    My son is 14 months old. I have not started to wean him. I think he will be OK with weaning day feedings, because i work during the day and he's become accustomed to not nursing during the weekday....

    Is this true???

    I was reading a book called "What to Expect...The Toddler Years." It says "Breast milk alone can no longer meet a child's nutritional requirements -- in fact, some recent studies indicate that...

    Blanching after pumping?

    although I have been pumping for about 4 months now at work, i just noticed this problem last week. After i pump and pull off the horns, my nipples look white. There is some pain, a feeling of...
  5. Re: pumping and keeping up with growth spurts - how?

    I had this same question too when I started back to work 4 months ago. During a growth spurt, my DS drank about the same while I was away but wanted to nurse more when I got home (sometimes every...
  6. Re: giving baby more BM in bottle than can pump?

    Thank you, Shannon. You post really helps me. I'll only offer him more BM from a bottle is he starts showing signs that it is not enough for him; he has always been content with his 4-5 oz. Thanks...
  7. giving baby more BM in bottle than can pump?

    So far, my LO drinks about 5 ounces from his bottle while I'm at work. He'll turn 5 months old next Saturday. Sometimes, he drinks about 4 ounces, other times the whole 5 oz. Luckily, I have...

    Re: Slimy poo

    I don't know about being "hard core" or not. I think it depends on your baby. I think some women eliminate all the major things and if things improve with baby, they slowly re-introduce items...

    Re: Slimy poo

    Hi, I'm not sure if I can help you but my son had a similar problem. I thought it was foremilk-hindmilk imbalance at first because sometimes it was greenish (not bright green, more like...

    Re: How can I leave the house?

    Thank you for your responses so far.

    I'm no stranger to pumping. I work FT so I usually pump 2x/day at work. I also started pumping one side while he nurses from the other in the morning. I...

    How can I leave the house?

    I've been exclusively breastfeeding my DS for 4 1/2 months now. :)

    Please describe to me how I can leave the house and feed him EBM, as I've heard others describe. Do I take along previously...
  12. Does infrequent poop mean too little hindmilk?

    I talked with a LC yesterday who said one of the reasons my DS may not be having a stool every day may be because he's not getting enough hindmilk? Is this true? Does anybody have references about...
  13. Slow flow nipple even as baby gets older?

    Right now, my 4 month old son is still using a "newborn" slow flow nipple (Platex natural latch). It's what he started with at 5 weeks old.

    Do I ever need to change nipples? Is it okay to keep...

    Re: My baby's a wiggle worm!

    Thank you all for your responses. I'm happy to know I'm not the only one. Yes, he's gaining weight very well (9 - 12 oz a week, not too much for him because he's at the 90th %ile lt/age). I'm not...

    My baby's a wiggle worm!

    Some days, it seems like my DS wiggles his way all through a feeding. He'll often pop off or I'll need to take him off (if I want to save my boob from being torn away). Funny thing is that once...

    Re: Do you give vitamin D?

    Thank you all for the responses.

    I will try to expose him to the sunlight a little bit everyday. On the days we don't get a lot of sun, I'll give him the vitamin.

    Once he starts solids, I...

    Do you give vitamin D?

    My pediatrician recommended Tri-vi-sol (vitamins D, A, and C) for my baby at his 1 week appointment. I waited until he was 4 weeks old (it's cherry flavored and seemed weird giving him something...

    Bottles at the sitters

    I just started work last week and am totally new to breastfeeding.

    When the sitter would offer DS a bottle of 4 oz of EBM, she said he would take about 3 oz. She would wait about 30 - 45 minutes,...

    Re: Work-Feeding Schedules

    Nobody has shared their schedules yet. :(

    I got some ideas from another post. I guess it will just depend on the situation (baby's growth, supply, etc.) on how often I will need to pump.
