    Re: Pumping chit chat 3

    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!

    I'm beginning to think that with almost...

    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. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    :hug

    Thanks, Susan - you're still my hero... Raising 4 boys, all of Gavin's health issues, EPing and still finding the time and energy to give so much to the BFing community - just AMAZING! :bow
  7. 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:

  8. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    I'm going to post this in Weaning, too, in case some other mamas have words of wisdom.

    I think I've got a few things going on here... 1 is definitely the hormones changing. I can chaulk a lot up...

    Re: Thinking about EPing

    :hug Aww, Susan - I so hear you...

    I was so ready to be done, too, I thought. Now 2 weeks later it's still killing me. But I love the extra hour and a half cuddling with Emily in the morning and...
  10. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Emily's not always loving the water bottle at night, believe me, but I'm really trying to stick with it - I hope it helps with the constipation, too.

    I'm really struggling with not pumping again...

    Re: Thinking about EPing

    OHMIGOSH - How true this is! Emily and I love each other like crazy and I know she doesn't really know what she's missing, but I DEFINITELY miss this part of nursing. Emily seems cranky and cuckoo...

    Re: Thinking about EPing

    :yikes

    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...
  13. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    I know what you mean, Susan... I used to be able to hold Emily close and give her the cuddling sensation of nursing - now she wants to sit on my lap, but facing outward holding her own bottle. :eye...
  14. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Thank you all again - but there are mamas who EP under much harder circumstances than I have! Susan is EPing for her 4th little boy (I can't imagine having 1 additional child and doing this, much...
  15. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I do feel proud, I just would have felt so much prouder if I had gotten it right (and we'd still be at it...) :happytears

    Thanks, amysmom! You've summed it up...
  16. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Thanks, Tracie - I appreciate it... :hug

    I have been thinking about that - I'm not sure if it'll make the food taste strange to her, though. Her digestion has been so awesome this entire time I...
  17. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Exactly! There were Canadian mom's there who got a WHOLE YEAR paid off from work and no one was encouraging them to keep trying to breastfeed! When Emily wasn't gaining weight, I was terrified they...
  18. 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...

    I know how you feel, mama... You and Gavin will have a special relationship no matter what!

    I'm so glad that I pumped for Emily, but I'm finding the post-pumping changes to be really...

    Re: EPing and Need HELP!

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

    With Emily I was so worried about losing my supply that I concentrated on...
  22. Re: PLEASE read if you're thinking of EPing...

    Oh, I absolutely agree! That's exactly what happened with Emily and I and when I finally listened to my instincts and tried to BF her directly, it was time to go back to work - if I had had another...

    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...
  25. Re: How do you define milk supply as being 'established'?

    That's AMAZING! I wish you a long and happy breastfeeding relationship with your little one! :cheer :happytears
