    I am getting the hospital to test my milk but seems like i have not enough calories in my milk.
    I have never heard of not having enough calories in breastmilk. Is she feeding from you or expressed milk? Is there any change you can express a bit first to get rid of some of the foremilk so she gets more hind ill - it's fattier so might help. Otherwise I suggest seeing a lactation consultant - they'll give you proper advice, not like my made up stuff!

    The tests are back....almost zero fat and not enough collegen in it. I have a genetic abnormality that means i don't produce enough collegen and seems it is the same with my milk. I am working with a lactation consultant and they think it is best to give her bits of breastmilk for the antibodies but formula for the bulk of her calories.

    ­čś×that sucks. I never knew anything like that could happen. I hope the formula helps.

    I am thinking it would almost be worth being pregnant again to rid myself of the constant pain of ibs.

    Feeling awkward and uncomfortable in my own "home". ILs have moved back in for 3 months (it's their house) and it's just as bad as I expected - I'm hiding in my room and too scared to even go make lunch as MIL is on yet another cleaning rampage in the kitchen

    It's only day 4...MIL is a housebound agoraphobic too so I know i won't get time alone in the house (or time with dd alone except for trips to shops and park)

    Just so fecking miserable right now, I don't have a "home" - a place to go to right now where I can just relax and enjoy myself and live my life
