8 Weeks

We had our first week alone.  Meaning, I was alone with both girls for the first time this week.   All went well! 
 I am still working on my milk supply and I have a plan to feed both non stop for the next 4 days to see if my supply will increase.   Thus far I have been feeding them every 3 hours and then topping them up with 20 mls of donor milk or formula.  
Here are a few pictures from this week.

Nevaeh/ Milena

Milena weighed in at 8 lbs 6 oz 

Nevaeh weighed in at 7 lbs 6 oz


  1. Good luck increasing your milk supply. You are doing great - the girls are adorable and looking so big! I can't believe our babies are already two months old.

  2. Milena looks so surprised at what mummy said!!! lovely lovely picture! you are taking such fantastic care of the kids. awwwwww, cant wait to dote on mine too

  3. Wonderful to hear that you are able to breastfeed them so well! I'm impressed! Erik is at the moment on 100% breastmilk aswell but future will show whether it will increase fast enough when he grows. I hope so and I wish you all the best with increasing milk supply.
    Many hugs from Mumbai

  8. I stumbled across your blog, my partner and I are looking into surrogacy, we are in Vancouver too. I can't find how to contact you by email, or if that's an option, but would be interested in your experiences and advice if possible. Thanks!

    1. Hi Scott, I was just going through some of my blog and came across your request. I am so sorry I did not see it before today. If you are still interested in chatting about Surrogacy with us I am more than happy to do that. My email is and if you are already on your journey to surrogacy I wish you all the best and it would still be great to have a connection in Vancouver with another IP family.
