Re: Supply and Pumping Issues
with Bfwmomof3. Please don't switch to EP unless you have to- so many of the issues you're experiencing go away as baby grows and supply calms down a bit.
Is there any chance that you could just shelve the bottles and pump for a while, and nurse exclusively? Take a week or two off from the church choir, let someone else run the errands. I bet that's all it would take to smooth over the rough patches.
A lot of moms get sucked into pumping so that someone else can "help" feed the baby. But the people who really help you are the ones who will cook you a meal, walk your dog, bring you takeout, wash your dishes, fold your laundry, shop for groceries when your fridge is low, etc. Freeing you to focus on nursing- that's REAL help. Freeing you from nursing the baby so that you can go slave over the pump and maybe scrub the toilets... That's not.
