    Re: Fenugreek Side Effects

    I did not notice increased spit-ups in my dd, but she did get bad gas after I took MOre Milk Plus for 3 days. I suffered diarrhea as well as low blood sugar (I am not diabetic) so I decided to stop...

    Re: More Milk Plus

    I have been taking More Milk Plus for almost three days now and I have not seen much increase in my supply (too soon to tell?) but it has given me terrible diarhea. So far I haven't noticed adverse...

    Re: pumping one side

    If you are still spraying when you stop, then you will most likely get more milk if you keep pumping. If you are happy with getting 3 oz, then go ahead and stop at 3 oz, but if you want to freeze...

    Re: Freezer Stash Rationing

    That's a really good question! You sound like me. I think of the most random *what if* situations when I'm nursing DD to bed in the evening. I also get some of my best work-thinking done then...

    Re: pacifier reccomendations

    We tried dozens before Anya took to the Avent silicone pacis. I think she likes them because we use a nipple shield to nurse with and that is silicone as well.
    Anya does comfort nurse quite a lot...

    Re: Poop question

    When my dd went three days without pooping, I called the Kaiser Advice Nurse and she said it is totally normal for some breastfed babies (even those not on solids) to poop as infrequently as once a...

    Re: How to warm ebm for cereal

    I just started rice cereal tonight and I put the EBM in our bottle warmer ($20 at Target). I had to put the remainder back in the fridge, so it probably won't last me more than one more re-heating,...
  9. Re: Dwindling supply, so many possible reasons

    She seems to nap just fine at daycare--sometimes better than at home! I think I may have figured out my problem. Today I experimented with pumping every 2-3 hours at work instead of every 3-4. I...
  10. Dwindling supply, so many possible reasons

    Where to even begin? My DD is 6 mos old and I have been back to work and pumping for about 3 months. I've noticed a dip in my supply and I'm not sure what to do. When I pump at work (about 3x a...

    Do I have oversupply?

    I pump about 20-25 oz. per day and my dd only eats about 15 while at daycare. I have freezer full of excess that I basically never need to dip into since we always have fresh pumped leftover from...

    How do you handle dinnertime?

    5:30pm to 8pm seems to be the most challenging part of our day. I'm curious how you other working mom's handle this tough period every day.
    I pick up DD from daycare at about 5:30pm and get home...

    Re: What's your pumping output?

    I pump 3-4x per day and always get 6+ oz out of one side and 2-4oz on the other, totaling about 8 oz per session. I am trying to lower my supply because I have a freezer full of milk that I never...

    Re: Paxil

    My doctor actually prescribed SaraFem (another brand name for Prozac) and said it was safe to BF. Unfortunately I had a bad reaction to it, so I stopped taking it. I'm 4 months post partum now and...

    Re: Good breast pump during flight

    I have both the Avent Isis and the Medela Pump In style and I sometimes prefer the Isis because it is so portable and I actually get milk out faster because I control the speed of the suction. I...

    I seem to have a very abundant supply and feel like my freezer is overflowing with milk that will never get used or "go bad" before I get a chance to use it. I nurse in the morning on one side and...

    My DD is 4 months old and recently went from nursing for 20-30 minutes each session, to only 15 minutes, sometimes as little as 10. In the beginning I got so used to each session taking almost an...
