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!
Oooh nooo Ktowne, i know how that feeling is/: thats only one of the reasons why i couldnt BF anymore :( . .its a scary feeling, keep at it girl, im sure it'll get better, i hope you have better luck than me!(: stay optimistic! :D
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!
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.
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 admire you ladies still bf'ing it is best if you can continue but I stopped few wks ago he is still content & sleeps longer on the formula.
Had his 2+mnth check this week he weighs 12Ib 6ozs (not sure about length) butt he lifts head up
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! :)
