Amazing news today - DD gained 170g in 5 days!!!!
I am feeling so much better about things now. The weight gain really reassured me that we have made the right decision for our baby girl. I can't even tell you how excited and relieved I was when we put her on the scales!! The nurses here were all so happy for us. So we're heading home tomorrow on a high.
Last night a few of the parents were chatting and I told them a bit about my reasons for being here and one of the mums started telling me that the comps must have ruined my supply. I knew I'd come across people like this, who think they know everything about BF from their own problem-free experience, and I wasn't sure I'd handle it too well. But I just told her that I know I did everything I could to make it work and that sometimes it's not what is best for baby, and I left it at that. I was pleased that I handled it ok, without getting upset or too defensive.
So other than my left boob aching like crazy, and a belly ache from eating too much thai food during our celebratory night out, today I feel pretty good
