Bottle Feeding

About 10 days ago baby girl slept through the night and I went about 10 hours between feedings. I woke up quite uncomfortable so I had to pump for relief. Of course she woke as soon as I finished pumping and I ended up giving her some of what I just pumped. As I look at this picture, I love seeing her look up at me. I've been averaging 60 hour work weeks right now and I'm finding it hard to pump as frequently as I would like. Looking at the picture shows me though that we can still have special feeding times if I end up switching to formula. I'm hoping next week I won't feel as stressed and my supply will pick up. However, I keep reminding myself I'm not super woman and I I can only do so much. Baby girl prefers breast milk, but she's taken an occasional formula bottle and that's ok.

Hang in there. You're doing great- you're super woman if you're pumping and working 60 hours a week! Don't feel bad at all about formula- you deserve a break once in awhile!
