Awe, I'm not looking forward to shots at all! :( My daughter is almost 5 weeks, was last 10lbs 11ozs and trying to lift her head while laying on her belly already!

Haylee  is 10 weeks and weighs 10'9 and is 211/2 in and she is lifting her head real good also. Ktown u still doing good breastfeeding?

Yup! :) I'm going through a phase where I'm worried about my supply since my breasts have adapted to her demands so they don't seem as "full" anymore, (so everyone is telling me) I just still worry my supply isn't as good as it should be. I've started mothers milk tea to hopefully boost it, otherwise she's still doing really good. She's 10lbs 15ozs as of yesterday, I haven't measured her though! I really should, she was only 20 inches at birth!

As long as she still seems full I wouldn't worry...have u tried pumping between feedings to try to help increase some?
Blank
2020005_tn?1404435525
I have, but I literally get no milk out, maybe a few drops. I know some women can't pump but it still worries me, she's acting like she's constantly hungry even after she's done eating, it scares me!

She's done good the past few feedings, hoping it's just another growth spurt!

Maybe so. As a last resort if it gets to where u worry she isn't getting what she needs u can pump so u can measure

Not for good just to ease our mind.

Yeah I tried pumping and I don't get much out but I called a lactation consultant and she said some women can't pump much, I'm going to keep weighing her to make sure she's gaining good though.

I'm proud of u. I never liked putting my girls on my breast it made me uncomfortable. I pumped with both though so they got it but I just felt like they have so many changes in that first year I would eliminate one by just bottle feeding. I know I sound crazy. I just am not one to like change to much. Mine dried when she got put in the hospital and so she got it for a couple of weeks.

Thank you! It feels like my husband is really pushing me doing formula just because it's easier for him, but this is what I want to do! The first few days are most important so your LO got all the good stuff!I get you about change, too I hate it!

Yeah my hubby didn't like the pumping breast feeding thing cause he felt left out so it was ok either way for me
Blank
2020005_tn?1404435525
My husband doesn't really feel left out, he just hates whenever I want to go do anything I can't because I BF. I can't pump for crap!! I get maybe an oz between both breasts so I pretty much have to stick to her. And leaving the house is a little more stressful because I won't BF in public.

Why don't u just take maybe once a week or so and feed her then leave and get back before time to feed again. That will at least get u an hour or so to yourself
Blank
2020005_tn?1404435525
Yeah that's what I've been trying to do but I'm always stressed out that she's going to get hungry again before I leave, I need to learn 1 bottle of formula a week won't kill her haha.

U can also pump until u get her a full bottle pumped just do it a little everyday. By the end of the week u should have a feeding then get ready feed her then go then u have a bottle for hubby there for him to feed her.

I've actually been able to pump a lot more lately, I figured out how to get my milk to let down while I'm pumping so that's helped me to get a break. Chloe's 2 months old today, 11lbs 14ozs, can support her own head now and is doing really good lifting herself up on her belly. Cooing and smiling like crazy, I love it! :)

Haylee was 3 months on the 12. She has got to where she cries a lot though so she may have the colic idk
Blank

Chloe has too, my doctor told me during growth spurts they always cry more, and 3 months is another growth spurt. Hopefully it passes quickly! :(
