Quoting _The Rainmaker_:" I'm EBF my almost 3 week old, and starting last night she's been eating every 1 -1 1/2 hrs! I know I'm ... [snip!] ... till she gets hungry again. I don't mind it during the day, but last night was brutal. Any thing I should be doing different?"

COOOOMPLETELY normal :)



my LO seemed to be constantly on my b**bs, especially at the growth spurt stages. (i forgot what they are).



but trust me, it does get way easier. growth spurts only last a couple of days. learn to nurse laying down. i've been doing that since LO was born and now at 5 months, she's able to find the breast on her own while i'm still sleeping beside her :)

I BF my youngest for the first 2 months and he is not FF and I regret it. I wanted to BF him till he turned 1. I didnt have no support beside my husband but I was always away with my oldest at his therapy appointment and with it cold when he was born didnt want to take him out in the cold weather. But that does sound like a growth spurt to me. I want to wish you the best of luck and if you need any support come on here and I know there are a lot of mommas here that will give it to you. Take that can of formula back if you have to or give it to someone you know that needs it just so your not tempted to use it. :) Good luck momma

The hospital gave me a can of formula in a gift bag that said thank you for choosing to breastfeed. I ended up throwing it out. It did temp me once and we tried but DD wouldn't take it she got a drop of it in her mouth and instantly started screaming lol.
