BF is so much harder than I thought it would be. LO lost 10.1% of his body weight in the hospital, but then started gaining again. Last night he seemed to keep wanting to eat, but was still hungry. Finally, I was in tears, so mom fixed an oz of formula. She sent me to bed and gave it to him. I got to sleep three hours and felt so much better when I woke up. He went right back to the breast this morning.
After a trip to the pedi today and then a BF support class, I found out he's not getting all he needs at every feeding, so I just have to watch his cues and supplement when necessary. That was such a relief. Just to have someone tell me what to do. We're keeping at it, but there is so much to learn.
