I hope this is in the right folder!
Bryson is the total opposite to what my DD was when it comes to BFing. He loves to eat eat eat and it shows in his weight. Just had his 2m appt and he is 12 lbs 11 oz and 24 inches.Anyway things are going well. I have a good freezer supply started in case something opens up on the job front.
I have one small issue that has just arisen in the last few days. I noticed my left nipple is a weird pink/white color and is a little sensitive. I am not sure whats going on. Any ideas?
While sometimes I have to let JB fuss so that I can shower or put in a load of laundry (or drive somewhere), I generally don't do any "self-soothing" other than that.
EPing is going pretty well here. I pump 4 times a day now. It seems to be working very well for me. I set the schedule up to work well with my work schedule when I go back. That way I will only have to pump once in the middle of my shift. I have even stopped leaking breast milk! I always wear pads when I go out of the house. I so don't need a huge milk puddle on my shirt in the middle of Walmart. LOL But I no longer have to wear breast pads or my lilypadz over night. I pump after DH goes to bed and while Wyatt is sleeping. So any time between 10 pm - midnight. Then I pump again at 6 am after Wyatt gets up for the morning. I haven't leaked in the bed in a long time. It is nice to not have to wear the pads. Sometimes the damn explodes and the milk flows. LOL If I am holding Wyatt and he is crying pretty hard my milk will let down. I think it is a mixture of him crying and the weight of his body resting on my boobs. My boobs are huge so he often rides on top of them. LOL But anyway for the most part the leaking has stopped and my bra feels less bulky these days. I can even sleep naked again! WOOHOO because I hate sleeping in jammies.
I did panic a bit right around the time Wyatt turned a month old. He had a growth spurt and was guzzling milk down like there was no tomorrow. I was terrified I would not be able to keep up and pulled a bunch of milk out of the freezer. Lack of sleep seriously makes people irrational some times. LOL I used up the milk that I pulled out. Now I am slowly trying to restock it. I asked DH to buy me a small freezer that is just for frozen milk. I told him when the frozen milk is gone it can become his frozen pizza freezer. HA HA HA Of course he has to over research everything he buys so it might be a while. Until then my milk will hang out in the freezer next to the Tombstone pizzas. LOL
