I guess I'm looking for some support. This EPing thing is SOO hard!!!!!! My youngest is 11 days old today and I have been good up until now, out producing him, but my mom has also been here the whole time doing all of the running of my other 2 kids and going to the store and such for me as I can't yet drive due to c-section. So I've had plenty of time to pump and even now I find it hard to pump every 2 hours. There's usually a 4-6 hour period during the day that I just can't pump during due to taking care of baby (feeding/diapering/rocking) or my 2 older children. My husband works 3-11. My mom is leaving tomorrow. How do you ladies find the time???? I REALLY want this to work and will do as much as I humanly can to make it work, but I do have other responsibilities as well. I was unable to BF my other 2 children and didn't know EPing was an option. I was devastated. The hospital actually started me pumping the night I had my LO this time due to latch issues and it has created a good milk supply, which I didn't have with the other 2. I m very excited by this. I can tell my supply is dropping a bit from what it was in the hospital, but like I said, I am still outproducing him for now. A growth spurt definately scares me though. Any advice for how to do this and be sucessful?
