So nice to have all this support
It's been 11 days since I've endeavored to relactate. I stopped eating oatmeal, and it doesn't seem to be affecting anything (yay I hate oatmeal!). I'm still mostly pumping. I nurse him first thing in the morning, and then he sleeps for a long time. The rest of the day, I pump, and get 2-4 oz. everytime. I've been trying to pump every two hours, and once or twice through the night. So far, we've only had to supplement one or two bottles of formula throughout the day, so we're getting close to our goal!!!!
He's officially a month old now! His dirty diapers (we switched to cloth) have been less thick and smelly like formula dirties and more yellow and watery like bm dirties. And I'm closer to my 6-weeks PP date, so that I can start exercising again. I lost twenty pounds, but gained another 5 back! I guess with breastfeeding, I still give myself the excuse of "eating for two" lol.
