I am getting lazy...my son was born 9/26 he was a preemie but a big boy at 8.8 i didnt give him any formula in the hospital, but when we got home my boobs were soooo sore that I gave him formula that night...fast forward. I have a 2 yo son and I watch my sisters daughter who is now 3 months old during the day. I have taken to mostly formula feeding during the day because when ds would eat it would take him 45 mins or so on each side to be satisfied, anyone with 2 other little kids knows that is impossible....he likes to comfort suck during the day and he nurses a little here and there but mainly he is formula all day and breast all night. I still have alot of milk my boobs stay full and I can squirt a stream a long distance anytime I choose...my problem is i would really realle like to get him back on the breast full time...i feel like a cop out, it is just so hard to juggle three kids while BF'ng all day. I have no access to a pump, the place that rents them is out and even if they had some we just cant afford it (well we could if DH didnt waste all our $ but that is a diferent story) I try to hand express but I just get so sore really quick.
There is no LLL here the closest is about an hr away and I have no way to go to the meetings, i have no health ins so talking to the LC at the hospital is out...
