How old is LO? How is breastfeeding going? How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? Any short and/or long-term breastfeeding goals? Any goal updates? How are nights? Any teeth/signs of teething? Questions/AW/Rant?
GTKY: which zoo animal to you identify with the most? (Today's question brought to you by our plans to go to the zoo tomorrow!)
How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? Ok, still only getting 12 oz vs the 15 oz needed
Any short and/or long-term breastfeeding goals? Any goal updates? Originally had 6 mo in mind for pumping at work. No real goal for BF'ing in general. Update is will continue to pump until baby accepts formula. I've also goine back to pumping in evenings too. I'm considering stopping BF'ing altogether at that point too.
How are nights? Ok, he wakes up twice to eat but falls right back to sleep. So, I'm not too bothered by it.
Any teeth/signs of teething? Aside from the drool, he had 2 red splotches appear over the weekend. I read that might be a sign.
Questions/AW/Rant? I'm going to rant about my baby refusing formula. That is not cool baby. I'm going to try introducing cereal this weekend using formula maybe he'll get used to it that way.
GTKY: I'm going to say buffalo. I have a thick head of hair plus they look hot with all that fur and I hate the heat.
How old is LO? B/G twins - 14 weeks How is breastfeeding going? Good! How is pumping/work (if you are back to work)? Eh...still not getting quite enough but incrementally doing better. Only had to pull 3oz from the freezer today for tomorrow's bottles. Any short and/or long-term breastfeeding goals? Any goal updates? Just keep swimming... How are nights? Sometimes good and sometimes he'll still. Any teeth/signs of teething? No it's too early. Questions/AW/Rant?
GTKY: which zoo animal to you identify with the most? The sloth - still tired and wanting more sleep!

4 months this weekend
Things are still going smoothly
Pumping is disruptive, but I'm keeping up with what i need to send to daycare.
Pump long enough to get her through 12 months of BM at day care. Nurse at least 1 year, then allow her to self-wean.
She sleeps well. I'm trying to drop my MOTN pump, but it's a really slow process. I am sleeping longer though. Meaning instead of getting up to pump at like 2am... my body isn't waking me up to 4:15ish. Hoping that keeps moving to finally meet with LO's wake-up!
No teeth, just drool.
GTKY: LAtely I'm feeling like the arctic fox we saw... hiding in a hollowed out log as if to say "LEAVE ME ALONE!"
littlelion, I'm sure you've tryied all this, but just in case..
Have you offered formula at different temperatures? Or mixed with breastmilk?
DC tried mixing BM with formula. I've done warm formula. I can try cold. This week baby has taken super long naps so now I have extra milk at the end of the day. Yesterday he left a whole 5 oz bag & 2 oz bag both untouched!
