...without any sort of formula supplementation! Somehow, some way, my once dysfunctional set of mammary bags has provided all of the milk that my boy has needed for a whole week now and we see no signs of going back so far (fingers crossed!).



Sorry to put the brag hat on, but for those who've followed my difficulties with nursing you KNOW this is a big deal for me. I've not only been breastfeeding for just shy of three months (and counting!) but it looks like we're successfully phasing out all formula and can call me a truly EBFing mama. AND, I'm producing enough excess milk to start building a real milk stash in the freezer so that Miles only gets BM when I'm not home, too, which is a victory in itself since I was not responding very well to the pumping until recently. I don't know if it was the herbs, pumping, oatmeal, or just me finally relaxing , but this moment has been twelve weeks in the making and I'm so thankful. And it's all been sooooo worth it - tired nights, hours stranded on the couch, sore nipples, mastitis...everything. Nursing my baby boy with his head nestled in the crook of my elbow and his tiny fingers wrapped around my thumb is one of the tenderest moments that this life has offered me .

So yeah....I'm a happy girl today!

Thats wonderful! I know the feeling! I am not sure if you saw any of my posts on the breastfeeding board, but i had to supplement as well. Avery has been 100% EBF for about 4-5 weeks now, and i am so happy! Way to go!!!!

Question- when do you pump? I don't produce for the pump but would really like to build up a stash too, just not sure when to pump!

I don't pump often, but when I do, I usually do it after he's eaten. I nurse from one side per feed, so I will pump that side after he's finished.
