Well, shut me up.

So, all of my plans for being a good partner have been thrown out the window.

In a previous post, I mentioned that I didn't know why more men didn't help feed the baby dispite the fact that Mom was breastfeeding. My thoughts were, just pump some into the bottle, Dad feeds through the night every other night and Mom can sleep making the amount of lost sleep equal between the parents.

My cousin, Laura, then pointed out to me that, even if she's not feeding the baby, she will still need to pump.

Okay...so she rolls out of be for 30 minutes every night to pump so she is more comfortable.

Wrong!

I knew infants fed every 1 and a half to 3 hours. What I didn't realize until just last night, during Breastfeeding 101, was that Mom's body is on the same clock as baby's. Mom will also need to pump every 1 and a half to 3 hours if she wants to keep her knockers in proper breastfeeding form.

That's just stupid. Remind me to have a conversation with whoever came up with this plan.

Was that thunder I just heard?

unlike you flea to dog symbiotic relationship with Shaundar (FYI, you're the flea). Babies and mother's do have one. Babies need for mom is obvious, but baby will take off lbs from mom, has psych advantages, and will make those boobs feel much, much, better...at least until the teeth come in.

Your acting like a democrat, your helpful ways are really just screwing everything up.

There's that word again...PLANS...

You HAVE no plans, Des has them ALL figured out.

STOP PLANNING as it will only frustrate things further when your PLANS don't turn out the way you want them to.
