If it makes anyone feel any better, Justin is on a strictly liquid diet. ;-) Sorry, I couldn't resist.
Breastfeeding is going well, as is pumping. I get a little nervous sneaking away to pump once a day, what if Justin gets up and he's hungry? Well, I"ve found that he's just as happy sucking away, even if there is NOT any milk in them nummies (our name for breasts).
I broke down and bought a pacifier for him today. He gets so fussy b/w 6-10pm. He's not hungry, his diaper is dry, I try to hold him in different ways, walk with him, sing to him,...you get the idea. So tonight I gave him a pacifier. He took it!! I was so relieved I actually cried (still hormonal). I can't help but feel a little bad. I pray that he doesn't get the all dreaded "Nipple Confusion". I'm hoping all will be okay b/c it's Playtex, the same brand as the once-a-day bottle he's getting.
Oh, if anyone is using Enfamil or Similiac formula...I have bunches of coupons I can mail you. Let me know & I'll send them to you, K?
