    I have a happy EBF 7 month old DD, and I've just gone back to work. Luckily, supply is not an issue and I easily pump 16oz a day in 2 sessions at work, and BF her 4 times a day on top of that...

  4. Re: Joining the ranks of working/pumping!

    Hugs and lots of milk-flowing vibes coming your way! Do you have an icky bathroom, or a little closet, or an office with glass walls, or a car?? I am VERY lucky, but it's because I'm one of the...

    So January 2nd saw me join the ranks of the brave mommies who work and pump. It was stressful because DD (now 6.5 months) has never taken a bottle, and has been learning to use a sippy cup. I have...

    How much/where to put it?

    Hi Ladies,

  7. Re: How long can I pump on PISA batteries?

    Hey thanks!
    Good tip on the rechargeables too. I have a mega pack of regular ones from Costco, but if/when they are done, I'll go that route too.

    :)

    Re: Internaional Flight

    I've got the plug-in part and I plan to use that, but I was just wondering how long I've got on battery power just in case I'm somewhere I can't plug it in (unlikely, but possible). It sounds like...
  10. How long can I pump on PISA batteries?

    Hi Ladies,
    I can't believe how many AAs this thing will take, but I was just wondering if anyone knows how much pumping time I can get for that? Hopefully I don't need to use the batteries, but I...
  11. Anyone use a sippy cup early for bottle refusal?

    For those of you who struggled with bottle refusal, how early could you get LO onto a sippy cup? I've tried (and others) all sorts of strategies and different nipples, but DD has her own ideas. The...

  13. About to start pumping - advice, please?

  15. Re: Starting bottle - as per Baby Whisperer?

    You know what, my gut said don't do it, which is why I was posting in the first place. I've had time to think it over now, and I could never do it! We're just going to persist with all the above (a...

    My lovely DD, age 3 months, is a happy exclusively BF, bottle-refusing little one like so many others. We have tried the array of nipples, situations, sippy cup, etc., on a regular basis and no...
