I bought a new breast pump today! So far so good! I was able to get an ounce out of each breast after pumping for twenty minutes. It’s a double pump so I was able to do both at the same time which was nice but tied up both of my hands since I have to hold them. Hell, if it works I don’t care! My goal is to be a milk producing machine. I feel bad about giving Avery formula. It doesn’t seem to be as friendly to her tummy as my milk does. I will continue to pump and try to get her to latch on as often as possible. My goal is to get this nailed down by the time I start working again which will be in about four weeks (give or take). I also need to schedule my effing gallbladder surgery before then, too. Shit. I’m a busy gal. Dude. I just said (er, typed) ‘gal.’ WTF planet am I from?
So………. after I went to Babies R Us and dropped a couple Bens I went to my mom’s house so she could spend time with Avery and after telling her about my night and not getting ANY sleep she offered to watch the baby so I could go home and take a nap. I was grateful but it felt very weird going somewhere and not taking Ave with me. While JuJu and I ate dinner I kept thinking ‘where’s the baby?’ I missed her. Now you are probably thinking ‘Why can’t Lolly’s husband watch the baby so she can sleep?’ MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. He wakes up when I do and he doesn’t get to sleep in like I do AND he had to work today. Poor thing. If I was in need of a nap I could tell him to keep an eye on the baby but I never do that. I like spending time with Avery and JuJu and I’d rather do that than sleep. Most of the time.
Now, for your viewing pleasure – My husband JuJu playing with Avery. It’s amusing and I’m sure she loves it…..
