  1. Re: Solids and distractable babies

    We try to eat together but sometimes it's a challenge, particularly in the evenings as I tend to come home too late from work. Dad is caregiver. Even when we eat together, though, it doesn't seem to...
  2. Solids and distractable babies

    Hello there - I don't quite know what to do about my 11-month son's eating. I have a pretty bad relationship with food and so I really want to avoid creating any bad habits for him. All the books...
  3. Re: Travel and part time nursing

    Anybody? I was really wondering what it means that your milk supply is "established", as Lisa says it should be by 1 year. Does that mean that even if my supply drops while I'm away that I won't need...
  4. Re: Travel and part time nursing

    I can't thank you both enough for this advice. This has really been weighing on my mind.

    As to how long I travel for, generally 6 days (leave Sunday return Saturday, oh so family friendly) - it's...
  5. Travel and part time nursing

    I put this in the pumping section, but then thought maybe it was more a weaning issue.....

    Hi there, my son is 9 months and still mostly bfd. I have been back at work since he was 6 months,...
  6. Travel and part time nursing

    Hi there, my son is 9 months and still mostly bfd. I have been back at work since he was 6 months, pumping 2 or 3 times during the day. The pumping has been nearly enough for his needs, but my supply...
  7. Help! Decreasing output at work!

    Hi, I am using a Medela Lactina and have been pumping at work 3 times a day since the beginning of December (with 11 days off at Xmas). I used to pump about 6 oz in the morning session and about 3-4...

    Re: He won't take solids!

    Tama's Mom - we're having the same problem as you now. Twice he has tried a piece of banana (put it in his mouth himself) and then thrown up all over the place. Poor little man! So banana is out,...

    Re: He won't take solids!

    Thanks, Sue. I'm so confused, because I often read that additional iron is needed by 6 months. Then I went to a solids class where the instructor said 9 months. You say a year - I don't know what to...

    He won't take solids!

    Hi there! My DS is nearly 7 months old and has been more or less exclusively breastfed until now. We have been trying to introduce solids for the last month or so but it is not going well at all. The...
  11. Re: Back to work with 6.5 month old

    Thanks so much, LLLS! I will be using a Lactina. The only question is how to stop people from barging into my office while I'm pumping! (Tho I know I'm lucky to have one....)
  12. Re: Back to work with 6.5 month old

    Just a couple of follow up questions here:

    My husband will be looking after DS when I return to work, and I need to leave him with instructions about how to bottle feed him. I am currently bfding...
  13. Re: Back to work with 6.5 month old

    That's really helpful, Shannon, thanks so much!
  14. Back to work with 6.5 month old

    Hi, I'd really appreciate some advice on feeding my son after I go back to full time work at the end of the month (when he will be 6.5 months old). I want to continue to breastfeed him (to around 1...

    Am I depriving my baby?

    Hi there - I am trying (very sporadically) to build up a frozen stock of BM for when I return to work in six weeks. I aim to pump once a day but I generally only get to it every second day!

    Thing...

    Decreasing returns?

    I am pumping (only once a day for storage - but miss some days) with a Lactina. I have recently found that I am getting decreasing amounts. I think that I read somewhere that you can become...
  19. Re: Pumping/night feedings and increasing supply

    Kate, just to add that I got up at 3 am to pump, 3 hours after the last feeding, and I got 3.5 oz. How does that sound, bearing in mind I suppose that's when you should get most? (and it wasn't...
  20. Re: Pumping/night feedings and increasing supply

    Hi there, Kate, thanks so much again for your reply! The pumping after feeding advice is a weight off my mind as I felt awful giving him a mostly empty breast.

    On his initial weight loss, it was...
  21. Re: Pumping/night feedings and increasing supply

    His weights were as follows:

    Birth - 7lb 4oz
    4d - 6 15
    14d - 7 13
    21d - 8 3
    31d - 8 5
    39d - 8 7
  22. Pumping/night feedings and increasing supply

    SORRY THIS IS SO LONG!

    Hi, we are in trouble as my 6 week old son has put on only 5 oz in 2.5 weeks (he’s now 8 lb 8 oz) and my pediatrician has diagnosed me with low milk supply. My poor son has...
