    Re: BM residue

    Yeah I use the Dr. Browns brush about once a week. I've been pumping for 8 months and have SIX sets of "trumpets". I used to just rinse them but noticed a nasty film accumulated in the corners of the...

    Re: blocked duct-help

    AMEN Lance's Mommy!

    I've made it 8 months, which is about 7 months longer than I thought I would. Last Friday I decided to start weaning the pump. It does get easier after a while. Pumping becomes...
  3. Re: Help with Let-down! I haven't been able to pump for 2 days...

    I had the same problem when I took fenugreek!! I had to stop taking it immediately because I got so engorged. Plus on top of that I ended up having less output. I think you might be on to something...

    Re: New To Pumping-help!

    Definitely get checked out by your OB for Thrush. I can't even describe how much better breastfeeding or pumping is when your nipples aren't on fire. I'm still kicking myself for not figuring it out...

    Re: New To Pumping-help!

    Hi Cookie,
    Can I ask you - did you receive antibiotics during delivery? Is there a possibility you are developing Thrush? Like you I turned to pumping exclusively due to severe nipple pain at about...

    Re: how to stop pumping

    I'm so with you. I've always pumped. Never nursed. I phased my 4 or 5 sessions a day down to 1 over about a month. I tried and tried to stay comfortable while increasing the span to about 18 hours. I...

    Re: how much when pumping?

    I've been exclusively pumping for about 8 months now. I'll assume your LO is younger than my DD. If I pump 6 times a day for 20 minutes I get about 4 to 6 ounces out of both breasts. You're doing...

    Re: Expectant mom: Does pumping work?

    Hey there! I work like a dog and still manage to pump. I went back 6 weeks pp. I had many of the same concerns about pumping as you do. My DD is fast approaching 8 months now. She never latched on so...
  10. Re: Calling all Exclusive pumpers - how long did you last?

    Hi ladies! Really interesting posts so far. I am really impressed with everyone.

    I'm almost at 8 months with EP'ing. It has not been easy that is for sure! I had thrush for 5 months and get...

    Re: anyone else out there exclusively pumping?

    I've been EPing for 6 months now. I finally beat Thrush and feel lots better about it. We are with you girl! I set "one more month" goals. Each time I feel like going to formula I say I'll give it...

    Re: anyone else out there exclusively pumping?

    Its good for much longer the colder and more consistent the temperature of the freezer is, so your milk is a-ok.

    My DD doesn't like my frozen BM as much as fresh. :shrug Anybody else have this...
  13. Re: Is it possible to go from bottle to breast at 5mos?

    Ladies,
    Thanks for all the encouragement. It is good to hear that it is possible. I've contacted my local LLL leader and she has given me tips on how to get started once my Thrush clears up. It will...
  14. Re: Is it possible to go from bottle to breast at 5mos?

    No I haven't been in contact with a LL leader. I'm looking her up now. Good idea!
  15. Re: Tips for traveling (without baby) when you are breastfeeding/pumping

    Where do you pump at the airport? I can't think of any good private places...except the bathroom...and I'd like to avoid the ATL bathrooms as much as possible!
  16. Re: Tips for traveling (without baby) when you are breastfeeding/pumping

    AWESOME advice. I can't thank you enough for sharing this. I used to travel like mad (Delta Platinum baby) and the time will come soon enough that I will have to use this info. :cry Such is life......
  17. Is it possible to go from bottle to breast at 5mos?

    We never really got the hang of bf'ing. It hurt so bad despite the help of a lactation nurse and bunches of videos and books. I gave up and pumped 100% after just 2 weeks. 5 months post delivery, I...

    Re: Stubborn Thrush?

    No! My LO isn't on any meds for thrush. I figure since her meals come from me and she must get gas from what she eats, its gotta be linked to my milk. Her poots REEK!

    Diflucan does cause stomach...

    Re: Stubborn Thrush?

    Oh yeah - and I wanted to mention that my daughter is extremely gassy too, but she does not have thrush in her mouth (I'm a 100% pumper...guess why...cause it hurt too much to nurse...stupid thrush)....

    Re: where to get grapefruit seed extract?

    I got it at whole foods. Make sure the active ingredient is CITRICIDAL. I think it was like $12? I got the small bottle by NutriBiotic. I need to go back and get the Grapefruit seed extract pills...

    I had a lactation nurse get snippy with me about not washing parts between each use. I asked her about putting them in the fridge and she thought that was super gross. I thought it would be ok....
  25. Re: When did you start offering anything besides bm?

    We started a little early (4 months 2 weeks), partly because I was excited, but mostly because dd could already sit up by herself, hold a bottle, and even get the rubber tipped spoon into her mouth...
