Anyone Hear Anything About Playtex Breastpumps?

I know that I have had overwhelming results saying Medella is the best and I have been researching the best price. At Target there is one for $129 but is not recommended for daily use so if I am going to get one, it will probably be the pricier ones. However I have come across one from Playtex that is new. Anyone know anything about this one??? Thanks everyone for your responses!

Travel Discs/ideas for Sealing Playtex Nursers?

I have looked everywhere for the small travel discs for placing between the nipple and the liner for Playtex Drop-Ins bottles. I have a couple (they must have come with my first bottle set), but I cannot find anywhere to buy replacements or extras. Babies R Us and Target don't carry them. I can't find them online. Does anyone have any ideas about how to help keep my bottles from spilling on the ride to day care? I can't believe Playtex doesn't sell travel discs. Every other bottle type has them. So I am looking for any ideas. Thanks!!...

Playtex Drop Ins

Anyone out there use playtex drop ins? How do you feel about them? I am considering trying them for baby #2 thinking that it will be less cleaning of bottles (hubby is not much help!). I will likely use a few different brands of bottles (like dr browns and avent in past.) If you have used them, can you mix the formula and water in the pouch itself or do you have to premix the formula then put it in the pouch? Just curious, thanks!

Help! 3 Month Old Won't Take the bottle...going Back to Work Soon!

I got such great responses last time I posted. I have a breastfed baby who is a gourmet! Any ideas, specifically brands/types of nipples/bottles people have had success with. Basically we introduced the bottle at 4 weeks (Breastflow by the First Years) and she sucked it right down. I waited a week before I gave it to her again and since then it's been a real struggle. She HAS taken it a few times (from me and her Dad) but I can count the number of times on one hand. I'm going back to work (part-time) next week and I'm really worried...

Help, My Arms Are Soooo Tired!!!

Hi There, Wondering if any Mammas out there have one year old seems to want me to CONSTANTLY hold her. Not sure if this is teething or if she is going through seperation anxiety as I have heard babies can do between 12 & 15 months...anyhow, my arm are exhaused from holding her....she weighs approx 22 pds(whew!!!) Has anyone used a sling or something to help them through this. I bought a playtex hip holder, but it actually is more uncomfortable than holding her without it. I don't mind holding her as I know the day...
