Mackay had mentioned before that in Africa, women breastfeed for 4 or 5 years because it's a guaranteed clean foodsource for their kids. Even if they are starving, they will still produce at least a reasonable amount of milk, since the body digests itself rather than let breastfeeding kids go without.
This I can entirely believe. Right after breakfast, my stomach must have gone in to "shut down" mode because the entirety of breakfast came up later. After that, no food could pass my lips - water only. Yet, the evening feed (which I still express out in order to give Noo some extra and/or freeze for such eventualities as nursery) was only 1 ounce down on the normal, and this morning's feed seems to have been half an ounce down, judging by the leftovers.
So all that milk came from me, not my food. Where are my nice pre-pregnancy trousers?
Meanwhile, the fuckers two doors down were having a drum & bass style marquee party in the back garden until 3am last night. I had to go round *five times* to explain that we were si9ck, Nora was sick and everything was rattling in the house.
not that it made any difference. Bastards. So, I think I've had about 3 hours kip.
