Hmm...I wasn't thinking that I was really gone for 11 hours, that is a lot. I think he was also going through a growth spurt during the 18 oz day since the day before he was nursing every hour to hour and a half. That is so exhausting!
I do feel my letdown happen but he seems comfortable with it now (when he was younger he'd come off, cough and I'd spray him) but maybe I can let him off when it happens to see if that improves things.
And yep, in TN! It's a beautiful state although I'm closer to Knoxville on the other side of the state.
