    I've been pumping 10-15 minute sessions several times a day since she was born. I was actually getting milk in the hospital at the end of day 2! I was a little obsessed because I double pumped with our son, but didn't make it a full year because he wasn't the best nurser, so when night feedings went away, so did my supply. This time I'm trying to not let that happen. I have so much frozen that I can't keep up, lol!


    So what's new ladies?

    Sandra - how your son's teeth? Reed had a bunch of collisons at the bounce house place on his birthday and now his tooth is grey

    His teeth have healed up pretty nicely. They are super slanted backwards but don't look TOO dreadful. Unfortunately he might lost them when he sees the dentist next month, since they already have cavities.

    KUdos to you for the freezer stash! I have never been able to pump much, but I haven't tried all that hard either. Once I start occasional bottles, I'll just do formula.

    For those who are staying home with their kids and not working, have you tried a bottle at all yet? Ethan hasn't had one. I'm never away from him for longer than an hour, on Saturdays when I take my DD to music class. I want to try one soon though.

    Jonah generally gets a bottle twice a week. Once on Friday's when he goes to my MIL's and on Sundays we bring one to church. It is much easier to give him a bottle at church than it is to nurse. I only give him pumped milk. He has been getting bottles since he was about two weeks old, he has never had problems with nipple confusion. I had a little in the freezer, but he has drank it I was pumping everyday, but once we started back to school I quit. I need to start back again and build my supply back up. I am having an easier time this time around pumping, but I wish I was more consistent with it.

    So happy to hear about his teeth! The poor thing. Did you guys get the house?

    Pumping has never been hard for me, but it is time consuming. Sometimes it is a nice excuse to sit down for 15 minutes though.

    Yeah, I don't think I could find a spare 15 minutes LOL.

    We did get the house! We don't get possession til Nov. 15, but at least that gives us time to pack up.

    I really should try a bottle soon.

    Congrats on the house! And so glad that yours son's teeth arent looking as bad as you thought!

    I too am now a milk donor. Making my first donation of about 200 oz on Monday. I'm super psyched to do it because I have way more milk than we will use. DD gets about 1 bottle a day and I am back to work. I'm a nurse and work 1 day a week 12.5 hours. So she is quite good at the bottle while I. Gone. Though I really do hate pumping.

    How many ounces at a time do your kids take? DD takes about 6-7 every 3-4 hours while I'm at work.

    We also have started pre K here 3 times a week and gymnastics for DD1 and pre k 2 days a week for DS. It's crazy hard getting all the kids out and picking them up at different times with an infant.

    I feel bad but i dont pump this time, unless i go out and she takes a bottle while im out then ill pump when i get back, but that has happened 3 times since she was born, not much stored. Should i start so she has a supply just in case? Hmm. Congrats on those donating and sandra for getting the house!

    I should take a picture of our freezer, its funny!

    Saylor gets about 4.5 - 5 ounces every 2-3 hours, sometimes longer if she naps long. Doesn't seem to want much more than that right now and she's growing so I'm not worried.

    We put an offer in on a house this past week and it was accepted!!!! Seriously, I'm still in shock. Just praying everything goes well with inspecitions and mortgage stuff. This is our first house because we have been renting from my MIL for 4 years.

    Hi girls!

    Just thought I'd bump up this thread.

    We moved about a week ago. I'm usually pretty calm, but that was stressful trying to live with the babies (and the hubby) making messes while packing. I'm so glad we are in and LOVE our new house. It's actually our first house which is so exciting.

    How are you all?
