    Trying to post a picture here, but not sure if it's gonna work...hmmm...also I feel a bit creepy when I say, Lurking. I'ma Lurker..haha too funny!

    Just wanted to give you all a quick update and send some good vibes your way! B'feeding is going much better for Bode and I! Just wanted to share a few things that were NOT helping us with feeding:

    Turns out that i had the wrong size flanges for our pump - got a size larger and I'm no longer rubbing myself raw each time I pump.

    Didn't know that i was supposed to use the Lanisol (spelled wrong, but to lazy to go to the other room and look at the container) nipple ointment on the inside of the flanges. Do this and you'll be SUPER glad you did!

    And I got a perscription for this 'super special ointment' from the lactation consultant. It's so super special that only certain pharmacy's carry it and they have to 'make it' right there for you. If you are having troubles with super sore nipp's ASK FOR IT! IT"S AMAZING!

    Bode is back up to birth weight and he slept for 5 hours last night! Woot woot! Sending tons of vibes your way ladies! Elv's to those who need them, sticky vibes to the newbies and lot's of love to you all!

    I'm so glad BFing is working for you now. I swear the first time around sucks. haha! There are so many things I'll do differently with this baby when it comes time.

    So good to hear from you :) I am so happy that Bode is doing so well! Yay!
    It's just so amazing to keep reading all these great birth stories and updates and know that you ladies are HOME with your little ones. Very encouraging!
    Thanks for all the BF tips, too. Since this will be my first experience with BFing, I am clueless!

    Julie might look for some BF classes in your area, I really wish i knew then what i knew now.. i might not of had such a hard time with DS>. and it really hit me hard emotionally making my depression issue evenworse! UGH.. I recently took a class they had in the office for us and i was just amazed with what she had to say i was like why didn't i knowthis the FIRST time! lolol :)
