    Lawsons Mom – Depending on your state laws and how big you company is then they might need to provide somewhere with a locked door. Even if this means putting one on the supply door. Doesn’t everyone know you pump? At my work they all knew. You also hear the pump outside my oofice door. HAHA

    You ladies and your ‘closets’ just make me laugh. I know it isn’t a laughing matter when you can’t get into your room but how dense some of the employees are is. Everyone that I worked with knew what I was doing. They’d see me leave my office just to go wash the parts. They do make wipes but I am so open that I just washed them in the sink as I put my milk into the fridge. Only once did I have an employee walk in on me because he needed to give me an installation check. He knew better but just forgot. Even with a note on my office door saying DND and me telling him that I was busy when he knocked didn’t work. From then on he just slid money under the door when it was closed. HAHA! At least I had my desk to dive under when he opened the door.

    lauraoct – That makes more sense. Like I said, I didn’t understand why someone would.

    i started pumping a few days ago and i get 5 oz. Oliver has fed pretty much on and off for the part 5 hours. He has then drank the 5 oz i expressed. Finally settled and asleep. Anyone any idea why he is wanting so much its the same every afternoon/evening now. I feel so exhausted and not getting a chance to play with my 19 month old either. He is only 13 days old.

    Lol. Zoey’s 4 months and her priority is still FOOD. She doesn’t care what’s going on around her more than she cares about getting that little belly full. Guess I should count my blessings!

    2ndtimemommmy – I do what you mean. Alex is a shrieker as well. When he’s really excited watch out. And if it’s directed into your ear… OUCH! It passes. Alex was really bad a month or two ago. He was just learning his voice. We’d giggle with him and shhhh him. They don’t understand inside voices. Just watch your own ears until it passes.

    logansmom, it must be scary to have your tiny baby in the NICU! You are doing a wonderful job for her, from what I hear 2 tsp is an amazing amount to actually be able to get of just colostrum. It WILL get better. You don’t want to waste any of your colostrum, but as soon as your milk comes in, rub some on your nipples at the end of each pumping session, and then let them air dry. Breastmilk has amazing antibacterial and healing qualities, and is the best thing to help you heal. My thoughts are with you during this time 🙂

    GOD-IVA – I forgot you are on that diet. That does suck big time. I had to eliminate dairy with my first but that’s it. It was hard at first but then I got use to it. As for exercise, it’s a fine line. Yes you can exercise, just not to the extreme. I do 3 10-20 minute workouts a day. I’ll do yoga in the morning, cardio during nap and pilates after the boys are in bed. We also walk daily, sometimes at the mall and sometimes around the neighborhood. I’ve lost 65lbs in 6 months. I’m kind of stuck right now but I haven’t been able to workout as hard because I ‘broke’ my tailbone several weeks back. I fell on the support bar of a hammeck and well it’s all bruised to hell down there. HAHA! It’s getting better where walking isn’t as hard and I can do some ab work outs. Nothing that I have to sit on the tailbone though. Oh well, getting better. I would just take it slow at first and see how your supply is and how your baby reacts. If you work out too much it can also change the taste and some babies will refuse it.

    Lexi, I ate a half cup twice a day and saw a difference between Friday’s pump and Monday’s pump. I doubled my pumping output within a week.

    Is it normal for my 8 week olds feeding pattern to still be quite erratic? Theres no average time between feeds,its making it really hard to go out or get anything done because shes so unpredictable as to when she will want her next feed.
    I’ll feed her, go food shopping or something,only to have her scream the supermarket isles down because she wants feeding again!

    Because of the Tylenol plant being just completely nasty and shut down right now you can’t get motrin or Tylenol. You can however buy the store brand and talk to the pharm about uses. You can give both to little babies. 102 is a high fever and the doctor needs to be called. They’ll want to know if meds have helped bring it down. For a little one it’s usually .8 which is one dropper full. We’ve been using Ibprofen which Alex has been getting 1.8 because he’s a bit bigger and six months. She’ll be fine. We went through many fevers with Chris. Haven’t yet with Alex but he’s teething which is why I’m using Ibprofen. Good luck!

    benbubby – His wiring isn’t set up yet. Many babies hit themselves or scratch themselves…hense the reason for those mittens. He’ll grow out of it. You could try swaddling him at night to keep him from waking himself up. During feedings you could hold his hand. My son was pulling at his hair while feeding. Now he plays with my necklace. You could get a sturdy necklace to help him focus on that instead.

    laura-rotovirus is just another common extremely contagious childhood sickness. i’m pretty sure it presents as diherria and vomiting.
