If you think private school is about how great your DC is, go in and mention that you might be having financial troubles. See how fast they show your special butt the door.

The answer is none of the above. I went to private and to public schools. The kids were more or less the same: better dressed and more polite to adults in private school.

[ - ] DB due in October. I will retunr to work after 2-3 months. I want to start stockpiling milk in the freezer ASAP so I feel more calm about having it there. What size containers do I need to freeze pumped milk in and how much will db need while at daycare? Can I freeze glass jars and then send a day's supply to daycare plus a bottle to put it in? I'm baffled by the concept and bf'ing sources never quite go into much detail about pumping. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Use the pump and save bags. You only want to defrost what you will need for one day at a time, so bigger containers may lead to waste. Daycare will not prepare anything for you. Everything must be in the bottles ready to warm and labelled with contents and date. I pumped daily at work and usually used that milk for the next day's bottles. In the beginning I would have one or 2 extra bags that I would freeze. It's alot to try to figure out if you're not in the middle of it. Just relax and wait for your db to arrive (congrats!) and it will all come together. If I have learned one thing from motherhood, it is to only look as far ahead as you can truely handle. If you look too far, things seem impossible. If you only look at tomorrow, it's much more manageable. GL! [ Reply | More ]

Agreed. After a while when I wasn't pumping much, I switched to the bottles, that way at night I could just cap them w/ a nipple and they were ready to take to daycare. I didn't have any surplus beyond a couple of bags and we were fine for 6mos. [ Reply | More ]
