I lost 22 lbs in 8 months... with a bit of determination and common sense information from this book.
You are a great mommy, do not for a minute let yourself think otherwise. You and your LO are in my prayers. Focus on loving your LO and enjoying your time together.
I don't know if it might help your healing process to write to the hospital administration and LC to let them know how poorly you were treated and the problems it caused you.
I just talked to her a couple of days ago, and she's STILL having problems with anemia even though its been 3 mos and even though she was given a blood transfusion after giving birth. She hasn't been able to produce enough breastmilk for her dd, and eventually stopped completely.
I've been thinking about it, and I'm wondering now if she's prone to being anemic anyway...her symptoms seem pretty familiar to how she's felt in the past pre-baby, though not so magnified, and it seems like a real possibilty to me.
So anyway I just wanted to share that on the off chance that you might want to get yourself checked out for that. If you were anemic, and it could be corrected right away, it might make all the difference with milk production if you wanted to try to bring your milk supply back later on.
Mama, you're doing great! Feed the baby is the most important rule.
Just curious, what happened with the LC?
You are a great mama...as PPs said any bm is GOOD bm! :-)
Just wanted to tell you to enjoy your sweet baby girl!! Don't beat yourself up! You are a FABULOUS mama!!!!
My first son REFUSED to nurse. I feel your pain. You did good mama!

"So I was welcomed by the consolations of human milk; but it was not my mother or my nurses who made any decision to fill their breasts, but you who through them gave me infant food, in accordance with your ordinance and the riches which are distributed deep in the natural order." -St Augustine
