Im so pleased to see you are still working on the breastfeeding. It can be a long hard road sometimes, but well done for getting this far. It is great to take it one day at a time, babies needs change, and the best thing is to always offer the breast first. For myself, I would just feed and feed, but if you have started to give regular formula and bub seems to be handleing that ok, keep giving the breast first at all times, and a small top up with the formula. Keep your sanity, and relax, dont let the weight charts cause you too much concern. hugs, marie.

DD was 12 weeks yesterday so I made it to my goal! Trying to focus on that.
We just got an urgent spot at tresillian for tomorrow so we're going back for another 4 night stay. I'm really looking forward to having the support around me and getting things back on track a bit.
I'm still going to slowly wean DD, now that I've persevered for 3 months and done everything I can to give her as good a start as I could, I think I need to give myself permission to move on.

I hope other people reading this and going through the same thing can at least see they're not the only one. I don't feel like I've coped particularly well but we've come this far!

Three months is amazing, considering where you started, and you deserve so many and and (I could go on!)

hi cue, all the best for the four day stay, I hope you feel really rested, and that they give you some strong support. You have done a great job getting to 12 wks, I bet at your first post, 12 wks seemed like ages away. Adjusting your diet might not be so difficult, would finding formula to suit be harder?? easier?? You are a wonderful mum, and what ever you decide to do, your baby will be better for having had the breastfeeding for this time. You are strong and capable of anything, remember that. hugs Marie.

Can I just say that you have done such a great job and you are obviously an extremely dedicated mother to have gone through all of this and still be breastfeeding. You must be so proud of yourself to have reached your goal. I also had serious supply issues but probably would have thrown my hands up if there were allergies/intolerances as well.
Just in terms of your concerns re the supply line in public...I did it in public occasionally, usually in a parents room so I had a bit of privacy. I tended to feed before or after going out. If things were desperate, I'd feed with just boob while out and then do the sns top up when I got home. Also remember, as bubs gets older, she won't be feeding constantly and you'll have a more predictable routine so you can time feeds around outings.
All the best for your stay at Tresillian. I hope that you can work together to find a system that works for everyone.

Just one small suggestion about the green poo. Probiotics, friendly gut bacteria, have been shown to help babies with colic symptoms. Most babies with colic in one study got better within a week of being given lactobacillus reuterii. My daughter had similar issues following antibiotics, she was windy, grumpy and had green mucous poo. I took some blackmore's probiotics with l. Reuterii and gave some to her, and she was better in a week. It was really a huge relief, because up til then I'd been cutting out dairy and it hadn't helped one little bit. Here's where I found that:
