Well, things are getting better on the milk-making front. The Fenugreek seems to be helping, and every day I've been able to pump more (at work) than I did the day before. Not sure whether I'll be able to avoid supplementing during the upcoming week (four more days of school!), but at the very least it won't be the end of my milk supply. We're still able to nurse quite well at home, thankyouverymuch. It's the pumping that's so hard to keep up with. She drinks up to 16 ounces while I'm at work, and pumping that much every day on top of nursing full-time is challenging, ever since I used up my frozen stash. I think things will be just fine once I stop pumping for the summer. I know I'll still pump occasionally, but it won't be a daily thing, thank goodness. I'm so relieved that this doesn't spell the end. I'm not ready to stop, and neither is K.
I'm really looking forward to hopping on a plane next month with K and heading to New York for the summer! I keep making mental notes of stuff I want to bring...now I just need to buy a big honking suitcase to carry it all in! Sadly, not much else to report right now...I'm just trying to hold on till Thursday, the last day of school. Wednesday is the kids' last day, and teachers have one final day, Thursday, to pack it in and tie up all the loose ends. I. Can't. Wait.
