  1. Re: Medela Freestyle Hands-Free Breast P

    Can't help with pics but the Freestyle is about 10 pounds lighter than the PISA and easier to clean- that's why I upgraded.

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    Your PISA should come with a battery pack-- use that while you drive. You are doing great. Give yourself a chance, mama. This is new! The morning is my best time for milk production.
  3. Re: Washing pump conectors and bottles??

    Re: BLS Suggestions??

    DH made baby sized pancakes for DD-- like 50 of them one Sunday, oval-shaped and small, and we froze them. Then, I put 3 in the toaster oven on the "light" setting and they come out perfect, and...

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    You are well on your way! I had to switch bottles too in the beginning and discuss a lot with my caregiver.

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    I love the Freestyle, but I put the hard shields from the PIS on it. Those soft flanges pinched-- yowee! I found it be as good or better than the PISA with the added advantage of being about to...
  7. Re: 9.5 month old losing interest in nur

    Thanks! This weekend I realized the true importance of her normal daily routine-- frequently on weekends, in our efforts to cram all of our family time in, we think, oh, she can nap in the car, or...

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    20 oz is a lot! I work full time and pump around 12 ounces during the day and that is what I send with my daughter to daycare-- 3 4 oz. bottles. Also, it's your first day, don't panic, you will...
  9. Re: advice from full time working mamas

    Sounds like there is a trend of feeling "done" with pumping after 9 months-- good to know we are not alone.

    Re: How do-able is this?

    Can you pump right when you get to school before classes start? Maybe in your car as others have suggested? I know that you will have just nursed at 7, but for me, I produce a lot in the morning so...
  11. Re: advice from full time working mamas

    Hi mama! My baby is 9.5 months and I got pretty frustrated around the 9 month mark with pumping too. I'm determined to make it though-- only 3 more months, 90 days, 12 weeks, however you want to...
  12. Re: 9.5 month old losing interest in nur

    I would definitely not say I'm giving up offering. I have only been able to nurse her in a dark quiet room since she was about 7 months old, so that's where we do it. And she will nurse for about 3...
  13. 9.5 month old losing interest in nursing

    My daughter is 9.5 months old and weighs around 17 pounds. At her last doctor's visit a couple weeks ago the doctor said she had fallen off her curve slightly but that it was nothing to worry about...

    Re: Random BLS rambles

    No Gerber babies in this house-- last night my 9 month old (no teeth) had a roasted portobella mushroom, roasted snap peas, roasted tomatoes, and polenta for dinner. You should have seen her tear...

    Re: "Heaven forbid" freezer stash?

    I have one. In a separate freezer. I went back to work when she was 8 weeks old, but I knew when she was born that I was going to be starting a new job when my DD was about 8 months old, and that...

    Re: I think I can, I think I can . . .

    I did ask for a lock, and they said they would not give me one because they provided a pumping room. I am considering the nursing cover/sign route. There is a computer in the pumping room but it is...

    Sometimes i can, but it depends-- if i am reading something, i take it with me to the pumping room. At my old job I pumped in my office but here the doors open outward and delivery people routinely...

    Re: I think I can, I think I can . . .

    I just realized it sounded like "billable hour" was how I made money and I was more worried about that one hour than pumping. "Billable hour" is solely my law firm's measure of my productivity-- not...

    Re: thumb sucking

    My LO is 7 months old, so no longer a newborn, but I will often put her to the breast and pull her thumb out of her mouth at the same time, and she latches right on. Thumb-sucking is not necessarily...

    Can you call your doctor and ask for a note explaining that you have to pump every x hours or you risk infection or complications? That might be the most direct way to get past resistance. I have...

    You are doing great! 2 hours sounds normal for a 3 week old under any circumstances, LOL. At least IME.
