    Default right size horn thingies?

    how do you know what the right size is (PIS)? I have no idea and they tell me is can make a huge difference to the amount you pump...

    I was told by my LC that I needed to go down a couple of sizes smaller than what came with the pump. I think she said to use a dime to measure the size of your nipples and if it's smaller then go smaller and if it's larger, go larger. I think.

    Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.

    proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies

    • 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.
