    Baby won't take pumped bottles

    My baby is 10 months, and previously took breastmilk bottles fine....frozen, fresh, whatever. However the past few days she won't drink from them, however she will happily suck down the formula from...

    Re: Stained teeth

    I mentioned night nursing to my dentist, and she said good job, breastfeeding is awesome, do it as long as you can. That being said, I think my dentist was a special one. If they ask, I'd be honest...
  3. Re: Advice: how much breast milk is enough to keep breastfee

    I had similar supply with my first, and was probably about 25% milk and 75% formula until we started solids. Once solids were in, I was able to decrease formula and keep nursing. I nursed my son...
  4. Re: Any advice for 12-month old who doesn't eat?

    Since he seems to enjoy the crunchy texture of chips and rice crackers, how about trying freeze dried fruit? It's also sorta crunchy, but dissolves pretty easily in the mouth. The chips and rice...

    Re: pumping at a conference?

    I know I can still nurse but not pump, but I'm paranoid that if i drop my lunchtime pumping that J won't want to nurse anymore (the anxiety of supply issues never leaves, i guess). I know it's...

    Re: pumping at a conference?

    Thanks for the input. I've got a freestyle pump, so I don't need to worry about an outlet, thankfully. When I called the location, the guy offered me the bathroom. I'll probably just use the car,...

    pumping at a conference?

    Anyone gone to a conference and had to pump? I'm trying to figure out where I can go, and my only options seem to be the ladies room or my car. I can't skip the lunchtime session because I'll be in...

    Re: Leaking from bottom of th flanges

    I had this issue with my freestyle. The flanges have a little gap on the tube connecting side, and if i tilt wrong, milk may sometimes drip out. I haven't really found a solution for it, other than...

    Re: need some help

    The LC I worked with suggested goats rue as a way to increase breast tissue. There are also different medicines available as OTC or prescription (depending on your country) that can be helpful. I...

    Re: Lack of support already!

    I've just learned to not bring up nursing/sleeping stuff with people. If pressed, I'll mention that John ends up in our bed halfway through the night, but that's about it. People at work know I'm...

    Re: How to start the weaning process

    Yeah, I was worried about weaning too, but I let him lead, and he'd want to eat more and more solids. He's down to nursing a few times a day, with various night nursings (depends on what's going on...
  12. Re: Can hold LO and pump at the same time

    When I was trying to up my supply, I'd have the brestfriend propped up on the table and have him nurse from one side while pumping hte other. Then switch. It really sucked, overall. When i pumped...

    Re: 3oz in 3 weeks?!

    Have you tried charting the weights on the WHO charts and seeing where the curve is? Maybe try breast compressions and offering a bit more frequently to see if that helps things.

    Re: galactogogue weaning ?

    I'm just about weaned off of domperidone at this point, and didn't notice a decrease. The pumping sessions at work still put out the same per session as last year when he was 2 months old.

    I'd...

    Re: Would you believe this?

    I'd thaw the milk and taste it. If it tasted fine, I'd have no problem giving it to my baby. Even if the antibodies aren't at 100% (like when it was first pumped), it's still better than...
  17. Re: I'm nervous!!! Is she going to be fine??

    I haven't noticed any increased gassiness from broccoli. But my son eats all sorts of veggies without a problem (saurkraut included...that surprised me). I just make sure to offer them on the mushy...

    Re: stress and pumping

    I haven't changed the dose for almost 2 weeks, and my weekday pumping hasn't changed much. How long would dom related changes take to kick in?

    Coupled with stress, John isn't wanting to nurse as...

    stress and pumping

    I'm wondering if anyone has experience with stress affecting their pumping output? Do the numbers rebound after the stress is gone? Or does it permanently lower supply?

    We're in the process of...
  20. Re: Pan during BF after I returned to work?

    It sounds like the pacifier and/or bottle use is affecting your LO's latch. I would go back to basics with her and hold the nipple so she gets a deep latch. Jack Newman's website has some videos on...

    Re: Frozen BM stored past one year

    I doubt it's bad. The antibodies probably aren't as strong as when it was fresh. If you are worried, you can always taste it before giving it to her.
  22. Re: freestyle - when do you replace valves?

    I replaced the plastic valve when it wasn't sealing properly. I could feel a decrease in suction if I didn't hold the valve in a certain way.

    Sorry I didn't see your earlier post. I don't come to the increasing milk forum much anymore, since I've given up trying to increase my milk. Don't give up on the boards; it's still an encouraging...

    Re: 3 meals?

    Besides, even if you give a 3rd meal, it doesn't mean your son will chunk up. My guy gets 3 meals a day when my parents watch him, and he's still 5th percentile. Maybe give him lunchtime to...
