i'm sorry you had a rough time of it {{hugs}}

A babies weight at birth doesnt have anything to do with your milk. (not bashing you, just whoever told you that..probably a clueless nurse). colustrum is enough to sustain even a 12 pounder at birth for the first few days. babies are so water logged at birth that that is all they need. Also, what a mother pumps is less than what the baby takes in. A baby is the best breast pump . I could only get about 1oz out when pumping and i was nursing a newborn and a toddler.

Next time get a good lactation consultant to help you with nursing and different latch techniques.

I didn't nurse my oldest because he was "too small" according to the nurse at the hospital. AND i was only getting an oz or so after pumping for 30-45 minutes and thought i didn't have enough milk.

OOh, I love them! I love them all! I thought we were the only ones to lay down when we nurse, but we do it all the time too! I'm gonna go find one of mine!

Re: Share your nursing pics!

Here is one with the twins but I don't have any with the other three. Never thought of it with them. I took this for WIC. It took me threee months to get these 2 to latch on after being in the NICU on bottles! They were about 3 months and a week in these pics. They are 6 months now.
