Hi Ladies. I haven't been logging on very often these days - I just don't have the time!
Baby Girl is just over 5 weeks old now! She is simply lovely and I'm totally in love with her! It has been an emotional time - I feel like I just don't have enough time to really enjoy her. Between laundry, nursing, pumping, bottle feeding, washing bottles, etc...the days fly by. As I posted a couple of weeks back, nursing has been a real problem for me. I've been spending hours each day nursing and pumping - all for very little yield - 2 oz MAX in a single sitting. I went for a jog tonight and decided I.am.done.with breastfeeding. I've spent enough time, energy and tears on this. And I've wasted enough precious time that I could have spent with Baby Girl. I'm not looking for any more tips or suggestions - I've tried it all - or at least as much as I'm willing to do. Sorry for venting...it's been rough in that sense.
Other than the breastfeeding debacle, motherhood is amazing, magical and profoudly humbling. Baby Girl is more and more alert. I see hints of a smile - and my heart melts.
Well, ladies, I'm falling asleep here, so I'll sign off now. I hope I'll have more time to check in with you from now on.
