    Re: How much/where to put it?

    You are blessed with the milk waterfall! (so jealous)

    You can pump into bottles directly w/the PISA or even directly into storage bags. I've found that you can actually pump about 6oz into the...

    Re: Baby cries when I leave him

    Separation anxiety...setting in right on time for his age.

    We went through that but only for a week or two. Our daycare was good about distracting my LO. What worked for me was to get to daycare...

    Re: Butter?

    If you're just starting solids, I would strongly suggest you hold off on butter. You need to let your LO try the foods as they are to make sure that there are no allergies to the solid food. If you...
  5. Re: What's cereal supposed to look like?

    Cereal s/b kind of soupy to start. My ped recommended 1T cereal + 1oz BM. You'll find that if your LO takes a little while to eat, the cereal will thin out even more if you use BM to make it...

    Re: not pooping

    2 wks...wow. My LO can go a few days w/o pooping but 2 wks is a long while. Are you doing cereal w/the solid foods? Maybe cut the cereal for a few days b/c that can cause blockage. My Dr also...

    Re: bottle schedule

    Feeding time is start to start. If you LO eats every 2 hours, there's nothing wrong with that. Is your LO draining the bottles? You should always try to have at least 1/2-1oz extra in your bottles...

    Re: Where do you pump and what do you do?

    Our office has a 'respite room' for nursing mothers/personal use. Very nice w/a sofa, phone, network access, clock, solid door w/a lock (we are very fortunate to have this!)

    I usually bring...

  11. Re: Other vitamins with your prenatal vitamin?

    I guess it depends on what other vitamins you are looking to take. Prenatals should have all that you need in them + a healthy diet. If you are taking just regular vitamins, you may want to...

    Re: Running out of Milk

    I agree w/the pp. Pump, pump, pump, nurse when you can. I'm a working mom & rely on the pump to get my 5.5mo her daily EBM. When my supply goes low, I pump every 2 hrs for a few days, high speed,...

    There is another post w/the same Q. My suggestion is to provide a teething ring. Just keep it handy when your LO bites & replace your boob w/the ring. My LO is just starting to teethe & that's...

    Re: Oh, what to do?

    How often do you pump when at work? Try increasing your pump frequency to every 2 hrs if you can. Even if it's only for 10-15 min. That helped me. Your LO maybe going through a growth spurt too &...

    Re: what to do?

    Not sure how long you get for lunch but I think the standard is 45 min, maybe an hour. If it's an hour, you can pump 3x/20 min sessions. If it's 45 min, see if you can do the 3x/20 min sessions &...
