    Thanks everyone! That's exactly the info I was hoping to get--you all are the BEST! I'll just keep my pump in the truck, ready to go if needed...thank you!
    Happy Mother's Day, mamas!
  2. Re: Pump weaning only, bf'ing schedule?

    Thanks for the reply! I just wanted to check in and see if anyone had had issues with plugged ducts, etc when your breasts get "told" to increase production for a couple of days...then the next few...

    Hi!
    DD turns 1 tomorrow (!!!) and I plan to very happily wean off the pump at work and have her get cow's milk at daycare. I plan to continue bf'ing before we all leave in the morning, and 2-3x in...

    Thanks!
  5. Re: Baby won't drink milk that has been frozen?

    Oh, and just to add...if you end up scalding your milk, I also use a munchkin bottle warmer with great success. And if heating your milk in a plastic bottle doesn't sound right to you as it doesn't...

    Duration of pumping?

    Hi all,
    I've looked around a bit and not found the answer...wanted to know if there's a recommended minimum duration of pumping to "make up for" or equal the time spent nursing, so as to help...
  7. Re: Baby won't drink milk that has been frozen?

    There's also a great sticky at the top of this forum! I had this problem with DS and lost a bunch of frozen milk as a result...and my husband had a few VERY bad days with DS before we really figured...

    How to know if a breast is empty?

    Hi,
    I'm sure this question has been asked before but I can't find a thread in my search...so I'll ask here. How can you tell when a breast is "empty" and it's time to offer the other side? It seems...

    Re: Nipple blanching

    Thanks worknpump. Would you believe the left side is already feeling better? Also a good reminder that they really DO grow up so fast. Thanks for the encouragement!

    Re: Nipple blanching

    Thanks Susan! Good to hear. The left side is definitely more uncomfortable, is throughout the feeding, but I suspect some mild torticollis may be playing a role as well (was a bit of an issue with my...

    Nipple blanching

    Hi ladies!
    So DD is now 1 week old, and bf'ing IS getting better. I have less and less discomfort in general as everyone (and their respective parts) gets accustomed to new pressures, etc. The...

    Re: Slow eater...

    I remember those days! For me, DS was fast if he finished in an hour and 45 minutes!!! I used to joke that he was savoring every drop of mommy's milk. But I can definitely relate to the feeling of...

    Re: what to do about plugged ducts?

    Thanks, Charrisa7! I tried massaging and manually expressing after I read on Kellymom that I probably shouldn't just the girls stay stopped up, but only had partial success. I'll give this a try!...

    what to do about plugged ducts?

    Hi mamas,

    One more weaning question...and someone can feel free to move this to the pumping section if appropriate but I think it doesn't matter.

    I've offered several more times to DS but...
  16. Re: Pump weaning--am I doing it right?

    Thanks, Joe.s.mom...yeah, it's been 3 weeks now, which I know is not the longest nursing strike ever, but LO really seems to have no interest whatsoever when I offer so...if you're interested, you...

    Re: What am I eating.......

    When my lo was having troubles with gas, I gave up dairy, coffee, chocolate, broccoli, asparagus, and beans. He seemed better...and I slowly added things back one at a time & watched his response....

    Re: What am I doing wrong????

    I'd also add that when I was starting to pump, a number of mamas posted that it's a learned activity that takes practice--just like it did for latching on, etc. It got easier as I continued to pump....
  19. Pump weaning--am I doing it right?

    Hi mamas,

    So Luke has definitely weaned now :cry and I'm continuing with pump weaning. He's taking cow's milk fine so I've been sending that added to whatever I've pumped with him to daycare. My...

    In a mother's group I went to early on, I could swear there was a woman who had a plastic cover for her MyBreastFriend pillow (the pillow I preferred, too). I didn't have a plastic cover, though, and...

    Re: weaning effect on AF?

    Thanks mom2a...that makes sense, and I'm betting the same will hold true until I finish pump-weaning.

    The other tidbit that I'm sure is playing a role is that pre-baby I was on the pill. Now I...
  23. Re: New Mum desperately in need of help

    Congrats to you, mama!

    Ah, I can easily recall those early days of cringing every time LO wanted to bf AGAIN...:hug to you, it was somewhere around 8 weeks before I didn't feel at least a little...

    weaning effect on AF?

    Good morning mamas,

    Quick question--I've now had my period 3x since LO appeared (gosh, it was a nice break there!) so I know I'm on a pretty regular 28 day cycle. However this most recent period...
