I also have been pumping into the same bottles for one day ( for example, monday I will pump into the same bottles, Tuesday pump into a new set of bottles and label them by the days)and i just read that you should not pump into cooled milk…Well, I have been doing that for 3 days now and feeding it to her! oops. So they expect you…[Read more]

    Poor Baby! I just want to say that Pooping is our worst enemy! I hate it when she has trouble pooing, she is so uncomfortable and fussy!

    well, I just pumped for the first time today and fed my baby girl 2oz from a bottle for the first time. My hopes is that she got enough for us to sleep for a bit tonight. We’ll see.

    Hello Ladies, so, my baby girl is doing so much better with the nursing since her temp has risen to a normal level. thank goodness! Im glad she did not get really sick or something. Her feedings have stayed pretty much at 20 minutes (they were 40 minutes up until around 3 nights ago.) I think it is because she is getting more milk. I can…[Read more]

    I have a BM storage question, Can I freeze milk that I have kept in the fridge for a day or two, or does the milk have to be frozen right away??

    i just started using Breastflow Bottles and they seem to work well. she took to them nicely and still breastfeeds so far.

    I have a question for you guys, I dont know if you’ll know the answer or not. but I just ate some fajitas for lunch and i think they are kinda spicey so i dont want to give my baby my BM for a bit because of it. I will give her what I have saved. But how long do you think I should wait to feed her from my breast again? I know her doctor once…[Read more]

    Went back to work today and I pumped at 10am and 3pm and I only got 4 ounces:( My girl ate 12oz while I was gone! at this rate I only have enough milk for 1.5 days for her.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    ok i need advice, my left breast is getting sharp pains in it, even when not breast feeding. any one know what that is? I have been icing it but I dont think i should BF on that breast for a bit.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    Man, I dont know about this pumping deal! I have been pumping for two days now. I only pump between 6am and 6pm because they say your supply drops after 6pm and give your breasts a break. But I get maybe 4-5oz total for one day. thats like two feedings! How am I suppose to build up a supply for when I go back to work? I am thinking of giving…[Read more]

    thanks everyone. and Marli- I too seem empty at the end of the day, she usually has to eat for a longer amount of time, but lately, I have had bm stored so I have been pumping at night and giving her bm in a bottle.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    Wow, I’m impressed with the women who are all ready wanting another child! I always thought I wanted kids close in age but my view has sadly changed:( My girl is only 14 days old so maybe it will come back but I cant even think about being pregnant again yet.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    I dont know if block feeding would help, I could try. everything is so messed up. feeding for 10 minutes every hour or 10 minutes every 2 hours. then today she eats at 9am and its almost 3pm and she hasnt ate! Could that not happen maybe at night time? at night she is like ‘ oh, i moved,let me eat for 10 seconds, oops, I pooped let me eat for…[Read more]

    I am soooo sad! Just when I was getting ahead and actually have 10 oz of BM, now I think I have to toss it all away because I have been mixing warm with cold! oohh, I could cry over that!

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    I am from Illinois! everyone seems bored today! I have been napping. not getting much sleep at night.
    aciassej-> at your babies age, she wont wake for much except eating. I noticed my baby starting to stay awake more, I believe when she was 2 weeks to 3 weeks old.
    If feeding makes her happy then that sounds good to me.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    I have and odd question. I have been feeding my baby like 2 ounces of breast milk then maybe an ounce of formula at night. I think I heard once that someone mixed these together? can you do that? I have been using two seperate bottles.

  • Jepica19 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    I know this isnt a breastfeeding question but you guys are so quickAnyone with a child around 6 weeks old- My daughter has an anal fissure because of straining for a BM. Doctor gave us these suppositories to give as needed because he doesnt want her to strain and wants that fissure to heal. Well, she is not screaming in pain BUT for about an hour…[Read more]
