Holy milk!

Click here to enlarge DS slept almost nine hours last night (IN A ROW). Click here to enlarge He was super tired from daycare where he spends his time watching the kids and not napping. My breasts were crazy full when he finally woke up to eat. Then he ate again two hours later, and again an hour after that.

Then he napped for three hours.

He nursed on one side and then switched to the other where he only nursed a tiny bit before deciding to snooze again.

I just pumped almost four ounces from ONE side because I was in such pain.

Sometimes I am very thankful for my pump. Click here to enlarge

I remember those days. :sigh Well, at least DS is still nursing, but I'd love to have him sleep through the night consistently again.

I do remember those days of feeding him tons, and still needing to pump though. That's how I got my freezer supply. Click here to enlarge

I actually don't check on him when he sleeps a lot because he is a very noisy sleeper (just like DD, and probably me Click here to enlarge). He is always making little noises in his sleep so if I wake up and realize he's been down for a bit, he usually makes a noise so I know he's okay.

And I'm freaked out about supply again. He's decided to consume 4.5 bottles (of approximately 4 oz. each) at daycare. I can consistently pump 4 bottles worth every day, but not 5. I pump 4 x a day at work (really all I can do) and once more at night. I started taking fenugreek today to boost my supply so that I can keep up with this eating machine!
