    Hi,

    I'm still exclusively expressing for my 10 month old boy. The problem is, that he's now trying to get up onto my lap and grab the milk as it's coming out. Not impressed!

    I used to just plop him down with a load of toys on the floor or on the sofa next to me, but that's just not cutting it any more. He wants my expressing machine and everything that goes with it.:dohh:

    Any tips?

    Thanks.

    :haha: must be a right pain! Pumping is not the most dignified thing without a toddler getting in the way! No tips, but just wanted to say well done for exclusively expssing that long, you must be superwoman or something!

    Could someone look after your little boy, whilst you pump? or pump during his nap times?

    I only express twice a day so it's not really that bad. I was just wondering what others might do. The evening pump is after he goes to bed, but the morning one he's always WIDE awake. Think it's going to have to be distraction, distraction, distraction.... And failing that, cot or high chair...

    Thanks for your thoughts...
