    Re: Pumping only first time mom

    I have been exclusively pumping since DD was 9 weeks old - she is now 9.75 months old! I never thought I could make it this long, but time just seems to fly by and before you know, you've made it to...

    Re: Exclusive pumpers....

    It was almost immediately after DD caught on to solids (i.e when the cereal was thicker). I noticed she would sleep longer for her morning nap and when I tried to feed her when she normally would...

    Re: What could be causing this?

    Sounds like it could be thrush. With mastitis, after nursing and pumping your breast will usually feel better ... with thrush, it won't. If your nipple is still hurting 30sec or so after latching,...

    Re: Exclusive pumpers....

    I've been ep'ing since DD was 9.5 weeks old - she is now 33 weeks old (so, over 5 months). I have yet to have an issue with keeping up to her demands. I came close when DD was 5 months old, had a...

    Re: Frequency of pumping

    DD was exclusively bf for almost 10 weeks when I switched to ep'ing (for multiple reasons). I think I'm pretty lucky that I am able to pump the amount I do and for as long as I have - it sure takes...
  6. 6.5 months and only having 18oz ebm per day?!? HELP!

    DD is 6.5 months old, started solids at 6 months, had a cold (but is over it now, has been for a few days) and has gone from 32-36oz a day of ebm down to 18-20oz. She is only eating 2tbsp oatmeal...

    Re: Frequency of pumping

    Good luck and let us know how it's going! When DD started sleeping through the night *I* would be awake for hours because I was SO used to only having a few hours sleep at a time :p It's like my body...

    Re: Frequency of pumping

    Mine do that too - but at around the 5 hour mark. My breasts have gotten used to being emptied at certain time intervals so my milk supply has adjusted to fit that - just like when DD started...

    Re: Frequency of pumping

    I ep too and DD is 6.5 months old. I pump 4 times per day and am actually trying to drop a pump soon because I have too much milk for her new demands now that she's on solids. Anyways, I pump at...

    Re: PIS vs. Advanced PIS

    I guess that would depend on how often you will use the pump and how much money you want to spend (even after the discount).

    I have never used the PIS, but since we EP, I purchased the PISA...

    Re: Problem pumping heavy breasts

    I went through the exact same situation as you! I ebf DD for 9 weeks and suffered through thrush, bleeding nipples, and mastitis (4 times) before switching to ep'ing. My DD has reflux so bf'ing made...

    Re: How long do you pump?

    It is very normal to have several let-downs while pumping ... hence the flow increase after it has slowed down. I sometimes can get 3-5 of them. In general, I pump for about 10-20 minutes to get...

    Re: How to exclusively pump- please help

    First of all, kudos to you for taking up ep'ing! We've been doing it for almost 4 months now.

    Anyways, as for the amount of times you should be pumping? The simple answer: every time your DC has...
  14. Re: Blocked duct/mastitis/supply: very long

    I just recovered from my 6th bout of mastitis - DD is only 20 weeks old! We exclusively pump so I know how much my supply is affected. This time, it took exactly a week to get my supply back to...

    How to scald BM? (stove-top)

    Ok, so after reading other posts on scalding BM, I realize that excessive lipase is the cause for the foul smell of my frozen BM. It's too bad I didn't figure this out until I had several hundred...

    Re: Pumping Foremilk Only...?

    Ditto! We pump exclusively too.
  18. Re: Exclusively pumping, mastitis, & supply drop

    Thank you both for your replies. I have always emptied the breasts and made sure I pump well beyond them stopping so I don't think that is an issue at all. However, I was really busy 2 days in a row...
  19. Re: Correct amount of expressed bm when bottle feeding?

    Our daughter is 3.5 months old and weighs 12 3/4 lbs. I'm exclusively pumping but she has 6 bottles per day of varying amounts. Her first bottle after sleeping through the night is 6 oz, the next 4...
  20. Exclusively pumping, mastitis, & supply drop

    After EBF'ing DD for 10 weeks and going through mastitis 4 times, thrush, and finally bleeding nipples, we decided to exclusively pump. We have the Medela PISA.

    We've been successfully pumping...
