It seems like almost all of us have struggled with bf'ding..
After day 3 I started pumping & bottle feeding my breastmilk. I've officially givenup trying to force her on the boob. I'm not sure how long I'll pump before switching to formula. Pumping is so time consuming and having to get up 3X in the night to pump bc they are so hard & full. It'd be so much easier to make a bottle of formula and enjoy feeding (w.o pumping)...

Hope you mama's & babes are all doing well

I gave up day 3. It was hard and Zoela was nipple confused with having to have bottle feeds because she took longer to regulate her blood sugar. No regrets here. It doesn't matter how you feed your baby. They will grow.

Snow: Beautiful, Beautiful baby! Love his outfit.

The announcements I ordered came today. But, I'm still waiting on prints to mail them. It's so exciting. So, Zoela didn't get the professional photos that DD did. But, I didn't want to spend $100+ as we are getting a family shoot done this spring in the park. So the weather plays a part and also that I'm still looking a bit pregnant.

Here are the announcements. They are 5x7. These aren't the best pictures of them as they won't let you save them to your PC. So, they were just taken with my phone.

Here are the prints. The pink collage is printed for everyone. And the newborn poses are for close family and friends. I ended up printing them all for 9c each and just going 4x6's.

Had to have her awake pic... Looks just like I did as a baby.

Adorable!!

Here's my announcement

Spoiler






We've taken to trying to breast feed in the day but formula at night. I am pumping a bit but nowhere near enough to supply through the night. We ummed about exclusive pumping but I couldn't handle the pumping schedule

I've not pumped since last night but woke up in a pool of my own milk this morning
So now pumping to stop it! Lol.

I can see us becoming mainly a formula family, it is a lot easier and I too get the 'fear' when he comes near my nipples!
