    I actually called Enfamil and an open can of formula is only good for 30 days! I do not use it often and had no idea it was bad. What a waste of money. Guess I throw it out an buy two small cans in case of emergency. All this stuff to remember, its starting to blow my mind. I looked at my freezer suppy of milk and I have some in there that is…[Read more]

    Cindy C- If you are with your baby all the time you don’t need to pump unless you want to increase your suply and then you pump in between feedings. I pump two to three times a day when at work (every time I miss a feeding with my baby).

    rebneter- i use enfimil lipil with iron (however you spell it) on occasion for my LO. she seems to do fine with it. I’ve tried the gentalease and she spits it out. but formula sure does smell bad & the poopie diapers (YUCK). i can certainly tell when i have given my baby formula by the smell of that poopie diaper!

    Parkersmommy1- I find that Tryn spits up more when she has frozen milk too. I thought it was just a coincidence but I guess not. I hate to throw away 3 months worth of frozen milk. What should I do?

  • Kym22 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 9 months ago

    OMG I think just talking to you guys helps! I just got 7.25 oz from one pumping session! Total for today (don’t hate me) 16oz!!!!! I just wish it would be like this everyday!

    bj4- i have no advice for you. I am in EXACLTY the same position except i do not get up at 2am to pump. Any other ladies out there have any advice? Is seems all we do is work and pump!!!!!

  • Kym22 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 9 months ago

    I am having so much anxiety about the formula thing (choosing the wrong one) and I think my LO is having boobie withdrawl. She was up at 12am, 4am and 5:30am. I feel so terrible. This feeding this in consuming my mind and I haven’t been able to sleep much. Lord please grant me peace and serenity!

  • Kym22 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 9 months ago

    Well- I tried my LO on cereal for the first time last night after she nursed. I mixed 1 tbsp with 1 oz of breastmilk & she loved it! She wants nothing to do with the fruits and veggies and make horrible faces, but she actually liked the cereal. I think i will let her have cereal a couple times a week. I dont see how it can really hurt as she is…[Read more]

    Has anyone had to take any pain meds while nursing? I have pulled a muscle in my back and in terrific pain. I have left over darvocet I got while pregnant for siatica (spelled wrong) and wondered if it was okay to take.

    I will try the oats thing. i am not allowed to pump more than twice at work (once on my lunch break and they allow me one other break-it takes me 30 mins to pump) and i think that is what has my supply dropping even more. i have in the past tried to pump after feeding my baby but nothing would come out and i felt my efforts were in vain. is that…[Read more]

    Sure is quiet in here today!

  • Kym22 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 9 months ago

    Hi all- I am so worried about my LO. She has been up every 30 minutes at night usually until about 2pm when she finally sleeps till 5 or 6. I know she is missing her Mommy time. She only ate 2 oz of formula this morning too. I am giving her two to three bottles of frozen milk (sometimes smell a little like tin (does that mean its bad?) I think I…[Read more]

    Kebler98 thank you! I struggle to get that much. My pump isnt all that great as its a few years old & I have to pump one side at a time to have enough suction. In the morning I get so frustrated. LOs last feeding is usually around 9-9:30 pm and I go all night with out pumping. At 6am I pump my left side and only get 1-2 oz AFTER ALL NIGHT. My LO…[Read more]

    thanks anniemarie. i pumped 12 oz at work today and wondered if that was normal. that is what i give the babysitter for the next day (three 4oz bottles) so it works out great. I don’t have to use my frozen supply. Yesterday i only got 7.5oz when i was at work. my supply changes so much it drives me nuts.

  • Kym22 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 9 months ago

    OK- It happened! My LO bit me last night. Oh it was painful. I don’t think she meant to because it was only once and then she continued nursing. She has the two botton teeth right now. I can’t imagine what it would feel like if she has top teeth too!
