Lida, thats great. My guy is really awake when he is awake, but its like, two hours of up for three hours asleep. He seems pretty impervious to anything going around him when he's ready to conk. Lilac, yeah snappis rule. I don't mind the breast soreness, but I am ready to be done with the leakage! Its always just the one side, but I hate generating so much laundry!
Roisin I hear you on the leakage. It's only my left side that does it but I'll leak through my cloth nursing pads. I'm debating going and getting some disposable ones but I don't remember leaking for very long with the my first DD. Probably as soon as I buy a box I'd stop leaking.
Is the milk leaking supposed to go away? I certainly hope so. I'm 8 weeks postpartum and still getting waterfalls that soak all the way down my shirt and onto my skirt. I haven't left the house in weeks (because of my foot) but I will need to make some pads for my bra for when I do. My husband is a bit put off by the leaking, so I hope it goes away.
Ok, so I have a question: is it weird/ worrisome that my 28 month old is obsessed enough with nursing still that now hardly eats regular food? She was getting a little picky before, but now she nurses 3-4 times a day and is often skipping meals. Baby has put on two pounds and two inches so I'm not at all worried about him (I over produce- choke the poor fella every time, spraying leaks constantly), it just seems a little strange that she would revert entirely if she could. I'm fighting everyone on it, even dh- she's really big and really verbal, so its hard for everyone to feel like she still needs babied. But she really, really wants it, in terms of still having access to the milk bar. thoughts?
