    Re: making rice cereal at home

    Molly is on a prescription vitamin with flouride. I will have to check the iron content and talk to my pediatrician. I guess I'd like to limit her boxed/processed foods as much as possible. Even...

    feeling sad

    My LO is 6.5 mos and I'm starting to let myself dry up. BF has been a very rocky, tear-filled road for me and I struggled to get to this point. For that I feel very proud! On the other hand, there...

    Re: Anyone else feel sad...

    I thought I would feel that way but once we started and I saw how much she enjoyed eating solid food I felt happier. I liked seeing her mature and take another step in development.

    Re: introducing rice cereal

    I think you need to watch your baby and take cues from him/her. We started her b/c she had a wicked flu that caused her to refuse to nurse/drink from a bottle but she loved the cereal mixed with...

    Re: refusing all liquids--long

    I like the fruit suggestion. I have not tried anything other than squash and then sweet potatoes today. I've also thinned her cereal a lot and she doesn't love it like that but I kind of don't...

    refusing all liquids--long

    I really don't know where else to go. My dd is 6 months old. She's never been a great nurser/eater and we've struggled from day 1. At 5 months old I switched to pumping and bottlefeeding EBM. She...

    Re: maintaining supply after increasing

    Yup, I've tried it all. She's never been a good eater and it's been a struggle from day 1. I have the potential to make enough milk but she loses interest quickly and once the milk slows, even with...

    Re: Not getting much when pumping

    ok I have one more suggestion. Are you using the correct size breast shield? You might want to try going up (or down) a size or two. That can make a difference. Medela has a video on their website...

    Re: Not getting much when pumping

    you can try "power pumping" too. You pump 10 minutes, rest 10, pump 10, rest 10 and do that for an hour at the same time every day and you should notice an increase in a week (at least that's what...

    Re: Not getting much when pumping

    I found I got the most when I pumped in the middle of the night. I'd get up and pump even if my LO didn't wake up to eat.

    I know it's frustrating though.

    I've always struggled to have an adequate milk supply. Every time I get it up and we're nursing up a storm it drops again and we're back to supplementing (with EBM) after nursing. It seems like if...

    my baby (5 months) acts like that too but I see it get worse when my supply is down. She will only stay very focused and suck well if I'm very full. Right now I'm not so we're going through the same...

    The battery pack works great on the PISA too. I used it driving down from NJ to NC, if you can't plug in anywhere. You need 10 AA batteries though.
