How are you feeding your baby (breastfeeding/formula/pumping)? Finally EBF
Is it what you had planned during pregnancy? yes
Are you ok with how things are going? Yes. It was a little hard getting started, but she's finally nursing like a champ!
Any surprises? Yes, I didn't expect the low blood sugar issues at birth and needing to give her formula.

Is it what you had planned during pregnancy? Yep!
Are you ok with how things are going? Yep!
Any surprises? I BFd for a few days but planned a bit longer as I did with my boys. I was surprised that I just didn't want to BF. BF has always been a struggle for me and I always put so much guilt and pressure on myself. This time around I didn't and I am so much happier this time around.

Any surprises? The biggest surprise was how good he was at BF from the beginning. Of all 7 babies he latched correctly from the get go and I hardly had any nipple pain even in the beginning.

How are you feeding your baby (breastfeeding/formula/pumping)? combo of bf and bottles of expressed milk

Is it what you had planned during pregnancy? I didn't plan on regularly giving him expressed bottles, but hey, no biggie, it's working for us.

Are you ok with how things are going? yes, though I'm not in love with bf like I hoped I'd be.

Any surprises? How difficult it was in the beginning. I discovered that just because it's natural doesn't mean it comes naturally.

Any surprises? I expected to have more nipple problems. But I only had a little soreness in the beginning, and just some continuing dryness. Thankfully no cracking or bleeding.

How are you feeding your baby (breastfeeding/formula/pumping)? Breastfeeding & pumping stores of milk for later
Is it what you had planned during pregnancy? Oh yes, always have
Are you ok with how things are going? Yes actually...going well
Any surprises? She is a vaccuum and can really make me sore sometimes. Also, I started on the bottle at 3 weeks and she goes back and forth so easily. I was really gunshy about that after Pascale but no issues at all

Are you ok with how things are going? Amazed! I thought it would be harder or take more time for us to hit a grove. By a week, my nips stopped being sore & he was a champ!
Any surprises? that I have no desire to pump.
