See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My dh and I just found out that we are expecting our third baby. This was a huge, but very much welcome surprise! I really, really want to exclusively breast feed this time. With dd, my first child, I had no interest in BF'ing, because I didn't know anything about it and I was very modest. With ds, my second child, I tried to breast feed. Ds was born prematurely and spent time in the NICU. I tried everything, went to three different lactation consultants and ds would never latch on. I tried kangaroo care(skin to skin contact) and pumped for 3 months. My milk supply was ridiculous, about 6 oz a day, even with raglan. This time I am determined that this peanut will to get within 10ft of formula, bottles or pacifiers. I haven't even been to my first u/s to determine dd yet, but I'm trying to learn everything I can to have success with BFing. Any tips, advice or anything you could give, I would be so grateful.
