The swim coach (male lol, though thankfully he does have 3 kids and is very much a family man - I have no idea if his wife breastfed, but, I feel he will be understanding when it comes to anything family/kid related...about the only thing he is understanding over lol) has a key but never brings it (our offices use the same key...the same key as all "high resitricted" areas (I use the term loosly lol) in the building. I did hear back from my boss (via email) and she said she is going to ask the swim coach if I can use his office, that I can use her office anytime she is not there (not sure how comfortable I am with that - but her office is REALLY nice LOL) and then she listed 3 other places in the building I could use (one is just barely acceptable, but, I feel like there is more than enough other options). I would prefer to have a specific room just for pumping, but, at least it looks like I will always have something available (if not I will push for a permanent arrangement). One of the rooms suggested is extremly rarely used during the week days so I feel good about that. I am so pleasntly surprised how this is going...wish I had talked to her months ago, I was so stressed over this...apparently for no reason!
Good luck Mammamo! I've been using olive oil on my nips before pumping and it's 10948309804928 times better - I was in SO much pain before! Plus it smells amazing which helps me relax ;-)
I think my supply is up a little bit, my breasts feel semi-full again and Naomi was swallowing when I nursed her earlier. I cannot WAIT until our chiro appointment tomorrow morning - really hoping there is a quick fix and she will be able to nurse better after that! I know it doesn't make us out of the woods by any stretch, but, it would be a step in the right direction!
I am going to take the kids to soccer practce tonight and THEN I am going grocery shopping. I am TERRIFIED!!! Seriously, so scared!!! I have not yet done any major errands without my hubby along! I'm thinking: Ergo for 2yo, Moby for baby, Cart for 4yo...I'm going to get a work out lol...but, I'm too afraid to do it any other way!
