    Re: Can I use this milk?

    I don't think it did. I commonly have a problem with milk backing into the tubing but don't think any did so far.

    It's funny, I have every other spare part along with some collection bags, etc,...

    Can I use this milk?

    So I was a little tired last night and left my bottles in the sink to soak, not remembering that I had thrown my tubing in the sink also. Oops.

    Got to work this morning and went to pump, and,...

    Re: Suction level on pump?

    Sometimes I find it's actually more effective to dial it back a bit on mine.

    But if nothing else has changed and you're getting sore - you may want to double check flange fit. My size changed...

    Removing Faceplate on PISA?

    Anybody know how to do this?

    I need to take a look under the faceplate because I suspect a problem. When the pump is on the faceplate is moving a bit, and I'm hearing hissing, like air escaping. ...

    Re: Manual pump issues

    The only time I get anywhere with a manual is if I use it while baby is nursing on the other side. :/

    If you cannot afford an electric, it might be worth checking with your insurance company -...

    bottle strike part II

    OK, to recap: my guy has started not wanting his bottles at daycare. He'll take maybe half of one, then refuse the rest. He also won't take bottles at all from SO or SIL when they're watching him. ...
  7. Re: Feeling overwhelmed. lots of questions. LONG, SORRY

    I'm not sure why so many people make a big deal out of babies sleeping through the night. It's not necessarily biologically normal :) Plus, babies who are breastfed often are more likely to have...
  8. Re: 9 month old on strike... but...

    I could maybe add one by trying to nurse when I pick him up before we go home. I might try that tonight actually.

    I'm also experimenting with cups - his teacher told me last night that he was...
  9. 9 month old on strike... but...

    So this is a sorta odd one - most of my questions are answered by reading online, and I found a lot of information about nursing strikes in this age group. So I was prepared for that.

    But that's...

    Extending Time in Daycare

    Not sure WHERE to put this (the nursing 3-12 month olds? introducing solids?) but this seems like an appropriate place so here goes!

    I need some ideas/help figuring out what to send to daycare...
  11. Re: Not storing enough for return to work

    For what it's worth, I went back to work with probably about 40 oz in the freezer, and only used about 20 of it. Pumping when you are away from the baby is a whole other ball game. I think you'll...
  12. Re: Supply or teething?? Please help!

    Has he recently hit any new developmental milestones? I know that's a big reason for disturbed/messed up sleep patterns - if he's suddenly using lots more energy moving around then he might just...

    Re: Baby is a gymnast at the breast

    Mine does yoga. We side lie a lot because he focuses better that way, but lately he's taken to doing the downward-facing-dog while nursing. I really need to get a picture.
  15. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    It's not just where you are - there's lots of conflicting information here too. And doctors that say they're pro-breastfeeding but give pretty horrible advice about it. There's a couple books here...

    Re: Baby sleeps in crib and I feel bad

    Ditto. This is what we do, and it works very nicely for us. LO actually likes his crib and when he's very sleepy asks to be put there (or at least, gestures towards it). It's a little more tiring...
  17. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    whoa, four times a day? Eek!

    My 8 month old nurses five times (7 AM, 6:30 PM, 8:30 Pm, twice overnight) a day plus four bottles while I'm at work (4 oz. each). But for me I really want to nurse...

    Re: ugh. venting.

    It's something to consider. We'd have to change up the daycare routine again. It's really important to the SO that our son is at daycare for as little time possible - I've extended that just...

    Re: Pumping question

    Do they have anywhere else you can use? Depending on the size of your company they may be legally obligated to provide you with a private spot that is not a bathroom. (and nationally speaking, the...

    Re: Milk Supply LOW!

    You'll want to change out the membranes at least - they're the flimsiest part of the equation so they need replacing most often. The first time I replaced mine it surprised me the change in suction!...

    Re: Milk Supply LOW!

    Hi mama :)

    FYI, there is a whole subforum here just about low milk supply - seems to be a pretty common worry - so you might want to go read some of the threads there, I got lots of helpful...
  22. Re: Only getting 1-2 oz each time I pump. Should I just stop

    For what it's worth, I get the bulk of mine in the first 4-5 minutes, but go about twenty minutes usually, which eventually gets me one or two more small letdowns. Not much, but every bit helps! If...

    Re: ugh. venting.

    hahah!

    Are we at the same agency? LOL

    The nurse in the health office says in her decade of working here I'm the first person to ever have a problem with it, if that tells you anything.
