    Re: When should I start pumping?

    Here's a little back story first: I'm a SAHM of an almost 2 year old DD and a 10 day old DS. I don't NEED to have a supply of milk stashed in my freezer, but I would like to just in case I end up...

    My son is 2 days old and is my second child. I nursed my daughter and didn't have too many problems with latching initially. My son keeps getting a shallow latch and my nipples are sore and...

    Re: At my wit's end!!

    I have a Medela Pump In Style that my sister-in-law passed on to me. Maybe it's too old and I need to replace some parts? I have never really responded well to the electric pump. When I pump I...

    Re: Comfort nursing

    First of all, thank you to everyone who has responded--I was beginning to think I'd get no help on here!
