Same for me here, used that and never had a problem. I did buy an extra set though, and kept the extra ice pack in the freezer at all times. That helped me out several times when I forgot to put the...
  3. Re: What should go in my pump bag for work?

    These are all great recommendations, and I packed just about everything on the lists others have suggested. I found in the early days that pictures of my LO were very helpful in getting me to relax...

    Re: Roll Call...

    Still here too :hello

    We're coming up on two years here soon. Nursing a little boy is a lot different than a newborn, but we still enjoy our nursing relationship quite a bit and we'll be going...
  5. Re: Time to Hang up the Horns

    I had completely forgotten that I actually get my lunch hour back! Too caught up in my own pity party :o

    Tonight I was so pleased, I picked up DS and he nursed like a champ when we got home just...
  6. Time to Hang up the Horns

    It has finally happened, my 20 month old is absolutely done with the EBM I have been sending for him to daycare. I have been down to pumping once a day for the last 8 months. Which was so easy...

    Re: What do you call it?

    I have always used the words "Mommy's Milk" and started signing milk too around 9 months with him. He signed for a bit before he had much of a vocabulary, and now signs and says milk, even signs and...

    Re: Spoon strike?!?!

    It is very common, my son started this at around 9 months. He wanted to do it himself. I joked with my Pedi about it and she said don't even bother fighting it, part of it is personality and part of...
  9. Re: Baby-led weaning-only for SAHMs?

    Absolutey you can. I work full-time and I we did BLS with very few homemade purees. We provide all of our food for daycare, and I bring what he needs each day. That way they can only serve what they...
  10. Re: Starting Pumping Schedule Need Encouragement!


    You can do it Malleyboo! I'm a WPM too and I'm still going strong for my 18 month old, you can do it and we're here to support and help you :clap

    I would set the alarm on my cell phone in...
  11. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    I totally agree with you Carpentergirl, I don't see how the above quote about lipase and exercise could possibly be accurate. Lipase is created by the pancreas, and diseases of the pancreas can cause...
  12. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Welcome to the boards too!

    I hate to say this, but breastmilk either fresh or frozen always smells 'bad' to me, almost like a rancid butter smell. I would really suggest that you taste the...
  13. Sticky: Re: Scalding breastmilk due to excessive Lipase

    Welcome to the boards! You're in good company :ita

    Wow, that's a lot, good for her! How old is your LO by the way?

    I would do some sample testing, you only need an ounce or so to do the...

    Re: 18 mo- night nursing

    Looks like misery loves company!! He has been a reverse cycler for so long. We have noticed that our son is starting to clearly prefer his crib, he can't easily turn over and tummy sleep in our bed...

    Re: Well i did it

    Great advice, cherish the smiles and all the time you are together. I also keep a special photo album at work that is pictures of my family just for me to see. I get it out when I pump, or if I'm...
  16. Re: strangest things they have eaten?

    Our son is a little gourmand and loves very intense flavors, he dislikes bananas, avacado, mac and cheese, and other plain/unseasoned foods.

    His favorites?

    - lamb tikka masala (he will like...

    Re: 11 ms-still night nursing?

    Ditto for our family, I have an 18 month old who still nurses often at night. We cosleep mostly, it seems more often then not now he's happier in his own crib, but he isn't giving up the night...

    Re: "beyond one" pumping question

    I think you need to start with what your goal is, do you want to pump wean all together or drop a few to lesson the burden? When do you want to accomplish that, next month, or two months?

    Re: "beyond one" pumping question

    You're right, is isn't any of their business. If you went off to smoke at 10 and 3 everyday they wouldn't say a word would they? Do what you feel is right for you and your little one, if that means...
  20. Re: When did your LO's learn that your boobs were in fact under your shirt?

    About 14 months. He knows where they are, that's for sure. His little hands go down my top all the time. It's annoying and endearing at the same time.

    I have thought a lot recently about the many...
  21. Re: So, I scalded...now I am crying.....

    I have to scald all of my milk too, I would second the PP and make sure you use a thermometor to get it to the right temp and for the minimum amount of time. Also, smelling it isn't the greatest...

    Re: How much/where to put it?

    I do quite well with the pump too, actually too well, and have to be careful or I get myself into oversupply and have problems with plugged ducts.

    So, I have often overfilled a Medela bottle. I...

    Re: I need help!

    I would second the sling. When my son was younger, he's a toddler now, I could nurse him in the sling and noone had a clue that I even had a baby with me, let alone that he was nursing.

    Also, at...
  24. Poll: Re: Nursing & pumping or Nursing and Cow's milk beyond 1 year?

    Breastmilk has always been best, no study, scientist, doctor, or lab has ever proved otherwise. Formula was introduced into our society, used and promoted, studied and debunked, and breastmilk...
  25. Re: Whats a good inexpensive pump

    I really love the Medela Harmony hand pump, I think it's about $35 and I've seen them at Babies R Us. I like it too b/c I use the PISA while I'm at work and the parts are all interchangeable.
