Hi all!

I've been a little MIA lately and my posts have been sporadic at best - nothing significant going on, just busy in life with a 6 week old. :smileyhappy: I came back to work yesterday so I'll actually have more time to check out the board. Ironic, huh?

Nathan is doing awesome. He's sleeping fo 5-6 hours during his first stretch, nurses and is back down within 30 min and follows it up

Sounds like you are adjusting well and I am so impressed that you already have a schedule!

Aww I am glad things are going well. I am dreading going back to work myself. Especially since Noelle does not really have a schedule and is certainly not sleeping that long. I am definitely jealous.

That's fantastic you have a schedule! I'd love to have one but as a stay at home mom it's actually really hard to develop one because my own day is so unstructured...

Going back to work is always so hard, but I'm glad the transition seems to be going well for you guys. It sounds like Nathan is doing great! Are you doing anything in particular to keep up your supply? I go back next week and will be pumping also.

I have the sitter text me when she's about ready to give Nathan a bottle so I can pump at around the same time. I've been pumping about 3 times a day, usually around 3 hours apart. Seems to be working so far. Hope it keeps up.
