    Re: Going back to work at a hospital

    I work in a hospital and figuring out pump times was one of the biggest stressors before returning with my first daughter. First, having supportive coworkers is very important. My coworkers always...

    Re: Thinking of weaning at 8 wks

    I also work in healthcare and understand the frustrations of finding time to pump. But I remind myself that refuse to let my coworkers and work dictate what I feed my child especially when the law...
  3. Re: How soon did you go back to work?

    I would take as much time as you can. Work runs our lives enough as is, so don't let it determine you spending this precious time with your baby. Things do start to get better around two months. If...
  4. Re: Getting Baby to take Expressed BM

    I agree that it is very weird for her to take the formula without hesitation and not your breastmilk. I agree to taste the milk and see if it tastes bad. It could be a lipase problem like mommal...

    Re: Pump help

    First, I think the Medela pump you have is the new version Medela is making for insurance companies. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the PISA you find in the store so it is cheaper for...
  6. Re: Not pumping enough for 10 month old

    I remember that I took a dip around that time as well and that was with using a symphony the whole time.

    If you think it was the pump that caused your drop, could you rent a symphony? I know it...

    Re: Freezer Stash Gone

    Get ready to hear it, but that is a huge bottle. I know every baby is different, but I can't imagine that your little one transfers that much milk during a normal nursing session. Even if you just...

    Re: Preparing to return to work

    I will tell you about my experience. First, my daughter still prefers mommy to the bottle any day (including after my 12 hr shifts). But I think a lot of this has to do with how we bottle feed her....

    Re: Breastfeeding and sleeping

    I have been where you have been. I didn't mind cosleeping, but we were waking and nursing all night and I was really exhausted. What worked for us was a combination of bedtime routine, Ferber...

    Re: What pump do you suggest?!

    I have a Freestyle and have used it with good success. Sometimes the suction can seem a little low but I notice that if you unplug the suction tubing and plug back in while holding the shields in...
  11. Re: Nurse---10 hour shift---when to pump

    I work 7a-7:30p and pump at 9am, 1pmish, and 5pmish. Sometimes I have to pump at night after the baby goes to bed or in the AM on my off days to make up if I'm short.

    I would recommend that you...

    Re: Not enough milk?

    Just keep on feeding her and don't use pacifiers. Make baby suck at the breast to help your supply. Drink LOTS of water and make sure you are eating enough. Do skin to skin with your baby in...
  13. Re: Never knew I'd be sentimental about

    I just had this exact conversation with my husband this week. I told him that I missed our daughter's old poops as you would hear her every time cause it was so loud. I even kind of miss the...

    Re: working

    I hear you as I also hate going to pump because it puts extra work on my coworkers. They don't give me any grief but I pride myself on being a hard worker. I work 12 hours shifts and am able to get...
  15. Re: What's your bottle/cleaning routine?

    I pump 3 times at work but can get away with only using 4 bottles. I pore all my milk into one bottle and then reuse the empty bottle and a new one at the second session. Repeat for 3rd session. ...

    Re: best birth control

    Personally, we are currently using condoms. I knew I wouldn't remember to take the mini-pill so that was off the table. I didn't want to use regular birth control for fear of exposure of hormones...

    Re: Pumping in the middle of the night.

    The only thing I would say about your bottle amount is to try to decrease it to say 5.75 oz one day. If he makes it the same amount of time in between bottles, good. If not, then increase it back...

    Are you referring to the medela soft fit breast shields? I use that with my simple wishes bra and have no problems. I just saw though that Medela has a shield called Comfort breast shield and have...

    Re: Pumping in the middle of the night.

    My daughter takes 3.5 oz at each bottle session and that holds her over for 3 hours. If we increased it, she was still hungry at 3 hours, but if we decreased it, she would only make it 2-2.5 hours. ...

    Re: Pumping in the middle of the night.

    6 oz is a lot at one bottle session. I would recommend smaller bottles and hopefully that will help you out. Also, could you move up your pumping session to 10:30pm and then sleep till morning. It...

    I have the Moby wrap and liked it but it was too hot in the summer to use it and now she is too big for it. We got a baby bjorn but I wish I had known about the ergo carrier. Might convince my...

    Yes, your supply will go up and down as baby dictates with his feedings. I remember when we first got my daughter sleeping through the night how full my breasts were in the morning. But it only...
