I have always found this forum so supportive right from years in ttc to the lttc to the pregnancy sections. Ive never looked in here but I see a lot of familiar faces which is good. im hoping to be able to keep up the support, chat and advice. Today Rory is 5 days old and weve been at home since Fri. It all seems to be going ok and my hubby is off for the next 2 weeks to help. I am the works worse for worrying sometimes. I think Im really lucky as touch wood I seem to generally have a happy little boy. Its the whole feeding thing that is kind of getting me. I did post in Combi feeding but it doesnt seem so busy in there so was wondering if anyone has any advice in her. I am keen to breast feed and from birth and now have my milk through. I have and managed fine till Sat which was day 4 really. Iended up with a wee hungry boy that no matter how long I fed him he still wanted more. Also sore and cracked nipples. During the night I gave him a bottle. He took the bottle ok, perhaps a little fast and a bit windy. He then slept for 3 hours before he needed another feed through the night. Yesterdat morning my boobs were really full so I fed him on the boob again and did all day till last night I put him to a bottle again. He took that fine, lot of poo. This morning though hes slightly less easy to get to feed on my boob. He is but finding it more of a challenge Id say. My questions about this is if I feed him myself during the day and bottle/formula at night is this combi feeding? Will it be sustainable does anyone know? Also I expresed some of my milk with my electric pump yesterday and got maybe 80ml. Is this normal for day 4? I feel Im constantly doubting myself and having a bit of an inner argument. Do I just go with formula and express at night to keep my milk supply and give him it. Do I just go with formula? Am I confusing things and my son? My ideal solution is breast feed and express. So garbled but anyone have any suggestions?
