so i decided to soley breastfeed my daughter and i was real irritated in a way and starting to think about formula feeding..she never seemed full so i wasnt getting any breaks in latching..but now my milk finally came in and im making enough to feed and pump once a day (for storage) i went from only getting almost a oz out to getting a little over 3 oz out in a day..still getting use to the constant latching and not being able to pass her to dh during feedings but i got to say i've become a lot better at muti-tasking lol

 Congrats.  Sometimes frustrations can make breastfreeding seem like more trouble than it's worth, but when things finally start working out it feels great.  You will be so happy in the coming years knowing you did not give up and your daughter got the best nutrition possible.

Way to go! It gets even easier later on. Right now, you're in the constant growth spurt mode. It won't last forever.

And when you multitask and the spagetti falls on teh babies head they won't fuss. Just wipe it off and go on. :)

I did that like a week or two ago. No complaints. Nursing is great. And hubby didn't see it happen. Even better.

i plan to stop when teeth start coming depending on how it feels..im terrified of the thought of her chomping on me with teeth being that she's a biter with just her gums lol

Babies can't bite you while actively nursing. When and if they do bite, its because they are exploring their new teeth and it can be stopped simply by teaching nursing manners.

Glad to hear its getting easier :-)
