Guess what's in my freezer?!

If you said 12 ounces of breastmilk you would be correct!

I have been struggling with breastfeeding since the day these babies have been born. I never expected it to be so hard. First it was NICU, then it was latch, and always it was supply.

Well, we worked on latching and I pump all the time, we stopped using bottles at home and finally I had enough in my fridge that I needed to start freezing some of it. A weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Now, I just have to get through going back to work. Wish I could be a stay at home mom, but being a teacher is pretty good job for hours. The babies should only get 2 or 3 bottles during the time I am gone.

Hurray!!

Stumbled across your blog (slow day at work). Well done for sticking with it. We also had NICU-induced breastfeeding challenges and managed to overcome with a supportive husband and great lactation consultant (although a singleton). Returning to work is tough (being separated from your babies is bound to decrease supply) but you are doing great!
