    Re: Wierd let down while pumping?

    I get that too! Strangely, the left side seems to have less quantity, but lets down for longer each time. Our bodies are amazing, aren't they?

    Re: how often to pump?

    I think it's pretty likely that your supply will increase as his needs do as long as you are still nursing some of the time.

    I can only get 1 to 2 oz. per pumping session and combine milk from...

    Re: Need Encouragement

    It is really hard! My DH suggested that I give up complaining about pumping for Lent. It sounded not too hard so I agreed, and it has been more of a challenge than I anticipated - I guess I was...

    Re: Not expressing enough milk

    Thank you for your post Beth - I'm having trouble replacing what DD eats during the day too (she's 2.5 months). This gives me hope that we can keep this up!

    BFAR and pumping

    I just wanted to introduce myself . . . I am a BFAR mother. I had my surgery about 11 years ago and my surgeon told me I would not be able to breastfeed and not to try. I read Diana West's book and...

    Re: Pumping Foremilk Only...?

    I don't know if there's a rule of thumb - I doubt it because the need for foremilk/hindmilk changes with age of baby, temperature (more hydration in warm months), etc., so the amount of hindmilk your...

    Re: Pumping Foremilk Only...?

    The millk would be usable, certainly, but it might be mostly foremilk. To see, put it in the fridge until it separates, and you can see how much fat is on top. Mine varies a lot from a small skim of...

    Re: How much milk would baby get vs. the pump?

    I've been getting 2-3 oz per pumping session and I leave 2 oz bottles at daycare. I've been surprised at how variable my daughter's needs are - sometimes 4 oz per day, sometimes 12! I'm finding that...

    Re: Thank your boss!

    I bought extra horns so I can just throw all the ones I've used into a gallon baggie and run them through the dishwasher at night!

    Re: How do I build a freezer supply?

    I was in your situation just a few weeks ago when I returned to work - it was really hard to build a freezer supply, and I still only have about 20oz, but I figure that that's 20 oz I won't have to...
