Magic Titty on the Mend plus Bonus Photos!

WooWee. That was brutal. I love how I skimmed over those parts in my Mothers of Multiples breastfeeding book. I remember thinking "that sounds AWFUL, good thing I don't have to worry about that".
And the universe laughed a big effin HaHa.

My fever broke yesterday morning so that was fast. I felt like I'd been hit by a giant wave. No kidding about those "flu like" symptoms. Ouchie.

I've had Whoop Whoop take his afternoon nap on my broken titty for the last two days and immediately there has been an improvement.

Taking the meds, massaging BT and trying to get some rest.
I am concerned about my supply as it seems to have dropped substantially almost overnight not just from BT but from the tits alright side as well. I've eaten like a bird in the past 48 so maybe it's that.
My appetite is returning and hopefully so will my milk.
Until then, thank god for formula or else there would be non stop screaming from 2 hungry babies.
I think they look pretty happy. We have a lot of fun even though I wish I had the energy of HN. Someday. Maybe I'll feel like my old self someday.


Feet are the most fascinating thing in W2's life these days.





When he's not trying to eat his toes, he can be found trying to eat his brother's hand.

woo hoo! glad you're feeling better already. i heard that after you're sick, with most anything, your supply can drop for a couple days. make sure you're getting your fluids! :)and also, i'm wicked jealous that you have a HN.

So glad you're on the mend! And... you've got some damn cute kids.

As for "feeling like your old self..." I'm coming to realize that maybe there is no return to that, just a new normal...? That being said, I do hope you get some rest and let HN babywrangle for a bit!

How miserable! I'm glad you have a good script and are starting to feel better. Hope you and the titties are back to your happy selves again very soon.

The boys are gorgeous and getting so big!

Glad you are on the mend, mastitis is awful. I hope you are able to coax your supply back up and I'm so glad both boys are still willing to nurse to help you (and them) along. And feet are wonderful!

Wow I missed the last few (several?) posts but glad to hear things are getting better. Mastitis is no fun, I remember my sister in law having it when she was staying with us once and it was horrible for her.
