    Re: I hate it... Am I alone?

    Keep it up! I know it's hard to pump at work - I did it for a loong time and I hated it too! Near the end, the stress was really getting to me and affecting my supply. I tried to reduce the stress...

    Re: Low Milk Supply

    I think you did the right thing. Let the baby nurse, nurse, nurse - that's the best way to boost your supply. You can even pump in between feedings to get a little extra boost.

    I dont' know why...

    Re: Baby's Tongue is White

    If your baby has thrush they may not be in any pain or discomfort. Most babies don't notice the thrush, it's Mom that ends up hurting! You may notice your nipples have a shiny pink appearance and...

    Weaning away... and back again?

    Ok, Allen started losing interest in the boob once he turned about 11 months old. I was pumping at work but I HATED it. My supply was dropping and I was stressing out over the whole thing, so I...

    Re: Weaning is here... so is AF!

    I appreciate the thoughtful reply. He does still nurse but only once or twice at night. I don't pump at work anymore and he gets the toddler formula at daycare (instead of EBM). His Pedi appt is...

    Re: Ways to celebrate end of breastfeeding?

    Weaning is here for us too and I'm going to get new bras - NOT NURSING BRAS! There is a nice bra shop where they take very good care of their customers and that's where I'm going. Their bras are...

    Weaning is here... so is AF!

    I knew weaning was around the corner, now AF has shown up and it's confirmed. Last night I tried to BF Allen before I went out to a meeting and I think he did it just to humor me. He nursed for a...

    Re: Twiddling While Nursing

    Allen does this too - but he twiddles my hair, or just pulls on it. If I have my hair back in a ponytail he'll search for it and stop nursing to look up at me as if to say "Where's your hair gone?"....

    He had a bottle of formula on Firday at daycare and was none too happy about it, but it's what I had available. I haven't made a final decison yet and I will be...
  10. Ameda PY is A-OK

    I bought the Ameda PY because my LC at the hospital recommended it for several reasons - the one that struck a chord with me is the fact that you CANNOT contaminate the pump with milk. I was going...

    Re: Infant formula vs. Toddler formula

    Hmmm... Allen is almost 10 months old and the toddler formula does mention 12 months and up but they say consult your doc for use under 12 months - so that's what I'll do.

    Thanks for the help!...
  12. Re: Beating myself up - I am my worst critic...

    Thanks for the replies. I've done a lot of research about what I want to supplement him with and I'm leaning towards Baby's Only Organic Toddler Formula. I've also done some research into oat milk...

    Infant formula vs. Toddler formula

    OK what is the difference here, folks? I need to choose a formula to supplement my BM for daycare. I've done some research and I'm leaning towards Baby's Only Organic Toddler Formula - Dairy Based;...
  14. Beating myself up - I am my worst critic...

    I have come to the conclusion that I need to start sending some supplemental formula to daycare. I just can't keep up with pumping - and I hate it! I usually only get a chance to pump once a day,...

    Re: How do you do it? *vent*

    Hang in there! I didn't read through all the replies but I can say from experience that it gets better. I went back to work after only 8 weeks and he does great at daycare but he didn't spend a lot...

    Re: How do I know if it's thrush?

    We went through thrush a while back and it didn't seem to bother him at all. Me on the other hand... I was in pain! My nipples didn't really itch - they burned! He would latch on and I would jump...

    I know how you feel! Allen bit me for the first time tonight - first two times actually. He unlatched and was pinching my nipple with his fingers then he leaned in to latch back on ( or so I...

    I'm right there with you! Allen is about the same age - how odd is that? I love breastfeeding - I hate pumping. I know I am doing it for the best reason and that's what keeps me going. I like the...

    So it's not just me! Whew! I'll just wait for the second let down and pump a few minutes after it stops. And as I type this I hear more milk.. and there it goes again! This is just strange - but...

    Wierd let down while pumping?

    Ok, I'm a little confused about my let down. I don't notice my let down reflex at all. I know it's happening but I don't feel it. Now that I'm back at work and pumping I can watch my milk let down...

    I figured out what the problem was and it wasn't our latch at all. It's thrush! I just noticed some white puffy stuff on his lips the other day and my right nipple burns now. Of course, now the...

    Re: Change in Latch - only on right breast?

    I will go back to the basics and make him re-latch if it's not right. It's funny, I seem to be a "left boob" lady; it's just easier to position him and nurse that side. I can't give up on the right...

    Change in Latch - only on right breast?

    Allen is just over 3 weeks old and he's very good at latching on. However, just recently his latch on my right breast seems to have changed. It's OK for the first few minutes then my nipple starts...
