  1. Re: A question about using hospital grade pump at work....

    It is great that they have a room huh? From what I could tell, it has two "stalls" with curtains, and each stall has its own pump. Plus there is a small sink and a small refridgerator right in...
  2. Re: A question about using hospital grade pump at work....

    Hmmm.....I know it's a blue pump (I peeked in the lactation room)...and that it's a medela. I hope everything fits. I know we don't sell any pump parts at work but hopefully if I need something I...
  3. A question about using hospital grade pump at work....

    Another question from pesky me.

    At work we have a hospital grade medela pump to use. I have the pump in style at home. I'm assuming I can just bring in my pumping parts (bottles/tubes etc) and...

    Re: Older hospital grade vs. new PIS

    A few thoughts come to mind....and please know I am no expert.

    1. If you know any moms who have a newer PIS and would be willing to let you try it for a session or two...that would be a great way...
  5. Re: Should I single pump or double pump at work?

    Thanks ladies. I was worried about pumping both breasts but it seems like it would be ok? So, I shouldn't worry about trying to pump around the same time the baby is getting the bottles then? And...
  6. Should I single pump or double pump at work?

    Hi all. I am going back to work this coming Friday for 20 hours per week. My daughter will be 12 weeks old. Typically, she eats one breast at a time, about every three hours during the day (give or...
  7. Re: Will my supply ever "even out"....

    Just to update...it seems my supply has gone back down again to a "regular" level for me. I didn't eat oatmeal yesterday so that must have been it ;)

    Really, I have no idea why it goes up and...
  8. Re: Will my supply ever "even out"....

    Thanks for responding M and Jessica. I don't mind pumping once a day too much...but it seems like I may have to cut it down a bit otherwise I'm not going to be comfortable at night. I hope I can do...
  9. Re: Will my supply ever "even out"....

    Thanks Jen. I am going back to work part time in less than 2 weeks. There will be 3-4 days in between my two full days of work. So, I was planning on using the extra morning pump milk to give my...
  10. Will my supply ever "even out"....

    My daughter is 10 1/2 weeks old now, and my supply always seems to be fluxuating. At the beginning she was jaundice/sleepy, so I was pumping a few times a day to keep up my supply as it seeme low....

    More bottle/nipple problems....

    For the past week my 9 week old daughter has been fussing at the bottle (we try to give one a day) A couple of days ago we switched to the Nuk nipple which actually fit on the Born Free bottle. It...
  12. Re: Is a faster flow nipple ok if that's what the baby prefers?

    Thanks for your reply :)

    It's hard to gage as I've never watched anyone eles's milk come out. But, I think my milk comes out fast-especially my left side. Sometimes when my daughter is first...
  13. Is a faster flow nipple ok if that's what the baby prefers?

    For some reason for the past two days my 2 month old has refused the bottle. (Well, refused it at first but after some crying spells was able to take a some). Tonight, after my partner got...
  14. Re: How can you tell if you have a lipase issue?

    Thanks Jessica. Any suggestions other than the medela bags I'm using. It's funny, I kept smelling the inside of the thawed bags and thinking the milk "smelled" different. But then I went and smelled...

    Re: help choosing bottle

    I recently got Born Free bottles with the stage one nipple. It seems to have a very slow flow. Of course, I'm a first time mom with an 8 week old so definitely no expert.

    I do know for sure...
  16. Re: How can you tell if you have a lipase issue?

    I figured out this morning that the refridgerated milk we gave her this past weekend was a little over a day old, not two days old as my partner had thought. But, on the plus side I just taste tested...
  17. Re: How can you tell if you have a lipase issue?

    Well, I think it tastes a little metallicy I guess. Then again, I also think it smells a litle like the Medela milk bag I stored it in. My partner said it smelled fine (too chicken to taste it,...
  18. How can you tell if you have a lipase issue?

    My baby is 8 weeks old, and although I've been pumping each morning to build up a freezer stash "just in case" and to keep up my supply, my daughter has mostly gotten all of her milk from the breast....
  19. Re: Question about pumping and working part time....

    Thanks Shannon. I was worried that the frozen stuff had the lipase issue. Although my partner gave a bottle of fresh stuff that spent two days in the fridge yesterday and my daughter seemed to take...
  20. Re: Question about pumping and working part time....

    Thanks for your replies. I have the Medela Pump in Style. Seems to be working fine so far. As I am not working every day, would it be ok to pump on a Friday, for a supply for Tuesday (and pump...
  21. Question about pumping and working part time....

    Hi all-

    I am a first time mom, and I am scheduled to go back to work in about a month, and am trying to be as prepared as I can be (are we ever?). My daughter will be three months old when I go...
