Well from before you can tell this breastfeeding thing has been a challenge but I have to report that we've gone 2 whole days without a bottle. She's doing just fine!!! I'm so excited. She still takes a while to finish but I'd rather take her time with me then with a bottle!!
Its so gratifying. I love being able to feed her like nature intended. And She is gaining weight so I know she's getting enough.
I've even well almost got it down so well that I can do it in public without making a scene. We'll try for sure at church to see if I can get it down with the other 8 ladies all feeding their kids right after sacrament. Its like a zoo in there. 4 soft chairs and 8 ladies all needing to feed their kids all at the same time. And its just going to get worse as we have 2 more ladies due at the end of the month and like 4 more throughout the summer. I think they'll have to create another room!
Thanks to Rachel for her words of encouragement. It is the greatest thing like you said! I'm glad I had the patience and the support to keep going when I thought I couldn't. Its great to have friends that will help you out when in need.
Thanks to everyone that had a word of advice. I tried almost everything that was suggested.
Motherhood is turning out to be the best challenge I've ever had! I love it. and I found out that Matt is the best at putting Kathryn to sleep at night. After I feed her Matt is now in charge of helping her fall asleep. I love it. I get such good sleep when I know Matt has taken care of her! He is my hero!
