She! Is! Huge! At least to us she is …

And we’re trying out a new style of breastfeeding. Although she’s CLEARLY getting enough food, I was concerned about my foremilk/hindmilk … it seems I have a slight imbalance due to oversupply and overactive letdown. I was doing one breast per feed, but that wasn’t making a difference, so on the advice of a good friend (thanks, Elisha!) I’m trying block feeding.
