I am new to this board! In anutshell I am here because I want to make EVERY ATTEMPT to continue BF'ing as long as nature intended me to!
This is my second DD. With my first I was uniformed and only nursed for 4 weeks.
I would like to continue I just can't seem to relax about nursing. I over worry .
My DD is 3 weeks 6 days old
Low milk supply? I know sometimes you cannot get any expressed milk from pumping but I only get an qoz and a half combined. I rarely pump anymore as that was all I did was feed , pump , feed , pump. I honestly do not think it was building anything but stress.
I made the decision to stop and let nature take its course as long as Marilyn was happy and diapers were good.
She averages an ounce a day weight gain .
She still wants to eat every 2 hours ( not growth spurt that is every hour) I do not mind this , I am just concerned she is not getting enough that is why she is always hungry.
Her BM's have slowed down to 2-4 a day from 6-10?
She sometimes is not content after nursing really rooting for more...if I let her continue to suck she would be on the boob all day!
They say to listen for gulping ! She does but not for very long?
What will the signs be that my milk is going away or not enough?
How can I continue as I am worried I will not biuld any more supply than I have now .
I know this was a very spuratic post but Marilyn will be up any minute!
I REALLY enjoy nursing and want to continue for as long as possible!
