    styx- Im using Dr.Browns level 1 nipples. Im pumping 12-13 oz a day at work. I guess I need some oatmeal. Now Im freaking out because I will literally only have one time I can pump when the kids come back, busy teaching and meetings all day long. This is really making me sad

    It almost seems like a contest ‘whos baby takes the most oz in a feed’ Great , your baby takes 10 oz a feed. and is only 2 weeks old, that must make them advanced. I agree the month by month pages are misleading to the FTMs. It seems like everybody is FF. And the rice cereal, dear god I feel for those poor kids, it pains me when some one else…[Read more]

    Oh man, we are not NIP well either. Ive given up the cover because its hot and just gets in the way. I dont know exactly why she never has a good feed when we are out but Im starting to think she is picking up on my anxieties about it.

She constantly popping off and on and chocking and coughing ( Im taking her off to give my let down time to spray and she still does this) Im seeing an LC tomorrow but Im not confident she is going to be able to do much. Any one have…[Read more]

    Bri and deeyore- thank you! I have made some attempts at block feeding but havent found it help much, I guess I have to be more vigilant. Was pumping a bit off first but didnt want to increase my supply. I hope the LC has some lightbulb solution I hadnt thought of, but I just keep thinking that in a few months when she can handle it she is going…[Read more]

    precious- you have probably already looked into this but have you tried a nipple shield? My first wouldnt latch and I had moderate success with a nipple shield.
