Every day i get more excited that I get more and more milk. I also have been using hand expression to. I can normally get out about well at least 1 tsp up to 2tsp.
I think i have given up on getting her back to the breast. Its a real struggle for us. Sometimes at bed time she will throw a fit to be put in her crib, so i will rock her in her room, she likes the skin to skin contact(our bellies) and she lays her head on my bare breast, i will always offer her "milkies?" but she always says no. Seeing her drink my milk from a cup now gives me that aww feeling that nursing did. Knowing she is getting the best possiable nutrition.
