    Re: going back to work and logistics

    Not sure where in NOVA you are but I rented a pump from an IBCLC in Nokesville or Catlett or somewhere in that area. It was a bit cheaper than the local hospital. If you're near there let me know...

    Re: pumping while driving?

    I think all you need is a car adapter for the pump and a cover and you should be set. I pump on my 30-minute commute to work in the mornings. Is it safe? Can't say. It feels a little distracting but...

    Re: Need help with pacifier weaning

    I always like to attribute funny thoughts to my son since he doesn't talk yet (well, "No" and "Yeah!") but I've said that when he's crying from hurting and I try to nurse him, he seems like he's...

    Re: Need help with pacifier weaning

    I don't have any tips for weaning off the pacifier, but here's how pacifier works in my family -- pretty much the same for both kids. We use it only for sleep and for major upsets. Neither of my...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    Darn -- I don't know which is worse -- the pump slump or the period (well, both, actually!)! I don't need to go back to that hassle! It took me months to get used to my Diva Cup, and now I'm sure...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    I've tried everything I can think of so far this week, and nothing is changing my output. So I guess I'll have to wait and see if my period is approaching. I'm trying to limit the amount of freezer...

    Re: dreaded pump slump

    Thank you both. Today I changed out the tube and filter on my Hygeia (I had recently changed the membranes). I'm going to try out my other pump again while working from home tomorrow and see what...

    dreaded pump slump

    I was doing so well with pumping, I was getting overly confident -- even at 9 months I was pumping more than my son needed (running out of room in our crowded freezer), so had cut down my pumps in...
  9. Re: Best Cooler Bag to Fit All Medela Equipment

    I have a couple small coolers, and I can fit all of my bottles and my shields in the bags. I think I usually fit about 4 bottles. You may just have to get more of a lunch cooler than a pumping...

    Re: Help for friend in NEPA

    She was going to contact the LLL leaders. She was on the fence about breastfeeding before birth, so I didn't want to be too pushy. She seemed to think she could continue nursing for 5 minutes and...

    Re: Help for friend in NEPA

    No -- I did call someone that I found online who was not associated with a local hospital. My friend is concerned about the cost. It's funny, I felt the same with my first, but with the second...

    Help for friend in NEPA

    My friend in the Wilkes-Barre area of PA is getting the usual supplement runaround and wants to nurse exclusively. I think the IBCLCs I found online were part of the bad advice. Anyone know a good...
  13. Re: Still nursing almost 16 mo old but starting to get comme

    Good for you. Just come on here for more support as you need it. It is amazing to see how formula-fed culture really dictates so much of what is believed about parenting in our culture. I have a...
  14. Re: Night nursing toddler - when does it get easier?

    I conceived baby #2 when my first was 22 months old. No night weaning but my period had been back for a year. I was 37. It had taken 6 months of actively trying at 34 to conceive my first and only...

    Re: Nb and side lying nursing

    It took me until my second baby to get used to side lying, but it wasn't right away when he was a newborn. It was easier once had a little bit of head control. I started out just doing one side at...
  16. Re: Working from home with newborn and toddler experience??

    I only work from home 1-2 days a week, but my husband works from home every day. I have a 3.5 year old and a 9 month old. Our schedules are not so flexible that we can work beyond business hours...
  17. Re: Still nursing almost 16 mo old but starting to get comme

    My take on this, and with many things in life, is that if my family is against it, then I am doing something right. So right on cue they started questioning why I was nursing at a year (coincided...

    But regarding your situation, my go-to line with arguments that...
  19. Re: Oh No! Pump broken at work and not sure what to do!

    I'm guessing you have a Hygeia since you mention the filter and milk in the tubes. I keep extra everything on hand which you may want to do in the future. I learned that the hard way with baby 1. I...
  20. Re: When Pumping/Daycare doesn't work

    We have hired 2 nannies from Care.com. Well, I should say 2 who worked out plus 2 who didn't. DH works from home every day and I do 1or 2 days a week so we had my daughter at home with a nanny until...
  21. Re: Seeking advice for going out with EBF infant

    Were you alone in the car with baby? With my first, DH or I would sit in the back with her on every trip. This was partially because we had 2 small cars but also to keep her company since she hated...
  22. Re: Slow weight gain... Possibly genetic?

    That sounds like great advice!! :angrypin

    My first baby was about average for her weight, off-the-charts for height. But my son is just not a very hungry guy and he's been on the lower end of...
  23. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    You can't really determine what is a good output, and it varies for me, but I can overall tell if there's a big change if output remains low for a few days. Then I would start trouble-shooting pump...
  24. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    I may be missing this answer somewhere in the posts, but did you pump frequently while you weren't nursing and were feeding formula? I know pumping is not a good indication of supply, but what is...

    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...
