    I want to second what auderey said. You are a supermom! Following your threads, it's clear how hard you're working and how determined you are. Keep it up, mama!

    Thanks auderey and carm. Fortunately I went through all this and more with DD so I know sometimes it just takes a lot of time and persistence and I'm not willing to give up getting my little guys my milk. It is harder though making it for two and also parenting 3 kids vs just having DD to keep happy while I pump.

    Thanks Shelly! I've just been posting in the pregnant mamas thread but I've not really disappeared. We're very thankful to have them.

    They were born July 26th and were due August 27th so they were 35w3d. They were in NICU 13 days and just came home August 8th.

    We are making progress! I met with my IBCLC today and tandem nursed. They got 30 ccs and 22 ccs respectively neither using a nipple shield. They're both still gaining very well and I am pumping over 33 oz /day the last 4 days. I am renting a scale now so I can to pre-post nursing weights throughout the week.
