I have a 2 week old baby, and while I was in the hospital after delivering her I requested that an LC come to see me b/c I had questions and the baby wasn't latching properly. The nurses laughed off my request and I came home with sore and bleeding nipples. The baby nurse we hired told me to pump for a couple of days until I healed, and we fed the baby bm out of bottles. When I went back to actually breastfeeding her, the baby nurse suggested that I 'top her off' with an oz or so of expressed milk, to make sure she was getting enough and gaining weight. So now I breast feed several times a day and the baby gets expressed milk a couple of times a day (so dh can feed her), but she's eating about 3oz of expressed milk and I have no idea how much she's getting when she nurses. has anyone been in this type of cycle? Do I stick with it or try and change it? I won't give up giving her breast milk, that's not where I'm going with this post - - I just don't know if we're going about this the right way.
