I am feeling a bit victorious this evening. I am a mom of 2 girls, a 5 year old and a 6 week old. When my 6 week old was born, the doctor’s advised to supplement with formula. She had apparently lost 14% of her body weight from birth at only 3 days old. After I supplemented with formula, my baby stopped latching and wouldn’t breastfeed. I was heartbroken that I had to give her bottles only. That’s all she would take. I have been trying to get her to latch again. It has been a rough journey, but after 5 weeks of latching here and there, TODAY she strictly ate from the tap. No bottles!! Ugh I feel so great that I can give my baby the best.
