I bought 200 large, empty capsules. Rather than driving all over town looking for the stuff already in capsules. Much Cheaper too. The capsules cost me $16CAD for 200 and a great big bag of Brewer's yeast cost me $6CAD. I've gone through most of it, but I think I have enough to fill half of the capsules and then I can take it more durring the day instead of cramming it in two or three discusting sessions. I really believe it's helping.

It's getting better and better. I have pumped out over 1oz today and that's the most ever! Well, I pumped an oz yesturday but I could only get him to nurse twice the whole day. He has nursed at every feeding today and I still pumped over an oz. Dh put it in his sip cup last night, which would be fine but he only drinks about two ounces before bed and he made him a four ounce bottle, so all that wonderfull mama stuff was wasted. I asked him to save the good stuff for his morning sip cup. I am doing breast compressions while nursing and pumping and it really helps. He gulps now and I think it's really helping him to figure out WHY I keep sticking my breasts in his mouth! LOL I am actually getting streams out of my right side and my left side is loosing it's laziness. I can not hold him. He gets so mad and screams if I try. So, I have resorted to staddling over him again. But, it works and if he fusses it's not for long. Plus, if he's not hungry he will just lick and turn his head away. If he's not hungry and I try to hold him, he freaks. He's getting used to me "flashing" him and I think he knows what's coming because he gets all giddy. I'm on the maximum dose of Domperidone, so my body has to start doing it's job. I'm going to take him in to the chiropractor and see if that helps. He has always favored the one side and it's becoming a big problem and I don't want to take him to physio, and our doctor said that if he had'nt improved by six months then she was sending him.<br><br>
It's a lot of work, but I think we finally are getting a system that works. We just do it. He's eating about every 2-3 hours, so I can still run out and get stuff done (I don't think there's a restaurant out there that would be happy with me straddling over my son on the floor with my bb's hanging out. LOL). I have not missed an opportunity to nurse him yet. Dh has been great at holding him off if I'm behind. I can't wait until I can NIP, that will be my greatest accomplishment. I am slowing down more. I am taking the time to enjoy my kids and I'm not rushed to do laundry or go shopping. I figure I have 3 pump sessions to get in after he goes to bed, so I have six hours to get all that stuff done. I have been napping with him in the mornings, and letting him nap in my arms in the afternoon. I actually watched a movie with my dd in one arm and Carter asleep in the other. I can really feel the difference in my moods. I'm much more relaxed and sereal.

Everything is going very well. He is happy to nurse and gets very upset when I stop. I just wish he would let me hold him. I think I have mastered the art of nursing him while he's on his back. Oh well, maybe when he's older and can put himself in a position most comfy for him.

Cjr that sounds so wonderful!!!<br><br>
Maybe you can try to put him on a soft pillow and lay him in your lap, then lean over him with the breast without touching him initially.<br><br>
Maybe once he sees the chiro he will let you hold him!! My the way the chiro we talked about really advocates breastfeeding. She was the vice president for the organization called Birth unlimited which advocates midwifery and natural birth options for women.<br><br>
I love the part of your post where you say your days are becoming surreal....thats so true!!! I totally remember early days being like a floating dream of boobs and babys.
