    Re: borrowing trouble?!?!!?

    Yep, I agree with the others. My oldest is almost 5 and the only times I have been away from him overnight is when I was in the hospital having #2. I hated every minute of that, but even then, my...

    Re: "twiddling"

    When my boys twiddled and it was just too much for me, I would just hold their hand - put my thumb in their palm and kinda wrap my fingers over the back of thier hand. And I would always look at...
  4. Re: Almost 23 months and I feel full???

    Have you eaten a lot of oatmeal (or oatmeal cookies :snicker) recently or some other galactague (sp?) food? I found that the day after I ate a lot of banana chips, my supply really increased when I...

    Re: sudden weaning for medical reasons

    I can't remember if she eats banana or not, but when I was trying to get my son (abour 5 months at the time) to take a bottle, I would mush up some banana and put it on the tip of the bottle with the...

    Re: Cystic Fibrosis

    Hi! I don't know much about CF, but my nephew was diagnosed with it at about a week old. My sister did bf him directly from the breast and from the bottle with pumped milk. Her son is now about 3...
  8. Re: pumping on a teacher's schedule

    Hi! I also teach, but I have middle schoolers, so my day is a bit different. I would pump first thing in the morning when I woke up - I was trying to build my supply and stash, you may not need to...

    Re: PCOS and LOW MILK!

    Have you asked your doctor about domperidone or Reglan. I have pcos also. I don't know for sure if my low supply was linked to it or not, but domperidone helped me go from pumping 3 oz per day to...
  10. Re: take LO to the hospital or doctor??

    And just so you know, this won't be the last growth spurt. :lol Ryan, my 2 year old, I swear is going through a growth spurt right now. I am not nursing him during the day time, but this kid will...
  11. Re: most comfortable nursing positions?

    This is so true. When my boys were really little, I would put a pillow on my lap with the baby and my arm on top of it, a pillow under my elbow and then I would roll up a spit rag and place that...
  12. Re: take LO to the hospital or doctor??

    :ita And in addition, the baby is MUCH more effective at removing milk than the pump will EVER be! Honestly, if you got 1/2 oz in 5 minutes after nursing all day and night, your supply is just fine!...

    Re: EP: Sore Nipples

    I will check when I get home to see what sizes I have. I know I tried to other bigger sizes. Have you tried putting olive oil on your breasts before you pump, kinda acting as a lubricant between...

    Re: Gave lil man frozen stash..

    My guess would be that he is just going through a growth spurt. IMO, fresh vs frozen shouldn't be any more or less filling. Probably just a growth spurt!

    Is he at the breast at all? Are you...

    Re: Exclusively Pumping

    Nope, it just sits at work, storing my yogurt every now and then when I remember to put it in there. Seriously, I would not miss it at all. You really are welcome to it. Also, I have 2 tubes of...

    Re: Exclusively Pumping

    :ita I used a mini fridge at work while I was pumping. If you want it, it is yours. It is a 6-pack size fridge, but it was perfect for a few bottles of milk and the pump horns. LMK, you are more...

    Re: Exclusively Pumping

    Re: Mother's Intuition

    Man, Susan, you are such a trooper! So glad he likes the sling. How young can you put him on your back? Maybe put him on you back while you pump? You will make this work! :gvibes

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    At her age, I would have to agree that it is almost completely for comfort rather than a physical need. Doing more fun stuff with her will also probably help you as well! Have fun!

    I think your pumping schedule sounds pretty good. You should be pumping about every 2 - 3 hours tht you are away from baby. If you are trying to increase your output you can pump more. Remember,...
