So great to hear how everyone (and their babies) are doing!I have a question about block feeding. When I BF (which is only a couple times a day at this point, but we're getting there), I usually only feed Evan on one breast. That way, I know he's getting the hind milk. Of course, this means my other breast doesn't get emptied, and by the time the next feed comes along it's really full. Should I just leave it (hoping it will regulate itself), or should I pump it afterward even for a shorter period than I would normally?
ETA: Also, to make things more consistent, should I only pump from one side when I'm doing a pumping session (and not BFing)? That way, I would be alternating breasts, like I would if I were BFing exclusively?
Today is David's 1st Birthday. I can't believe how fast the year has gone. It seems like yesterday I brought him home from the hospital. Yesterday was his party and we had a blast. I was a little worried as we had a lot of snow here in Indy but it wasn't too bad. We had 4 kids and 7 adults come.

Alyssa - Since you are pumping milk for Evan, I would say take advantage of the full breast and pump (even if it's not that long) from the side he doesn't nurse from to get the milk.
