    Regarding the housework...can you get your older ones to help out? They are old enough to help with some stuff.

    Thankfully for me I was already a lazy housekeeper so I don't sweat the house looking perfect!

    hi sorry its 1/2 oz a day ,
    No problem 1/2 oz a day is great. We like to see an average of 3-7 oz/week, so he's right on track with that.

    It's so true that formula will not cure the fussiness. I frequent another message board and all the formula fed LO's are just as fussy and needy as our breastfed LO's. The only difference is anyone can feed them and that is not the case with our babes. Breastfeeding is so demanding in those first few weeks especially during the growth spurts. I myself was ready to quit and there were quite a few times I remember wishing I had never started (granted these thoughts usually occurred at 3am). The truth is it really does get easier and you just have to keep pushing yourself past the moments when you just want to quit. I love nursing my daughter now and I think most mom's would love to BFeed if they just allow themselves to get past the super hard begining.

    I can see now why it is encouraged to stick it out for 6 weeks before you make a decision to switch to formula.
