congrats! I trust your pump is hospital-grade? good luck!
oh yes, it is hospital grade! The lactation consultants at my hospital were really great. I saw at least one of them every day, and they worked with me with all 3 babies while we were there.

Levi was smothered by the other two - he was Baby A on the bottom, so I'm sure he's happy to stretch!

Thanks, everyone.

congrats!!! good job momma. are you on triplet connection?

also--wanted to add that I truly wish I had only pumped until after their due date. My kids were not able to feed well enough from the breast to get full. So we would have to offer a bottle b/c they were hungry but exhausted. THEN I had to pump to empty myself. My kids never had troubl accepting both breast and bottle, so I just wish I had pumped until they were a bit stronger. I think we would have been more successful at bfing. Just my 2 cents.

Congratulations! Those are some beautiful kiddos. They look HUGE for 34 weekers, and triplets too! I second the motion to take it easy and keep the water coming. I used to keep a case of it by the sofa. I never moved from there the first month, and it was easy to monitor consumption by seeing how many bottles I had finished.

I am on TC, and actually, I emailed you about CD a while ago. We're not using them now, but we'll try some prefolds and covers when they get a little bigger.

Thanks for the insight on BF/pumping, also. I have been feeling guilty because I've only put one to the breast once a day, and I know I need to be doing that more both to help my supply issues and for practice for them, but they've just been home a few days and we're still trying to find a good routine. I have tried to be kind to myself and realize I'm giving them a gift, even if we have to supplement so much as well.

Chantel - I'm looking forward to the help with meals. Thank you again!
