His little nose makes me want to die of happiness!!

 

I'm so very sorry to hear about the breastfeeding issues mama greensad.gif  Did you get the tongue tie clipped?

 

I think for me, it took about 6-8 weeks before breastfeeding became something "normal" and not just a miserable, wretched experience.  Those I know with tongue tie babies have had it so much worse.  Big hugs to you mama, you are strong strong strong, and can overcome this!

He is breathtaking!! I had a horrible time nursing my first baby...I can honestly say it was the worst time of my parenting "career". Please be gentle with yourself, you're doing the very best you can, make sure you remind yourself of that and don't let anybody else make you feel differently. Congratulations x's 100!

Oh my, he is just perfect. I'm so sorry you are struggling with breastfeeding. It is so hard sometimes. Reglan was awful for me (had a seizure on it) - have you tried Fenugreek or any of the other galactogogues? Thinking of you!

What an adorable little guy! Beautiful. 

 

I'm sorry to hear about the breastfeeding issues. I had some with my first baby and had never known anything to be so frustrating. I'm hoping you make it through in the way that makes you happy. And as soon as possible. Good job, Mama, for your hard work so far! Your little one is perfect and this will pass and you'll get into a groove one way or another and the frustration will pass. Hug that baby boy for us (seriously, such a cutie!).

Aww, he is so cute!!  Did I miss his name somewhere in this thread!?  He is so, so handsome!!

 

I too am sorry for all the breastfeeding troubles.  Please, go easy on yourself.  You are doing the absolute best you can for your son and I know the feeling of just wanting to give up!  But I also know you won't.  Keep talking to professionals, keep pumping, keep trying to get that good deep latch.  You are an amazing, AMAZING mama and your son knows it!  Take time to just breathe once in awhile and realize what you have created.  hug2.gif  (And don't forget the BF'ing forum -- wonderful ladies with lots of wonderful HELPFUL advice, especially regarding that tongue tie!).

He is just beautiful!!!  I'm sorry you're having trouble with breastfeeding!  I hope things get better.  Just keep working at it and I'm sure you'll both get the hang of it.  Thanks so much for sharing some pics!

Maurine - Just popping in to say Congrats!!!  He is beautiful. I hope the breastfeeding gets easier.  All of my friends have said if you eat Oatmeal it will help to bring your milk in really fast.  Maybe you already know that one.  Take care!!!
