Cooper will open his while he is sleeping and his eyes roll back. Thankfully the ped. in the hospital warned us that it happens and its normal.

Nancy (and anyone pumping for work), I posted on Lindsay's thread, but thought I'd repost here that there is a great video online about maximizing production when pumping.

AFWife. I hope you get some good sleep soon- parenting with two parents will feel like a breeze after this!

Nora had a couple of tired freak outs to fall asleep again today. Why can't she just nurse and fall asleep? A walk in the wrap will do it, but it's not always possible to do. And she doesn't fall for walking around the house- she wants to go outside! I'm getting my exercise, at least

Instead of nursing at keyboard(nak) its pumping at keyboard (I think) which I think sounds tricky

I hope you get some sleep!

I am watching LO stare at her favorite spot on the wall...where the border and the changing table meet...we say she likes the bugs on the border, but I'm sure it's the contrast. She talks to them and stares, it's very cute. We've been at it so much this morning I brought the laptop in here!!! LOL

I need to pump some to have some back up for my mom when she watches her for a couple of hours while I work, but she is sucking me dry by night time, do I just pump and it will increase enough for her???

Kate-I am always constipated. They have me on iron, so that makes it worse. But OB put me on 2 colace pills per day, plus the prenatal and the iron, and it seems to be working, you could try it? It's just a softener not a drug....

Milk supply is at it's lowest at night, it peaks roughly around 4am. Most women find it's easier to pump in the mornings (not at 4am, but sometime in the morning!). And yes if you add a regular pumping session in then your milk supply will adjust.

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

Peony-thanks. I'll wait for her to eat again, and pump right after. I just hope there's enough for her today. She seems to get frustrated when it gets lower and she has to work more for it.

Nancy I thought of you the other day when I was talking to an aquaintence of mine. Her ds was born a week before mine, and she tried and tried to BF him, and he just wouldn't do it. So she had been pumping for him. The LC told her to put him to the breast twice per day, and have him try, it would increase her supply and he would have the opportunity to try...anyway, she'd been doing that for 4 weeks, and one day he just latched on and she's been BF ever since. I don't know if any of that's helpful or not, I don't want to be discouraging, but I thought I would pass it along...

I am supposed to go to work today...instead I am sitting here on MDC and thinking about starting a blog...lol
