    This is an amazing idea. As a nicu nurse, I would def feel a bit strange knowing a parent was watching as I changed their baby's diaper, but I think its a wonderful idea. At my nicu in NH, we do coupl more »

    arcain- I would not worry an iota about the staining on your pump parts.  What if you tried soaking them with a few drops of bleach even?  And yes, if molecules of sauce got into the milk it wouldnt h more »

    Kar, I used to think that I had some sort of control over when the baby came.  I was all like, "Well, once I hit 38 weeks maybe I'll try some stuff, and by 39 weeks I'm totally going to try it all!!" more »
