    It has now been three days since I had my daughter (2nd child) and my breasts have received the milk and are engourged. I am not brestfeeding, but I am pumping and giving my breast milk to my daughter. I am pumping every 2-3 hours for 30 minutes (15 on each breast) but only getting about 1/2 an ounce...
  • Forum Thread: Length of time to breastfeed?

    I am going to be returning to work soon. I am currently pumping breastmilk at home and initially decided to stop before I go back to work. I feel a little guilty about not providing my son with something so special. I have pumped for almost 3 months. Should I be happy that I was able to at least provide...

    I'm so sorry you have to make this choice. Mommies carry such a burden. I agree that you don't have to stop completely and honestly the weaning process would be better for both of you if you didn't. You'll ache a little during the day but nurse as soon as you go home and all throughout...
  • Forum Thread: Newborn Twins, Supplementing, help

    I just recently gave birth to identical twin girls on October 31. We started breastfeeding in the hospital and everything was going good.

  • Forum Thread: Breast Pumps...

    Does anyone have any recommendation on a breast pump. I am borrowing the Medela Pump in Style from a friend and it is working out well. I am thinking of maybe buying a pump of my own.

    Hi! I'm new to these boards as well as to mommy-hood altogether. I just had my son a little over 3 weeks ago (he was born February 15th) and though my original plan was to exclusively BF, I ended up deciding to pump and supplement with formula. In the process of doing so, though, I found an incredible...

    I dont remember the brand we purchased (it was available at target) but it was electric and about $30-$40 if memory serves. I dont know how it compares to the more expensive versions of electric pump, but my wife found it useful for pumping when she needed to. If that wont work, I agree you should look...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Engourgement period

    It really is so much easier to breastfeed your baby than mess with the pumping. It is often recommended not to pump until you have been breastfeeding successfully for more than a month. I nursed my son every 2 hours during the day and he was waking up every 4 hours at night. The engorgement period is...
