So precious! Look how much she has already grown! Is it getting any easier? I hope you are getting some rest and getting into a routine. I breastfed until Madeline was 13 months. She pretty much was not interested after that- and my supply was gone. I think I pumped until she was 11 months and then backed off a little bit. Pumping wasn't bad for me. I think it was because bfing was so painful at first that it toughened me up. I know some people who thought it was too painful to pump. If I didn't work, I probably would've only pumped at morning and night to keep my supply up. I was obessed with having enough milk! I had like 400 oz in the deep freezer at one time. At three weeks, I started giving her a bottle at one feeding in the evening because she was hungriest then and my supply was lowest. I found myself feeding her nonstop for three hours! The bottle was the best thing ever! It made her full and gave me a break! You might think about that if you need a break. I used the Nuby Soft Touch natural bottles, also the Tommee Tippee. I found they were closest to the breast. But I know every baby is different. That was probably way more than you wanted to know. You can delete after you read if you don't want everyone to read this. I'm praying for you!
