Since I am raging ill, my little flower will be getting lots of antibodies from my milk. I was told by my doctor that bf'ing while you are sick is good for the baby. I hope so, because my body aches and my throat feels like I've been rubbing it with sand paper. So far Hana only has the the sneezies. I hope she doesn't get sick.
This illness could not be any timelier since I think the baby is going through a growth spurt. She is nursing like a little monster lately. At about 1 am or so she begins feeding fervently. A few nights back she drank so much, I was left completely empty! she was fussing for more so I tried to just keep nursing her but the milk was not coming fast enough. I broke down and gave her a bottle of expressed milk.
It's been like this for a few days, but now my body has got the hint and now at the same time of night there is now a lot of milk available. I would be happy but being sick and all, I don't feel up to dragging myself up in bed to pump. Needless to say that I suffered engorgement last night. I was hoping the baby would drink up the milk but as it turns out she was sleepy.
I am not looking forward to tonight.
