    botulism in apples?

    We went to 9 month check up today. Babies are doing great. Nurse practitioner saw them and "reminded" me (like I should already know) that there are 3 things that I ABSOLUTELY cannot give a baby...

    slimy food solutions

    Decided I am done with spoon feeding my 7 1/2 month twins. We have no trouble with allergies in my family and so I just started putting small amounts of what the rest of the family eats on their...

    how many sessions in 24 hours?

    How many times do you feed your LOs in 24 hours. I am interested in how few sessions might be normal. Mine only nurse about 4 times a day(approx 7, 11, 3 and 7) and sleep all night. Is that...

    let down reflex physiology

    Is the let down reflex a centrally mediated process (involving hormones and receptors in the brain) or does it occur entirely in the breast itself in reaction to LOs sucking? Practically what I want...

    Re: not pooping

    One of my LOs went 3 WEEKS one time, and when he finally went, it was soft and he acted like nothing was wrong. Freaked me out, but afterwards, I decided not to keep track anymore. EBF babies just...

    Re: Pumping medical student? Resident?

    By the way, one of the few benefits of being a pumping resident or med student is that, as long as you have a L+D floor, chances are there will be a pumping room and hospital grade pumps easily...

    Re: Pumping medical student? Resident?

    I had my 1st DS in when I was a 3rd year resident in emergency medicine. I pumped religiously for a full year and breastfed until he was 22 mos. I got a little good- natured ribbing from my...

    wake'm up to burp?

    I nurse LOs to sleep almost every night. During day, I always get at least one burp out of each after feeding and they definitely get fussy and seem uncomfortable at times if I forget. After...

    how much/ how often to feed solids

    Just started feeding 6.5 mo twins solids. Still nursing on demand (no real schedule) during day. I know BM is most important til they're a year and don't want them to replace nursing by filling up...

    hot day/ dehydrated babies?

    We took LOs to amusement park yesterday and it was REALLY hot! I nursed all day on demand, but even though I was drinking fluids all day, my breasts never felt full. The babies had fewer and less...
  11. Re: not wanting to give up, but is she getting all she needs?

    Just reread your post, sorry, it sounds like you have been breastfeeding all along. Maybe you could pump after feeding and try to use EBM to replace formula supplement. Also, you will need to...
  12. Re: not wanting to give up, but is she getting all she needs?

    Could you please clarify, have you been breastfeeding all along and supplementing with formula after offering breast, or are you hoping to relactate after several weeks of only giving formula?

    Re: Totally Ticked Off!!!!

    Maybe LO would get less frustrated if you pump a little before offering breast to stimulate let down so she doesn't have to work so hard or be so patient when she's really hungry.

    Re: how long to pump

    I use Avent Isis also. I don't think there is a "right" amount of time to pump. Pump until your breasts feel empty. If you have low supply, you might pump a few minutes longer to help stimulate...

    Re: nursing bottles

    I use Avent bottles with Number 1 or 2 nipples which are slower-flow. They are compatible with my pump so it makes it easy.

    Re: Bottle amount v. breast amount

    I think 3 oz/hr is quite a lot--that would be 72 ounces a day. That's how much my twins (about 18 lbs each) take combined. I bet it was the bottle and maybe your LO just missed you so nursed when...

    Re: What do you do while pumping?

    I have Avent Isis hand pump and a small conference room with a door lock where I pump. At first, I used to sit and pump, but found myself concentrating too much on how much I was pumping. Now, I...

    Re: How many BMs are normal?

    Great job on getting started late with breastfeeding. As long is your baby is peeing well, gaining weight well, not vomiting, doesn't seem in pain and has soft poops when they finally DO go, they...
  21. Re: Changes in Breast size during/after breastfeeding?

    Is there anyway you can pump at least once while you're at work? I think it's pretty normal to have a better supply in the morning after resting all night and less in the evening, but you will...

    Re: correct way to use Avent Isis??

    I use Avent ISIS hand pump everyday and I love it--even better than my double electric PIS or Avent Duo. I have been able to pump enough with it for my twins to have EBM while I'm at work. I also...
