When did your milk come in with 2 + child??
 
My milk didn't come in with my son until I was 6 days ppd so I was pupming after each feeding and supplementing at the begining. Do I have cause for concern with this one?? Everyone I talk to says thier milk came in a lot sooner with thier second + but I don't know anyone IRL who had a problem with thier first that can answer this question for me. I was under a lot of stress when DS was born and had a major move when he was only 2 wks old so that probably has something to do with it.

BTW once it came in I had an oversupply problem for a while which is a little ironic I guess my body thought there was more that one baby with all of that nursing/ pumping :lostit:

I really really really don't want anything to do with bottles/supplemeting/formula this time as it really made me feel inadequate and like a bad mom last time.

I did no supplementing w/ either one.

I just wanted to say, even if your milk takes a week, the baby should be fine :) No need to supplement if you don't want to.

I probably should have said that my son had jaundice so I really needed to supplement with him as his numbers were dangerously high and he had lost more that 10% of his birthweight.

My milk came in at 5 days postpartum with #2 and 3 days postpartum with #3.

Well it came in probably on day 4? I don't remember but she was also jaundice and lost more than 10% of her birthweight and no one said to supplement. But I know it can be hard w/ your first. If it takes a while for your milk to come in w/ #2 don't feel like you have to supplement because as soon as your milk comes in then the weight and the jaundice will be fine.

With dd# it was 3 days pp with dd#2 it never came in and with dd#3 it was 4 days pp. With dd #3 I pumped from day 1 because she was in the NICU and didn't get to nurse until she was 6 days old.
