Breast Feeding: Back On Track

Great news for me! The injured nipple is healed and back in use! As of our 4am feeding today, I've been able to nurse without issue on that side. What a relief. Breast feeding is so much easier with both breasts, it's amazing how different I feel. I hated feeling like I wasn't giving him enough milk, and having to warm up bottles of breast milk over a silly injury like that. We did what needed to be done, and now I have even more appreciation for what we are doing.

Now I need to get my supply back up on that side. I was trying to keep demand up with pumping, but as of yesterday morning I could tell that it wasn't enough. We have some Mother's milk tea now, which I will start drinking in the morning. Cross your fingers!
