    Re: freezer stash question

    I seem to have a great supply plus a baby who isn't very hungry so my stash is too big and grows! I never need it and forget to swap out fresh for frozen to rotate through. I started with 10 oz and...

    Re: 5 year old asked to nurse

    While I think it's totally normal for a child to want to try nursing and nothing wrong with letting them, I don't think there's anything wrong with not really wanting to pursue that, either! I was...
  3. Re: When pumping breaks are complicated

    I was actually going to ask if there was somewhere outside right near the store where you could pump or breastfeed if necessary, and to make a point (weather permitting)! I feel like having to clock...

    Re: Advisse about baby nourished

    Not this time -- but I have noticed my posts re-used on occasion. I didn't realize they were trolls and thought they were quotes gone awry. I don't get it -- the internet makes no sense to me.
  5. Re: Are Chemical Peels OK while breastfeeding?

    I had a couple facials while pregnant (I had horrible breakouts) and emailed the company (Dermalogica) to ask about anything contraindicated in pregnancy. The told me what to make sure the...
  6. Re: Problem about Not responding to Hygeia Pump

    Have you tried using your Medela parts with your Hygeia pump? That's what works for me. I use Hygeia valves in the Medela flanges. If you have tried that, you may have to give some more info so we...
  7. Re: Unreasonable restrictions on pumping from HR

    I guess if you could argue that you are not being given reasonable accommodations. Depending on your state, you may be able to find language to show that. If they're making it impossible to pump,...
  8. Re: Unreasonable restrictions on pumping from HR

    How are you all supposed to know when the room is done? Wait outside the room or keep going back to check? I would bring that up as severely inconvenient. I also once threatened to pump in the...
  9. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    Just wanted to update that we started up chiropractic appointments again a few weeks ago with lots of craniosacral work. For the past week or so my little guy has nursed on the right side in a...
  10. Re: Need advice about a RESTLESS BABY...

    I don't have advice either, but my son has been the same way off and on. He's 7 months (today!) and it's been a lot less frequent lately, but some nights he tosses and turns (back to side, back to...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    Just to show how you can't make any decisions about sleep ahead of time, and all babies are different, my kids did not nurse to sleep beyond the first few months. My daughter occasionally would, but...

  13. Re: Weaned 8 months ago & there's still milk and pain

    Just a thought -- if you do see an IBCLC, see if they can recommend a doctor who specializes in breast issues near you. My IBCLC was very hesitant to give me any health advice or diagnosis (she...

    Re: Pump in style troubleshooting

    With a quick search I found this link on the Medela site:


    Someone on here said you could rent from some Babies R Us stores, but I've never heard...

    Re: Pump in style troubleshooting

    Is there a place you can rent a hospital grade pump, even for a short time? I would think that it would help to see if you have the same problem with that pump. If you're pumping right after a...
  16. Re: decreasing pumping/supplementation

    Is there a car adaptor plug for the Symphony? I'm not sure. I know the Symphony I rented had a battery pack, because I used it when out at a class once. It seems like the PISA is not working for...

    Re: Pumping at work

    I see this as resourceful, so good for you! You may just have to try to find other times, like maddieb mentions above (is during your commute possible if you have one?). I've found that a...

    Re: Are you STILL breastfeeding?

    I think we've all had these interactions. Breastfeeding has taught me so much about our culture, especially how little breastfeeding is understood or even considered a part of life. To be honest,...

    Re: back to work!

    I pump in the car -- if you have a commute it's worth it. It might save your having to get up so early to pump in the morning at least -- or you can still get up early and squeeze in an extra pump. ...
  20. Re: Exclusive pumping feeling discouraged

    Is there any way the tongue tie could be remedied at this point and possibly getting baby back to breast? Since you said he comfort nurses sometimes, there may be hope for getting him to breast. ...

    Re: back to work!

    I agree...pumping 2x is likely going to affect your supply. I am away from baby from 6:00 a.m. to around 4:00 p.m. (10 hours) and I pump 4 times, about every 2.5 hours. I see you're in VA and we...
  22. Re: Help: Baby feeds ONLY lying down!

    I don't have any advice, but I have sympathy. My son just started nursing only when lying down on the right side. I posted about it on here recently. So I have it a little easier in that he'll...
  23. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    I asked the doc to check his ears at his well visit. I think he forgot my request but checked his ears with everything else and didn't mention anything. I would think football hold would be fine for...
  24. Re: Baby refusing right breast except lying down

    Thanks for the reply! Well, he's always been less interested in the right side, and has occasionally refused it, but not every time. I don't think it's just distractedness (although that doesn't...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    I think that's a personal decision and you can discuss with your doctor. I got my son the first of his two doses of flu shot even though it's late in the season. VA has been hard-hit with the flu...
