    A nursing mother is taking on the Chicago judicial system after being denied access to an appropriate lactation room to pump her milk, and instead, being offered the men's bathroom. It's hard to believe that it's 2018 when you read the latest headlines out of Chicago. A new mom, committed to...

    Pink has always been one of our superhero mamas, but the latest picture she posted on Instagram has us applauding as she shows the reality of a mama who breast-pumps. Contrary to popular belief, pumping milk is not easy and often can be painful and stress-inducing. Rockstar mama Pink has...
  3. Breastfeeding Challenges
    I returned to work approximately 3 months ago. Pumping has been challenge. Before I go into detail, let me preface by saying that when I nurse my baby in the evenings, on weekends, during vacations (I've had a week off and other half days in-between) - supply is not an issue. He seems well fed...

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forums. So happy to have found some like minded mamas out there. I'm hoping you all can give me some advice/suggestions. My LO is going to be 1 on August 31st.

  5. Breastfeeding
    About two weeks ago, my baby suddenly refused to nurse. She was getting in her two top front teeth and was having a terrible time with them. They have now broken through, but she still won't go anywhere near my nipples and screams at them every time I offer (I offer at least once or twice a...

  7. Breastfeeding
    Hello all! I have a 14 month old and I've decided I want to continue to pump and send breastmilk to daycare with her. As it stands now, I send 3 3oz bottles with her. One typically comes home untouched. She'll drink the other two in sippy cups (stras) or sometimes in the bottle before...

  9. Breastfeeding Challenges
    Hello my baby is 6 days old and in the Nicu. Been pumping like crazy. I bf my first son and pumped for 10 months. My milk just drops out while pumping. I'm not getting that full spray effect out of the nipples- just these lane drops. And milk is transitioning from colostrum to reg milk. Noobs...
  10. Breastfeeding Challenges
    This all started about 3 weeks ago when I had to go to work for 8 hours and my friend fed my baby boy from a bottle with my pumped milk. This is my second baby. I had zero problems breast feeding my first one. Every time after that day my DS would latch on, suck for a minute and then would...
