    thetoymomma – the biggest advice I have is that you need someone else to give them the bottle. I NEVER could get either one of mine to take a bottle from me. I had to take my new baby to school for the first day without EVER taking a bottle and about 3 hours in she broke down and ate (she was 10 pounds at birth and about 15 at 2 months)! Her…[Read more]

    I was thinking the same thing as phatbaby lawson or maybe keri could tell them that if she gets upset to take her back to your mom because she is calm there since it is her normal environment (instead of saying they are strangers!). Good luck. Lawson sounds like riley!

    Leslie – Take some deep breaths! 🙁 Sorry you are having a tough time on the same day as good news…it makes it hard to enjoy the good news. Most girls are really crazy about their parents, so I am sure that it really hurt her feelings. Not sure of what their relationship is like, but most women really like to be with their parents and want…[Read more]

    I use Mirena for birth control. I like it so far. My dr said that it hurts less the sooner you have it put in after having the baby because your body isn’t completely back to normal yet. I had it put in at my 6 week appt and I had a little bleeding that day, but then none since them. I didn’t have any stomach issues from it. So far I love it…[Read more]

    *wyatts*mommy* – I use lilly pads and love them. I used them with my first also. I am ready to start leaking…10 weeks old baby…and I forgot to put on my lilly pad today and by the time I got to work, someone informed me that I was leaking. I looked down to find my entire right boob was wet through my shirt! They don’t soak up the milk, but…[Read more]

    Help! I am flying out tomorrow and don’t know to travel with my breastmilk. I will be leaving at 7 am on Thursday and will get back home on 7 pm on Friday. ANyone familiar with traveling with breastmilk? I didn’t want to check a bag, but there might not be any other way… or what about shipping it overnight to me in dry ice?

    I am traveling for work….so my baby is staying home with my husband and her sister. Hope he doesn’t go crazy with two babies and no momma. I just can’t bear to dump my milk and I am traveling with my boss so don’t want to make a big ordeal about getting my milk home although I really want to. The worst part is that I will be using up all my…[Read more]

    Doublemomma – I live in McKinney but work in Frisco (a few minutes from Stonebriar mall on the other side of 121. I thought it sounded like you lived around me by some of the things you said in your posts! That is funny.

    kyanaandmalachismom – It might work for you if you haven’t been pumping with another pump! Medela support said my body was used to the pumping/sucking style of the pump in style adavanced (which I love) minus the ugly bag! 🙂 However, based on all the reviews online some really like it! My boobs might just be too big for it! I didn’t even use…[Read more]

    I have been back at work for a week now. My nipples are as sore as when I started nursing again. I don’t remember them hurting so much after the last pregnancy when I started pumping again. Last time I would pump on the highest setting the knob would turn to and this time on the very lowest setting. Ouch…hope it stops soon.

    My older…[Read more]

    Thanks, styx. I read something saying that, but wasn’t sure if I could trust it! I am bringing freezer bags to put it in and only going to put 3 oz in each one because I read somewhere that they let you for 3 oz or smaller. I hope it all works out well. When something happens to compromise my pumping, nursing, or breastmilk…i go into melt…[Read more]

    I put my baby in her own bed after her 2 month checkup when her ped. said it was OK. I can honestly say i get 3x the amount of sleep now. I still get up 1 time most nights to feed her. There have been 7 nights she has slept through the entire night, but most nights I still get up to feed 1 time around 2 to 3. Nights that I wake up and feed her…[Read more]

    Mommy2dom – My first pooped almost every diaper for several months. My second usually poops 1 time a week (she is 3 months now) but every once in awhile will 3 times in one day. It is really weird. I asked her doc and he said it doesn’t matter if it is 1 time a week or every diaper as long as she is consistently having a lot of wet diapers. He…[Read more]

    Doublemomma where do you live in TX? I live in the Dallas area. Nice to see another Texan on here! 🙂

    So, yesterday they said they had to increase my baby to 5 oz a bottle. That means going from 16 oz while I am at work to 20oz! Man… it sure is hard to keep up with this demand. I sure wish it was easier to breastfeed and work…but it is sure worth it!

    expecting-2b-patient – I think it might have been you that mentioned them in here that caused me to try them!!! if so, you are one of my favorite people!!! I can’t believe I pumped for a year last time without them! My nipples feel better already and since it is so much faster I have already pumped as many times today as I normally do in one day…[Read more]
