    Re: More flange talk!

    Glad your appointment went okay, seems you learned something at least!

    Sadly I cannot buy the new flanges. I'm totally out of money, not a penny to my name :( And I'll go overdrawn when a direct...

    Re: More flange talk!

    Hi, thanks for replying.

    You know, I think I have the same trouble as you- I think it's actually my areola being pulled in and swelling up, not my nipple. I feel so stupid that I didn't know. But...

    More flange talk!

    Hello again. I'm looking to get some larger flanges for my breast pump. But how to I know which size to get? There are 30.5mm/28.5mm and 36mm/32.5mm. Is there a way to know without actually trying?

    Re: Support? What support?

    Thanks! I'll give those a good look.



    I can't view that link or aap.org. :shrug ARGH! Thanks though, I'll keep trawling for what you mentioned.

    Yes on the different positions. Mostly he will...
  5. Re: Another breast flange question. Does it matter?

    Hmm, not as such I don't think. Only sometimes I push around towards my rib cage and I sort of circle the pump and my breasts around my rib cage a bit a few times a session. If that makes sense. I...

    Re: Support? What support?

    Thanks for all that! I will give it a go.

    No, he was a good birthweight at 8lb 10oz and I estimate him now to be closer to 11 at 5 weeks today. His mouth doesn't sound little :lol

    Forgive my...
  7. Re: Another breast flange question. Does it matter?

    If no one else minds, I don't mind either. I just feel a bit stupid! :doh



    I think they do, I'm going to look for some now. What joy it would be if that one small change made a big difference!

    Re: Support? What support?

    Tell me about it! :shrug



    No one who's examined him has ever mentioned it to me. But he can stick his tongue out over his bottom lip- does that mean it's all right?

    Re: Support? What support?

    At first I was having trouble with comfortable positioning after the caesarean section but that's not so much of a concern now. Generally he does eat a lot and I can't get enough for one feed in less...

    Re: Support? What support?

    Argh, just realised I posted this in the wrong forum. I am rubbish!

    It's like a lipstick. I know it's all wrong but I've never been able to get him to open his mouth right up....
  11. Re: Another breast flange question. Does it matter?

    Thanks, I will see if I can find some.



    It didn't go well. Actually, it didn't go at all as you noticed. Thanks though.

    Support? What support?

    Hi everyone, I've posted a couple of times in the pumping forum but not here. This is something of a rant, I hope that's all right.

    To cut a long story short, I don't breastfeed my 5 week old son...
  13. Another breast flange question. Does it matter?

    I didn't want to hijack the other post of a similar nature so here I am.

    Just a question related to the size of my Ameda breast flanges. I read this:...
  14. Re: Pumping due to pain, is 2oz a time normal?

    They were both sick, or one was on holiday, I don't remember either. There's a support meeting in a nearby town tomorrow, I'm hoping to go to it.

    Thanks!
  15. Re: Pumping due to pain, is 2oz a time normal?

    Oh good- there's some hope then!

    I fed him twice today but neither time was right and I am sore. Argh. :cry

    Just looked through my hospital discharge information to see if there are any helpful...
  16. Re: Pumping due to pain, is 2oz a time normal?

    You put it so much more eloquently! Yes, I shall dig out my contact numbers and ring. Do you think it might be too late for any real improvement though? He's been on a bottle since he was 10 days and...

    Oh, thanks for the fast response! I was expecting to have to wait for ages.

    I ought to call. I suppose I feel a bit embarrassed. I know that's silly, that's what they're there for. And I'm not the...
  18. Re: Pumping due to pain, is 2oz a time normal?

    Someone from the hospital was supposed to visit but she never came. Apparently there are only two of them and they're both ill.

    I've tried to breastfeed him a couple of times today, which is more...

    Hi, thanks so much for taking the time to reply. Means a lot.
