I put down the pump, bottle and fortifier and started nursing my baby. She eats what she wants and I can't force her to eat any more. I'm sure it will all work out! Hugs and keep us updated!
Thanks for sharing that!

The LC is loaning me her scale for just $5 a day. I'm so greatful!

God bless!

That's an awesome deal! We have a scale, but it's not that accurate. Although I have been known to weigh dd more than I should

I'm back to BFing. I rented a scale from a wonderful LC, and I'll spend Saturday and Sunday weighing Levi before and after feedings. So everyone involved will be happy.. Levi happy, pediatrician happy, my breats happy. LOL

I REALLY REALLY appreciate the offer, and had i not gotten this scale I would have taken you up on it!!!! Thank you for your kindness.

God bless!

Re: I need a 1 time milk donor in DFW, TX

FWIW, the pediatrician can tell you what s/he wants you to do all day long, but in the end, you're the mama and you don't have to do it. I mean, perhaps you'd want to listen to a ped who said "Your kid is very ill, give him this medication to make him less ill." But in a case like this, I think that getting a second opinion, talking to a lactation consultant, and questioning are the way to go (as you are doing). Good luck!!!!

I could never pump more than 2-3 oz either. My guess is I did not pump much adn that's prob what he ate at a sitting?

Re: I need a 1 time milk donor in DFW, TX

If anyone has not seen my thread "Frustrated and worried" and it's update.

It's a tongue tie. Either it was not clipped enough when he was 5 days old, or the frenulum grew back, which I was told can happen occasionally with small babies. WE have an apointment to have it re-evaluated and clipped. The ENT I'm using THIS time is recomended highly by my LC and her partner. He is supposedly VERY familiar with tongue ties, including posterior tongue ties, and how they affect BFing.

So, fingers crossed.

In the meantime, the LC showed me a more effective nursing position to help him get better expression from the breasts. IT was IMMEDIATELY effective. We got 2.2 oz in a 10 minute session, vs the 1.5 oz he was getting in a 30 minute session before. So, hopefully this IS the isue, and he'll be able to adjust quickly after having the tongue tie clipped.

So, the LCs advice is to continue to breast feed, and pump, and suppliment my BFing with whatever I pumped that day. So if I get 6oz, then I just break it up and offer 2oz at a time after three nursing sessions (one of them being the before bed session).

God bless!
