Re: not as in love with BFing as I thought....help?
Congrats on your baby boy coming home! I pumped for my 25 weeker for 6 months before she was strong enough to feed from the breast. It was a pain, but I was willing to do whatever it took to make sure my baby got breastmilk. I have a 4 month old, full term baby now, and WOW...is nursing SO much easier. I pumped in the beginning to relieve the over supply, but once my supply regulated, there was no mess at all. It's so much easier not dealing with bottles, and having all the extra gear to lug around. I encourage you to stick with it. The more you put baby to breast, the easier it will be. It sounds like you have more milk than you will need, so just feed baby from the breast and let your supply regulate. Good luck!!
