• I just started making my own baby food a few weeks ago and loving it! I steam the food in a steamer (after peeling/coring and taking seeds out) and then I just puree it in the magic bullet. And it is done! So easy-that is the best way I have found to do it. I have made squash, green beans, pears, apples, sweet potatoes and she loves it=).

    Angie, I was worried about the same things when I was heading back to work. I wanted to get as much milk frozen as possible because you just never know. I would pump every morning about an hour before she would wake up (for me it was 5am-but I would go right to bed after) and I would get about 2 oz and then stop and then I would fed her…[Read more]

    Good luck with your teeth, bri! I hear root canals are not that fun=(.

  • Erica93 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 2 months ago

    m.m. masi, I can’t imagine ever pumping 30 oz, but I only pump for about 20 minutes because after that length of time, I only get drops. Should I keep trying or is that pretty much the end of the milk supply?

  • Erica93 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 2 months ago

    I am so frustrated about pumping right now! I think something is wrong with the motor of my medela pump in style. It sounds like it is struggling and I am barely getting any milk (maybe 2 oz after feeding 4 hours ago) during a pumping session from both breasts and I still feel some what full afterwards I just wrote to medela but I am so…[Read more]

    okay, it was my first day at work and I only pumped 8 oz. for the whole day. How many oz are you guys getting when you pump? She ended up only eating like 5 oz during the whole day…hopefully she will eat more when she is used to me not being there. Hubbie is taking care of her now.

    Ok, I need some help…Isabella has been nursing for 9 1/2 months now and last two nights she was waking every 1 and half to 2 hours to eat. I don’t think she is teething yet (not one tooth yet!!) and I am concerned becasue she was so hungry. She is now getting picky about her solids and refuses to eat as much. This happen to anyone else?…[Read more]

    Well, weaning has been going really well. We are down to three feedings a day. We were at 6-7 a day about two months ago. I only nurse her before bedtime and twice at night. My BB are awful full by nighttime, but hopefully that will go away soon. She is drinking from a bottle her whole milk and loves it if it is warm. I will worry about…[Read more]

    Bri, that is funny because I went back to work this week and she is sleeping much better. Hopefully this isn’t temporary!

  • Erica93 replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 2 months ago

    First day back at work is going well, I am so busy that the day is flying by. Just called hubbie and she hasn’t eaten anything from the bottle (like 1oz) since i last nursed her at 6:30am. I am guessing she is on strike until I get home! This happen to anyone else?

    I teach children with Autism and I have done a lot of research on vaccinations and Autism. Especially now that I have a 6 month old getting her shots every couple of months. I have read no correlation between the two either and we have been giving Isabella her shots on an alternate schedule, jsut because I don’t like her receiving so many at…[Read more]

    kym, have you tried just putting her down for the night at the 8:30 time? Isabella is 12 months now and she woke every three hours until she was 11 months. Now I am strickly at two feedings a night and any other time that she wakes up I just let her cry. She goes back to sleep within 5 minutes of waking…Just a thought!

    Thanks guys, it was like my biggest nightmare to lose all my BM in the freezer. I have always been like, ‘my milk’ don’t leave the freezer open too long!, don’t let Isabella play with the milk bags (she loves taking them out of the freezer LOL!). Now it is all gone. Nothing I can do now. She is on half cow’s milk but I still only pump like 3-4…[Read more]
