Nursing Challenges

Poor lil girl cant latch well, and often falls asleep at the breast. Its nearly impossible to breastfeed her without pumping a bottle! We worked through the day though.She ate nearly every 20 minutes for nealy 2 hours, then finally napped. And i pumped a good 3 oz while she slept (thank goodness for fenugreek!)

She still gets her sup bottles w/ neosure at daddy bottle feeds.. Sorta depressing i cant do it all on my own =/ Soon i suppose!

She has become very needy. Crying and needing to be held. I havent slept much since she was born, im hoping thing change soon! And to get off this darned bottle.
