  1. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Oh my gosh....are you serious?
    see and that's what i'm afraid of... I don't know if it could or would escalate that far, but, I don't think I want to find out...:huh Hopefully she's doing okay...I...
  2. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Unfortunately, they asked me from jump if I was bf'ing and mentioned that her weight was not so good so the immediate next question was if I was supplementing with formula...

  3. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    I think maybe the way I interpreted what you had originally said the wrong way... I apologize, I sincerely apologize...
    I could class my experience in the same category as yours (had my DD at what...

  5. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    I wish there were more than two PCMs on base though.... our MTF isn't the best so they don't have as many docs as they should...
    I think the only route I can take would be to go with civilians...
  6. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    I agree <3
    It helps to have so much support and the replies in this thread have really helped me to think things over....
    I think I will try hard to build up my ability to breastfeed once more and...
  7. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Thank you so much! This was just the kind of thoughtfulness I needed right now... I've been so stressed since my DD entered this world because of what other people "know" and "believe" are right for...
  8. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Thanks for being so considerate...:o

  9. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Yess you're entirely right...
    lol except our MTF isn't so good because we don't have more than two PCMs on staff... lol go figure....I would have to find a way to go off base to get her seen and i'm...
  10. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Unfortunately, I got in touch with the tricare office at the MTF and they say they can't guarantee anything. I haven't yet contacted tricare over the phone yet, but that will be my next step for...
  11. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    For now yes...lol I don't get it much either.. she hasn't lost any weight since she was born and I was bf'ing in the hospital...
    Plus she has all the signs of a growing baby- her hair is growing...
  12. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Thank you for being so kind and understanding..I certainly didn't want to cause an uproar, i'm just an honest mom that was looking for some honest, compassionate opinions.
    Thank you for mentioning...
  13. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Ahhh, so that's it...
    I never much understood that... I don't honestly like her being too full for too long...I appreciate all of your thoughts and questions! thank you!
    My DD is going to be 4...
  14. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    I know all of this...I definitely appreciate you pointing it out though..
    i'm guessing you never had any difficulties breastfeeding and/or have a very supportive doctor? To be honest, in my...
  15. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Well.. to be honest..
    I do notice that she seems so full, to excess when I feed her with formula and stays fuller longer..
    when I seem to strictly breastfeed she seems to never get enough...
  16. Re: A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    I ask the question because it's not really as cut in dry as that, is it?
    I want to do what's right, but, if she's not putting on weight in a way that is acceptable by a doctor's standard, I guess...
  17. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Awwww thank you for being so sweet and supportive!!
    I think i'm going to take your advice.. definitely right now. Sigh... I hate when, along my journey, I keep hitting these darned bumps in the...
  18. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Hi!
    I think the last part of your question was for me?
    Nooo you're technically not supposed to feed anything in addition to milk/formula... I had read some of Dr. Jack Newman's articles on...
  19. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Hi all!!
    Just wanted to update on the situation!
    My daughter was in surgery at the end of June so I couldn't actually breastfeed her for some time after (about 6 hours) and I didn't have access to...
  20. A question of heart- continue to bf or use formula strictly?

    Hi All!
    Some of you might know my story as I posted a forum topic in the 0-3 month category ("producing enough milk & doc threatening me"-...
  21. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Btw ladies! just weighed DD today and she's 8 pounds and 8 ounces! Thats 3 ounces in 3 days!! if she keeps going like this, I can have her reach her goal of 11 pounds 14 ounces by the end of July!...
  22. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Ohhh...
    hmmmm I think i'm going to check into that right now. Thanks!
  23. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Lucky! lol
    i'm going to go ahead and see if I can find one of those, but most likely i'm stuck helping myself...sigh. They make accessing anything off post/base so hard!
    They totally can...life so...
  24. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Omg you're so right..I'm not sure about hnfs but gov't insurance, generally, they pay for something if a doctor can prove it's medical necessity. Otherwise they are so cheap with the wrong things....
  25. Re: producing enough milk & doc threatening me

    Omg it's totally that way...
    and they know you have no where to go because insurance is very specific when it comes to MTfs and whether or not they are close to where you reside.
    I think next time...
