    Re: Twins are here!

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I just saw this.

    I was in a unique situation because, not only have I never been pregnant, but I could not take the drugs to induce lactation because of my heart...

    Re: Twins are here!

    I came do a decision. The LC told me I had to pump every time the babies eat and take the herbs (even though I told her I had heart palpitations before) in order to build up my supply. It became...

    Re: Twins are here!

    I have one, and I've sort of tried... But haven't been successful at getting the tube and my nipple into their mouths at the same time. :shrug

    Re: Twins are here!

    Not so great. :cry My daughter will occasionally eat from me, but my son pretty much refuses it 98% of the time. Rather than get us all crying, I give in and give a bottle. He had his tongue tie...

    Twins are here!

    My twins via surrogacy came into the world on 6/8/09. My daughter was able to latch on soon after birth, which thrilled me beyond belief.

    Unfortunately, my son broke his arm on the way out, so...

    Re: Progress report and question

    I ordered a Lact-Aid yesterday and it should be here at the beginning of next week. I hope I barely use them! LOL

    Re: Progress report and question

    The problem is, the babies won't be born locally. We live 3 hours away from my surrogate. I have an LC that I'm renting my pump from, and the pediatrician has an LC that he works with, so I'm not...

    Re: Progress report and question

    Oh, my not using meds or herbs has nothing to do with wanting to be "all natural." I would take them in a heartbeat if I could. Unfortunately, my doctors won't let me take the meds because of the...

    Re: No let down?

    I just wanted to let you know that I changed my breast shield size and increased the level I used on the pump and now I'm getting more sprays (from my right breast anyway) and my production has...

    Progress report and question

    I've now been pumping for 3 months, 2 weeks, and 2 days. My twin babies via surrogacy will be born within a month. I am getting around 6 oz per day (1 full oz in a pump session, at my peak during...

    Re: No let down?

    I'm renting a Medela Symphony from a LC. But I haven't had her check my breast shield size. I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Re: No let down?

    Thank you all! I feel so much better knowing I'm not as unusual as I thought. It seems like everything I read states this let down feeling as something that ALWAYS happens and I have never seen...

    No let down?

    I am inducing lactation from scratch (no pregnancy ever, no meds, no herbs). I've been pumping for 12 weeks now. I pump every 2-4 hours. I get about 5 oz total in a 24 hour period. I have...

    Re: Storage?

    The other day I thawed my oldest milk (the one with only .25 oz in it) and checked to see if it was okay. All is good! :D Whew! That's a relief.

    I'm feeling better about the possibility that...

    Re: Storage?

    I've been pumping since January 28th, but didn't have anything to save until February 1st (and that was only .25 oz). The babies are due July 2nd, but I expect they'll probably come in June (the...

    Thanks. Some days I feel insane for even trying... It's exhausting!


    Sadly, no. I'm using my side-by-side. I've been trying to convince my husband that we could use a deep freeze, but he's...

    Re: Storage?

    This is what I've been doing. Only, I've done it about 8 times in a 24 hour period. Maybe I'm not totally poisoning my babies after all? :o


    This may be what I end up doing. Except I'm going...

    I'm attempting to induce lactation for my twins via surrogacy that are due July 2nd. Due to heart issues, I cannot take any of the meds OR herbs. So all I'm doing is pumping. I've been pumping for...

    I talked to my OB/GYN and she agreed with my GP that the dom would be too big a risk. She also felt that Reglan was a bad choice (which I agree with). However, I am...

  23. Re: Support/Advice/Shoulder to Cry on??

    Do you get a conference period? I would assume you do... Could you pump then as well? You wouldn't need to use the whole period, just part of it. That might help.

    I'll be facing the same thing...
