OK, I admit this particular dirty deed. She sooo deserved it. I shouldn't have posted anything, but I wasn't sure I could figure out the DDDDC thing. It was difficult to find the instructions page.
Pumping: lately the boobs are cooperative and consistently give me 6 oz in 10 min, pumping both sides at full speed on the Medela Pump-in-style (not Advanced). Yesterday morn I pumped 'em empty and got 5 oz out of the full side. I figure a full boob has 5 oz in it. Evelyn takes more than 10 min to munch that, but I'm guessing she gets most of the milk in the first 10 min after letdown, and then she keeps sucking because she's comfortable. She slows down after 10-15 min.
Andy, icky abouth the phthalates. that makes me glad I don't wear makeup or nailpolish regularly.
Paq, love your description of the SCA dichotomy. And that shirt for Laura is hilarious! I hope your tooth isn't anything nasty. If right now is no less convenient than later, then now is likely the best time to do something about it.
Karen, I wear a M Glamourmom perfectly but my breasts are on the small side for a nursing mom, 34D. (they look like a C) Sooo worth it for the good quality, since I wear them constantly. My theory on the cost: $25 of bra + $14 of shirt. They turn any shirt into a nursing shirt, and a much more effective one than the dreadful things I bought from Motherwear (what
a pain those are).
Pam, Happy Birthday! What are cuptowels?
Cool that the big nurse-in has had an impact already. Somebody was certainly listening. I'll wait to hear from y'all what the result is.
Spelling - I get it right the first time. I try to be a stickler about grammar, too.
Jess, cool that you got diapers and are enjoying them. And good for you for being the only crunchy woman left in Boulder. :LOL
Evelyn is four months today. Some of our babies are over five months, wow. It's amazing the spread in size and age, and yet they're so close developmentally. It seems whenever I log on after a weekend to post about something (sitting, solids) there is already a big discussion about it.
