Soooooooo I have a few things that I would like input on.
First, my DS is now going to bed around 11:30pm and waking anywhere between 4:30am and 5:30am...then every hour till its time to get up. I like this new sleeping habit but I am wondering if this will ruin my supply. He still sleeps in our room in a pack n play right beside my bed.
My next concerns is, my son had his 2month shots this morning. He seemed to have done really well. He was sleeping a lot the first few hours and I started to think that this was all I was going to deal with. I fed him at 1pm and then he fell asleep. He then woke up around 3pm and was screaming like I have never heard before, his leg was bright red and very hot, he was running a fever as well. I tried to nurse him and he wouldn't. I tried and tried and nothing. I called the doc and was told to give tylenol and rock him till he was ready to nurse. At this point we are 4 hours without feeding Finally my husband came home and rocked my son so that I could pump because my breasts were gonna burst. Around 7pm he FINALLY nursed! The pumped milk is still sitting on the counter and I can't bring myself to use it. Will this day affect my supply?
AND one last question, currently there is only a binky in the car when needed and no bottles except once when on a trip and unable to nurse. He hates the binky but hushes in a pinch He takes to a NUK bottle and does well with it. I would like to be able to go to the gym for an hour, go to dinner with a friend....and not bring my little guy. How do I go about pumping for the occasional bottle without affecting my supply?
Ok so I think thats it. Thanks in advance
