I'm so impressed with my boobs...did you know they can tell time?! Every work day, 8:45, 11:45 and 2:45 (I try to pump at 9, 12, and 3) they remind me that it's time to pack up and go pump. Too bad I forgot my pads this AM and the little 'reminder' (random LD) caused a slightly embarrassing situation. ARGH!


Speaking of smart boobs...I'm impressed that they "know" to still produce the same throughout the day even though I'm not nursing Henry all night long anymore. I was really worried that my daytime production would plummet when he started STTN. Ok...so he's not STTN but I'm just not letting him nurse every hour at night anymore. Poor little guy is having to make it 3 hours. I'm such a mean mom! :)

Isn't it amazing?


Back in residency on my nephrology rotation, we had a saying, "the dumbest kidney is smarter than the smartest nephrologist."


We could adapt that to "the dumbest breast is smarter than the smartest doctor/lactation consultant"!!


That's why, when at all possible, it's better to let baby and breasts figure out the supply and demand thing :)


Sorry you forgot your pads today though ... hope it dried quickly!
