Still EP'ing?
 
John will sometimes use me for a pacifier, but that's all. so I am still exclusively pumping. Most days we are in a pretty good groove, but other times I regret so much that I can't just sit and nurse my baby.
Anybody else? How are you doing?

I soooo understand that. I am still pumping for now :) I'm gradually spreading out my pumps. I hope to get to one pump every 6 hours. I just want to see how it goes. Curiosity, mostly, lol

I am going to be quitting as unfortunately my postpartum depression meds aren't safe to take while nursing :(

Oh that's terrible! :( Are there no other meds that you can take? My midwife wanted me to take medication while I was pregnant in order to stave off post-partum anxiety. She said it was also safe to take while nursing. It works for PPD as well.

I second asking for meds that are safe while nursing. I'm sorry that you may have to stop. We are now EBFing with a pumping maybe 2 times a week if that. I've only used 1 bag of frozen milk so far and that wasn't really needed.

I pump while at work and nurse when home. Today Ellianna guzzled 18 ounces in bottles :o Usually it is only 14. Ughh - 18 is getting hard to get.

I'm limited to what med I can take for my PPD because of my seizures. It really only left me with two options. Lexapro or Prozac. I am not a prozac fan so chose the lexapro. My supply has been taking a dive lately anyway and it was a huge struggle. I could never build up a stash I couldnt even make enough to fulfill his needs daily and had to supplement. It wasa long hard fought battle and i feel horribly guilty as little man was wanting to try and nurse this morning as i was so engorged I'm sure he could smell it and I had to not let him and oh how he pouted. Broke my heart.
