Re: Looking for support :(
I'm sitting here reading this at a point where my LO has been asleep on me for 2 hours - since 6pm. This is my world. There's no putting her down for a nap or the night anywhere but on a warm body. At night it's common that she wakes 10X to nurse. Or sleeps for hours with my boob in her mouth and cries out when she realizes her mouth has gone slack. Amazing to watch her mouth grope its way back, eyes still closed. She's 9.5 months old. I don't know how long before this all changes and while I'm exhausted, sometime frustrated, I'm also proud of my choices.

Yeah sorry here's where I have to say DD does take bottles of expressed milk when I'm at work. We have a great nanny who completely gets a BF mom and AP - she also lets DD take naps on her and always attends to her immediately if she cries. But that wasn't the point. The point is that ther are lots of us who are content with being cave mamas. Even if sometimes we dress up and play working mama.
P.S. you are doing a great job!
