i cried! she only did for maybe 30 seconds last night and a minute this AM, but she never has before and it was so amazing. she didn't get any milk, or if she did it was a very small amount because i couldn't pick up on any swallows. she has only screamed in the past so this was quite a shock! even if she never gets any milk i'm glad she has nursed so that i can at least experience it, and i'm sure it will help my supply if she keeps it up. maybe one day her suck will get better and my supply will get better so we can actually nurse regularly!

Awe, that is awesome. Your post made me want to cry for you! I hope it gets easier and better and starts to work for you. I don't really know your story, but you sound determined!

it is along story! she was hospitalized for a month because she wasn't breathing at birth, and she has a weak suck. i had complications as well and was unable to pump for a few days. my supply is VERY low and i have been pumping puny amounts (.5-1oz every 3 hours) for about 6 weeks now, she will be 7 weeks on Wednesday. i was devastated to have to not be able to nurse, and to not have enough milk for her, especially cause she was so sick, was really hard. i keep pumping because i figure some is better than none, and every time i think of quitting i get so depressed i can't. i am depressed to pump so little, i am depressed to quit pumping! but i feel lots better now, i know it is worth it, for us anyway. she just nursed again for like 10 minutes, and i even heard a few swallows! now the battle will be if she is getting too tired nursing to finish her bottle. she didn't eat very well after she nursed and i think this is why. we'll talk to our pedi about it, he is very bf supportive. i was so excited she was on for so long, i had dh grab a picture.
