    Re: Pump and Dump (alcohol)

    I think the amount of alcohol in the pumped milk will be the same as when you pumped it - as I understand it alcohol can travel between your blood and milk freely. Your liver removes it from your...

    Re: Pumping at Dulles airport

    This is probably too late now, but the bathrooms by the international arrivals areat have nursing rooms. I'm not sure they're much better than a disabled stall in 'niceness' but they are separate...

    Re: putting parts in fridge ?

    I don't really have anything to add to the fridge questions - I just put all the parts straight into a ziploc bag and then in the fridge, then take them home every evening to wash - but to add to...

    Re: we're two weeks away!!

    Congratulations on the nearly a year! My lo is a day younger than yours, I can't believe it's gone so fast. Do you have to wean her at night? I had to go away with work a while ago for three...

    Re: Milk protein allergy...

    You should definitely check out the allergy forum, there's loads of great advice there. I was the same 9 months ago - blood in my lo stools from dairy allergy and pretty much everything in our house...

    Re: How to Prevent Freezer Burn?

    We put the lansinoh bags inside a big ziplock bag in a deep freeze and don't get problems with freezer burn. I think I read somewhere that it helps and it keeps milk from similar dates together so...
  7. Re: HELP!How do you keep baby awake for feeding?

    My lo was very sleepy at first too - it was just too warm and snuggly on me. We would strip her down to her diaper and wipe her with a wet wash cloth to wake her up. My lc suggested putting an ice...

    Re: FILLED with Questions!

    About the bottles/nipples - my lc says it should take them 5-6mins per oz to finish the bottle.

    Re: PISA Question

    They say it is, but it's not as slow as some others (we had a slightly disgruntled baby when we changed brands!). We used it from very early on though and had no problems with nipple confusion.

    Re: two problems ...

    I'm dairy-free and love my cereal too, for the first few days I was eating it dry as I couldn't do without, but hadn't managed to get to the shops to buy any other milk. Now I mix almond milk and...

    Re: Blow Outs With Pamers!

    I'm not sure how much disposables are but I don't think cloth has to be that expensive in comparison. We use prefolds (about $20 a dozen depending on size, we have three dozen and wash a batch...

    Re: Need lots of help

    I'm sorry you're having so many problems. We had to supplement with formula for the first couple of weeks and now I've been exclusively breastfeeding for just over 6months so it can be done. My lo...
  13. Re: Problem nursing after pumping during the day

    I agree with pp that it may well be that stressing about not letting-down is making you not let-down. I go through phases of it taking ages and then get stressed about it which just makes it worse. ...

    Re: Mommy & baby constantly sick

    I find getting enough sleep essential for fighting off colds, however that's easier said than done!

    Re: How Much Milk-Conflicting Info

    My lo has increased the amount she takes at daycare. Everything I've read and been told by my lc is that they take the same amount of BM until 6 months, but that just isn't the case for us. She...

    Re: Scared about breastfeeding child #2

    I had a lactation consultant come to my house - I did have to pay,$100-200 I think, but it was so worth it. She sorted out all my problems in about 30 seconds and I was at home so I could be sat...

    Re: New at this and lots of questions...

    I'm sorry you're having these problems. I don't know why it's happening, but I would see an LC asap. In the meantime, if it were me, I would pump after feeding him. You'll be telling your body to...
  19. Re: Diaper rash?? Yeast infection?? milk intollerance?? how do i know??

    When we had bad diaper rash our pediatrician said to use a spray bottle of warm water and then pat (avoid rubbing) dry with a dry wash cloth. She even suggested using a hairdryer if necessary to get...

    Re: Could you please release my nipple?

    Have you tried breaking the suction by sliding your thumb down under her top lip so it replaces your nipple?

    My lo does the pop too and just now she decided to clamp down just beforehand!

    Re: Pumping at work/losing supply already!

    It's much too soon to start worrying! I always have more milk on Mondays and there are always good and bad days. How long are you pumping for? I find my milk will decrease during the week if I...
  22. Re: Will it ever be enjoyable? Sorry about the long post.

    I had the same thing too, then one day around three months she learnt to latch herself on. It had hurt every feed since she was born and I'd been really sore between feeds and it instantly went...
  23. Re: EPing and going back to work (plus other stuff)

    I have a Medela PISA and find it better than the Lactina. The stimulation phase works really well to make my milk let down, but it takes forever on the Lactina. I think it might be because I'm used...

    Re: Returning To Work---How can I prepare

    I agree with pp about building a freezer stash. I find I have the most milk in the morning so it's a good time for me to fit in an extra pumping session. If you've not used a pump before now would...

    Re: Suggestions/Advice on Breast pumps?
