relieved.

so I've decided that I think im losing my milk. She's still so frustrated trying to nurse and when i tried to pump today so she could drink it out of a bottle. well i pumped forEVER and couldnt even get 2 ounces. So finally after that i decided maybe i would put some formula in really quick into the bottle and see if she would take it and WALA! she did! i was quite excited. So tonight she was getting frustrated again and so i just gave her straight up formula for the beginning and she downed it. Im really excited except formula = expensive. We're on wic, and i know you can get it with them but i think they only give enfamil... Maybe? one or the other. She wont take the enfamil we have but she will take the similac so i dont know. We will see. im jut glad she's eating something and now im not so stressed.

one good thing abotu formula = i can wear dresses/shirts that i dont have to worry about how im gonna nurse in. I really wanted to wait for as long as i could to nurse her so im gonna try to keep pumping and im taking some blessed thistle and some other thing thats supposed to help my supply. Lets hope it works!

for viewing pleasure, a picture of my child in total relaxation in her "bumbo" watching football with dad. I need to take more pictures!
