    Re: help! about to give up...

    Have you been to a Le Lache League meeting? Or contacted a leader in your area? They are very helpful and most don't mind if you call in the middle of the night crying! They have lots of experience.

    Try different holds and positions. Side laying is one of my fav nursing positions. Position is just as important as the latch is.

    Re: help! about to give up...

    Try using the nipple shield again. Nursing is the best way to increase your supply. Babies can get more out than any pump can. So he has gained nearly a pound. That is good.

    I had spotting while breastfeeding in the early months, it's completely normal. What is your LO's diaper out put each day? How old is your LO? Are you EBF? Are you pumping? :)

    Re: Night nursing

    My DD is a night nurser too. And that is how she goes down for naps and bedtime. She wakes up multiple times a night, but we co-sleep so it makes it easy. Do you co-sleep? You are doing great!! :clap
