Background: About a week and a half ago, I had a minor panic attack when my then almost eight week old son suddenly reduced his number of nursing sessions quite drastically. For about three days, he didn't nurse more than seven times in a 24 hour period, as opposed to his usual ten to twelve. After those few days, my chronic oversupply issues finally seemed to be, well, stabilized anyway. After weeks of block feeding, I actually needed to offer both breasts during a feed a few times! Life was getting good. Then Chance started sleeping longer at night, five to six hours instead of four to five, and that small change has me back at square one. Block feeding, working against gravity, and all that jazz.
So I've given up fighting against the oversupply. Tomorrow I am calling the human milk bank in Denver (closest one to me) and finding out about their donation procedures! I figure that if I'm going to be "blessed" with oversupply AND the ability to pump ridiculous amounts in short amounts of time (with a manual single horn pump no less) I should stop fighting the blessing and let it do some good for someone else's baby. I won't be their top donner as my plan is to pump just once or twice a night but I'll be able to help a little.
