If you don't need te breastpads I'll take them! But if you still use them, I can just pick some up. I have been using some but need more.

I am also block feeding by just doing two feedings in a row on one side and then switching to the other side for the next two feedings, and so on. It was just easier for me to figure out that way but I'm still experimenting.

Thanks again for all the tips!

I'll bring them tomorrow. I (thankfully) haven't needed them for several months now.

That works! I never thought to do it that way because I had a snacker. There was rarely an actual feeding

Yeah sometimes if he just has a small snack, I might even do three feedings on one side! But so far it's easy to keep track of and seems to be working to do two feedings per side. And - last night he slept 4 and 1/2 hours before waking up - a new record! And he hasn't had any major vomiting spells in the last two days! I love finding something that actually works!
