Ok, this will be long b/c at the moment I am sooo stressed and have so many different issues going on.
Just started back to school 3 weeks ago, luckily my schedule is great so I can pump fairly easily. But, I can't pump enough so am now supplementing 3 of the 4 bottles dd takes while I'm away. At least we made it to 5 mos. before that!
Now, when I try bfing her, she gets very fussy and pulls away. This often goes on for about 10 minutes before she settles down and eats. B/c she's very small and the ped said we need to make sure she takes in at least 20 oz (which she is solely on the bottles while I"m away), now my dh thinks I don't have enough milk and everytime she gets fussy, he wants to give her a bottle. We've actually had a huge fight over this issue. My theory (and I've looked at kellymom.com too) is that she's fussy b/c she wants a faster letdown. Now I feel all alone b/c I no longer have my supporter. DH thinks I'm being silly and I know he just wants to make sure dd is not hungry, but its not helping me.
On top of it all, we've been dealing with major repairs from Tropical Storm Fay. And not getting much sleep either b/c dd goes to bed late while I have to get up early. She no longer sleeps through the night.
Thanks for letting me vent. Hopefully we'll make everything work out ok soon.
