  1. Re: 4 mo spits up lots and eats often and naps short...

    Is it possible you just have an infant who is a short napper? Mine was! I don't think her naps lengthened to anything more than 20 minutes at a stretch until she was 9 months old, and even at that...

    Re: Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    My daughter did this a ton from about 11-16 months, with some evenings taking up to an hour to finish getting all the wiggles out while nursing in our dark room. And then, it just sort of tapered...
  3. Re: Fussy baby, refusing to eat much when I am at work

    Lipase is not only an issue for frozen milk--it absolutely can be an issue with refrigerated milk, too. Depending on the mom and the severity of the issue, some moms find that their expressed milk...
  4. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    Just clarifying here--you say that you are using a hospital grade pump, but then mention that you are using the PISA for work. The Pump In Style is actually not a hospital grade pump, so if that is...
  5. Re: Worried about supply; different with different babies


    How many hours a day are you separated, mama? 5-6 oz feedings are very large, particularly so if baby is getting many of these bottles a day.

    3-4 oz over a pumping session is very normal...

    Re: Low supply help

    Also, forgive me if I'm misinterpreting, but it also sounds like you might not be pumping enough if you are exclusively pumping. Are you making it to about 8-12 pumping sessions a day? I'm guessing...

    Re: Nursing all night....help!

    I have definitely experienced upticks in night nursing for a week or so on and off throughout this last year with my now-22 month old. Hopefully you are just going through a quick developmental leap...

    Re: Cutting out a pumping session


    Definitely don't try waiting until the end of the day to accumulate! You might get a bigger bottle for a couple of days, but then you're likely to wind up with a much smaller bottle over...
  9. Re: Am I leaving enough milk for when I'm at work?

    I have always interpreted that 1-1.5 oz/hour rule as per separated hour. So if I were away from my daughter for 9 total hours, even if I'd nursed right before leaving and immediately upon returning...
  10. Re: Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    Well, if you'd like anecdotal evidence that does not support this theory, I can give you some: my 21 month old was one of the heaviest night-nurslings I have ever heard of. She spent months 7-11 of...

    Re: Nursing and sleep. !

    I do not have the same problems you are having with sidelying nursing, so nightweaning has never been a good idea in my mind because night nursing is the bringer of sleep in my household!

    Re: back to nursing?

    You are currently exclusively pumping, right?

    I hate to say this, because I know you are tired, but it does not sound like you are pumping frequently enough to me if your goal is to exclusively...
  13. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    "Snacking" is a normal way for an infant to feed, though. Generally speaking, there is no need to wait a specific amount of time in order to ensure that baby is getting a proper meal. Whatever the...
  14. Re: Nursing habits of a 16 month old?

    Yeah, I've got one of those "nurse like newborns" toddlers! My 21 month old usually wants to nurse every 30-45 minutes while she is awake and we are together. :)
  15. Re: Supply decreasing due to pumping at work?

    Have you troubleshooted your pumping at all? Tried different size flanges, different pump settings, or even a different pump? I know of many moms here who needed to rent a hospital grade pump in...
  16. Re: baby latches and unlatches over and over and over

    I think the solution to this behavior, assuming all else is otherwise normal, is typically time. Most of the breastfeeding moms I know experience pop-on-pop off behavior--myself included!

  17. Re: A six year old's thoughts on breastfeeding

    That is so adorable. Great read!
  18. Re: Nipple soreness after pumping--please help!

    Definitely true! I've actually had to utilize three different sized shields over the course of pumping at work for my one single child. I started out needing a very small size, then plumped up and...

    Re: 4.5mo chosen to bottlefeed?

    :ita with tclynx. That is a LOT of milk, mama. How long are your separations?

    One other thing to note--if you are at all concerned about your pumping supply, the last thing you want to do is...
  20. Re: Mother has hit the wall after natural weaning.

    I think you should probably look to whoever you would otherwise look to for help if you had any sort of postpartum mood disorder, in this case, if you do feel as though you are experiencing a...
  21. Re: Mother has hit the wall after natural weaning.

    It sounds far more likely that you are just coincidentally experiencing this at the same time as weaning. I would say there is a very low likelihood that the hormones in your system were keeping you...
  22. Re: Advice needed: Not pumping enough milk to save.

    0.5 oz between BOTH breasts was what I usually managed to pump in a day over and above what my daughter was drinking when I was home on my maternity leave with her. I managed to stash up two days...
  23. Re: Is baby being overfed at daycare? And what to do about i

    This was my understanding of where the 1-1.5 oz/hr rule comes from, as well. My understanding was that it is expected for babies who are feeding less frequently at night to be closer to the 1.5...

    Re: Pumping, Feeding, Supply outputs

    I would also suggest, don't "save" a side for a later feeding if baby will take both. If you get home from work and baby wants to nurse on both breasts, let him!

    I personally did four 20 minute...
  25. Re: Need encouragement while baby is sick

    Oh, mama, I'm sorry your little one is so sick! My daughter has only been ill a few times in her life, but she also developed pneumonia when she was 5 months old. It was so scary.

    I think that...
