Hi Befer!

I have the same problem. Mine is two things - one, I do have an overactive letdown. When I take the nipple away, there literally is a stream of milk flowing out of the nipple. I just hold a burp cloth to it and wait until the stream stops. She fusses because she's getting way too much milk at one time and can't swallow that fast. Also, between 5 - 8 weeks of age, babies are more fussy and do have a hard time deciding what they want. My dd cluster feeds at night and is extremely fussy at the nipple. This usually lasts 2 - 5 minutes. It is frustrating, but I keep telling myself she will quiet down and she usually does. I cannot wait until this fussiness if over with though. It makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong, but I am not.

My bf and pumping is going very well now. I have milk stored in the freezer. DH gives Jayden a bottle at night once a week so I can have a longer sleep. But now she sleeps 7 - 8 hours, so we don't really need him to do that either.

Jayden is now smiling regularly. It's sooooo cute! She's doing so well.

We got our first snow storm and we are snowed in (or more like I'm not going anywhere!).

How'd you fair on the stretch marks? I didn't get any on my stomach, only a few on my breasts, but they are E's now! Yikes!

How's the weight? I only have 10 pounds to lose now. I am running on my treadmill and doing some light weights. I plan to get back to soccer by January, even though I could do it now.

It's so sad, but I only have 1 more month before I have to go back to work. Jayden is 7 weeks old today can you believe it?
