Hi ladies! This is my 1st post. We recently found out we are expecting #2 in October and this is one of the 1st places I knew to visit! With Maya I just knew I would BF and it would be perfect. Yeah right! Maya was in the NICU after birth so I pumped and then when she came home we tried latching with no luck. So I continued to pump but then got so depressed with all the pumping I eventually stopped. It is something I so regret.
So now that I am expecting #2 I know that I want BF to work! My issues are that I don't really have that great of a support team here! My dh is wonderful but he just doesn't get it! Know what I mean. Then yesterday my Mom said "So are you going to try and BF again?" I said "Yes definitly!" My Mom then goes into "Ok Sarah you will be a machine and you also have Maya to take care of!" WTH?! I told her flat out that I really would like her to be supportive and that WAS NOT supportive! Jeez! So can you please tell me I can do this! LOL
Also something I am concerned about is......With Maya I had to pump from the get go. My colustrum was barely the amount of a pencil erasure (sp?) when I pumped. How will that sustain my baby? Also my milk did not come in until 6 days later! Is that ok if it happens again?
Thanks for reading this novel! LOL
