Thanks guys, I"m pretty proud of my stash too even though I don't really need it yet. It's great insurance.
Just when I'm complaining about being engorged this morning, I wasn't. My boobs have been feeling so soft.Then I started worrying about supply. Does it ever end? Too much, not enough worry on repeat in my head!
I saw this posted somewhere, though, and check out under six weeks it says...
"At this point you may start to notice that your breasts stop feeling so hard and full before each feed, and stay much softer, but fear not, they are actually producing more and more milk for your growing baby. Don’t assume you’re running out because your breasts are softer between feeds: your body is simply becoming more efficient. It is unfortunate that this change often occurs at the same time as the 6 week growth spurt, which naturally leads mothers to be unnecessarily concerned about their milk supply." But we're at 8 weeks, hmm.
Lyle has been feeding every hour during the day (one side each hour). That combined with his sleeping so much I think he's growth spurting, but the poor little dude also has infected ingrown toenails so he could also be fighting the infection and comfort nursing. Ouch! We're going to the doc tomorrow. I'm hoping 8 weeks is just as good as 2 months for the well baby for insurance purposes.
