    Well i decided on friday i was NOT gonna keep pumping my body with anymore of those shitty drugs that the hospital put me on so i stopped on friday (well thursday as i didn't take fri dose LOL)

    I confided in my MW who didn't shout lol said as long as i felt ok she didn't see a problem sooooo .....

    We checked and i found out today i could try breastfeeding!!!!!

    And i did!! :headspin::happydance:

    She took to it and had her first feed this afternoon after i got the ok, i just have to simulate my milk and do skin to skin and express every 3hrs to get my milk up as im 10 days behind everyone else normally is lol!!!

    im soooooo chuffed its unbeliveable, felt werid but im proud i did it :)

    don't know how chuffed ill be at 3am in the morning but hey lol

    Well done hon :) If you can get Gav to take Maddie for a while so you can have lots of skin to skin, a nurse in would be ideal. Eat and drink plenty, oats are good for supply and let Ellie feed feed feed whenever she wants, that should all help. Good luck :)
