    Re: Preparing to wean

    :ita with Mommal

    Re: Pumping more than baby drinking?

    Most babies need 1 to 1.5oz of milk per hour you are away. It sounds like he is right on track. I almost always pumped more than my LO's would take from a bottle. Unless you are having difficulties...

    A couple more questions:
    1) How many wet or poopy diapers is she having a day?

  10. Re: Baby won't take bottle! Limits my ability to work

    Re: I'm at my wits end
