sky - glad your LC is great. I hope Thurs appt is helpful. I know my LC is very adamant that I avoid pain and injury so I think you're on the right track with pumping as needed for now.
Jill - just have to say I'm so thrilled you're only having to supplement a couple of oz of formula a day.
My babies keep making progress! I've also concluded I really don't like tandem nursing. I like that I can keep them both happy at the same time but I'm not a huge fan of the football hold and I feel out of control like I can hold my breast and their head and it kind of creeps me out. I don't know if this is related but I was assaulted in the past and it wasn't a huge issue with DD, just a few times when I'd have nightmares and wake up and she was latched on and it would be really horrible but really I just for that or another reason just can't get too into TN. Maybe later but for now also I'm working on the SNS-like feeding to get them off bottles and I feel like avoiding bottle preference is more important anyway.
I also have a LC appt Thurs. My mom is here this week helping (oh my so different than the stressful "help" my in -laws were providing) and she's going to my appt with me to see if she can learn any ways to help during the week. I am remaining fairly optimistic that we'll get the hang of nursing in the next few weeks, or longer if necessary but I think they'll get it. Their averages keep going up for removal and I've actually broken even with supply overall the last 5 days.
