    Ok that makes sense... I have a pisa but it is old so I was thinking about renting a hosp grade pump. Once I go back to work I will be able to use one of the pumps there. (I'm a nurse in the newborn nursery) Basically I'm trying to build a freezer supply for when I go to work and am not really loving pumping and hopefully won't have to pump much at home once I go back to work. The other thing is if I pump after feeding in the morning is it normal not to have a let down?

    I had about a 2 day supply (1 -1.5oz/hr you are gone) before I went back to work. And It was fine. And I never pumped at home. One of the worst things for pumping is stressing about pumping. I hated pumping so I encourage everyone to do as little of it as possible. It is necessary to feed your baby, but when it can be done less it makes sense to do so.

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.
