Hi everyone! It has been a while since I have posted anything here. BF is going great for us. I just passed my 6 month goal this past Monday!
Well, Monday I had to have emergency surgery to have my appendix removed and to top that off I had mastitis last week. Yea, it has been a couple fun weeks... Oh yea, and I had to pump and dump for 24 hrs after the operation. I dumped about 20 oz. That just killed me!
My supply has dipped some and I was wondering if it was because of the mastitis and having to go in for surgery.
I am on medical leave for 2 weeks. During this time I plan on pumping every hour during the day when he is at daycare. DC only get the breast at night so I know that will help too. Is there anything else I can do? I might leave the baby home with me next week so I can nurse all day instead of pump but I need to get my freezer stash back up and it also depends on how I am feeling.
