My son is almost 8 weeks old. He was born 5 weeks early, and spent 4 days in the NICU. Because I had an emergency c-section with some minor complications, my son was given a bottle and a pacifier before I was even out of recovery, and I got no skin-to-skin bonding with for the first 10 hours of his life. We tried bf in the hospital, and it was okay until my milk came in. I pumped after that, but he couldn't seem to latch. We saw an LC, and she gave us a nipple shield that seemed to help, but the pediatrician was concerned about his weight loss, so we had no room for error and he was fed with bottles (both formula and expressed milk) for the next 3 weeks or so. Once he was up over 7 pounds, the pediatrician told me I could go back to working on bf, and she had me start taking fenugreek to help with my supply. At 5.5 weeks of age, my son finally seemed to get the hang of bf, and I was thrilled. However, I feel like we've slipped back... he feeds really well at the beginning of a feeding, for about 5 minutes or so on each side, but then he starts screaming and bouncing his head off my shoulder, rooting around a bit, when I go to burp him. So I'll feed him some more, again switching sides about every 5-7 minutes, but he gets progressively more and more inefficient, and after 45 minutes to an hour, he's STILL hungry. So my DH has had to put together formula bottles again. I don't understand what's happening. I'm really worried that the fenugreek isn't doing anything and my milk supply, not having been well established in the early days (I wasn't very consistent with pumping because I was so exhausted) won't be enough to carry us through the next months. I go back to work on Monday, and I'm so frustrated I can barely sleep anymore, which I know isn't helping. And I know my frustration is radiating to my baby. On top of all this, despite two weeks of nearly exclusive bf, I'm not losing any weight, so I worry that my diet isn't right, too. Help! I don't want to give up, but it's just not any fun for me.
