    I know just what you mean! Now that the summer's in full swing, we're taking walks together and planning all sorts of adventures. I really really miss giving Emily my milk (and her tummy misses it,...

    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    :hug Susan... I hear yolu about the 2 hrs for 3 oz. - that's what I was getting at 19.5 months... Dom works, no doubt about it. You'll definitely have to add more pumps in if you use it - every 4-5...

    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    Aww, that sucks. Not for them, of course, but for you... Will you try to sub something for the milk - he was getting quite a bit overnight, right?

    I have to say, I've been really impressed with...
  4. Re: How do you redefine yourself as a mama after weaning?

    Thank you all so much for your kind words - I truly appreciate you sharing your experiences with me. Being a first-time mama can be so lonely sometimes!

    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    :hug Susan! It was so hard for me to give up, even when I was down to a total of 3-4 ounces per day. When the freezer stash was going and eventually gone, I always made sure her settling down to...
  6. How do you redefine yourself as a mama after weaning?

    So, I EP'd for 20 months and stopped about 2 weeks ago. I had some thoughts afterward that can be found here:

    Oh, mama, I really feel for you. Please look at my posts and Susan's (aprilsmagic) about the whole experience. I don't want to minimize what your'e going through and unfortunately I have...
  8. Re: How much EBM for a 14 month old?

    Emily sponataneously decided to stop bottles at day care when she was around 14 months old. Before that she was taking 2 4-oz. bottles during the day. I kept sending them for a few weeks, but she...

    :ita I absolutely agree with the other mamas - if there is any way to get your baby back to the breast, please try!!

    Yikes, that's a scary experience. I'm done with my last trip with my pump now, thankfully. I was always so afraid they would make me dump my milk, would take my Medela freezer pack or some other...

    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    Oh, gosh - most moms do that at about 1 year. I know my daughter day-weaned herself from bottles at about 14 months, so if I was only pumping at work, that's when I would have started pump weaning. ...

    Oh, yeah... I don't know if it's "end of the road" blues, or just the insane amount I have to pump AFTER Emily goes to bed at night (50 minutes to get MAYBE 4-6 ounces out), but it's bugging me more...
  19. Re: How do you define milk supply as being 'established'?

  23. Re: Back to work meeting with supervisor

    I don't have any advice for negotiating the pumping at work - I had my own office and they happily put a lock on the door so I could stay productive while pumping.
