    Re: Help Not Enough Milk?

    Thanks for the support. The problem is that I'm going back to work in two weeks and I'm scared that I won't have enough for her. When do you know if you have to supplement with formula?

    Re: Lost more than 10%

    Milkmaid,

    I'm so happy for you and your sister that you are making progress together. I hope that her baby begins to thrive with breastfeeding and that she will feel more successful!
  10. She slept five hours and still was sleepy

    Last night DD nursed a lot at 7 and then again at 9. She emptied both breasts. She slept last night (actually right now) from 9:45 until I woke her at 2. She appeared fine and in a deep slumber. I...

    Re: HELP - She will not stop eating

    What if now her demand is a lot less? What if she isn't getting the 21-22 oz recommended? I'm pumping because I've been blessed with milk. I'm storing it for times she doesn't latch/later.
