    so frustrated

    I'm so frustrated! It seems like I can't feed DS (10 wks) anymore myself. Since going to daycare he's been progressively getting more and more frustrated when *I* try to feed him. Last night when...

    Re: travel and milk storage question

    You should be able to keep it in a cooler on ice. Just pack it really well and perhaps add more throughout the trip.

    Good luck!

    Great start, bad finish

    My baby is 5 weeks old. He has been BFing well from birth, but the last week or so has developed an 'issue' that's very frustrating.

    He latches on well, and feeds well through the letdown (my DD...

  5. Re: O.K. to use bottle warmer to heat refrig. ebm?

    I don't see why it wouldn't be okay... it heats it up more gradually and less severely than a microwave. Maybe one of the LLLeaders will chime in, but I'd go ahead and do it!

    Pump wearing out?

    For the last two or three days, I've been unable to have an effective letdown at work while pumping (or at least as effective as it's been in the past). My DD didn't eat much this morning, and I was...

    Re: What helped you most in the early weeks?

    A nursing necklace?

    All those sound great! I had a 2x mom give me breast-care things and I didn't know how wonderful it was til I started using them.

    traveling.. need suggestions

    I'm traveling Friday on a work-related trip. DH is coming with me to take care of DD (6 mo) while I'm in meetings. I'm trying to figure out how he's going to feed her while I'm gone all day...

    Re: Not pumping enough during the day

    Can you try to pump every two hours? It might be a pain, but you might find your supply increases.

    Good luck... I'm a pumping mom too!

    Re: How Much Milk??

    I think it would depend on how much your DS is eating daily. My DD is 6 mos and feeds 5x a day (3x from me and 2x from EBM), give or take. If I were to leave her for a day I'd probably leave 5 6-oz...

    Re: pumping and storing during a day

    I think that if the milk is sour, it's bad and you should throw it away. The scalding is used if your milk routintely becomes sour... that indicates you have an excess of lipase being produced. ...

    Re: plastic storage for bm

    No, it's not a lot at all but I guess the thinking is that over time little amounts can add up, because these compounds are stored in fat and not released from the body. The colored plastics ones...

    I had this happen, and it was due to the fact that I mixed warm and cold milk together before freezing. If you're mixing milk from different pumping sessions, make sure they're at the same...

    Re: pumping and storing during a day

    Make sure, before you combine the milks, that they're the same temperature. If you add warm to the cold, it can go sour. I had this problem for a long time and wasted a lot of milk before figuring...

    Re: Milk not letting down when pumping

    I have two pumps... I rarely experience letdown with the electric one, but always do with my manual one (Avent Isis). Perhaps it's the kind of pump you're using? Maybe a change would help.

    I'm not sure if they make glass bottles or not... but you could always pump into plastic and transfer into glass. The amt of chemicals transferring in that short amount of time will be negligible. ...

    Re: Pumped milk lower in fat?

    That makes sense.

    Is there a way to feed you baby first, then pump? I usually pump one side empty, then feed the other side to DD. That way both fore and hindmilk get into the baby and the...

    I'm a toxicologist and probably have way too much knowledge for my own good... so I have been worried about this very thing. ;)

    I have found that what I pump at work is about equal to what DD eats during the day. So, I can send her with the milk I expressed the previous day with no freezing involved. This might be an option...
