I just don't think pumps are nearly as effective or efficient as a baby's mouth, although of course they're totally helpful for things like this. Keep going! Don't give in on the formula, you're doing great!!

: I also think the temp taking might do the trick or even letting her go bare bottomed for a bit that always worked for me!

Also...

You are doing a wonderful job! Lena is soooo lucky to have a Momma who is willing to fight for the best for her girl. You should not have to deal with crappy nurses and peds who don't take the time to research the benefits of BF'ing. If this country wasn't so bassackards you'd be able to get a prescriptioin for the local milk bank... and it sucks that you can't. You shouldn't be babymooning in the hospital to begin with... you shouldn't be struggling to bf and worrying about supply while your coworkers are ep'ing by choice because they just don't like bf'ing...you shouldn't have to stress about house showings and taking care of the dogs while your newborn is in the hospital... you shouldn't be recovering from second degree tears in a fold out chair-bed in a tiny box of a hospital room... you shouldn't be dealing with stupid phone calls from idiotic people who don't have a clue...

But you are dealing with all of that. And it makes my heart break for you and brings tears to my eyes every time I think about the enormity of it all and only one thing makes it ok...

The fact that your beautiful girl is still here with you, and blessed with a mom that cares so much for her and father that is so supportive. Your family is beautiful, and you are so strong.

Stay strong Bobbi. Don't let this get you down. Later on we can cry together about it if you want. Just look at your beautiful babe and relax... you know you are doing everything in your power to help and what you can't control you just can't control. Serenity prayer style.

Just thought I'd pop in and update anyone who is wondering how they are doing. Lena and Bobbi are FINALLY back at home and last I heard doing well.

UPDATE!

Mom and baby were doing well when I saw them on Friday. She has some donor milk she's using so that's great for them. They should be coming home today so hopefully she'll update later. I took her some Mother's milk tea (and got some for me too), so here's hoping it helps us both! She's just a doll btw, so little and just beautiful hair!
