Oh mamas!I'm exhausted too!!!!!Lol soo funny we were all complaining about pregnancy insomnia but that had nothing on this.My moan is related to breastfeeding, everyday is the day I'm going to give it up.Kingsley has perfected his latch but he will not stay on the breast.If I wake him up or catch him as he is waking up he will for about 5 minutes but if he loses his latch he won't come back on and he def won't switch breasts after finished with one which means he is still hungry and looking for a bottle.I pump but pumping every two hours is so unrealistic for me with trying to sleep, making bottles, cleaning bottles, cooking dinner, or getting real life activities done.Pumping makes my nipples tender and I only imagine myself walking around with swollen nipples for 6 more months..ewww.Also I only pump 1-3 oz at a setting now which is not nearly enough for my hungry man.He eats 4-5 oz every 3-4 hours.I also have started adding a very very little amount of cereal in his milk at the suggestion of a friend b/c he was wanting bottles constantly every hour almost and so hungry when he woke up that it was breaking my heart, now he is much happier and can sleep a little longer.So I'm still going back and forth on if it's worth it for me to still breastfeed. Don't know how long I'll be on board with it- but he is napping now so I will go pump. I'd say he gets about 6-8oz breast milk 18oz formula. Reverse supplementing at its finest.
