Thanks to you for support, and my 2 new best friends Dom and Medela!
Every day i get more excited that I get more and more milk. I also have been using hand expression to. I can normally get out about well at least 1 tsp up to 2tsp.
I think i have given up on getting her back to the breast. Its a real struggle for us. Sometimes at bed time she will throw a fit to be put in her crib, so i will rock her in her room, she likes the skin to skin contact(our bellies) and she lays her head on my bare breast, i will always offer her "milkies?" but she always says no. Seeing her drink my milk from a cup now gives me that aww feeling that nursing did. Knowing she is getting the best possiable nutrition.
aw! congrats! i hope i can get that good in the coming months!
Well i started pumping on May 10th so it has taken us a bit to get here. I was taking fennugreek and blessed thistle then i got the dom and it has taken off, i ran out of the herbs so for the last fre weeks it was strickly dom. I has been a long bumpy road but its smoothing out! My new goal is to make at least 16 oz. Enough for 2 bottles. Then my next goal will be 3 so i can get her off the formula!!
Congratulations! :clap It is great to see your hard work pay off. Thanks for giving us all the numbers, too. That will be helpful to other mothers. :gvibes
Yesterday i got 12 1/8 oz! Yesterday when i woke up my left breast(my smaller one...lol) was leaking! this is wonderfull. this morning i got out about 1 oz less than yesterday, but my last pump was at 11pm and ususally its at about 9:30 so i think thats why. i pumped more yesterday than i normally do so mabe i will have more milk today!
Awesome News!!! great work keeping track and updating in such detail!! :clap:clap:clap
Congrats mama! Hey, I just ordered some dom... the 10mg pills. How do you know how much to take? Thanks so much, and way to go on your pumping progress!!!
Good job mama! Today starts my pumping journey.... I hope to have her back by fall... lets hope! I want to keep track like that too... seems like a good way to keep motivated!
