After supplementing for the past 5 weeks, I finally feel positive about my milk supply and decided to begin only BF. We are on 3rd day of only breast milk from my breast. He has been attached to my breast the last 2 days and then today he is extra sleepy and will only eat for a few minutes. I just put him on the scale and he is down about 2 oz since his weight check on Monday!!! Usually he would have gained at least 6-8 oz in 5 days, now he gained none and dropped 2.
My breasts feel very light and smooshy and my nipples seem smaller and softer then they have been. I was told that its b/c he is emptying my breast but I am starting to think he isn't getting enough or sucking right and my supply is on its way down again.
His latch changed too since I started only BF. Before he would latch on and suck hard and now it is hard to keep the nipple in his mouth! It slides out or he pushes it out. They were bigger when I was only BF a few times a day and pumping the rest.
I am really concerned about his weight. He is peeing the 6-8 wet diapers, but has pooping habits are unpredictable so we don't judge by that. He poops maybe once per week. I am about to give him the bottle again just because I am scared he is gonna continue to lose more.
Can anyone help me out?
