The Wait and See Approach

I not a patient person, so "wait and see" sounds more like "torture" to me. I've decided to try it with the breastfeeding an adopted baby who doesn't exist yet. I stopped pumping, which wasn't wielding much milk anyway. I will take the next step when I know what we are dealing with. I may use a supplemental nursing system to deliver formula to the new baby and attempt to stimulate my own milk production, but I'm not going to decide now. The pressure of making huge decisions about a situation that hasn't happened and has no guarantees of happening was driving me nuts. I'll wait until we get The Call before going insane with the choices...
