Lllmeg, he was taking in 1-2 oz of formula + pumped milk every 4 hours during that weight increase. I hate giving him formula, because he really doesnt seem to know when he is full, and spits up only on those feedings. I usually end up stopping him short if his belly feels distended. To be fair, he has never shown signs of being full before. Hes never rejected the boob, so to speak, because he tends to fall asleep early.
Also, i already had to take b-12 supplements, as it is pretty much a requirement for being vegan
I cant remember if i already mentioned it or not, but my LC told me to no longer worry about waking him at night for feedings, let him lead/cue night feedings on his own, but hes only feeding for maybe 10 minutes every 3-4 hours since ive been doing that. And its been hell to try and wake him up. Its like hes immune to cold rags, and we have crap a/c so hes always down to his diaper right now as it is. Also, im a e/f. And i have to hold my breast, and holding him, its hard to do rubbing/tickling wake up methods, i can do them, but usually only with my pinky. Right now, ive been doing the switch method, because otherwise he'd never nurse more than 5 minutes. I dont think hes ever emtpied a breast yet either, but i couldn't be for sure on that. Whats more, i found out my insurance covers my rental pump, but unfortunately the hospital rents them through the womens gift shop, and they dont bill, so i dont think the insurance will actually reimburse me.
Feedings have stunk the last two days. My fiance kept us at his dads house for 7 hours yesterday for baby visit, but he told me wed only be there a few hours, and i felt terribly uncomfortable breastfeeding there, and i think my son could tell i was upset and was getting frustrayed feeding.
