lady pumps-alot and the nourishing talk

I have been a pumping fiend. I don't love it, but I do like the healing break it has given my body. And, after 2 days of 'is that all?' when finishing, my milk supply has risen to the occasion. The only drawback: I wake every 2.5-3 hours with leaking breas.ts, and have to pump. Ah well.
Baby Acorn is growing, so that is good.
We had the most lovely time at a good friend's household on Saturday! The party was at a very child-friendly 2pm, and they gave me leave to use the nursery for pumping. I hijacked an out-of-town friend for some newborn kvetching. It was nice to catch up with so many of my old friends.
After the party Mr. S was like "you need more girl time" he said I came down from the pump/chat session looking relaxed and rejuvenated.
The only problem: I am usually worn out by 7pm, and everyone works. The weekends fill quickly.
Our little Acorn is starting to make faces, and hints of smiles. It is exciting!


  1. I'm glad that the pumping is working for you. It's great that your dh noticed the difference having grown up conversation can make. :)

    Yay for baby smiles!

  2. I am so happy Little Acorn is growing so beautifully! And glad to hear the pumping is helping with your recovery-- and it's a bonus that your milk supply goes up too!! Sounds like Mr. S is ever so sweet and tuned into you so much, as well at Little Acorn. :)

  3. Poppy, I am so happy that your baby is born! congratulations. Now I'll backtrack on your posts to find out more. I'm very happy and my heart sings for you. :)
