    Re: Another question...NEED HELP ASAP

    Thank you all for posting. The pain isn't as intense now, so I think I'll avoid taking any pain medication unless it gets worse again. Also, I am going to pump first, that way if I have to take the...

    I just had some dental work done, and I am in excruciating pain. The dentist gave me a prescription for oxycodone, but I don't know if I can take it. DS is asleep for the night, but I have to pump at...

    Re: A bit worried ...

    Thank you all, so much! Your responses make me feel much better. I think I will see if I can get a weight check. His next check up isn't until 6 months (9/27). It would be nice to know.

    More Milk Plus

    Has anyone tried this? I tried it for about four days and it worked wonderfully--until it became apparent that my ds DID NOT like it at all. It seemed to give him horrible, painful gas. I was...

    Frozen v. freshly expressed

    Can I mix frozen milk with freshly expressed milk? Or is that a no-no?

    Thanks!

    Re: Not pumping enough

    A combination of Mother's Milk tea and Fenugreek did help me, but mostly it was committing to a strict pumping schedule that has helped the most. As long as I pump three times at work and once at...

    Re: Not pumping enough

    Well, despite my panic, things seem to be going well. I have been sending 4-4 oz bottles to day care, and there is usually one left over, unless he has to stay there late. This means that I can...

    Re: Not pumping enough

    Well, that's just it. I am using a Medela Symphony that I rent from the hospital. I don't know if I can get any better than that! I am looking to buy a Medela Pump In Style Advanced, though. I...

    Re: Not pumping enough

    Thank you! I agree, but would like to save the money I am spending on formula. We are on a very tight budget. However, I will do whatever is necessary for the health of my baby.

    I had no idea!...

    Re: Not pumping enough

    Really? What about all the people who say they can pump 8-10 ounces? I have seen people post that they have pumped 32-37 oz per day! Also, If ds is eating 15 to 20 oz in formula during the hours...

    I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered--I already posted this on the infants section, and someone suggested I post it here (I didn't realize this board existed!).

    How much should I be producing?

    A bit of background. I was unable to BF for the first 2 days of my ds's life because he was in the NICU, then they gave him formula--I pumped the whole time. We started BFing when we came home...

    Re: Extra extra long feeding

    Wow. Now I wonder if I'm in trouble. My ds has never fed longer than 30 minutes, and that's when he is sleeping half the time, too. Am I doing something wrong? I haven't had any significant...

    Re: Eye Contact

    Rebecca,

    After reading your post I cried for a while. I love the suggestion that the little ones can still see angels. My mother died on February 2nd of this year, and my ds was born March 25th....
