Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

:aww:

you know, the average weight loss in the 1st week is 10 % - and Corey was more than this.

Im no good with all the figures etc lol, but all i can advise is to keep him on as much as you can - your supply is nowhere near established yet, so the more he is on, the more you will produce.

Sorry it isnt going as you hoped - but this is the most difficult time now - if you can get through it, it only gets easier! :aww:

:aww: mama
Keep him close at all the time, even if he is not feeding; you can carry him in sling all day and just let him nurse whenever he canand have hands free for other kids Wink
You are doing everything you can, only persistence and patience will do now!
I would pump also in between feedings and save what you get. Do you have LC or IBCLC close by? I'm not sure how it works in Canada; but if you are really cut short Paula, Carol and JEanine at KellyMom are Wink
I am SO PROUD of you Lindsay. :aww:
