Re: Need your help mommies...
Oh and I missed a couple things...
Your milk supply should not be affected by lack of sleep (if so, I would have run dry long ago). However, stress can make it more difficult to letdown, so do what you need to do to relax while you pump. Also make sure to eat well (not that it affects your milk so much as it affects your overall health) and stay hydrated.

I'm "off" (still doing some work, but no classes) for the summer, and I was actually a little sad to pull him out because he has so many friends there. It really depends on the baby, but I think starting daycare is pretty easy with an older infant. They are a little more independent than younger babies and often don't have as much separation anxiety as older babies.
At what age will the babies adapt to the daycare easily?
I won't lie - it's really hard at first, but once you and your baby settle into your new routines you might find that you both really enjoy some of the changes. I love being home with my son, but I also love spending some time at school, interacting with students and faculty and engaging in academic discussions that you won't find at home. It is hard work, but it is very possible to go to school and raise a happy, healthy baby.
