We are so lucky! Mia is sleeping through the night. Anywhere from 6 to 8 hours straight. I love it right now, but I think when I go back to work this may be a problem. She goes to sleep around 9:30 or 10pm and doesn't wake up until between 4 and 6:30am. The problem is if she sleeps that late when I go back to work I won't be able to feed her before I leave. I go back to work in 2 weeks so should I start trying to wake her up to feed her to get her on my schedule? I'm not sure I'm ready for my schedule yet. Or should we just try to adjust ourselves to work around her schedule?
Mia is a terribly lazy eater when she's tired I'm not sure it would work out very well if I woke her to eat. Do you have any suggestions of how to keep a tired baby on task while breastfeeding?
Pumping isn't working out well for me right now. I'm hoping that I can get better at it when I go back to work. I am so worried about pumping and not leaving enough for Mia that I've started pumping only out of the side that I fed her out of right after feeding her, which means that I'm only getting a half ounce to an ounce each time. Which really doesn't give me much to bank when I only do it when Josh is home because I'm afraid that the second I start pumping she's going to start fussing and I won't be able to do anything about it. I know I need to get about two days worth stored up before going to work, but I'm not sure how much milk that is. I don't want to leave the sitter short.
Have a Happy New Year!
