    So, back from the LC.... baby gained nearly 2 ozs a day since monday, just eating from the breast with decreasing amounts of supplement each day (250, 150, 50). The LC was blown away and I need to learn to have more faith in myself because WOW.

    She said that from now on I should only pump in the morning and possibly at night if I feel I need to.

    That makes me extremely nervous because now I have no way to judge my supply.... but perhaps it's time for me to relax about this whole thing.

    So awesome, mama!!! WOW indeed!

    Relaxing about the pump, and about measuring intake- yeah, that's one of the hardest things. I stopped needing to use my rental pump after about 2 months, but I couldn't bring myself to return it until my LC called and said she needed it back, for a lady with twins! After that I felt silly about hanging onto it... But I totally understand the self-doubt and worry that can make you want to keep pumping, and keep measuring!
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
