He's only gained one ounce! In two months! I've been feeding and nursing like it's going out of style, but to no avail. Now I have to supplement with formula-- blech. I've also had to re-up my efforts to maintain my breast milk supply. I stopped using a pump when I stopped working-- perhaps I should go back to it. He'll need a supply for when he goes back to day care in September anyway.
I'm just so upset that I haven't helped my baby. I thought he was getting bigger-- he felt bigger. His clothes fit differently. I love nursing him. And I hate bottles and formula. (Don't get me wrong, I have used formula for the other two, and have no problem with other moms who use formula. But I just didn't want it for Nico.)
