    Re: Breast Pump on an Airplane

    I've had to travel many times for work with my pump. There's no issue with bringing it on the plane. At various times they have asked what it is, but haven't given me a problem about it. Although...

    Re: Not sure what's wrong

    I'd also suggest seeing a LC. I was in a similar position with my first LO. My nipples were so sore and I applied the lanolin cream all the time. The LC told me that if your nipples are hurting,...

    Re: Can you thaw this way?

    We typically put bottles with EBM in a softsided cooler with a frozen pack to keep them cool when we're out and about. We carry a plastic cup in the diaper bag. When LO is ready to eat, we just...

    Re: to pump or not to pump?

    Since I pump frequently, I use the Medela PIS Advanced. I'm not familiar with the hand pumps. For all 3 of our LO's, we used the Gerber drop in bottles with the silicone natural flow nipples. The...

    Re: to pump or not to pump?

    I agree with the suggestion of asking at the hospital. Although health insurance is all different, my insurance also covered a medela hand pump. They didn't offer it to me, but when I asked they...

    Re: How can I leave the house?

    I would NIP with my first 2, but my 3rd doesn't do so well. He's easily distracted where he hears something and stretches around, either with my nipple in his mouth (stretched) or leaves me hanging...

    My LO is 4 months old and I have now been able to sleep braless for the first time since he was born - - yeah! No nursing bra and no pads - -what a sense of freedom. I've had OS issues, so this is...

    Re: Screaming at the breast

    I had similar issues with my son at ~3 weeks. He had been BF with no problems, but he started not being able to latch on and crying. I went to the LC and she gave some tips, but didn't diagnose. ...

    Re: working moms successful BF?

    I've pumped and worked through my first two babies and now I'm on my 3rd. I BF the baby before I leave in the morning and then pump 2x during the day. I BF him right when I get home in the evening....

    Re: Infant sign language

    We used infant sign language with both of our older kids and will with our baby as well. We started signing to them at ~6 months. I think the first time they signed back was 7-8 months. I almost...

    Re: PIS Users, bottle advice please

    Instead of buying the medela bottles, I bought a bunch of the cheaper Gerber bottles. They're bigger, work just as well, and don't cost as much. We use the playtex lined bottles though, so I'm not...

    My baby is a little over 3 months old and I've been back to work for about 3 weeks. I'm finding that I'm still producing about 1 extra (4 ounce) feeding per day. I also have a freezer stock of ~120...

    Re: Wow, this is awesome...

    I dropped down to pumping once a day. In the morning I would feed the baby and then pump the excess. This would give me at least 1 extra feeding to freeze per day. Now I'm back at work and pumping...

    Re: Wow, this is awesome...

    I never knew until I read these postings that I had oversupply issues. Breastfeeding was going great with my baby until he was about 3 weeks old and then we started having issues. He had gas and...

    Re: 75 bags of milk gone!

    I can so sympathize with you. I can't imagine! The other night I forgot to put my pumped BM in the refrigerator and had to dump out 14 ounces. I was so upset and my husband thought I was...

    Re: BM freezing container

    I've used the Gerber bags for all 3 of my kids and they work great! I like that they have the ziplock top so that I can stack them lying down on top of each other to save freezer space.

    I ran into this problem too. When I first started freezing, I used the freezer bags that stood up and they were everywhere. What I found works best is to purchase the stackable storage bins...

    Re: Sore Nipples, from pumping?

    One other thing you may want to check into is the size of the breastshields. I'm a working mom with my 3rd baby and this time around I just found out about this. If you have larger nipples, medela...

    Re: nursing while teething

    With both of my first two children the first time they bit me was the last. It startled me and hurt so I yelled out and removed them from my breast. They never did it again. Guess I was lucky.

    Re: Rash Rash Rash

    My son has eczema. We use Cetaphil wash on him instead of soap. Our pediatrician recommended olive oil instead of lotion. We’ve used this on all of our kids and it keeps their skin really soft. ...
