BF: how to balance life and baby
Breastfeeding moms: How do you balance regular life things and your baby’s schedule? We are at 6 months now and it feels like every time I have recovered a little bit of freezer stash (I had none after returning to work), we hit another growth spurt or I got my period and end up burning through it. We’ve started solids now, but even with that our baby hit another spurt over Thanksgiving and I’m now about to run out of freezer stash to supplement what I’m pumping. I was really excited prior to the week of Thanksgiving—I had about four bottles worth of freezer milk and was looking forward to an evening birthday party for one of my friends. Now I’m down to one pouch (less than half a bottle) so I won’t have enough milk on Monday for daycare if I go to the party and leave baby with husband. Feeling very discouraged and frustrated. I already drink close to 2 gallons of water daily plus eat oatmeal and lactation cookies etc to keep my supply up and just feel like it’s never going to get better.
