I am tired of blogging about my futile attempts at breastfeeding but I want to keep this damn thing honest and open. What if some new mom stumbles on my blog one day in the future because she’s struggling with BF’ing and finds comfort in my writing? Right. I’m the voice of crappy moms everywhere.
I pump about three or four times a day and each breast gets 0.5 – 1.0 oz per session. It’s depressing.
I try to put Avery on my breast with the nipple shield when she’s hungry but not hysterically starving and she’ll suck for a few minutes and then get frustrated and start screaming. It breaks my heart.
Enough of that. Moving on.
I bought fabric and started making some stretchy swaddling blankets so that we can wrap Avery up tighter since she enjoys being swaddled while sleeping. I also bought and cut my fabric for my ‘Moby‘ wrap but I decided to wash it before trying it out so I haven’t tested it out yet. Hopefully it’ll work. If not I’ll cut it down and she’ll have a gazillion black swaddling blankets or burp cloths. I’ll post pictures and maybe a demo tomorrow on the homemade wrap. I’m excited and hope it works.
