    Jepica – I have stored it in the fridge for up to 2 days before freezing and it taste fine when I defrost it.

    My little one is 11 weeks and I put her in a sitting position with my arm for support and her butt in my lap. She just turns her head and we are good to go.

    Maddux- I’m pretty open about these things. At first I left my bra on during sex and now it’s not as important since I don’t let down as much. I still have a hands off rule though since it’s not really pleasurable right now. I hope that helps.

    I was talking to a woman at work and was telling her how I doubled my pumping output with fermented oats and she asked why I didn’t just use beer??? So apparently it does the same thing as fermented oats. She suggested drinking 1/2 can right after baby goes to sleep for the night. She said she went from pumping 10oz a day to 40oz a day. I hate…[Read more]

    Noah – I now feed in a lazy boy chair reclined back so that my little one doesn’t cough and pull off so much. And if she does pull off I have a wash cloath ready and I let it spray in that. When it slows or stops I let her latch back on.

    Hannakay – I live in CA. The home daycares I have used have all charged 25.00 a day regardless of attendence. So if they plan on 4 days a week they would pay 100.00.

    Hi ladies. My name is Rachel. I used this site when I was preggo with my first. He is now 8 months old and about a month and a half ago we decided to try for another. I got off birth-control (NuvaRing) and had a 40 day cycle. I always had 28 day cycles so I think my body is a little confused. Is it typical for a cycle to be THAT long after…[Read more]

    Bunny – I have a 21 mnth old at home in addition to an 8 week old. I gve my little one a bottle a day (of bm) and let me tell you it is no easier. It requires two hands and it is much harder to get up to chase my older one. It also takes more tme to prepare since yu can just whip out a boob. I’d strongly advise against quiting bf’ing if you just…[Read more]

    God-iva I feel you on the pumping. I feel great when I bf but when I pump I want to rip the thing off and throw it agains the wall. I often day dream about doing just that right before I know I have a pumping session. It’s so weird. Sometimes it makes me feel so sick that I feel line throwing up. It usually passes after the letdown slows so I just…[Read more]

    Hi all- I am 6 weeks pp. I had been ebf my little one until this week. Now I pump twice a day and offer a bottle. I have to go back to work so it was important that she learn how to take from a bottle. Is it normal for ones supply to fluctuate throughout the day?
