stash has reached 300 oz. i'm freezing an average of 10 oz a day now, i fill those lansinoh brand bags up way over the 6 mark. and i fill one up every morning. a friend well... kind of a friend... just had her baby at 34 weeks and he's in the hospital, a different one than she is in, but she had an emergency c section and i guess she's not going to BF, this is her second and she didnt BF the first, but i so totally want to give him my milk! since he's a preemie he needs it, but thats not my decision to make. and i feel awkward offering it to her, and IDK if the hospital would let her give it to him either. but i found an article in the detroit paper about donating milk so i can do that in a couple months if we still have extra.
Whenever Ellie tries to PULL OFF, i hold her head so she cant. if she wants to let go, she knows how but i wont let her hurt me.
Also, I've noticed that after he falls asleep on the boob without letting go, I'll put my finger in the corner of his mouth to break the suction and pop him off, but that will wake him up enough that he starts sucking and even with my finger holding his cheek out, he still sucks, but harder and he still manages to get the tip.

She doesn't have gas often, but when she does it's awful! People usually blame it on the dog and I say, Nope! That's my baby girl!
Well, Jeremiah hasn't latched for me for a month now. He has decided he only wants bottles. It seems my flow gags him. So I was pumping enough to feed him 50% of the time BM. We had a bad storm Friday, and our power went out for 2 days. I was unable to pump during that time and so I think I will take it as my sign to stop. Pretty disappointed. With DD it was so easy I only had to pump at work and she nursed for 13 months. We didn't have a single problem. This time it just wasn't meant to be. Good luck to all of you that our left and enjoy your time with your little ones.
