Ah - the dreaded Barbie. I'm not going to feel too sorry for you. I have three boys!
I tend to pump for too long probably. It's my computer time and I get a little carried away at times. 30 minutes maybe?
Today I didn't top them off after two of their feedings which was a big step. Only 5 ounces left in the freezer. Wondering if I'm going to make them go cold turkey or let some formula in for the time being. Started a little rice cereal yesterday (which they loathed) so the sunshiny poops will be a thing of the past anyway, I suppose.
Ped has generally been reasonably supportive of breastfeeding up to this point. He's middle of the road, I suppose. He has a preemie himself and I know his wife is pumping. He's right across the street, takes our insurance (good doctors here in NYC don't tend to take any insurance), is affiliated with a great hospital and doesn't have a hateful bedside manner. So he's a keeper, for better or for worse.
Would love to hear what you have to say about solids, obviously.
I really can't express how helpful you've been...
