Ok, I have a 4 month old and we have had quite the journey. I am a single mom (right now, my husband is deployed for a year) with no family close by with a colicy baby that had tongue tie and couldn't latch well. Nobody noticed this in the hospital and I fought my way through the first 6 weeks of breastfeeding with bleeding, cracked nipples and many tears shed. Then I finally found out about tongue tie and told my lactation consultant, that I thought my son had it.

Wow, you have been through a lot! How are you doing? Are you staying reasonably sane? Just remember that no matter how long you keep pumping, you are doing more than a lot of people do and you should be very proud. I hope that you are having some luck building your supply and that this board is able to help you. You are definitely not alone! Keep us posted on how you are doing!

Wow! I am so glad to hear that somebody is in the same boat! It's great to know you're not alone! I am determined to make it to the 6 months, but right now I am not sure I'll make it. If I can't get my supply back in the next two weeks I don't think I can do it.
