    Re: I Think it's time

    One of my twins had a rough start to breastfeeding due to a NICU stay and she would freak out at the breast when I tried to nurse her (not to mention she wouldn't really latch on for even a short...
  2. Re: Going away for a week- Do I need to wean?

    Is there any way that you can take him (and maybe your mom for childcare purposes) along with you on the trip? That would probably be the easiest option on all of you, but it may not be an option.

  3. Re: LO will not transition to cows milk

    I started supplementing with milk about a month ago because my twins seemed interested after I became pregnant (and I'm pretty sure I had a drop in supply). One of my daughter's has had a dairy...
  4. Re: When did you start "don't offer don't refuse"?

    I was worried about TTC while nursing my twins not too long ago. I was on the minipill until they were about 13 months old and hadn't had a period (although my OB had told me that I would likely get...

    Re: What's the deal with MY weight?

    I was overweight when I became pregnant with my twins and have lost 50 lbs post partum (gained about 40). So I do weigh less than I did before being pregnant, but I'm still chubby and would like to...

    Poll: Re: Avent vs. Medela?

    You don't need to start solids with rice cereal. I actually found that all of those cereals just constipated my daughters and ended up giving the avocado, banana and pears as their first foods which...

    Re: Using freezer stash

    I don't know why I never thought to freeze Friday's milk and use the oldest frozen milk on Monday. Good tip.

    Blonka--I had pretty much the same size freezer stash as you (well it was twice as much...

    Re: Question about renting a pump

    I am renting mine from the pharmacy of a local grocery store, which is about the cheapest in my area. The Medela Symphony is $60 a month. The Ameda pump was a little cheaper, but I have a Medela PIS,...
  10. Re: So I rented a Symphony and other questions

    I pay $60 a month for mine. Rental fees can vary greatly, so you may want to call around for prices.

    I switched from a Pump in Style Original to a Symphony and had quicker let downs and better...

    Re: My twins are two years old!

    You have done a fantastic job! It must have been incredibly difficult to continue nursing while shuttling kids back and forth and I admire your dedication in doing so.

    It is very hard to not have...

    Re: Stop pumping at work?

    I've also gone through the idea of weaning from the pump. When my twins were 10 months old, I really had a big drop in supply. I ended up renting a hospital grade pump (Medela Symphony) and that has...

    I love this video. I also wish that they would start a campaign like this here.

    I love the song too. Just beautiful all around!

    Re: Milk Seperation in fridge

    I didn't know that you shouldn`t shake milk either. I've done it a few times to get the fattier milk off the sides of the bottle, but won't do it again. Interesting.

    Re: Pump through Insurance

    It depends on your insurance. My insurance would only cover the Medela Pump in Style original--no rentals--no Pump in Style Advance. Also, it seemed that they would only accept certain codes for the...

    I think that Robin's daughter's reaction is pretty typical with babies separated from their moms. I remember when my sister left my nephew with us for 5 days when he was 16 months old he seemed angry...

    Re: milk supply question

    Your little one is so young that I would guess that your supply is still fluctuating. I believe that most sources say that your supply takes around 3 months to establish and stabilize.

    I have a Medela Pump in Style and I am renting a Medela Symphony. I like both. The reason I have used both is because in different situations you need a different kind of pump.

    I had problems getting a let down. From my desperate searches on the topic, here is what I have found:

    -Being too tired or stressed when you pump can inhibit letdown.

    Re: Pumping & Milk output

    Check on how much fenugreek you can take with a lactation consultant or LLL leader. My La Leche League leader told me that I can take up to 9 of the kind that I bought. It did make a difference. I've...
  25. Re: how to pump supply for freezer?

    Everyone has good ideas. Another idea is to try to pump at 2 or 3 in the morning, although I know it is really hard to get up then if you aren't already up. That is when your supply is supposed to be...
