@sarahf - back to birth weight is GREAT NEWS!!! Well done!!!
Try not to be so hard on yourself. Having a baby is HUGE and you're doing a great job!
@sarahf well done on getting bubs back to birth weight and good strong weight gain. Isla just passed her birth weight at her weigh in yesterday at 3 weeks and it was such a relief. Don't feel guilty about mixed feeding, we are lucky to have really great formula available now. The only time a mummy should feel guilty in regards to feeding is if they are not feeding their baby at all!
re bra size, I only went from B to C when pregnant and then to a D when my milk came in. It's hard to predict. I second the suggestion of starting with crop top feeding bras. They are also more comfortable to sleep in as you need to sleep in something to hold the breastpads in. Something which I learnt the hard way after waking with a soaking wet top!
i was initially worried that my smaller breast size would mean not enough milk but it doesn't seem to be a problem and actually may help as she can latch on easily.
@ScubaGal you poor thing getting whooping cough. Still better now than after bubs is born. We are terrified about Isla catching it before she is immunised. Especially after poor little baby Rieley passed away from it recently.

Ah bugger I just re read your post! Your after a different association to that one.
Baby brain here!!
An F @KitiK! Wowza! I think DH would actually go nuts if mine got that big and he wasn't allowed anywhere near them!! I've taken yours and @Bellydance's advice and ordered some croptop type bras. They seem to go from B-F in the one bra so hopefully I'll be covered (haha!!). Think I'll need to start wearing breast pads soon, the colostrum leakage is getting heavier.
@ScubaGal, hope you've got some time off work to recover and it doesn't take too long. Can't believe there's still 15% that get it even when immunized. Scary.
@Bundle of joy, my parents are finding it hard to get the vaccine in country SA. Crazy that the news/Drs going on about people not being immunized and then you try and can't get it!
Yep an F after being a c cup all my life - i took pics bc I reckon they were perfect and If I could ever afford a b00b job thats what Id want them to look like! I have gone back to normal size c after bf though :/ cant complain - at least I didnt loose size.
I think I'm up to 16DD from 12C pre pregnancy. That said I still have room to grow in them.
I think I was in 14D until about 7months prego.
Any ideas or tips for windy bub? He's sad just at night and I can feel the wind and see he's upset as he pulls up legs and tummy sounds. During the day he seems ok and burbs much easier. I've got some natural drops from chemist. Hanging out til he's a month and I can use gripe water.
But any thoughts or experience appreciated
ps I suppose we should have a new thread for bubbies born etc or do we just keep using this one? Conscious of not taking up this space from the ladies still due
