  1. Re: Back to work & away from baby for 16 hours

    Set an alarm on your cell. Time goes fast & you could get so involved doing your work, you might forget to pump.

  4. Re: Don't Want to CIO- but EXHAUSTED!!!

    I'm going through the same thing! Glad you're not doing CIO either. (Please google the research based articles that talk about how CIO is bad for baby.) I let 6 mo DS sleep in his bouncer next to...

    Re: Empty breasts after Pumping

    I don't want to build a large supply-just enough so that I don't always feel like I'm playing catch up. I really appreciate all of your help!

    Empty breasts after Pumping

    I'm not sure what's going on, so I'm hoping someone can help.

    For the last few days, after I pump, my 6 mos. DS wants to nurse and unfortunately, my breasts seem empty. He fusses and nothing...

    Re: Teaching Time-NO place to pump

    You're right-my PISA does come with a battery adapter. Didn't realize it. Also trying to build up a stash by freezing BM. Will try suggestions, especially pumping in car.

    Re: Teaching Time-NO place to pump

    Thanks for all the info. I am seeing other teachers postings and realizing that I can also pump in car. I'm going to look into the hands-free bra & adapter. Freestyle might be another option too...

    Teaching Time-NO place to pump

    I work in a NYC school and have never heard of anyone pumping at work. There's no plugs in the bathroom for pumping, and since I probably won't have my own classroom, I don't know where I'm going to...

    Re: Medela PISA..Ugh

    I agree with this! Currently using PISA for when visitors are coming, but need to return to work in 3 weeks. My DS is 8 wks & I am wondering how I'll provide enough BM, when I'm only pumping 2 oz a...
  13. Re: Not pumping what LO eats during day

    This is an issue I have too. I pump 2 oz in a session. However, it is not enough. Most of it comes during the stimulation phase, and even if I pump for 15 minutes more, hardly anymore of my milk...

  15. Re: constant breastfeeding stops crying-HELP!

    He's been BF on my breast almost all day, and he barely sleeps (1 1/2 per day for the last 10 days). I'm glad he's alert, but this BF is wearing me out! Also my aunt who BF suggested that maybe...
  16. constant breastfeeding stops crying-HELP!

    My 5 wk DS can only be soothed from crying when I BF him. During these crying episodes he is rooting. Often he is actually eating, although sometimes I know he's just sucking for comfort. So this...
  17. Re: fussy baby means low production?

    I feel the same way and it stresses me out, which is not helping. I did read that it helps to eat oatmeal. I've been trying it, and hoping it works.

    Re: constantly nursing need support

    My DS is 1 mo old and is doing the same thing! I feel so much better to hear that others are in the same situation and that it's normal, even if it's exhausting. I also try not to feed him...
