    AND WHERE BACK!! Bubs is a lot happier today feeding again like normal and even going down for naps.

    I shouldn't have given her formula in the morning and then at night the other day.

    Hopefully things keep up like this. Yippeee!

    Ditto!! i WISH i could have dosed ds up on formula for a full nights sleep! ohhh what i would have given for that!!! and i would not have felt guilty at all.
    ds learnt to slep longer as he got older. its pretty normal for 7week olds to feed 2 hourly or less round the clock on breast milk.

    Yes still going well! She feeds every 2 hours sometimes 3 during the day but is much more content afterwards and then sleeps a long stretch at night.

    Hang in there! You're going great

    BF'ing can be extordinarily challenging but very VERY worth it.

    For various reasons I mix fed my DS and I too was really shocked at the difference in behaviour from when he had BM to FF. If he had BM he was fussy, didn't sleep, always wanted more etc. With FF I had this content little baby who lay there any did cute baby things. FF can be so very tempting in the early weeks/months but when you get it all sorted it becomes really easy and convenient plus you get a cure-all for hunger, thirst, putting your baby to sleep, comforting them, giving medicine, etc.

    It is definately rewarding, I'm going to ditch the formula so its not even around.
    Good on you 😀 you can do this and you will reep the rewards for pushing through you will find you most likely won't need to take any supplements especially if your feeding in demand your milk supply will boost, when your supply establish itself your breast will rarely become engorged but don't worry that doesn't mean there is no milk trust me I could never express a lot either but I successfully breastfeed ds2 for just over 12 months so don't worry about expressing too much coz how the pump works and how bub sucks are different your baby will always get more milk than a pump.
