    Re: What should I tell them?

    YOu could just say that you have to pump because Clare loves her mommys milk. Simple, to the point and if you say something like its best that she have it until she is one you might make others feel...

    Re: New Mom - Want to Start Stocking Up

    I found the manual hurt more then the electric since I found it was easier to adjust the rate on the electric then trying to do it manually. I'd try to rent a hospital pump to see if you like it...

    Re: Leaving a 14 month old?

    I did two days and a night with my 14 month old and she reffused all bottles while I was gone and took up BF when I returned as if I never left. SO I think you should be fine.

    Re: 6-month old distracted when eating

    Mine was very distracted at that age too. I found nursing in private helped since she would pop off at any little disturbance. I think if shes hungry she will eat. It might take a little longer...

    Re: Cheerios?

    I thought that wheat was to be introduced after rice and oatmeal cereals. (if you do cereals) I think my LO started Cheerios at about 9 months.:shrug
  10. Re: Is there a reason why I shouldn't eat peanut butter?

    I was told the exact same thing by my doc, that it was okay in moderation if I didn't have peanut allergies in my family. I always made sure I brushed my teeth and washed my hands and face after...

    Re: how do I prepare her for this?

    :hug I am sorry you are going through this. I agree not to change much at home, except to introduce the sippy. And I like what BBB's mom said that phrase the whole BM thing as it will save money. I...

    Re: How do I wean my 6mo old?

    I agree with the drop one feeding session a week if you have the time. If not then I'd try to space it out as best as possible. I think I'd drop the first ones slower with more days in between then...

    Which is why I plan to pump until my LO is 35... :lol
  17. Re: can you convert the swing to a double

    I think to pump both sides with the swing it will take a while since you have to pump each side seperatly. Its better for a once in a while use. IE going out and needing EBM for the sitter ect.

    Re: Pumping before birth?

    I have heard that pumping before the baby is born can bring on early labour since milk comes in AFTER the baby is born. So I wouldn't pump early just to be safe.

    Re: Gerber finger foods

    Claire loved the wagon wheeles (which I had to get my parents to smuggle up to Canada) the puffs and the freeze dried fruit.. I agree the glass can stuff like hotdogs and beans look freaky.

    Re: Gripe water? Does it work?

    We get the ones from Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. They worked great. I could hear my little ones tummy gurgle and then this look of comfort come across her face. They were great when she was little.
