  2. Pumping in prepartion for return to work

    I am currently breastfeeding my second son on demand and thankfully it seems to be working well at 1 1/2 weeks! With my first, nursing never worked out so I exclusively pumped.

    My question is...

    Re: Keeping baby happy while pumping

    I usually use the excersaucer or jumperoo then put on his favorite show - Backyardigans. Occasionally, I will just leave him on the floor to play, but have to be ready to pause pumping if needed...

    Re: How often do you sanitize?

    I usually wash the attachments in hot soapy water - antibac dish detergent. Once in awhile, I will throw them in the dishwasher or sterilze, but not very often at all. The tubing gets a steam...
  5. Re: What do you think I should do? Any advice is welcomed.

    :clap For keeping at trying to BF! I gave up around 8 weeks....we were not making any progress so I just kept pumping. Anyway, EPing is manageable although the time involved and inconvenience can...

    Re: EP pumper & Frustrated on many levels.

    Way to keep at it! You have gotten lots of great suggestions. Cluster pumping might be one way to help boost your production. For the first few months, I could pump for 15 mins and be okay. Now...

    Blisters?

    I am an EPing mom. Have been for over 9 months. Well two days ago, I noticed that I have a few small blisters on one of my nipples. I guess maybe this could be from having my pump on too high...

    Re: need help

    Is it possible your pump's suction is not working well enough to empty out your breasts? I think emptying your breasts each time is key.

    It could be stress related too. I have noticed that I pump less on days where I have a big meeting, presentation, or just a lot going on. However, my production usually goes back in a day or so. ...

    Re: Temporary (2 week) session drop?

    That's a good idea! I guess it would be similar to a BF baby only nursing in the am and pm with no pumping during the day, correct? My schedule would then probably be:

    5am, 7am, 9pm, 10pm
    Does...

    Temporary (2 week) session drop?

    I will be going on a week long work trip early March. Right now my LO is 9 months and I pump 3x/day which keeps me right at pace with the 24oz he drinks each day. (We were only able to EP)

  24. Re: How much/how often when working part time

    I don't think you really need a third meal at 7 months. My son is just a few days away from 9 months and still just gets 2 meals, but I will probably add a third very soon. We actually had to limit...
