    Long term plan

    Hi,

    My son is almost 4 months and I am trying so hard not to stress about supply issues. I try to pump 3 times a day, but sometimes my job does not allow.

    Yesterday I did not pump enough...
  3. Leaving my 3 month old overnight

    My in-laws are taking my kids tonight. They live 2 hours away and offered to babysit for us while we go to a company party and we will pick up the kids in the morning.

    My baby just turned 3...

    Re: My freezer is a mess

    Thanks so much! I like the idea of freezing Friday's milk and using frozen on Monday.

    I'll look at donating some too.
  5. Re: Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    I want to post an update. Every day this week Jack has drank the bottles I sent for him. Occasionally he has left an ounce or a tad more and it was thrown out. Once he only drank one ounce, but...

    My freezer is a mess

    This is my second baby.

    My first I never had much of a freezer stash and always regreted it (not sure why). I always send fresh pumped bottles from the day before to daycare and he always ate...
  7. Re: Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    Let's hope I can answer everything. His poops: they have become less overall (usually every day but sometimes every other day), odor and consistency doesn't seem to have changed.

    He sleeps in a...
  8. Adjustments to bottles at daycare

    Jack is 6 weeks. I send three 3oz bottles to daycare for him each day, and pump 3 times at work. I usually end up pumping more than he needs and freeze the excess.

    The past 4 days, daycare has...

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Thank you all so much for the advice.

    Now for my last question. My baby starts on Monday and all of the milk I have pumped is frozen. I have some really early milk, it's like yellow-orange in...
  10. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    Thanks! The fullness is getting MUCH better than it was. I don't find myself needing relief often at all, I do still leak and have very fast letdowns though!
  11. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    When I take the time to count he is nursing about 8-10 times in 24 hours. He eats much more frequently in the late afternoon and evening when he is awake most. He is eating more like every hour at...
  12. Re: Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    I am with or near him almost all the time, except during the day when he is sleeping and I am getting chores done. I am back to work (he comes with me) and his bed is right next to my chair so I can...
  13. Is my 4 week old nursing enough?

    I feel like we go a loooong time (3-4 hours consistantly, more at night) between feedings and then when he eats it's for like 5 minutes and he's done and just looks at me or plays with my nipple in...

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Thank you for the advice! I really appreciate it!

    This is my first time doing bottles with this type of caregiver (a daycare center vs home daycare). I will do that and see how it goes.

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    This has got me thinking it might just be best to send one little jug with 10-12oz each day and the daycare can make him bottles as needed? Any milk left, I can take home and freeze for later or...

    Re: Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Yes I can do that. They have a stupid rule that they can only keep frozen milk for 2 weeks, which seems ridiculous to me. I don't want to waste too much milk lol

    Back to work w/ a 1 month old

    Hi,

    My baby Jack will be starting daycare next week. Currently I am taking baby to work with me for a half day, he nurses before work at 8am, then again around 11-11:30, and at lunch time my...
  18. Re: 10 day old won't latch if breast is too full

    Thanks a lot! Its so easy to go straight to the pump cause he nurses so well after I've pumped. The only discomfort I feel is from being so full (his latch is great and I'm not experiencing any of...
  19. Re: 10 day old won't latch if breast is too full

    I do know how to hand express, albeit not very well. I nurse him on demand, sometimes I know he is hungry though and he won't eat until I pump. I will try hand expressing instead. I really feel...
  20. 10 day old won't latch if breast is too full

    I am having problems with being too full for my baby. He won't latch for more than a few seconds, he just mouths at my breasts and gets his face covered in milk and won't eat until I have expressed...
  21. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    Thanks gals!

    I couldn't agree more, especially about the "comment" section.
  22. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    Exactly!

    People who do not nurse toddlers have NO IDEA what toddler nursing is like. That it is not gross or weird. I can tell a lot of people I know bite their tongue around the subject (which,...
  23. When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    No one from work knows I breastfeed my almost three year old. Yesterday I was talking to a new co-worker (who I do not work directly with) who has a son close in age to mine. We were talking about...

    Re: Is he just done nursing?

    He's back nursing like normal tonight! That was such a weird thing last night, but I'm happy we still have some time. He is nearing 3, so I was trying to be accepting of the fact that our end could...

    Re: Is he just done nursing?

    What questions can I ask to be sure someone hasn't said something negative about nursing to him?

    I work full time, My daycare provider knows he still nurses. He was down to just one session...
