Well, actually I have a good idea where it went but I am still not sure.
In the last week I have noticed I have little milk and I have had to supplement with more formula. I think it started when Sansa decided she liked drinking from a bottle better than nursing. Hey, I don’t blame her, she is a fast murder and she cam suck back 5 oz of formula in under 10 minutes where she’d have to nurse for twice that time to get the same amount. However, I want to breastfeed so we persevered and she is nursing more now. Except I don’t have the milk!
Also, I have started waking the dogs again and getting more exercise. I have tried to eat more to compensate but I think my body is having trouble keeping up. I am trying to nurse as much as possible, and I nurse exclusively over night but, well, I can’t keep up.
Yes, I know I could pump to try to get my supply up more as well, but I hate pumping, and realisticly I just don’t have the time. I have three kids to take care of, and the dogs and the house so I have let it slide.
I do, however, feel like a million bucks. I am a very active, athletic person and being stuck inside, on my butt nursing all day really kills me. I guess it’s a trade off.
We will see how it goes, but no matter what I am proud of myself for nursing twins for over 15 weeks so I am not going to feel bad for giving them some formula…well, okay, I feel a little bad because the concentrate is very expensive and we are trying to save money but…:-p
