    Re: I need solids help???????

    Yes, always parked, not while moving. I'd do it when DH runs into the store. One time I had to pull off the freeway and do it in the McDonalds parking lot. :lol The glass in the back is tinted so I...

    Re: Stop pumping at work

    I just stopped pumping this week. My output has been going down though. I used to pump 2x/day and get 5-6 oz then down to 1x per day to get 3oz. Just didn't feel like it's worth the trouble so I...

    Re: How much is she getting bf?

    Thanks. I've seen these pages. Kellymom says on average baby gets 25 oz a day of bm from nursing, so about 3oz per feeding if nurse 8 times a day, which I am guessing is pretty close. I think for...

    How much is she getting bf?

    I remember someone sending a link to kellymom some time ago that answers the question- how much bm does the baby get each time they nurse. I tried to find it in kellymom but have not had any luck.

    Do I need a new pump?

    I use the Avent ISIS manual pump. For the most part it is a great pump but I notice after about 6 weeks I just can't seem to pump as much and it squeaks. I have already replaced the "cup" thing once....

  11. Help! My baby won't take the bottle!

    My 6 mo. LO never had a problem with a bottle, whether it'd be EBM or formula. But the last few days she has fought and cried at a bottle coming near her. It would take an hour to get her to drink....

    How much solids for 6 month old?

    She started solids about 3 weeks ago. I know the bulk of her food is still BM/formula. Right now I give her half jar per day (approx 3 teaspoons) and she is fed once. I am sure she can eat more if I...
  13. Re: Which is yields more milk - Longer or more often?

    For me, I get more when I pump less frequently. I get the same total amount of milk if I pump once later in the afternoon than if I pump at lunchtime and late afternoon (twice).

  17. Pumping not keeping up with baby's demand

    My 5.5 month old is now drinking 6 oz per feeding, either formula or BM, it doesn't matter. Problem is, I *struggled* just to get 5 oz before after TWO pumping sessions, and now can get about 4 oz....

    Re: Pumping issues

    I sympathize with your situation. But I think getting your LO to latch and nurse is the key to bringing your supply back up. No pump can match the baby as far as extracting milk. I have a Medela PIS...

    Re: Poop!

    yep, I do think formula will makes him poop less (and green!) :yikes My LO was pooping every other day when she got 2 bottles/day and now she's pooping 5x a day with one bottle a day. Go figure!

    Re: Vitamins for me

    I take OTC Target brand multivitamins. I don't know if they are inferior to say, Centrum, but my LO is growing like a champ. I also take calcium and extra vitamin C. The baby also takes Trivisol.
