Okay, so about my last post... Breasts VS. Formula.... I think my biggest issue here is that I have Flat nipples and I have to wear a nipple shield every time I feed my little sweet pea. Let me tell you WHAT A PAIN in the neck it is to remember to wear in the middle of the night. I really don't mind, but sometimes I misplace them and then I have to go all over the house looking for it. Yes, I have more than one.They are also pretty expensive for a little piece of rubber. They cost 8 dollars and that's all it is a little piece rubber that resembles a nipple (like a bottle) and it fits perfectly around your brown part of your nipple. It helps the baby latch on to you better. I guess that I will continue to use it because it is what works for Gabby and me. Does anyone else have this problem? It works so I will keep using them!!!
Oh and by the way last Friday I had an appointment to see the Doctor and Gabriella weighed 6 pounds and 2 ounces, yesterday I took her in and she now weighs 6 pounds, 15 ounces. She is almost 7 pounds. The doctor told me to keep up my good work with the breast feeding. I was like, I didn't think I was doing that great. But, I guess she is getting what she needs, so I will keep breast feeding and using the nipple shield because that is what works for us!
