Milk Update #2
Sun, 08-12-2012 - 10:15pm

So I realized I never let you ladies know how the weight check went on Friday... I stayed strong and did not give Josh any formula as advised by my pediatrician. Instead, since I knew my milk had come in, I started nursing more frequently.... every two hours or less and just let Josh hang out on my boob. Well... we went from 7 lbs, 4 oz on Wednesday.... to 7 lbs, 10 oz on Friday! I knew I could do it and did NOT need to supplement!

Way to go glad you stuck to your guns! My milk came in on day 2 and Ellie is such a little stinker, she falls asleep on me all the time! I think I'll just have to feed her and then pump in between because she isn't staying awake. She pooping and peeing like a champ so I know she's eating good.

Glad its working out for you Megan!
