    Re: He latched w/o the shield!!

    I should add that we've been using the shield for going on 11 weeks now. This is the first success we've had EVER without it. I pray it continues and isn't just a fluke thing. Since my first post he...

    need encouragement

    I'm really discourage right now and just want to quit BF. He won't latch without a shield - which is a pain & all my attempts to wean have been unsuccessful. The best we've done is latching for 5...
  6. Re: pump ... to fridge ...5 days... to freeze?

    I use this method, but only 4 days before freezing. Usually it will get used before the freezer. Although - I had to dump 4 oz today because it was past it's fridge life. SOOO mad at DH (he's the one...
  7. Re: out to dinner ... do you sometimes pump + use bottle

    I do this often, for restaurants and church. DS is ALWAYS hungry during service and I got tired of missing service while I nursed him in the nursery. (I'm not comfortable BF in the pew). For Church...
  8. Re: Storage specifics, or, what's wrong with Ziplocs?

    I like the gerbers - they reseal like a ziploc. I did receive a bunch of Medelas from a friend and honestly, I'm not a fan of the twist-tie. As far as using a regular ziploc, I'd worry about the...

    Re: nipple shield issues

    I, too, have nipple shield issues, but more of the mental variety. DS wouldn't latch in the hospital without the nipple shield and now still won't. It's a pain and my attempts to take it away have so...
  13. Re: I need to scream (written vent) about spilling milk!

    I too have cried over spilled breastmilk. My biggest problem is after pumping when I pop the tube off of the flange (Medela Swing) I have to pull so hard the flange and bottle shake and I inevitably...

    Re: won't latch w/o shield

    Thank you all. Here's an update: we're sticking with the shield for now. He nurses like a pro with it. I do offer him the breast without it but only when he's in the mood. If he's sleepy or...
