I've had a few comments where I've wanted to reply to you, but there's no email address so that I can do so and you don't have a blog so here goes...
Thank you for the encouragement on my lost post! And great idea about having all the same kind of "cake." You make a great point!
Sounds like you are on the right track to keep your supply going. 9 months is my goal too. To keep up my supply, I've been doing the 5am pumping which really seems to help and then before bed also. So pump at 5am, Kara eats at 8, 12, 4 and 7 and then pump around 9pm. Good luck :) I feel like we just have to eat enough to make sure we are supporting the training (and nursing!)
