    She has on and off days with STTN. Now that you mention that, she was up all last week during the night because she had two teeth coming in at once. Last night was the first night that she STTN since then. No wonder why I was so engorged!

    Rose got her last bottle of EBM today. I AM feeling relieved that I'm done pumping, but sad that she's not getting mommy's milk while I'm away.

    It will get easier... give it a week or so, and the sadness will fade and the freedom from the pump will be great.

    I'm glad things are going well...
    I'm really trying to get DS on a good solids sked...
    He has done really well the last week so I think I'm going to start soon too!
