update...

well I guess the Keflex is working- I don't have a fever today and my boobs are feeling a bit better. I decided to sacrifice the sheets for a few nights and go bra-less (OMG- stinky mess) BUT throughout the night I am leaking enough out that I am not feeling so engorged or full when I am feeding Henry. And that's a miraculous, wonderful thing. I am going to go 2 more nights like this and pray that this will lower my milk supply. I ran to Target this morning and picked up this AWESOME nighttime nursing cami- it looks so loose and comfy but also has a place for pads. My hope is it won't squeeze my boobs so tightly that I get so engorged but hold them enough that I won't create the great flood in our bed. We'll see. (Thanks Leslie for the Target bra tip- I had no clue "other" stores (besides Motherhood!) even sold nursing bras!)

Last night Henry slept from 11 to 5 (6 hours!!!) it was amazing :) And yes, I woke up soaked but like I said, NOT in pain. I will take soaked over pain any day. For now, my nursing spirits are up. I am too hesitant and superstitious to say that "It's going great!" but I will say I am hopeful. :)

Thanks ladies, for all the wonderful tips!!! What would I do without my momma friends?? :)
