    Re: To Boob or Not to Boob?

    There are nice bags now that don't necessarily look like a "pump bag". I carry a "lunch bag cooler" and carry my milk in there so everyone just thinks I am carrying my lunch around. You just need...

    Re: hospital grade vs Medela PIS

    No it is a one phase. Ameda does make one but I caught this PIS at a deal and was trying to save money. I could rent a hospital grade one but I would hate to carry that thing around. Like a pp...

    I had the same problem when I first froze some milk. I had made the mistake, as pp said, of putting my milk near the wall of the freezer. Of course the self defrosting cycle did it in. To me it...

    Re: Confused about storage guideline

    I am so glad that you found a good resource for alcohol and BF. SO many women think they can't have a glass of wine or one drink. I am glad there are resources out there that show you can still...
  11. Re: Just back to work and need pumping basics!!!

    The best thing to do is pump when he could eat. If you see that may not be enough some women have to pump late night and early moning in order to get enough for their LO. Remember to that a baby is...
  12. Re: Please help! Baby is so upset after every feeding!!

    My DD has reflux and one of the key factors for my ped was that she "bows" her back. They do especially after they eat and then you lay them down, notice if your baby does that. As others have said...

    Re: Thawing but diff question

    I have heard pretty much what the pp said. No more than 3 hours but I agree with the 2 hour and 3 if you have to stretch it.

    Re: Pumping Newbie ... please help!

    Re: keeping up with my 3mo old

    I don't know a nursing floor that doesn't get interesting at one point or another. But keep it up and try to pump at home if you get the chance. That way you can have a stash if you need it.
