    Posted 07/29/2012 11:22:13 EDT

    I EP'd for 10 months and froze enough that I had to donate gallons of them to other families. At my peak I was pumping around 55-60 oz/day - that was at 4 pumps/day. When I started weaning I spaced my more »

    I paid $150 for my Baby Trend Expedition LX Jogger at BRU (It was on sale and then I used a 20% off coupon). It's awesome! more »

    I have the Maclaren Triumph for my umbrella stroller and I love it. It's a single. I find mine super easy to fold. It's not the lightest umbrella stroller out there but it serves my purpose (for trave more »

    I'm a SAHM and I go out with my son EVERY day. We go to a few pay indoor playspaces (there are quite a few of them around!) but I try only to go like once a month since it starts adding up. We go to a more »

    We started off in a one bdrm unit with our baby. It was difficult because of the lack of space. We ended up putting his crib in the living room and pack and play in our bdrm. We did not have a changin more »

    I am currently a SAHM and am going to transition back to work in the next year. I just have 1 child, almost 1 1/2 years old. So what should I do first? Should I look for a job first, get the job, and more »

    DS birthday was in July and we had a bbq. We invited family and close friends (about 45 ppl). DS couldn't have cared less who was there. We didn't open presents in front of anyone (esp since we had to more »

    If the American Academy of Pediatrics, other medical groups, and the CDC recommend that infants receive only breast milk for their first six months they should work with the government to give all mom more »

    My LO is turning 1 next week. He is still drinking breastmilk but about 2 wks ago I started him on almond milk. He doesn't have a dairy allergy (loves cheese & yogurt!) but I don't want him drinking a more »

    Not surprised to see it go. It was a nice store but pricey. It's also not stroller friendly and there's no way to get downstairs if you have a stroller. There's ALOT of stuff in there and it can be ve more »

    I also exclusively pump (almost 10 months now!) and we use Dr. Brown's. My baby has NEVER spit up and never had colic. We tried using the Drop-Ins for when we first started traveling but I hated them more »

    I have over 300 bags of breastmilk frozen and just started using my stash. My LO had a problem in the beginning so I would mix 1/2 frozen and 1/2 fresh. I did not scald my breastmilk before freezing ( more »

    My LO does not need his bottles warmed up anymore, but in the beginning when he did and I was at the mall, I would go to the food court and ask for a cup of hot water. I never had any problems. Just b more »

    Renting condos are great if you don't want to deal with snow removal or lawn care. :) more »

    Thanks for the awesome suggestions! I think we will go with the PHCA practice then. I'll do some research on the doctors. Thanks everyone! :) more »

    MA laws do not favor the landlord, which is why they are so careful when it comes to renting to people. My DH and I have tenants (we live on the first floor and our tenants live upstairs). We also did more »

    I do both - cloth diaper and disposables. I prefer cloth, my husband prefers sposies. We use sposies when we travel. When I first started I used Thirsties with Indian Prefolds but my son hated them. O more »

    I pump and drive all the time. It's great and gives me more time at home with my baby and DH. Pumping in the car in a parking lot is a breeze. Like others have said, sit in the backseat so you will be more »
