Adventures in Relactation: The First Drop!
The day after I returned to TN, I started the painful, tedious, insane process that is relactation. Why? Because I truly believe that breast is best, especially coming into the winter months where my poor babes have already fallen sick twice in six weeks.
I am lucky that I had only been weaned for about 8 weeks; there is still a small amount of milk in my body.
So last tuesday I strapped on the ol’ horns and got to pumping!
It is really, really awkward to pump your breasts and not get anything out. Like…really weird.
Luckily, from the first day I did get some out…though not enough to even go into the horn of the pump and down into the bottle.
Today, about five minutes ago, I had my first victory: a drop of milk in the bottle! WOOHOO!!!
I started domperidone 2 days ago, and I don’t think it can work that quick so i’m thinking it’s just my awesome pumping skills!
Okay…now back to work!
Hi there, I’m Tina and I created Blissfully Mommy as a place to share and celebrate the ups and downs of motherhood. In between those dirty diaper moments you learn to laugh, love, cry, and find bliss in the little things like a yummy recipe, easy style tips, or a Pinterest binge! I hope this blog inspires you to cultivate your own version of mommy bliss.
