    ooh how exciting-a post just for me! I feel all important :blush: :hugs:

    hmmmmmm-well, we had another weigh in with our health visitor yesterday. Brooke actually lost 2oz so Iv been advised to top her up with formula or EBM as a matter of urgency. :cry:

    I was quite upset :cry: so got shown through to a private room where I was lectured on the importance of eating well, drinking enough etc etc. :dohh:
    Anyways-for the last 24-ish hours now I have been giving Brooke EBM through a breastflow bottle. The monkeybum has been gulping down about 4oz at a time and then sleeping for england. She only woke every 4 1/2 hours last night for food which is such a vast improvement on the night before and I think we're both feeling better for it today. Iv been pumping every now and again when I start to feel slightly full too.

    We've got enough frozen EBM to last us another few days so I think Im going to combine feed. I reckon Im going to give her formula during the day and breastfeed her at night. That'll give us the compromise she needs I think and hopefully get her to put some weight on so Im not worrying about her so much all the time and can start enjoying her a bit more :baby: :cloud9:

    Thanks again for your post! Tis very kind and much appreciated :hugs: xx

    thanks for all the replies! they're lovely :cloud9:

    Iv really really really enjoyed being around Brooke today-she is soooooooo much more content and happy. She's still on EBM too which is nice to know. She's probably got another day or so of it before formula.

    If any of you are interested there's some pictures of Brooke in the photo gallery as she is a 'big!' 3 months old today :cloud9:

    thanks again for thinking of us. I do really appreciate it :cloud9: :hugs:
