So I haven't been on in a long time and when I check this page I see allot I mommas saying they need help or are frustrated cause -I'm not gonna lie- it's hard to breastfeed for some of us! But here's some hope for the light at the end of the tunnel for all you struggling mamas:

My sons name is Knight. He was born April 29th at 7lbs10oz even though my due date was May 16th. (Making him 1 month early) after birth while still in the hospital he got down to 6lbs 5oz even tho he was continuously eating. The doc said maybe I should supplement and I turned here for help. With reassurance from you lovely ladies I kept to breast feeding. I took Knight to his first doc apt and he was at 6lbs 7 oz so the doc said nursing was going pretty well but we will check each week on his weight till he's one month cause he lost so much and I had concerns I wasn't making enough milk still because again he'd be attached for hours. Turning to you again it was suggested I might have oversupply which might have been what was wrong. I followed the advice given about block feeding (which hurt at first) but it stopped hurting and I could do regular nursing again pretty fast. So on June 3rd I went in to check on him and get gas drops for his colic I was asked something that made me smile and almost laugh: "are you bottle feeding him now, he's gotten so big" he weighed 10lbs 7oz!

He's defiantly a happy healthy baby now and I wanted to thank this group or all it's support and hopefully inspire some that are having a hard time to not give up. (I did supplement a few oz a day for a week but that doesn't mean I failed or gave up, I made sure my boy was cared for, so if the woman who mentioned she's trying everything to breast feed but feels like a failure if she can't: you are not a failure. You care for that baby regardless and while "breast is best" there's no shame in saying your body just can't. Keep up with pumping and I hope it gets better for you but if not YOU HAVE NOT FAILED.)

I like them allot! :) did the C thing happen on purpous or did it just happen? My two have a theme I noticed after they where born, both mean a position of nobility. :) Rhyinn and Knight. If I have a third boy at some point I'm gonna keep the theme. :)
