One thing we didn't try until last night...
The lactation consultant (whose name is also Therese) mentioned that by this age, Therese (our Therese) is receiving enough calories during the day and is possibly just waking up expecting to eat, but not needing to. Did we not see this at three in the morning when she didn't actually FUSS when my she wasn't getting her normal nighttime snack? Who understands anything at 3 in the morning. So apparently my body doesn't need my brain and has decided to cut her off from this feeding without my permission. The audacity.
Last night when she woke up at 3 and I again tried to nurse and it didn't work, I gave her to David so I could stumble into the kitchen and muster up the strength (mentally, physically, and emotionally) to fix her a bottle, thinking that this was going to become the nightly norm for a while. When I returned to the room, she was sleeping next to her daddy. SERIOUSLY! And just how long did she sleep? Until 6... that's right. No food, just mommy and Daddy! Is that not precious and awesome? She even fell right back to sleep after that until 7:30. I feel like a new woman! Praise God!
Isn't that a face that says, "I don't need it, I just want it... hehehe"
