Jen, Bf'ing got off to a rough start with my dd because she was so sleepy and had no interest in eating. She was born at 38 wks, 6 lbs 2 ounces. She didn't suck vigorously, just fell right asleep. We had to undress her and the LC stayed with me to help get her on. I did get to nurse her early and try often, it's just that we never had any good nursing sessions.....so they brought in the pump and this aggresive pumping schedule that had me still trying to nurse her around the clock, but also pumping every 3 hrs around the clock-even through the night. My dd went down to 5 lbs 7 oz's but things got a lot better and nursing took off.
