I finally made it!
 
Apparently, 4th time's the charm. :mrgreen:

I never made it past the first weeks with my first three babies. I tried so hard. Through painful bloody nipples, low supply, pumping, supplements, thrush, mastitis, food allergies, tongue tie, and none of my babies regained their birth weights without formula. I had SO much guilt over quitting afterward, but now looking back I know I just didn't get the support I needed. I gave it all I had to give, and that was all I could do. But when I got pregnant with this last baby, I made it my mission. I would breastfeed this baby, dammit!

We had a rough start, and battled almost all of those things again, but with a super supportive midwife we made it! I apparently make skim milk, because DS is 70th% for height and only 5th% for weight despite nursing on demand all day and night, but he steadily gains 8 oz every ten days. He's happy, healthy, hitting milestones early, and has never had a drop of formula.
We just passed our 3-month milestone-- and we'll hit many more to come! :goodvibes:

That's awesome!! I had the same problems with both ds. My 11 week old is lactose intolerant and i didn't make nearly enough for him anyway plus he had bad acid reflex so he is on special formula :( i am praying with my next baby i will be able to make it past 5 weeks
