So DD was 9lbs 15 oz when she was born. (Yup, it hurt). She is 24 days old and at her appointment on Monday, she was only 9lbs. Which is exactly what she weighed the week before. Naturally, my doc has recommended supplementing with formula. This has been an incredibly emotional challenge for me, and now a logistical one as well. Anyone out there supplementing? How do you work it in so that it doesn't cut back your milk supply? Oh, and have a life, too? My LC suggested BFing 12 times a day and pumping 6 times. I love DD and I want to BF, but that's not happening.
Being a mom has humbled me.
