First 24 hrs still in hospital, please advise- Happy Update!
Hi ladies. I'm back on after 3.5 years!
Yesterday I delivered a 9lb 13 oz baby boy .
Obviously he is big (no diabetes)
He has screamed all night long
I have been alternating breasts for last 10 hours- havent stopped
The nurses want me to "top him up w formula" because he is screaming so much . They say he's obviously so hungry this will help.
They say to give it in a cup and he'll sip at it like cat and it won't interfere w latching , etc
Is this right?
I thought that formula right now will just make everything else harder later?
Can anyone please give me words of wisdom
