Holly three things done in the last month -- yay me!
I know that breastfeeding is best for the baby and want to give my son the best start. It seems the cards have been stacked against us a bit. He was a preemie and needed nourishment quickly so we had to use a bottle very early. He had a tongue tie which made it hard for him to suck. As for me, he was born a week before my breastfeeding class so I’ve had to go into this a little blind.
I thought we were doing ok, but went to a lactation consultant and realized he’s not getting as much as he should from breastfeeding and that I’m not producing enough milk. So I’m pretty disheartened today.
