So for the past two months we have struggled to get Desmond to take a bottle because he was only BF when DH was gone. I met someone who was in need of milk and my supply was just sitting in the freezer not being used. So I donated it to her. 350+oz from the month of April. And tonight Desmond decided he would take a bottle again. That little monster...lol

That's okay though because I am going to try and build my supply back up. I have pumped 3 times today and haven't gotten much out, BUT I will not give up!

On the up side, I do have my freezer back Smile

How great you were able to find someone who needed all that milk!

Good luck with the pumping again!

I WISH I had that much of a supply! With my girls, I had no problems keeping up a supply, but right now, my frozen supply is at 40.5 oz. That is really awesome you could help out another mama though!!!

That is totally awesome of you to donate all that BM! And I wouldn't worry about it, supply = demand when is comes to breast milk and I'm willing to bet that yours will build back up to where you are pumping a bunch.

I've been pumping the past two days after Desmond feeds and I get a little, but I know he eats a lot and has been cluster feeding like crazy lol. I think part of that is because I'm on my period and I know when you get on your period your supply goes down some.

The only bad thing about cluster feeding and pumping is I have such sore nipples lol.
