Step 3...last minute advice?

Totally off-topic, but I think that seems a lot for over a year old. Who am I to judge though?

When my son turned 1-yr-old, we gave him whole milk and he got stored breastmilk of mine for some occasions from the deep freezer. I think we made it to 13 months with that store. He also ate regular food.

Is your son eating food?

I don't know how you are rested if he nurses every 1-2 hrs 24 hours a day. I would be absolutely exhausted!

Best of luck with your test.

I figure there's a huge range of normal with breastfeeding, just like everything else - sleeping, weight, talking, etc. I hear he's exactly like I was, loves to nurse and doesn't need much sleep. My son eats lots of solids! Everything we eat, he eats.

PS, sorry for hi-jacking asunshine, good luck on your test!! Hopefully you're done and resting by now :)

I hear that on ranges of normals. To be honest - I would have paid someone if my son could have breastfed longer. I was devastated when he wouldn't anymore.

I pumped during my recent step 3 - no problems at all! You can access your locker or even leave the building during your breaks if you want.

It's also pretty fast, especially day 2 with the cases.

Good luck!

Thanks! Long story, but I had to reschedule due to technical issues on the company's part. Really hadn't been planning on that. Argh!

I'm glad you hijacked! It's an important topic! My experience (at least from day 1) is that you can access your locker and even your phone. My site does not have more than 1 bathroom, so I wouldn't suggest pumping there unless you really want to make some people mad. The employee break room or your car might work. Also, my center had no fridge available FYI. If you're a fast test taker and your kiddo isn't using you for primary nutrition, I think those are good signs. I pumped during Step 1 (baby was 11mos), and was kind of miserable since I am a slow test-taker and get engorged pretty quickly. It can be done, just double up on the nursing pads and bring some extras IYKWIM.
Last Edit: by .

If he doesn't drink anything else, then you probably still do produce more than other women at that age. Good to know you can for sure pump etc. Good luck to you (and to asunshine on day 2, whenever that is!)
