We had our 2 week MCHN apponitment and found Vesper's only gained 50g in 6 days. My attachment has been bad since the weekend, I could feel it wasn't right, and apparently that's why she's feeding so often and for so long. While my milk is in, MCHN doesn't think it's fully come in yet, hence no engorged feelings.
We've worked on attachment and I feel a lot better but we're in a strict 3 hour, 15 minutes each side plus expressing into a bottle for dh to give after that feeding, schedule for 24 hours and see her again tomorrow to see how much weight she's gained.
I felt so good about breastfeeding and now I just feel horrible. The mchn was talking about needing formula top ups over the weekend but I'm not happy to do that. I'd rather keep up the schedule as long as we need to.
She's supposed to go to sleep after each feed so she doesn't waste any energy but she just dozed for two hours and has finally fallen asleep. Mchn said that's probably why she won't sleep in her bassinet, too, since she's too hungry too settle.
I don't really have a question, just needed to feel sorry for myself a little - I feel like I've been starving her!
