I am a first time mom of the most wonderful little girl. she is almost 6 weeks old. We started out nursing at the hospital, but after 2 days the nurses said that she was hungry and dehydrated and that I needed to supplement with formula. Reluctantly, I did. We still tried nursing, but it became increasingly difficult. (long story) And pretty soon, we were exclusively using a bottle. I feel so strongly about BF and would really like to give it another shot. I can still get milk to bead up on my nipples when I squeeze, so does that mean there is still hope? I really want to do this, not just for my LO, but for myself. I absolutely love the way it feels to have my daughter so close to me in that way. One little problem..not alot of support at home. When I try to nurse, my DH thinks I am starving the baby (because of what the dr. and nurses said at the hospital). He thinks I'm nuts for crying so much over it and says that both of us were given formula and we turned out fine. That's why I'm here. I need encouragement and support from somewhere. What do I need to do now, today, to get started back on the right track. I will do anything it takes. Thank you for ANY feedback!
