Well, we had to give him formula

I made it almost 10 months before he had any, so I guess that is something. Click here to enlarge I just couldn't keep up with the little guy anymore - case in point I had to pump this AM to get enough to send him to daycare today (20 oz. to daycare each day). I have pumped only about 3.5 oz. for tomorrow's milk so far today. I can usually get about 12 oz. total, but not the full 20. We only have one bottle's worth in the freezer also. I'm taking fenugreek and blessed thistle every day and drinking tons of water/eating oatmeal, and still can't get enough.

I definitely did better this time than last time - with DD we started to supplement at 2 weeks and were done nursing at 6.5 months.

We will keep nursing for at least the next two months until he's a year, but I'm guessing he's going to be getting a bit more formula as time goes on - if I want to leave the house without him for more than 2 hours, he has to have formula.

He was up nursing 2x last night during the night and was up nursing again at 6 AM, so I think he's just a piggy. Click here to enlarge 20 oz. a day at daycare, plus nursing at least 4 x a day at home = piggy baby.

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.
