    Re: Donating Milk?

    I would wait at this point before donating to better see what your needs are. Some women dont respond as well to the pump- i only could pump 2/3 of my daughter's daily volume when at work so we...

  5. Re: Bottle to Breast for Difficult to Wake Preemie

    Here some thoughts that came to mind as I read your post:
    1) spend as much time as you can skin-to-skin. I mean no bra, just a diaper between you two. That may tempt her over time to begin rooting...

    Re: Baby led solids?

    I think 4.5 months is too young to actually eat the food but to hold, explore, even taste I think would be fine. My LO seemed interested at 5 months, grabbing my food & watching intently as I put...

  17. Re: Dip in milk supply and nothing is seeming to work

    Pump in style is NOT a hospital grade pump. It may work better than the swing but it's not designed to increase milk supply like a symphony or lactina (medela brand, I don't know the names of Ameda...
  18. Re: Only getting 1-2 oz each time I pump. Should I just stop

    Yes, pump for at least 10 min. I pump for 20 min & get 3-4 let-downs in an average session with "bursts" of milk produced. It makes a big difference. I used to only pump for 14 min but when I...
  19. Re: Need more suggestions for increasing supply?
