    Re: how to tell if milk is bad

    I find that it's very obvious when breast milk truly spoils. It smells like vomit. It's really nasty. But like someone else said, if in doubt just taste it. If it was frozen it can taste wierd but...
  3. Re: Do I really need a big freezer stash?

    And if you find you have an outrageously large stash that you'll never use before it goes bad, you can always donate it to a NICU nearest you. That way at least you're not wasting it.

    Re: Frozen BM - 24 Hour Rule - Why?

    I've never had a problem with milk out more than 24 hrs. What I usually do is take the frozen milk out the night before and stick it into the fridge. Then the next evening it's still slush, so I set...

    Re: What kind of pump...

    I have the Medela Pump in style Advanced. It's not terribly loud, but it's not quiet either. I think the symphony is the quietest I've used so far.

    Re: holy cow.

    oh, he'll never nurse. he won't even eat by mouth. He'll be tube fed for life. So that's not an issue. I think once I do all the math and my stash gets out of hand then I will be a NICU milk donor. I...

    well each kid is different. Some kids can't tolerate more than a few ml an hour, so they have to do continuous feeds. My baby has good motility (moving stuff through), and I think he gets hungry....

    I'm a member there, :D but most use formula.

    pictures that's my last post there and it has pictures of his tube and surgery site.
  12. Re: How many oz does a 6 mo old take in a feed?

    I had already found both those calculators, the problem I had with them is that since he doesn't eat X number of times a day, he doesn't have an average amount per feeding. See what I'm saying? So...
  13. How many oz does a 6 mo old take in a feed?

    does anyone know what is average for a six month old to take in one feed? My son is tube fed, and right now we're on a continuous feed (he gets about 50ml an hour 22 hrs a day). We're trying to work...
