    Re: defrosted milk: can refreeze?

    Once milk has been frozen and defrosted you need to use it within 24 hours. Do not refreeze.

    Re: Not responding to Hygeia Pump

    I did respond to your question in the other thread yesterday, but I have one more observation from my use of the Hygeia. I find that in order to get a let down I have to use what feels like more...
  3. Re: odd things we were told by the hospital

    You wouldn't need to lotion a newborn is the hospital didn't maintain the practice of bathing babies within minutes of them being born. It is unnecessary and bad for their skin.
  4. Re: To get or not to get (a new pump)

    I have both a Medela (from baby #1) and a Hygeia (insurance covered baby #2). I prefer the Medela, but the Hygeia works okay. Since the Medela has a better tote bag I keep it at home and use it...
  5. Re: Supplementing with homemade formula

    Pumping 10 ounces in 6 hours is really good! I pump around 13-15 ounces in 10 hours and most working moms consider that a really good output. You are away from baby for what? 7-8 hours? Then 10...

    Re: Breastfeeding after Frenectomy

    My daughter also nursed my nipples raw before getter her tongue clipped. I pumped and had my husband offer a bottle once to give my nipples a break, but she wouldn't take it. :( If you are really...
  7. Re: Feeling attacked by husband, dentist, and doctor

    Toddlers manipulate, huh? Who knew! What exactly does night feeding have to do with that? You decide what you let your child do, and you not setting a limit for night feeding doesn't make your...
  8. Re: Low Supply AFTER the weekend with no pumping

    Ugh! I hate the pump! But maybe you are right and I need to do a pump or two over the weekend. I would just offer to nurse more often, but she is not into comfort nursing (prefers her thumb to me,...
  9. Low Supply AFTER the weekend with no pumping

    When I was working full time and pumping for my son a few years ago, I used the weekends to increase my supply by nursing frequently all weekend long. Usually my pumping output would be highest on...
  10. Re: Milk fat stuck to bottle during transfer

    I find it helps to leave the bottles out on the counter for a few minutes before swirling.

    Re: Pumping - one side or both?

    I would pump both sides. I also had oversupply with my first and both my first and my current only nurse one side per session. I found that if I pumped just one side I would end up leaking on the...
  12. Re: My breastfed baby has an ear infection

    I am going to parrot maddieb, if baby is still suffering after 4 days, then it was not due to a bacterial ear infection, however, you should still finish the entire course of antibiotics. Once...
  13. Re: Stress and breastfeeding 5 month old.

    Co-sleeping isn't an all or nothing idea. A lot of moms on this forum, like me, start the night with baby in their crib then upon the first night waking they bring baby into their bed for the rest...

    Re: Gas and spit up. Normal?.

    Sometimes a mother's milk supply can get to be too much during the first few months of nursing, which can lead to lots of spit ups. Milk supply can get be up and down during these first few months...

    Re: profuse sweating while nursing

    babies sweat a lot from their heads, so it ends up looking like they are sweating a lot. Sometime after 8 months old or so, my son used to wake up from every nap with soaked hair. Profuse sweating...
  16. Re: skip out on dairy and water til one year old?

    I followed the advice in Gill Rapley's book Baby Led Weaning. She advises to give a cup of water with a "solids" meal. Why no sippy until a year?

    Re: Pumping at Work

    The difference between 3.5oz and 4oz could vary between different bottle brands, too. For instance, the bottles I pump into I have to collect up to the 4.5oz mark to equal 4oz in the bottle DD eats...
  18. Re: 'Following a letdown' when pumping?

    I like the automatic let down feature on the PISA. That is my only complaint about my Hygeia, that the highest speed isn't as good at letdown as the Medela PISA letdown button. That is strange that...
  19. Re: Transition to solids at daycare

    I continued to send the same amount of milk up until my son switched to cows milk around 13 months. The reason I did that is because he continued to drink all of his bottles every day. I decided...

    Re: can it be kept?

    Ooo, that is a tough one. It would probably be okay until Tuesday because, as DJs.mom says, it wasn't previously frozen. The bigger question in my mind is, how long was it on the counter? I would...
  21. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    My pediatrician always told us the important number is the hours of combined total sleep, not the hours of straight sleep at night. And yes, at that age babies are physically capable of sleeping...

    Re: Return to work pump ?

    Both of my kids only ate on side per session as well. I have a tendency for oversupply, too.

    At work I pump both sides twice, getting a few extra ounces most days, too. I don't know about you,...
  23. Re: Newborn not staying awake to nurse

    I had this problem with my first born and was advised by an LC to nurse AT LEAST every 2 hours, even at night, and top him off with an ounce of expressed milk. We continued to use all of the stay...
  24. Re: Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    My pediatrician always told me that the overall hours of sleep is more important that the hours of sleep per night. Babies and toddlers have different sleep cycles than adults and can get away with...
  25. Re: 5 ½ mo sleeping through the night, worried about milk su

    I second the dream feed idea. I have done it with both of my kids for different reasons. My first woke up a lot at night, so the dream feed helped me get a longer stretch of sleep without him...
