Were you just curious and dropped by to see what the board was like?

Saying hi! Baby is only 11 days old so I am still trying to figure out what I am doing. We started supplementing in the hospital because of jaundice and have continued because she is a marathon nurser and I like an occasional break, and her daddy really likes to feed her. Right now she's getting about 3oz of formula over the course of a day.

I'm lurking to see what other people are doing and probably to give myself reassurance that what we're doing is okay. I have some guilt for supplementing for purely selfish reasons. It was one thing when I was worried about her health but right now it really is just nice to hand her to her daddy for a bit.

Welcome to the board! I'm glad you joined us!

First of all, it's not selfish at all - you need a break from the constant nursing every now and then and if you can't pump then formula gives you a chance to have a break while letting your LO's daddy take a turn feeding as well. It sounds like you are doing a great job of balancing things!

I hope you will stick around and post with us
