Re: so sad...
I can sympathize with your plight. My beloved sister in law was a devoted determined breastfeeding mother with her first child and she desperately wanted to repeat her positive experience with dd2. However, for reasons unknown, my niece who nursed constantly non stop failed to gain weight. The poor child looked starved even though diaper output was good, even though she had normal bowel mov'ts, even though my SIL had encouragment, support and did everything correctly.She chose to wean rather then continue to struggle
My SIL went on to have another a child who nursed like a champ for 18 months.
Her children are all adults ,and to this day we still rack our brains trying to figure out what went awry with dd2. She is now BTW a college graduate, heading for law school. So it all worked out ok.
