  1. Re: conflicted about night weaning

    No great advice, but this is a very encouraging thread for me, too. Daughter is also almost 16 months, some nights are "better" than others, but some nights she is attached more often than not, or...
  2. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply


    No helpful advice to add to what the other ladies have already said, but I really admire your dedication to doing what's best for your baby.
  3. Daycare transition and increased nursing?

    My fifteen-month-old girl is in her first week in the Toddler Room at daycare, and not adjusting well to dropoffs. They tell me that she calms down a few minutes after I leave, but I leave her...

    Re: Breastfeeding in public

    Good for you for being out and about and nursing at 6 weeks! I think you're right that the nursing cover draws more attention than the lack of it. I have used a scarf only rarely, when I was...

    Re: Traveling with Pump and EBM

    The pump is small enough to count as your "personal item" instead of a purse/laptop/etc., but I'm pretty sure it does count against your total of one carry-on and one personal item.

  6. Travelling without 11 month old -- milk dilemma

    I'll be travelling for work when my baby girl is 11+ months. I was hoping to get enough breast milk stashed to cover the two weeks I'll be gone, but for a variety of reasons I don't think I'll be...

    Re: Best Electric Pump

    I like my (used) Hygeia, but I don't have anything to compare it to, except my little manual Lansinoh.
  8. Re: Using Cereal for exclusively breastfed baby

    Definitely a lot of old ideas still out there with the grandmas. Even my mom, who is usually pro-BF, told me I should get the baby used to formula in case I ever needed to use it.:rolleyes:

    Re: Pumping at work beyond a year:

    Wow, didn't realize that about NY, that is awesome. Though I hear you about not wanting to take advantage.

    Re: Her first stuffy nose

    Saline drops or spray to thin the mucous a bit, and then suck it out with a Nosefrida. We've made it to 9 months without any serious illness or fever, but too many minor colds to even count.
  11. Re: traveling for work first month postpartum

    I started pumping once a day or so at around 3 weeks, b/c that's what I got out of "Working Without Weaning." Sometimes I would pump one side while the then-tiny baby nursed on the other. (Hard to...
  12. Re: traveling for work first month postpartum

    I think bringing baby (and a family member to watch baby) makes the most sense to me. IMHO, interviews are not the time to be changing hearts and minds. I have a lot of friends in academia, as well...
  13. Re: Curious about about changes in pump output after vacatio

    My pumping output reliably dips a bit after traveling with my LO and without pumping, but I find it goes back up when I get back into my usual pumping rhythm.
  14. Re: Memorial service and pumping issues:

    Sorry to hear about your choir director's passing.

    One thing I haven't seen anyone else say is, make sure you have good bra pads so you're not worried about visible leaking. That stresses me...
  15. Re: Really need some advice, I feel like I don't have a clue

    *hug* It will be okay. I understand the stress of the unknown, and the "what if?" about an emergency while pumping. I manage to pump while being the single coverage doc in an ER overnight. If...
  16. Re: 6week old eating too often? Too much? Please help.

    It sounds like you're doing great! Tiny babies just do eat ALL the time. As they get bigger, they will naturally space out their feeds a bit more, but the first few months it can seem like the baby...

    Re: Period

    I love my Mirena iud, but some women seem to be very sensitive to even the low level of progestin in it as far as supply. The copper iud wouldn't affect your supply, but it's known to cause really...

    Re: I need sleep

    Hang in there, mama. It really does get easier! Hope the doctor's visit is reassuring and doesn't just give you new things to worry about.

    I am a big fan of safe cosleeping, but I understand...

    Re: I need sleep

    What mommal said. Overall infant mortality in the developed world is very low. So while SIDS may be the leading cause, the absolute numbers are still small.

    Re: Formula for one night?

    How old is the baby? The general guideline for breastmilk is that babies take an average of 1 to 1.5 ounces per hour apart, but formula amount increases with age. But if you're just away for a...

    Re: Pumping only 1-1.5 oz

    What would happen if you just nurse on demand for a day without pumping? I'm wondering if that would help reassure you that you are making enough milk for your baby, because it sounds like you are! ...
  22. Re: I dont know what pump its better???

    If you've got activist leanings, Hygeia is the only WHO Code-compliant company. Their pump is also the only officially multi-user closed-system pump, so you can sell it or give it away when you're...

    Re: Thinking of buying a pump

    12-14 oz seems pretty good for a 12-hour shift! I bet with the right flanges you'll be able to increase it a bit, but you're starting from a good place.

    How much milk it the baby drinking? The...

    Re: Pumping at work - How often

    It doesn't have to be so absolute. I respond very well to the pump, too-- I pump more in a session than my LO would take in one bottle. I find that I can get away with pumping less often than the...
