    Re: Blisters?

    I had them and my LC called them blebs. I had never heard of them. It was caused from the friction/rubbing of the flanges. Warm wash clothe did soothe it but time just was the cure. Good luck!

    Here are some helpful hints:
    • As my DD got older and more awake, I would put my DD in her bouncer or swing and use my foot to rock her while I pumped.
    • I would put my DD in her jumperoo while I...

    Re: Getting to much milk

    At four weeks, I was having the same amount and I had to contend with blocked ducts and potential mastitis. Be careful with your pumping schedule. See a LC if you are having problems. I did and she...

    I use only Dr.Brown's and learned that there is a P,1,2, or 3 nipple. The Preemie P is slowest flow and I used it from birth to about 3 months. Then I switched to the level 1 nipple. Now my DD is one...

    Re: Which pump

    My sister has the Medela Free Style and she loved it. I tried it and it just was too much to do to get it going. I didn't want to be "attached" to a bra and a machine even though it meant my hands...

    2) 10:30 a.m.
    3) 4:00 pm.
    4) 10:30 p.m
