I started work yesterday, and Evy stayed with my sister. I'm so glad that my sister is watching her because I didn't worry at all. I knew that Rebekah had everything under control, and I only called once to ask her to keep an eye on Evy's milk intake so I knew how much to give her every day.
Evy being with someone else made me realize something: she is at her busiest after Paul get's home. I realized that she slept for awhile after her morning feeding but I never caught on that she's often pretty content until around four or so. While at my sister's she ate once in the morning, and then my sister woke her to make sure she was fed and changed before Paul got there to pick her up (so considerate! Paul said that Evy was a breeze driving home despite a bit of traffic) but she only took about an ounce. However, once Evy was home she became hungry quickly and was pretty feisty for the rest of the night.
Yesterday was the first time, of course, for me to pump milk while at work. I got off to a pretty bad start because when I went to pump at 9am I realized that I'd forgotten the power adapter. I was just going to pop in some batteries that I had at work, but then I couldn't find any. So I had to wait until my lunch time to go home. Then a co-worker suggested a place I could get batteries and was able to just save time and stay at work. Other than that - it was pretty successful! I was able to get four and a half ounces at about 11am, however when I tried to pump at 3pm I really only got about 2 and a half. I'm not sure if I want to adjust my time frame just yet, as that is actually pretty close to how Evy feeds during the hours I'm at work. I would rather get more out of less pumpings, however I don't want to jeopardize my milk production by not pumping often enough. Today I think I'll pump at 10am and 2pm and see how that works.
