(I often call him Attack Baby... he looks like a crazy chicken going in for the kill), which is great for him, but ouchie for me.
Glad to hear things are getting somewhat better Tofu, though I hope your pain subsides soon. SO glad for you Zenma that there's some improvement! I think you are wise to be flexible about feeding as you need to.
On our front here, I am still comfort nursing (ha ha ha - 'cuz she ain't comforted) usually once a night, pumping and supplementing, and feeding by bottle. I have a blocked duct AGAIN. Ouch. So painful. I am trying to decide whether to continue. My psychiatrist and midwives all think I should just stop it, and feed my baby by supplement. I am getting there, let me tell you, what with all the pressures and everything....but.....I still wish dd#2 and I could at least nurse some of the time, dang it! She is still crying and frustration at the breast, although she is interested in it. I think I may ask for one more round of help from a lactation expert, and if it doesn't work then that's enough. I have so many mixed emotions about this. I keep swinging from one side to another. Oh well. I am grateful and giddily excited as I see dd#2 growing so nicely getting her combo feeds. I am grateful for the supplement because I can't seem to get nursing off the ground. 'Nuff said.
