Comment on Feed The Baby: When Supplementing Saves Breastfeeding by Darcy.
My third baby is now 11 months old and we started out with me staying another 6 nights at another hospital. We survived me pumping and sending milk home with daddy those nights. My second daughter was failure to thrive and we worked around the clock with nursing (each side twice) and then pumping and offering what I pumped every three hours around the clock. It was scary, but having had done it the first time with an over supply, I knew that wasn’t the problem… and sure enough, once she/ WE figured out how to nurse properly, she started to gain weight. She’s now entering kindergarten as a lean and muscular girl!
