Getting there...

Saw the pediatrician on Tues and got a prescription to help bring my milk in. It seems to be working and baby is feeding longer and getting more out of me. We're close to her birth weight (hopefully will be there today) and once we are, we can wean her off the formula and let her feed on demand.

Crossing fingers for a great weight today! (and a h*ll of a lot more sleep than I got last night)

Sleep will become a rare commodity so enjoy it while you can.

Hope Bean weighs in just right! Good Luck.

i hope everything works out with your milk!

With my dd, she was a little jaundice, so i fed her formula too those first few days to try and help things level back out.

Hopefully she's back to her birth weight :)

It's hard work, and it's hard to do hard work with no sleep. But you'll both be fine!

Here's hoping for a chubby baby!

Hope she weighed in well! feeding and weight are such a battle in the beginning but I promise after several weeks, BF is much better and easier than in the beginning.

I hope the appointment went well! Crossing my fingers and praying hard that little Bean is back up to her birth weight and that the b/f gets better!

Thinking about you lots!

Good luck with all the food/weight stuff.

Hope everyone in your house gets rest. :)

I hope today finds you well rested with lots of milk and a chubby baby!

This truly is 'the toughest job you'll ever love.'
