LilMomma, going to visit your post . . .
Good for you!  While rule #1 is always "feed the baby," supplementing is a slippery slope!
I hear you-- my 2nd had issues with weight due to her weak suck.  I analyzed EVERYTHING because I had to.  It is very draining.  We got our situation fixed at 6 weeks, and you will get there, too.    You have the combination of this being your first and the nursing issue.  Double whammy!  I promise it will get easier, and at some point, you will have the "freedom" to relax about it.    Even though this is my 5th baby, I am always really careful about making sure they are...
Oh, gosh, I KNOW.  I continue to get people feeling "sorry" for me since I have 5 girls and only girls.  The cleaning woman at the hospital asked me what my other kids were (gender), and when I told her all girls, she said, "Well, at least they are healthy."   Now I just laugh when people say things like that, and I ask, "Why?"  That one question never fails.  Since I say it laughing, it doesn't sound mean, but it always puts them on the spot, and they always...

Here is my birth story.   Saturday: Went to my mom's evening Christmas party.  Stayed on my feet the whole time to help since sitting didn't feel better.  Got home and graded papers until midnight-- done with work for the quarter so I told the baby she could come now. Could not sleep.  Ate tiramisu and it left a really strong taste of rum in my mouth.  (Somehow, totally forgot about the alcohol in it!)  Worried about that.  No cramps or any sign of labor.  Finally...
Thank you for the recommendations.  I will see if our library has these or can get them for me!   wissa, I am open to good novels, too, so feel free to pass on titles for those!
