    Empty breasts make milk quickly so they can fill up. The fuller your breasts are the slower they make milk. If they reach their storage capacity (different for every woman) they basically stop altogether. If you go too long they stop making milk.

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.
