Hi everyone

Just thought I'd pop back and say hello...

I was very active on the board up to about a year ago, whilst I was pumping for DD number 1. We exclusively pumped successfully for 15 months.

Well, DD number 2 arrived a week ago... And so far so good - she's breastfeeding :-) So there is hope for subsequent babies! I'm really enjoying it and it's certainly easier than the pumping!

So much respect to all you ladies who are pumping and hope it continues to go well! And although I'll probably pop back occassionally, I'm hoping it won't become a regular thing... lol

ttfn

Hi Dawn *waves*

Glad to hear EPing is going well for you again! Did you choose to EP this time, or was baby's choice?

Chris,


I struggled with the decision for awhile when pregnant, but in the end, I chose to EP.

That's great that you chose it in on your own terms!

And great that Adelaide's getting some BM - that's the only thing that makes me want to break out the pump, to give Charlotte some....

Since Jacob was born & I'm now back at work I'm pumping 3x/day. Kaleigh has asked for mommy's milk a couple of times... each time I give it to her in a glass she takes a drink then spits it out! I don't think I could entice her to eat some if I tried. Though she has *Tried* to nurse 4x and one time she got milk and gave me a funny look!

Now I just laugh when she asks about having momma's milk!

Congrats on the arrival of your DD, Chris!



I think we may have crossed paths here a little last year...I started EPing in August of 09 and spent quite a bit of time here then.



It's wonderful to hear that you're successfully BFing Emily. Gives us all hope for subsequent babies! Oh, but don't tell my DH I mentioned subsequent babies. ;-)
