I have a 2 and 1/2 week old and a 17month old/ I have been BF the newbaby and was hoping to cont. BUT she is having a hard time eating and staying awake to feed. She wakes every 4-6 hours and then only nurses for at most 10min.!!! After her feeding she throws most of it back up. We have to go to be weighed about everyother day--- I KNOW BREAST IS BEST--- but I am so worried all the time and I feel like it taking away from my 17month old son. Would you change her over to bottle? If she was on the bottle I would know just how much she is really getting in her short meals and I feel like I would have more time for my son, knowing that the baby is fed enough---
I know I could pump, but in doing so I would loss twice as much time with my son. Taking the time to pump between her feedings....
Really need help!! Please dont bash, I know that breast milk is best, but in this case is it really??
