getting back in shape

well last week i decided i need to get out of the house, and i really miss working out so i joined baby bootcamp...its pretty cool we run laps with interval training in between...riley on the other hand DOES NOT like it--he hates the stroller, and unfortunately thats the beauty of BBC, you put the kiddos in the stroller and push them along as you run, and make faces at them as you do your strength training...ohwell, hopefully soon he will learn to like the stroller but untill then i think i may go crazy...

so after 3 frusterating weeks of nursing Riley, and finally visiting the lactation consultant today i have an answer at least. I have too much breastmilk and it all flows out in 5 minutes, essentially i and flooding Riley with milk and he dosent appreciate it, so he fusses and cries. The LC gave me some suggestions as to how to help fix the quick let down, and assured me that eventually Riley and my milk supply will get in sync with each other, but heres my issue...its been over 3 months already! shouldnt they be in sync by now??? its ok though im thinking that since i dont mind pumping, and since some women have the opposite problem of me maybe i should be a nice person and donate my extra milk (pump after he feeds) to the national milk bank...what do you think?? there are extensive tests i would have to go through to be accepted as a doner, but i really believe that donating (blood, milk, time) if you have it is the best way to rack up those positive karma points...i think i may do it! i wish i could sell it and make some money (and not feel so bad about being a sahm and spending all our money)
