    Wow, what a wonderful update! You've done an awesome job, mama. Proof that so many breastfeeding issues can be solved with time, persistence, and patience!

    Thanks for everyones support! Yesterday I didn't bottle feed him once, just BF ...some feedings go well and others not so much. Today is rough, he just wants to sleep, compressions dont keep him sucking he is just sleepy. The second i take him off he wakes up and cries. Is he wanting to comfort suck or is he not gettin enough?

    That's so great that you've been able to EBF!

    What you are describing sounds pretty normal. Babies like to be close to mama and suck while they sleep. I kept my son in a sling a lot to help him stay asleep. If weight gain and diaper output are good, then he is getting enough milk.

    Hopefully all goes well and i can continue to EBF! i will take him in after the weekend for a weight check. Also, he did get his shots on thursday so this maybe why he's so lethargic? I dunno. I am staying in today so we can be uninterrupted, so when he wants to feed its available. Im going back to work on the 17th so having this established will help out alot.
