    Re: Which Manual Pump?

    The Whittlestone Manual is quite quiet, but I find that I get a bit less with it than using my Pump In Style Advance (2006 model). Hard or easy to use? Well, nothing beats an electric pump, but it...

    Re: How to exclusively pump- please help

    Uh oh, so is my baby too fat? He's two and a half months (3 months on June 14) and currently 15lbs. The doctor says he's fine, but I may worry a little. The public nurses also say he's okay. ...

    Again, no idea about the sour milk thing as I still haven't had that problem yet. My son is currently 10 weeks old and he's been super healthy since birth. And I add fresh to refrigerated without...

    Really? I've never had my milk turn sour, ever. And I add freshly expressed to cold, cold refrigerated milk all the time. Interesting...However, I did hear that if the milk goes sour, you can try...

    Re: Pumping Frequency

    Pump 4-5x per day & once during night. Start off pumping for a minimum of 10 minutes & then work your way up from there, really the idea is stimulation at this point. Once your supply is in &...

    Re: Gerber pump--does it work?

    Re: How to exclusively pump- please help

    You may want to try the Medela PISA, I have it. It works very well and expresses better & faster than a manual pump. However, at 8lbs portability is a bit difficult if you're frail. It does have...

    Re: pumping and storing during a day

    You can add fresh breast milk to refrigerated/frozen breast milk as long as it is all collected within a twenty-four hour period from the start of the first collection. Good luck!

    Re: Avent Isis IQ

    If I haven't already mentioned this, I have the Medela PISA and it works great. Although I do find it a bit on the heavy end. What is the total weight of the entire IQ Duo set? Thanks!

    Re: Feed every 2 hours?

    I think your cause for concern (in the weight department) is that you do not understand the percentile concept. If you're son was in the 90th percentile, it means that out of 100 boys, he is...

    Re: Which Manual Pump?

    I forgot to mention that I really do not recommend the Medela Spring Pump at all, it's one that you have to hold with one hand and push in with the other. Gave me carpal tunnel syndrome.

    Re: Not pumping enough

    I keep trying to give him breast, but he doesn't want it. So, he's just taking the bottle right now. He can't live off of my supply alone, because he's taking like 30 oz in a sitting, about 3-4...

    I'm pretty sure your problem is that you need a different size shield - a smaller one. But, if memory serves me correct, Avent doesn't make that. You may want to switch to one of the other brands...
