    I have the Medela Pump In Style for my at home use, but I am traveling without LO at the end of June. I am looking for a discrete pump that I can use in the airport, in a shared room, etc.

  2. Re: Upping daily food/caloric intake to increase milk flow

    I know what you mean. I am starving and half the time can't grab anything but food off my 21 month old's plate.

    I was told to look at it this way - women in third world countries nurse their...

    Re: Questions

    The green poo is totally normal with OALD. The milk is passing quickly through his system and isn't as digested as the rest - and he may not be receiving enough hindmilk. Try block feeding - that may...

    Eats constantly - normal?

    My LO is 3 weeks old and I am beside myself with his eating. He eats constantly when he is awake. I am not sure if this is a growth spurt, or if it is normal. He eats every 30 to 45 minutes when he...

    When do I start pumping?

    When should I start pumping milk and introducing a bottle to baby? (I am expecting next week)

    I plan to breastfeed most of the time, but I may need to give an occasional bottle due to my schedule.

    Re: Cracked and bleeding

    I would pump at least one feeding a day and give her a bottle until you heal. You need to be sure you protect your breast and nipples because the skin is so sensitive, and plus it strains you...

    Re: sore nipples

    Your nipples will be sore and you will want to quit, but then one day it just gets better. Tell yourself just to hang in there each day and before you know it you won't even remember the soreness.

    Re: Cereal in fruits and veggies! (VENT)

    Maybe just tell them that LO doesn't like cereal. My dd ate rice cereal and oatmeal at first, but now that she knows I have fruits and veges for her she won't touch it. Even if I mix it in with fruit...

    Re: Firm Poop like Play-dough

    My dd is the same way. Once she started getting solids regularly her poos became "adult - like." My pedi says a 6 month old baby now has the digestive system of a teenager, so I would assume the poos...

    Re: Sleeping through the night

    Your body adjusts to what your baby needs. Just remember, if you pump at night you will have to continue to do so because your body will continue to think you need milk at that time.
