Life lately

Firstly, a big thanks for everyone's advice. A lot of it was helpful, and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your two cents. I always thought in the back of my head that I just had too much milk, but being a first time mom, you don't really know how much is really too much, or if you just feel like you have a lot because you've never been full of milk before! But the more reading I do, the more I realize that I do have an oversupply and that all of the problems I have described link back to this oversupply. You can google oversupply + forceful let-down if you want to read more. All I can do is hope it resolves soon. Most of what I'm reading says I should be ok by the end of 3 months (if I live that long!). So we'll hang in there for a while longer...

Anyway, we have been having a lot of fun around our house lately. Bennett is getting to be more and more interactive, and we are loving it! I caught a couple smiles on camera yesterday, but my batteries are dead, so you'll have to wait to see how cute they are! I have gotten out of the house at least once or twice every day this last week. I finally just decided I wouldn't worry so much about if he'd be hungry or not, and he was fine. And it felt GREAT to be out doing things. I went on walks, went shopping, went to Institute, went to a birthday party for a little neighbor girl, revisted good old Olson & Hoggan (shoutout!), amongst other things. It was grand.

So I'm re-reading this post and... well... it is really boring. Sorry. I'll just stop now and go think of something better to write about.

I am yet to meet one person who has not struggled with breastfeeding. I am sorry you are struggling. Hang in there.
