So... I know I shouldn't have supply issues, but the social issues are really getting in my way this time - especially the "having two 2.5 year olds" thing.
My mom's only in town for another two weeks, and my husband goes back to work next week. If left to her own devices, baby girl nurses all day long, but won't "finish" a feeding. We burp, we unclothe, we change diapers, I try compressions, position changes. I have to pump a lot of times after she nurses (while she cries, because she's not suckling anymore) because I'm worried about getting an infection. There are few rest periods that aren't on me or someone else, and everyone else in the house insists on giving her bottles the minute I need a break - even then, she's drinking a LOT, I feel. Between 6 and midnight last night, she had 11oz of expressed milk, and I can't keep up pumping like that AND nursing her all day.
Even on days she "just" nurses, she has plenty of diaper output, but I'm trapped on the couch all day and all night. Cosleeping is out of the question without some *serious* life re-organization, and she doesn't sleep in her crib so right now we take turns on the couch with her in a bouncy. It's a nightmare.
I'm on the verge of EPing. Please tell/remind me that she'll turn around soon, or actually start finishing a feed.
