3:00pm layed down with Alexis on my bed,both topless.She resisted and screamed i just kept trying to hold her telling her i just want to hold you in a very calm voice over and over,I think she was masd at my breasts because every time she looked at them she screamed even louder. I put a nursing top on.she screamed for a few more min and finnally she gave in. we layed on our sides her head in the nook of my arm against my chest/breast.I just kep stroking her cheek, arm and hair.I undid the nursing clasp on both sides and askede her if she wanted milk. she sat up and pointed to my left breast, i asked her again if she wanted some milk and she went for my breast, she only sucked like it was a straw for a second but she did it a couple times. THen she wanted down off my bed so i figured we can try again tomarrow afternoon. I am real excited because(just a few mo) before when she would see my breasts and scream. So this is progress.
4:30pm double pump 25 min and hand compression.
