Trying to find a balance.

I was so obsessed about pumping enough so that I would only have to supplement with my own milk that I lost sight of what really mattered. Lola was only nursing 4 times from waking to bed time. She didn't want to nurse without the SNS because there wasn't any milk there because I pumped it all away.
I'm not giving up pumping, but I'm going to offer her a breast first.
The most important thing is preserving our breastfeeding relationship. So what if I still have to supplement 3 ounces per day?
