I don't know why breastfeeding is always so hard for me. we go tomorrow for another way to check and if her weight is not climbing I don't know what is next for us.
I am having very similar issues. Right there with you. Crying a lot about it and spending quite literally my whole day with at least one boob out while Lena still doesn't eat enough. So frustrating. I went to an LC today who showed me how to supplement using my own pumped milk in these syringe contraptions. I don't know if that would help you, but worth a shot. We also have a weight check tomorrow. I hope we both get good news! Hugs and hang in there! You're so not alone in this!
