One step forward, two steps back
We weighed Se.bastian on the rented scale today, and he was back over 8 lbs. Then, for no apparent reason, my supply dropped off a cliff. What the fuck? I was still nursing constantly, pumping, taking supplements, etc. I hope it'll be back to the old level tomorrow. I'm sure being stressed about it doesn't help. My current goal is to keep him exclusively breastfed through Wednesday, which would be two weeks. We can then supplement, though I'll keep up the nutso feeding/pumping schedule for another week to make sure I max out my supply, such as it is.
