So here’s what I’m going to do

I’ve mulled over this whole breastfeeding issue and the drop in supply and I’ve agonized over what to do until I’m sick of agonizing over it.  I’m also certain you’re all sick of reading about it.  So, I’m going to give my best effort to rebuilding my supply (Fenugreek, extra pumping sessions, drinking lots of water, oatmeal [which I haven’t stopped eating], etc.) and if the supply continues to stay low, I’m going to take it as my body’s way of saying


I feel relieved to have a plan.  It may be that I am weaning by next week.  But it may be that I’m still pumping until Thanksgiving.  Who knows.  We’ll see. 

In other news, we took Joshua to the pumpkin patch on Sunday with some friends of ours.  Growing up we NEVER did things like this, so I want to do things like this with/for Joshua.  I think it’s important for families to have traditions and my family didn’t really have any growing up.  So, now that I have a family of my own, I’m starting new traditions.  The pumpkin patch is one of them.

Here are some cute pics!

Once I went back to work my supply tanked and I had to give it up. I just congratulated myself for doing it as long as I did and moved on to the next challenge of motherhood. Do the best you can. Fenugreek paired with Blessed Thistle works better, although be prepared to smell like maple syrup.

Isn't motherhood grand?
