(this is when we need boob smilies)
I just read this riveting thread from beginning to end, I'd never seen it before. The little things I have to add:
*Lisa, Orion is lovely. Ii love his little sensuous movie star mouth
*You are one awesome mama, being so dedicated and dealing with so much hardship ~ from all the pre-birth inlaw shit to the birth and now this. If one believes in children choosing their parents, Orion must have made sure to pick himself the very best
*veganmamma may I please marry you if you are ever available? I will play governator and mow the whole line ahead of me down in one fell swoop just to get to you first. Got zee accent too. Or will you please post some very unattractive stuff about yourself, so I can start believing that you're for real?
*I have a measly cup A that has over the years grown to cup B/C depending on preg and nurse status. One of my boobs has an inverted niipple, and both my babes reject it. That means that I nurse a 4 yo and a 3 mo on one pretty modest boob. They both thrive and always have. Moral: even if you don't see it come out, and even if you can't really feel it in there (I do get engorged, but only if nobody nurses for 4 hours and that never really happens), it somehow does make its way to baby.
*If Orion drinks and generally seems content with it (and you are a pro now at interpreting that) it doesn't really matter how many diapers you get. I mean, what is a wet diaper? I CD in fitteds and cpf's, so I get 10 a day, but that would only equal like 4 sposies kwim?
*btw what does the lower prolactin thing mean? That there's less milk? Willem nurses all nite too, and sometimes it drives me nuts. Is there a psychological effect of that, too? Like, does prolactin affect mood? tia
