Happy Halloween! October 31, 2010

Filed under: Breastfeeding — mamabeaumo @ 8:13 pm

Tonight was Bubba’s first halloween and besides being pretty cold and windy, he enjoyed it!

After a rough night and rocky start to the day, not being able to breastfeed, at 3p I decided that it had been over 24 hours and resumed nursing.  All told, I pumped and dumped 27 oz of breastmilk…absolutely heartbreaking. For those who nurse, you can surely understand how upsetting it is to dump something you know you have worked so hard to produce.  I am so happy to be able to nurse my little one again. I think he had a hard time believing he could when I put him to my breast this afternoon.  He sort of looked at me like, “Are you sure? Why did you wait so long?”  He was so happy though that he shortly fell right into a deep and peaceful sleep.  There is nothing like a happy, satisfied babe snuggled in your arms!!

    I totally understand your frustration. I hate it when it happens.
