    Re: 1-year old & weaning

    Thanks dj'smom - it helps me to think of it differently with all the AND's emphasized.

    On the frozen breast milk pops, nope never tried that. Is it as simple as it sounds? Just freeze like a normal popcycle?

    Re: 1-year old & weaning

    1-year old & weaning

    Hi Everyone,

    My daughter turns 1 on the 14th (hard to believe!), and it seems like its time for her to move on from breastfeeding. She strenuously disagrees with me! She won't drink anything from...

    Re: Nipple discharge - lovely

    Thank you SO MUCH! I just looked at the photo of the milk blister, and that looks just like what I have and it makes sense now about the watery milk.

    Re: Williams sonoma

    I have one and use it all the time - it's great! I received it as a gift from my mom, and I'm not sure I would have bought it on my own - not cheap - but having used it for a few weeks now, I really...
  10. Re: HELP- About to give up on breastfeeding

    So sorry that you are having problem after problem... Is she sleeping normally at other times of day or is her sleep overall off kilter? Maybe she's overtired and when she does get a good latch, she...

    My deep freezer seemed to be dying on me just before we were due to go out of town for 10 days. So, I moved all my frozen milk into my side by side refrigerator freezer while we were gone. It's...

    I looked up more info on the TSA site and it says that you can carry cooling gels necessary for breast milk or other medical liquids, so techni ice should be fine.

    I'm going to look that up right now - sounds like they may work well for traveling. I'm with you on the dumping thing - ugh, that would break my heart to lost perfectly good milk :( My husband said...
