How is all my relactating friends doing?
What amount are you all up too?
Im still hangin in there. I havent been counting oz latley maybe i will do that tomarrow.
I have been going longer betweek pumpings to try not to pump as many times but trying to get as much out as i can. I have usually been pumping for 30min though to get it all out.
I think i may be having 2 let downs also. My 1st not too long after i start and then i have been trying to go till i dont see anymore drops and then a few more min, well i have noticed that after the drops towards the end i get another let down.
I am only on my 2nd pump for the day and here it is almost 12:30 i feel bad, but sister and her man or ex-man as of today are fighting and she wanted me over to help pack his things and so i am late in my pumping for today.I have been going every 4-5 hrs 6 sometimes during the day, i have been getting anywhere from 4-6oz regular pump sometimes i get 7-8oz and morning pump is usually 8-10oz
I did give in and give her formula because she was sick and throwing up, we had to take her to the hospital and she stayed because she was dehidrated(sp?) and i ran out of milk just after she was discharged and was afraid she would get it again so i bought the ready mix can and gave her a couple bottles of it. She didnt like it. i gave her the bottle and she tasted it and said, what is it? i told her it was formula and she had to drink it cause mommy didnt have enough milk for her. She got mad said no and threw the bottle All i could do was laugh under my breath and tell dh about it and he thought i was just exagerating. She ended up drinking it, but didnt like it. she did the same thing the next day for dh so he finally realized I was for real. Shes 20 mo old now and he didnt think she could talk like that. It may take a min to process what she is saying but she is talking.
