Just curious if anyone else was out there.  We have been using the Lact-Aid since DD was one month old and she is now just over 7 months.  We have been extremely lucky to find a great group of amazing mommas who have donated milk to augment my low supply and have not had to use hardly any formula.

 

I think the biggest question in my mind is what our breastfeeding relationship is going to look like at one year.  I try not to look too far ahead and take it day by day, but I still wonder.  Are we going to keep going?  If so, what are we going to put in the bags (I can't imagine our luck with donors will last forever, nor do I want to take milk for smaller babies)?  If not, will my small supply hang around so she can "snack" without the Lact-Aid at all?  Lots of questions I don't know the answer to.  And the biggest, how long can I get hubby to help me clean the darn things every day?  :lol

It looks like your post might have been missed so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have suggestions to share?

 

In terms of the cleaning, I'm not as familiar with the Lact-Aid, but with my pump parts, I got baskets so that we could throw them in the dishwasher and microwave sterilization bags for the tubes. :)

Oh thank you.  I wasn't looking for advice per se, just wondering who else was out there.  Unfortunately, the Lact-Aid parts can't go into the microwave, I already asked the company that.  :)
