Sweet dreams be yours dear

Reducing my supply has gone more easily than I had anticipated.  I still breastfeed Curly first thing every morning.  But since Sunday (5 days) I have gone as long as was comfortable before either pumping or hand expressing.  As the “demand” has dropped so has my “supply.” Here’s detail of how it’s gone:

  • Sunday: breastfeed 8am, pump 6pm, hand express 10pm
  • Monday: breastfeed 7am, hand express 6pm, hand express 10pm
  • Tuesday: breastfeed 7am, hand express 9pm
  • Wednesday: breastfeed 7am
  • Thursday: breastfeed 7am

I feel full when I wake up  but the rest of the time I’m fine.  For now, Curly is still breastfeeding well first thing in the morning, and I’ll keep it up for as long as that’s the case.

Strawberry’s mom stayed over on Tuesday night, so once Curly went to bed we had the opportunity for a midweek date night.  Our exciting date location… the mall.  We induldged in some Godiva truffles and bought Curly the most perfect (and appropriate for him) onesie ever.  It was $2 on the sale rack at B@by G@p.

In other exciting news, we are looking forward to a meet up with the lovely Love+Love=Marriage family on Saturday.  HP and Curly are birthday twins, and we may all just faint from the power of their cuteness combined.  Once we recover, we’ll be sure to post photographic evidence.

  1. You are a gap sale superstar! I wish I could see the combined cuteness and faint as well.

  2. Congrats on making it 6 months! You did AWESOME! And it seems the slow tapering off is working well – that’s awesome! Cute little onesie but what’s cuter is the baby IN the onesie!

  3. that is great the slow taper is working well. Curly is just heavenly! he is such a big boy.

  4. Yea for date nights and no engorgement!

  5. It’s great that your tapering has been going so well….

    We have that same onesie! Way cute.

  6. That is a perfect onesie for him! Gosh he is just so adorable I want to squeeze him! As for the supply vs. demand, you are one lucky girl! One of my best friends stopped bfeeding her baby girl and by the end of the workday couldn’t lift her arms without being in pain! I also remember her boobs being solid hard rocks! (The things we do at work, ha ha she just couldn’t believe it and made us feel how hard they were!)

  7. He is such a cute guy! Have fun this weekend.

  8. Curly is just so edibly cute, cute, cute and that’s a great onesie. I second its sentiment. I wonder if they make one in my size? Also, yeah for date nights and family support. Reading about your moms’ involvement makes me ever happier about our decision to move closer to family in the near-ish future.

  9. Love the onesie! Glad you got to get some YOU time!

  10. oooo, that’s gonna be GOOD! Can’t wait to see the photos. Have a great time!

  11. Wow 6 months already, that is one gorgeous wee man, I just love his eyes. Love the onesie too and glad you got a date night – sometimes the simple one are the best!
