I am sick right now I am so upset. I have had a long road with bf my son, he is 5.5 months old now. He nursed hourly for 4-4.5 months or so, leaving me with 20-40 min to do anything at all. It was such a rough road, but it meant so much to me to bf that I stuck it out with a lot of tears and frustration but I made it.
He will be 6 months 11/11, and at his 4 month appointment he was 14lb 8oz. He is now nursing every 2 hours, even with an earlier than I had planned intro to solids (just started at 5 months) one time a day, I make it myself and he's only had a few veggies. Thats not the issue here, tonight I thought I would see what he weighed as people keep saying he is skinny. It said 14.5 lbs (weighed me and him then just me) I know it's not reliable but its pretty close I am sure. He nurses enough, sleeps 10-12 hours at night and is otherwise happy. I am scared I will have to switch to formula, that what I am doing isn't enough for him or god frobid he is sick with something. Has anyone been here and managed to fix it without formula? I worked so hard I will be crushed if I fail!
