Breast feeding has been really complicated for me. You would think its something as simple as put the nipple in the mouth, baby drinks and your good to go. I got mastitis after I started feeding my daughter better at month 1. It was horrible looking. Of course I got it Thursday evening praying I could get into the doctors on Friday but I couldnt. They did however prescribe me antibiotics that I picked up at the pharmacy. It was so painful. On top of that I had a clogged duct which was also painful and a pain in the butt! I had to massage it for days. I sat in a hot bath and held my breast under the water and tried to massage it for 40 minutes. It took several days for it to go away. After seeking more help then reading online everywhere I took my problems and concerns to the breast feeding help forum on here and got back really GREAT advice from a mom who has been there and done that. Telling me if I dont need a stock up supply to go back to work or something to stop pumping. BEST ADVICE YET about breast feeding. My breasts are finally slowly starting to regulate the milk. Sometimes my daughter will sleep 4 hours at night and it messes things up again and they almost get engorged but I will wake her up and make her feed a bit. She still struggles when shes fully awake and more hungry to not choke on the milk that is just pouring out and choking her. Milk gets everywhere, she screams and cries because she is drowning basically. Other than that its getting better.

I also wanted to share photos throughout all my chats. Our first breast feeding photo. She was 2 minutes old.

Today I went on the special k website to help me lose weight over the next 2 weeks starting Saturday. I think with breastfeeding and walking daily its helping me SLOWLY lose weight and keep off since the baby has been born. I lost 2 lbs so far. Which is alot considering how I gain so fast by just eating. It seems promising, we will see.

Hey girls, Im Steffany (captain obvious lol) my ds Pierce is 28 months old and dd Solaris is (almost) 4 weeks born September 5th at 10:14 am via scheduled c-section. I started off ebf but once home started giving bottles of formula due to convenience and only nursing when I can, Im very torn about trying to re-establish a supply and just pump and nurse or go all the way to formula. Im very happy to be a mommy to a newborn again even though I forgot how hard not sleeping is lol. Will post pics in a minute

Lovely pics ladies

God convenience of the bottle, SO JEALOUS! I so would be bottle feeding if I could afford it. Breast feeding is so exhausting and time consuming and inconvenient at all the wrong times especially when your boobs are as big as watermelons and you have to hold it up.

Sad thing is with the government shutdown WIC is one of the programs that will stop with it and ALOT of moms are on it.

Good!! Any little amount will make you feed great. I was told skin to skin contact helps alot with making your milk come. I did that in the beginning. Also when she takes the bottle do skin to skin and try to pump right afterwards. But I would only do every other breast like you would to feed her until your supply is established because you do not want to get engorged!!
