How is breastfeeding going? Going well. I had a bit of an oversupply that seems to be regulating a bit. My body is getting used to him only getting up once MOTN, and I'm not waking up in discomfort. He used to spit up quite a bit from too much milk / overactive letdown, but has been doing much better recently.
How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? Ah, interesting story. I went back to work 2 weeks ago, and then got laid off at the end of last week. I've got a lot to do job search wise, so we're leaving both kids in daycare right now so that I can concentrate on that. Pumping is going ok. I'm pumping more than he's eating, but now that our schedules are in flux I'm trying to figure out a pumping routine.
How are nights? Great for now. He usually gets up once between 2:00 - 4:00, but nurses and goes right back to sleep. I'm not holding my breath that he stays this good of a sleeper. DS1 slept really well from 2-3 months old, then started waking up a lot more from 3-10 months. We're still swaddling DS2 but will stop soon. Hopefully sleep doesn't turn into a disaster.
Any teeth/signs of teething? He's gnawing on his hands a lot, but I think that is more developmental than teething. DS1 didn't get teeth until right around 12 months.

How old is LO? 4 months
How is breastfeeding going? Still good besides the right nipple pain that comes and goes thanks to my pretty flat right nipple.
How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? Seems to be going ok. DS differs how much milk he's drinking during the days I'm at work so I'm still figuring out the best amount and bottle sizes to send with him, but so far I've pumped more than he's drank each day I've worked in-office.
How are nights? Back and forth. Still waking up every few hours most nights, but then last night he slept 7pm-6:30am. My boobs were rock hard and sore, but otherwise it was fantastic!
Any teeth/signs of teething? No change from last week - drooling and gnawing on things. Maybe early signs of teething, maybe not.
Questions/AW/Rant? Glad to be keeping up with his milk intake so far. Really hoping this stays the case. Hoping last night's sleep was a good sign of things to come.
GTKY: What is your favorite way to relax/unwind? I tend to watch a lot of TV and movies. I had a prenatal massage around 36 weeks that was awesome and keep meaning to go for another massage as a wind-down from "fourth tri".
How is breastfeeding going? Good. I do have to hold her hand to keep her from repeatedly whacking me in the face lately.
How are nights? Ok. 2-3 wake ups. Much better than the past month, so I'll take it.
Any teeth/signs of teething? Nope.
Questions/AW/Rant? We're moving next week and then I will start job searching. I have mixed feelings about going back to work, especially since she doesn't really take a bottle currently, although if it's anything like my last job search I have a long time to get used to the idea.
GTKY: what is your favorite way to relax/unwind? A hot bath. Not being able to take them during pregnancy was frustrating.

Hi everyone! I've been having trouble keeping up with TCF lately but I'm here today!
How old is LO? 4 months
How is breastfeeding going? Pretty good. She's going through a growth spurt and eating a ton so that's our current situation. It's not so bad except I'll have feelings of milk inadequacy every once in a while. Medically I know she's getting enough because she has plenty of diapers and is growing, but sometimes my head gets in the way of reason.
How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? So I pump to donate, just once every morning. Since DD2 has been eating more at night, I haven't been able to get as much in the morning pump. 😔
How are nights? We just went through a regression but the past two nights she has slept through so fx that she's back to normal.
Any teeth/signs of teething? Lots of sucking and gnawing but no teeth yet.
GTKY: what is your favorite way to relax/unwind? Crocheting is great but if I'm honest, I eat to relax.
