How is it going?

We are still going. I introduced the bottle the other day because I go back to work tomorrow and she did ok. She also took a binkie for the first time last night, before she would just gag on it.

I have a decent stash in the freezer but wish it were more. I have fissures on both nipples but they are slowly healing.

I haven't pumped a thing, and baby's not yet had a bottle. I think I'm waiting until she's about 8 weeks and I *guess* I should get on the whole pumping thing. I'm totally not motivated this time!

1500 is awesome! I usually have a supply like that by now. Right now I have just over 200 frozen ounces.

I wish I had a bit of over supply. I have no frozen and I usually do by now. Can't seem to find a good time to pump and Arabella doesn't seem to like a bottle too well.

We had to stop due to milk allergy. I had 400oz in the freezer, we currently have him on 6oz of BM a day plus 18-22oz of soy. He really can't tolerate more than 6oz and sometimes he will nurse in the middle of the night after a feeding if he seems hungry still.

It's going better. Not sure if Michael has a lip tie, in addition to oversupply/forceful letdown. We've had our share of issues once again. Thank goodness for my DH, who is such a huge supporter and protector of the bf relationship.

We only have a few ounces in our freezer stash so far. I'm not sure when the best time is to start a stash since I don't want to make the our issues worse. I guess I need to research this.

Breastfeeding is good. It's been smooth from the start, I guess. Only problem I'm having is that my 18mo takes advantage of me when i'm nursing. He knows i can't chase him around, so he gets into everything while the baby is eating

It's going fine here. Nursing two can be a bit challenging at times. I have tons of milk so that's good. I have maybe 50oz frozen, I really only pump with my hand pump when I get too full on the days my toddler doesn't nurse as much.

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"
