I have to brag... I have been EP'ing for 4 MONTHS! for me this is a big deal, with dd I EP'd for about 6 weeks and thought that was great. The best part is although I no longer make enough to freeze, my supply comes and goes so there will be a few days where i'm just barely squeeking by and some days where there is some extra, I have quite a bit in the freezer. Tomorrow I"m going to start doing every other day freezer/fresh milk to rotate the freezer stash. I've never really set a goal on how long I wanted to make it to, but now I feel like I really could make it to a year, since from what I've read they don't really eat any more than they do now, just more at one time fewer times a day. ( of course I dont' remember from DD). I am just really proud that I have committed and followed through with this adventure.

Good job mama! I am still pumping bad sadly I have had to start supplementing with formula. I am just not making enough milk for Wyatt. My supply keeps dropping every time I have a period. I have no idea what is going on. But he is getting mostly breast milk so that is good. I will keep pumping until I dry up or we make the one year mark. Good luck! I hope things keep going well for you. It is hard work but totally worth it!

sorry to hear your supply keeps dropping! No one can say you gave up and every little bit he gets is GREAT!

my father in law was here this weekend and i'd ask him every 4 hours to watch over te children while I pump and he's say again.. you've run out? I'm like ... no thats not how it works. lol had to share
