I have some Lansinoh coupons that I don't need anymore. If somebody wants them please email me your address (firstname.lastname@example.org ). They are for nursing pads, storage bags, soothie pads and I have two coupons for $10 off the Lansinoh Affinity pump. I don't want to throw them away because they are such good coupons!View Thread
I'm sure you have been asked this before... but how often should I be pumping? My son is almost 2 weeks old and I am taking a taking a 12 week leave (so 10 weeks left). So far I have been pumping in the morning after he eats and then sometimes after his last feeding before I go to bed. But sometimes I am too tired to pump at night. I fear that I'm not doing enough. I will be working 7-4 so he will be in daycare from 6:30-4:30. I don't know how often I will be able to pump at work. I get an hour lunch and two 15 min breaks.
With my first son I was only able to breastfeed for around 3 months because my milk dried up. I think part of that was because I didn't pump enough and also because he was in the NICU for 6 days and my milk never caught up to him. I don't want to go through that again. I'm not sure how long I want to breastfeed for, but at least 6 months.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! TIA!View Thread
I am currently 34 weeks pregnant with my second child. My first son is 20 months old. I breastfed him, but only exclusively for 3 months and then strictly formula by the time he was 6 months old (I was never really able to make enough milk for him). I was wondering if you guys bf in front of your younger children? I guess I am a little self conscious about it. He is getting to the age where he is very courious and watches every single thing I do. I just don't know if I feel comfortable doing it in front of him? Anyone else have this same issue?View Thread
