I feel absolutely zero, none, nada competition. PLEASE know that. I don't want to be a step ahead or even think about it that way. I am so, so happy when I hear your success. Please don't hesitate to tell me everything. I am thrilled when I hear from you. Your 3 oz had nothing to do with my mood the other day.

I have great news today . 1) I think I can say that I successfully averted having a period. It was 28 days on Halloween. I still haven't spotted or anything. . 2) LO slept through the night last night from 9pm to 5:30am. I got up at 3am to pump. I pumped 3 oz!!! The one other time that he slept through the night I got 1.25 oz -- that was at least a week ago, maybe more. When he woke up at 5:30, I fed him and used no formula. It felt so wonderful. After I fed him, I pumped and got nothing but a couple of drops from the side he nursed and 1/2 oz on the side he did not. (I would have offered both sides, but it was kind of an experiment to see how much I had "made" since 3am on one side and how much was "left" on the side he nursed.)
Additionally, he has not been taking as much from the SNS. Me, having so little faith, had thought that he was not eating as well. Maybe he is getting more than I think from me!!!
The lactation consultant is coming over today to look at his latch. I hope that she can fine tune our technique to make lo my best milking machine.
