  • @pink_polkadots doing massage/compressions while pumping may also help. the lc recommended the stanford site for tips on maximizing milk output https://med.stanford.edu/newborns/professional-education/breastfeeding/maximizing-milk-production.html

    to answer your question, 2 complete gentle cycles (one for each baby) at first, so about 30-40min, every 3 hours for the first five days. then until empty plus 10 minutes on normal mode (about 30-50min as well) to increase my supply. now it’s only until i’ve pumped what the babies eat in a feeding plus about 20% and i turn it off regardless if i’m empty (to dial back oversupply).

  • I was an exhausted zombie all day. 

    Now everyone in the house is sleeping except for me and the baby who is headbutting my bladder.

  • @booksandcoffee uggghhh I'm sorry. I hope you get a ton of sleep asap, and feel well-rested.

    Today is my last day at work before leave, which is bittersweet (I like my job a lot, but I'm relieved to not worry about going into labor at work). I ordered a cookie delivery for our staff meeting today, so I'm excited to treat everyone.

    Solidarity sister. This was totally my night last night.
  • @lurvleybunchococonuts Just FYI, you're not supposed to take baths after giving birth so they might not let you take one after you have Lulu.  :'(
    So sweet of your work place to throw you a baby shower!  <3

  • @lurvleybunchococonuts I could be wrong, but I think it's an infection risk after giving birth since your cervix will be wide open. Also, you'll likely be bleeding a ton, so a bath might be kind of icky.   :s

  • @offtoneverland I don't remember being told I couldn't take a bath, but I definitely spent most of labor in the tub to handle the pain? Post party didn't have a tot for us though, but that post labor shower was amazing. +1 on the bath probably icky with the lochia.

  • @lurvleybunchococonuts - @offtoneverland is correct. After baby baths are not recommended because they are an infection risk. :(

  • @lurvleybunchococonuts I'm sorry about the GBS and the bath, but I'm glad you had a work shower! OMG I also had a tonsil check this morning at my 39 week appt. 

    This morning I had my 39 week appt, dilated 3cm, 75% effaced. My OB scheduled me for an induction on Nov 8 (my due date) because of my blood pressure which was creeping up a little higher today. She stripped my membranes, so we're hoping baby girl comes before the scheduled induction-- fingers crossed! I feel kinda achey now, but no contractions yet (besides BH contractions).

  • Speaking of all this breast feeding... does anyone have nursing bras they recommend that aren't totally hideous Granny-bras?? I know it's not that big of a deal, but for me, when your body isn't what it used to be, anything to make you feel better about yourself helps.

  • @kbyahn I got some nursing bras from Kindred Bravely and I just love them. I got the Sublime full coverage bra and even though I have a large chest (DDD) I can wear the bra out of the house without feeling like I'm bouncing all over the place or sagging. They have several other bras too that I haven't tried.
