Houston, we have a problem.
So, the good news is that I have 70+ ounces of milk in the freezer, and still have 4 weeks or so until I go back to work.
The bad news is that I have 70+ ounces of milk in the freezer, and still have 4 weeks or so until I go back to work.
This morning I pumped SEVEN ounces of milk. Lucas had slept a 6.5 hour stretch, followed by a 3 hour stretch, and the girls were not pleased about it. (I was though!) I keep the milk in an organizing container thing that freezes the bags flat. It's now full. I don't have a standalone freezer, just the one with the fridge. It's not that big. We eat a lot of frozen food, so there's not a lot of room for milk. Eek! What to do? Buy another container and buy less frozen food? Try to stop pumping?
I call this a "problem", but it's a problem I'm actually quite pleased to have. With DS1 I struggled to keep up with him, and ended up on Domperidone for quite a while to be able to EBF him. I'm hoping to be able to keep up on my own with Lucas. (Going back to work and relying on a pump to keep your supply up really sucks.)
Anyway, what would you do?
