    Default Just want to pat myself on the back...

    Okay, no frustration here! Just good vibes!

    We had our one month check up yesterday, and LO is up to 8 lbs, 14 oz! He was 7 lb, 1 oz at birth and dropped to 6 lb, 2 oz at the hospital. I was encouraged to supplement and only did a couple times....then LO totally refused any formula. (that will show them

    I am so thrilled! Now I know how a normal newborn can nurse and gain without extra pumping and fortifying breast milk with formula (had to do that with my twins). And it makes his marathon/cluster nursing all evening long worth it, and it will keep me from worrying that I am not making enough if he has to nurse all evening.

    to us all nursing our newborns!
