I just had my 3rd child, and I was SO gung-ho about BF. I didn't even try with my 1st (NICU), had limited success with my second, until my ped advised me that he was losing weight and I had to do something about it.. and now I'm just so tired and frustrated.
I realize they eat a lot when they're wee, and I know he's growing even more because he was early.. and he's gaining weight (birth weight 6#7oz, yesterday he's at 7#10oz) But I'm EXHAUSTED. I've tried taking him to bed with me at night, but I can't sleep on my side, as tired as I am. He'll nurse on and on, but as soon as he drifts off to sleep and I move him, he'll scream and scream until I put him back on. Repeat, ALL DAY. I've started giving him formula at night because I'm just too tired to do it anymore by that time.
I don't know if my supply sucks, because when I pump, I'm only getting about an ounce out of each breast at a time. I started taking fenugreek last week, and it doesn't seem to be doing anything except giving me diarehha.
I know this is probably a big jumble of messy thoughts, but I'm so close to giving this up, and I hate that feeling. I just don't know what to do anymore.
