Say What?

I am recovering from a plugged duct in my left breast. It is getting better, but my milk production is still lagging on that side. All the books I have, plus my OB and Baby S’s pediatrician, recommend getting lots of rest and pumping every 2-3 hours.

How exactly does one do that? Getting lots of rest and pumping every 2-3 hours seem to be mutually exclusive. Am I missing something?

Anyways, Baby S is one week old. My mom arrives tomorrow night to be with us for a few days and to meet her grandson.

    Baby S looks a lot like his dad doesn’t he? 😉 So cute!!! It is impossible to rest when feeding every 2-3 hrs round the clock. “Sleep when the baby sleeps,” say all the experts. Ha!!!! Glad you are enjoying your little sweetie!

    Your son is adorable. I can already see the little personality in his face. And what sparkly little eyes!

    Congratulations. He is tremendous.

    As for pumping. It goes faster when I pump in the morning after a hot shower or when I put heating pads on my boobs. Never thought I would EVER write that in a sentence.
