Took a break from pumping, today. Lola nurses so much better when I don't pump, I'm not sure why. She nursed much more frequently, and even refused the bottle once! And she went from 10:30 - 3 pm without a bottle, just 2 nursing sessions. (This is a baby who eats little meals frequently, so that is an accomplishment!)
She's also skipped her middle of the night bottle the last few nights, instead only nursing between the hours of 10ish - 6ish.
The homeopathic "breast help" drops have helped with the nipple pain/breast tenderness I've been dealing with. I'm sure not pumping helped also.
Waiting on some delicious lactation cookies to come in the mail. :)
How exciting. I'm seriously giddy inside to hear all the progress! You're a rock star! <3ReplyDelete
