    Look for us in the upcoming September 2011 issue of LLLGB's magazine, "BREASTFEEDING MATTERS" as well as LLL's upcoming booklet on relactation!

    I have been pumping every 2 hours or so when I can't feed him and it seems slowly the milk supply is coming back. I know this won't be a quick fix, but I'm happy that something is coming out at all.

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP, ADVICE AND ENCOURAGEMENT. I was very frustrated, crying, and ready to throw in the towel, but in the back of my mind, I knew as soon as I fed him the first bottle of formula and as soon as I started to feel better I would have regretted not hanging in there a little longer. This is tough, but SOO rewarding and I know I'm doing the healthiest thing I can for him.
    This just totally made my day. Way to go mama!! It is SO worth it.
