I'm bucking the system today. I told DH that when Rowan resists the bottle then he is done. Period. We do not offer anything unless he asks for it. The only exception is for when it's been 3.5 hours. After he eats 1.5 ounces in a single feeding I will offer the breast. So far Rowan has eaten 1oz for average of every hour and a half and nursed for 10 minutes. He is napping now, we'll see how he does this afternoon.

It's just that after what a terrible day yesterday was I think we need to kind of have a restart day. Tomorrow is another visit so we'll know pretty fast if this is the wrong approach. I am also reducing the number of pumps I do during the day. Every 3. I have 10 oz frozen in the freezer with 6 oz waiting to eat in the fridge. I am pumping anywhere between 2-4oz at a time. Hopefully this will bring more balance to my life.
