Hi there...I'm new here...this is my first post.
I really need support....I'm just totally worried about my new DS. He's a little over 2 wks old now...at his 2 wk visit, he still hadn't regained his birth weight (he lost 9 oz and still hasn't regained them back). I'm wondering if I'm making enough milk. After reading through some other posts that others have written, I'm thinking maybe I'm doing okay...but I really need some support. My mom and MIL are very unsupportive of me BF-ing and its starting to annoy me!! DS feeds for what seems like hours on end the past couple of nights. This morning (after being up all night - at least every hr to hr and a half), I gave him 1 oz of formula and he has been content ever since. I've been tracking his wet diapers/soiled diapers and he's been great with them. He feeds about every 2-3 hrs normally - but these past couple of days, it has been almost constant starting at 6pm until at least 3-4 am. Is all of this normal? Is he cluster feeding because of a growth spurt? I really appreciate all of your help. BF-ing didn't work with my DD because she was supplemented and didn't want the breast which devastated me (and I didn't have the support I needed to hang in there). Just wondering if you can offer any suggestions. I need my mom and MIL because I had a c-section and they are helping me with my 2 yr old DD, but with their negative words, I feel like I'm in a battle. Thank you sooooo much for listening!!
