I have a 5 weeks old already and have not been successful with breastfeeding. My daughter was born at 36 weeks; but with a great weight 6.11 and no complications at all. She did great with breastfeesing the first three days.She started having trouble eating the day we were coming home. The day after we got home, I scheduled and went to see the doctor because I was very worried that she wasn't eating. My poor baby tried so hard and would get frustrated that she could not eat. She dropped down to 5.4 had no wet or dirty diapers and that was when I started her on the formula. At that point, I was just worried that she would not continue losing weight that fast. We were told that it was the medication I was talking for the pain was making her drowsy and tired; therefore, she would easily fall asleep and feel weaker. I was very tired and frustrated as most moms because of everything. All I wanted was to offer her the best, and during the first two to three weeks I was extremely down. As a result, I did not continue doing all of the great things such as skin to skin, still put her on the breast, pump and so far. All I was focused was to make sure that she was eating. After my little one started looking much better and gained some weight, I started trying again. I have almost quit trying two times already; but something tells me that I could still try until I go back to work at least. I am not totally dry. I still have something but it is very little. I don't even pass half an ounce when I pump. Any tips? Is it still worth trying? My daughter is doing great (she loves the bottle, don't them all?). She is 7.15lbs and looks very healthy. Mom here, still feels sad that I am not breastfeeding.
