    kym- would it be possible to keep the milk frozen at daycare? Or what about putting it in cereal? I have stored milk and want to rotate some so sometimes I will pump in the morning and give her cereal. She won’t take a bottle. I’m a SAHM so I know it’s a little different but just a thought.

    I have tried one sippy but she just chews on it. I was wondering if someone had a specific brand that works. It’ s very rare that I am not with her now. Maybe I’ll just keep giving it to her for practice and if I do end up working we’ll figure something out. It would be at least another month probably that I would be working IF I did get this job.

    Ash – if you are between people someone may switch with you to the aisle or window. If you still don’t feel comfortable nursing on the plane you could always run hot water over it. Ask for hot water for tea and just put the bottle in that. I nursed on the plane and it was fine

    Anne I was in the same boat as you. She use to get a bottle and I wanted to rotate milk and she refused it after not having one for awhile. I just figured that she was done with bottles and we would start learning on a regular cup. If I am gone or I am rotating milk she just gets the milk in cereal or some other solids. Of course my MIL throws…[Read more]

    Does anyone use sippy cups? Ava has decided that she does not want bottles. She hasn’t had one in awhile and we tried a couple times recently and she refuses. I am thinking a sippy cup might work for when I am away. It’s not often but there is a chance I may go back to work. She is breastfed and is 7.5 months old

    My LO will not take a bottle. If for some reason I am not around and she needs to eat, she will take enough just to get by eat solid food. My cousin’s was the same way. How old is your LO? Can you put it in cereal? I’ve done that to rotate supply in the freezer because she won’t take a sippy either.

    Judi – glad to see I’m not the only one who’s LO has some dog hair on her tongue =)

    I will have a drink or 2. Usually after she goes to bed but not always. It leaves your milk like your blood and only about 10% of what you eat actually makes it to your milk.

    Thanks for the tips on the cup. We have been working with a regular cup and she is improving but I don’t want to give her bm in it yet. Today she took a bottle fine from my mom while I was away for the day. So who knows…maybe it just depends on her mood. I know that she won’t take it if I am around but she didn’t take it in the church…[Read more]

    I give a lot of credit to moms who pump. It adds a whole new level to breastfeeding. I only pump once in awhile and I hate it. I still have not had my period. I gave birth in September so its been over 1.5 years since my period and I am loving it.
