I'm in dublin and have gotten them in dundrum, merrion and Stillorgan, as well as online.

I was in need of some recently and couldn't find then in dundrum so bought the tommee tippee ones and they are identical to the tesco ones for half the price

It's only minor surgery thankfully but I'll have to go under general anaesthetic so it'll take a bit of planning. My orthopaedic surgeon booked me in before consulting the anaesthetist, and they postponed it because they said no way would they put someone 4 weeks pp under a general! I need a frequent flyers mileage card for the hospital at this stage
These ones are only 1oz but I just use 3 if I pump 3 oz. then Once the cubes are frozen I pop 3 cubes in a sandwich bag (that's the average feed my girl is taking) and I can wash the pot and use again. They have a silicone base that the tommee tippees don't have so it's handy enough getting them out. Sounds like more work than it is - honest!

Gosh I'd say you'll be delighted to get it out of the way. Hopefully you'll be sorted soon

My baby is 4weeks today and has been throwing up after and sometimes during every feed for 3days now? I took her to the doc yesterday for some other issues and she just said its normal.

She is being exclusively bf and gaining weight no problem. She has some issues with her mouth like class 4 lip tie and they suspect tongue tie also.

I'm just wondering is there anything I can be doing to try and make feeding easier for her?

Lilly's 24 weeks now. The last 4 nights she has been feeding through the night. Exhausted isn't the word!! Does anyone know if there is a sleep regression or growth spurt at this time?? Also, I can usually express 200 ml on morning no probs after she feeds... But the last couple mornings can only express around 125 mls! I'm hoping my supply isn't decreasing??!

According to the wonder weeks app, there's a developmental leap between weeks 23-26 Sligo. Our fella went through it a few weeks ago and we had a week of waking up a bazillion times a night but it stopped just as suddenly as it started, thank god

O I really hope it stops soon. Husband now on at me again to start giving a bottle of formula during the night... I have to say I'm very tempted.... Going to hold of another few nights and see I think.... X

I picked up a box of the medela bags in Boots today and so far so good. They're expensive enough (€13.99 for 20, non reusable) but super easy to use, and I can see myself building up a decent stash of ebm with them.
I used the Lansinoh bags from mothercare, they're fantastic, they have two seals and I found them easily to wrap around the medela pump.

My girl did that for a while on one side only. I changed positions on that side and she stopped. They were proper projectile vomits, every bit of the feed would come up. Could be worth a go? I've no experience with the tongue tie but some other ladies might have some advice .

My bubs is five weeks tomorrow and she's been quite pukey on and off since she was born. Once they're gaining weight, not in distress, and feeding well its nothing to worry about, it's called a "laundry issue"! Definitely more distressing for me and the three changes of clothes a day I often go through

@ xalot, great to know that Mothercare have the lansinoh ones, must check next time I'm in

Kaylami, would you consider visiting osteopath? Did wonders for my little man (15 weeks). There are plenty that specialise in babies.
