  1. Re: Is this normal? Increased sessions?

    :shrug

    Thanks for the quick reply! :D

    No, she didn't do this before on weekends. Even when we took a week off for Spring Break and went on vacation, she'd nurse at naps but then would still...
  2. Is this normal? Increased sessions?

    I suspect I know the answer to this but wanted to put it out there in case anyone else also went through the same thing. Our DD is almost 21 mos and is not showing any signs of weaning. A couple of...
  3. Re: Not enough pumped but too soon to wean...

    Here's a quick update:

    I spent the following weekend nursing non-stop, offering every 30 minutes or so. Kind of put a crimp in my productivity... :lol

    My volume has not increased so I'm...
  4. Not enough pumped but too soon to wean...

    OMG, I'm so not a novice at this but I am completely stressed about what is happening to my supply...

    Here's the scenario:
    - I work full time, plus commute both ways while DD (8 mos) is in...

    Re: Clogged milk duct?

    I'm reviving an old threat... ::rolleyes:

    Has anyone heard what the dosing on the evening primrose oil should be? Should it be in combination with lecithin or instead of?

    I have had recurring...

    Re: Pinching, scratching and pulling

    Just wanted you to know that K is doing that also. She'll grab, scratch, pinch, pull, push, all while holding onto to my nipple and continuing to nurse. She's 7-1/2 mos now so I've been laying her...

    Re: Lesithin: Blebs vs. Lipase?

    (bump)

    Also, just read that lecithin might increase succeptibility to ppd symptoms so I need to avoid that as I'm already taking Zoloft.

    Unless both lecithin and Zoloft together are better than...

    Lesithin: Blebs vs. Lipase?

    Hi Mamas - Has anyone had a combination of blebs and a noticable lipase level? I am working and pumping for my baby girl's daycare. I get milk blisters (blebs) periodically and they are most...
  10. Re: 15 weeks pregnant and overwhelmed

    If you want to breastfeed your baby, there are many resources out there that can help you with basic information and support. The most accessible are your local LLL meetings. There will be other...

    Re: Evening out the volume?

    Thank you for the replies, mamas!

    My work schedule is 7:30 - 4:30 so we wake K up at 6 and we leave the house to get to daycare at 6:30 and I have a 20 mile commute in the big city. I get to work...

    Evening out the volume?

    Hi Mamas! I have returned to work as of a couple of weeks ago. I am pumping 3 times a day at 9, 12, and 3 (or close to those times if something comes up at work) and find that my supply is really...
  14. Re: Medela Softfit sheilds vs the regular personal fit?

    Like a PP, I like the Softfit shields that came with my Freestyle more than the hard ones that came with my original PIS 10 years ago. :yikes The "peeling" did take a little getting used to but I...
  15. Re: Pump for slow let down and cruddy supply??

    Another thing to try is to call Medela customer service and ask them if there's a way to adjust the settings on the Symphony to help with let-down. I've called them many times to answer my questions...
  16. Re: Pump for slow let down and cruddy supply??

    How old is your baby? Do you have your little one near you when you pump? If not, stay calm when you pump and have something that is theirs for you to look at and smell while you're pumping. The...
  17. Re: Pump for slow let down and cruddy supply??

    How did it go? Did you try anything different?

    Re: Rejecting Bottle

    My DD is also rejecting all the bottles we've tried with the Newborn/slow nipples and it's worrysome because I go back to work in 2 weeks. :cry We'll be trying the cheapie Gerbers with the Medium...
  19. Re: Medela freestyle & pumping questions

    I'm also pumping almost at every feeding while DD nurses on the other side. And, we're now struggling to get her to take a bottle - any bottle - at 2 months. I'd say go ahead and offer a bottle in...

    Re: She won't take a bottle...

    Thanks for the suggestions and words of encouragement, Mamas! We're going to try again tonight after DH gets home from work. I've got 2 bottles with about 1/2 oz each. Hopefully, one of them...
  21. Re: Pump for slow let down and cruddy supply??

    Can you try massaging your breasts with your hands before you pump? What about a warm compress? Those might help also... Are you drinking enough? I know that I usually forget to drink and then my...

    (bump)

    Today, I nursed DD and then introduced a Medela bottle with just water to her. I put it to her lips and she didn't do anything with it. I put it in her mouth and she could taste the water...

    She won't take a bottle...

    Help - We can't get DD to take a bottle... We've tried the Breastflow, Avent, Medela, Gerber (basic). She fusses and doesn't want anything to do with it. As suggested, DH has been offering the...
  25. Re: Best bottles for breastfed babies?

    I originally bought the Breastflow bottles but haven't been able to get my DD to take it. Now, we're trying the Avent but she's not too keen on it either. We'll try both again tomorrow since my...
