I mean my bra cup...
Mason is not gaining weight. Jon keeps bringing up the possibility that I am producing skim milk, not fatty milk for her. So right now, every feeding I am nursing her, on both sides for about 20 minutes each, then supplementing with formula. Yesterday, and so far today it is about every hour or hour and a half that I do this. Basically I am feeding all day long... I am going crazy.
Even when I don't nurse her, she only drinks like 2 ounces from a bottle, so it makes me wonder if her stomach just isn't big enough yet... I am getting worried, but trying to stay calm and positive.
My dilemma now is whether or not I should just give up on nursing. I really don't want to, I love nursing my babies. I was so sad when I stopped with Cooper because I thought it was my last time, and here I have been given another sweet baby to nourish, and for some reason it's not working. Plus, formula ain't cheap.
What would you do? Have any of you ever heard of a mom producing skim milk? Is it even possible? What is the point of me having these enormous milk producers, if they aren't even doing there job right???
P.S. On a positive note, she is getting cuter and cuter every day. I adore this sweet girl!
