The BEST article on how to pump for your baby written by a gal who pumped exclusively for her baby for 14 months!! I exclusively pumped for several weeks and I agree, this gal is spot on EVERYTHING! Helpful thoughts even for breastfeeding moms not currently pumping. You'll never know when you have to.
The BEST article on how to pump for your baby written by a gal who pumped exclusively for her baby for 14 months!! This was really helpful and funny to read. I like how at the end she doesn't try to exalt herself over women who don't breast feed. Sometimes women who breast feed get very pretentious about it... As though it makes them a better mother then those who don't. #callymarie #gladysjeannette #babyStuff #babybottles #breastfeeding
I'm not am exclusive pumper but can totally relate! The BEST article on how to pump for your baby written by a gal who pumped exclusively for her baby for 14 months!! This was really helpful and funny to read.
Article on how to pump for your baby written by a gal who pumped exclusively for her baby for 14 months!! I need to do this now and for my future babies.
After a series of frustrating (okay, infuriating), heartbreaking failed attempts at nursing, several clogged ducts, and TWO (seriously) bouts of mastitis, I ended up doing something I never anticipated while planning for my sons arrival: exclusively pumping. As anyone who has been down this road will tell you, its one of the more labor intensive, exhausting ways to breastfeed. Nevertheless, it truly can work. Knowing how much effort EPing takes, I was inspired and motivated to read the following post by a mama who exclusively pumped for her babe for a whopping 14 months. Below is an excerpt from her amazingly helpful list of tips and tricks to making pumping work more smoothly if thats the route you take. If you are going to exclusively pump, you will need to buy an AWESOME pump. They are expensive, but just think of the radical amounts of money you are saving in the long run by not having to buy formula. I have the sweetest, most generous friends who knewmy pumping predicamentand bought meTHIS PUMP (1) while we were in the hospital. I loved its size – perfect for on-the-go. You can’t get away from the obnoxious woh-woh-woh-ing sound, but if you hide the mechanism under a pillow it helps. My 3-year-old got pretty good at mimicking the sound and I would hear him doing it in his room at night while trying to fall asleep. Ha! After about 7 months of using that pump, the mechanism started to make funny sounds and occasionally would spontaneously shut off mid-pump session. As soon as this started happening, I calledMedela(you can get their infoHERE) and they sent me shipping labels to send them my old pump and they overnighted me a new pump. All free. It was awesome. If you want to establish a good supply, you will need to pumpevery 2-3 hours for the first 3 months– even through the night. I know this sounds crazy, but it was a really important key to my success. Plus, when you think about it, this is usually how a baby would be nursing during that time. Once I got past the first 3 months, I was able to slack off a bit and let myself skip a pump or stretch some to 4 hours between pumps. At night my routine eventually became pump at 9pm, skip the midnight pump, then wake up at 3 am to pump. I kept pumping at 3 am even after the Happy Baby was sleeping through the night because it is a really important pump. Your body produces the most milk between the hours of 1-5 am, so try to pump in that window, if you can! (I once fell asleep while pumping and woke up to a lap covered in milk. Not kidding.) The nurse I had in the hospital told me to pump for 30 minutes. So that is what I did. And it was LUDICROUS. I literally spent 4 hours of my day pumping. I later found out that15-20 minutesis actually what is recommended/necessary for pumpers. That is much more realistic with a busy mom’s schedule! Pump for an extra 5 minutes after your milk stops flowing. This will elicit a second let-down and tell your body to produce more milk. Sometimes I would have 2 or even 3 let-downs in a pumping session. At my peak, I was producing about 16+ oz of milk per session. But once my supply evened out my average was about 7 oz per session (10-12 oz at 3 am since that was my longest stretch) – which was just what the Happy Baby needed. When you’re done, wait 1 minute after milk stops flowing so that it is good and empty. You DO NOT want a clogged duct or mastitis – take it from me. Massageyour tatas while pumping. This really helped to stimulate let-down and milk production. Sometimes even just shifting my position in my chair would help me produce more milk. Squeeze those things like lemons, ladies! Also, if I was really having a hard time getting another let-down, I would increase/decrease the suction setting for a few minutes to stimulate it before going back to the setting I was most comfortable with. NOTE – Setting your pump to the highest suction does not always guarantee more milk (as one would think). What it does guarantee, however, is a blood blister on your nipple. I am not even kidding about that. #speakingfromexperience You will get awesome at pumping in random places. I pumped in public restrooms (ick), closets, on the floor while playing with my 3-year-old, in the car coming home from date nights, in the first aid station at Disney World, and I even got to be a pro at pumping while driving (you can buy one of those awesome hands-free pumping brasHEREto help with this. I always got a giggle out of wondering what an officer might think if I ever got pulled over while I was hooked up to my pump. I am also sure I made many a truckers’ day – or scarred them for life – when they drove past me). Read the rest here!

5 Myths About Gender Neutral Parenting
Should You Raise a Gender-neutral Baby? Encourage children to play with both "boy" and "girl" toys, keep clothing and room décor neutral, and allow their children to pick their own clothes--even if that means their son goes to school in a tutu or their daughter goes out dressed as Spider-Man.
