Hopefully I don't steal too much of Chelsea's Thunder.

I'm Kes, wife to Andy and mom to DS Luke and DD Lauren (born 4/14). Luke was formula fed because I didn't really produce milk to feed him with. He was born at nine pounds and dropped to seven pounds by the time I gave up breast feeding and just used formula. I was sick at the time, so I figured that's why I never started making milk. Plus he was big, so I assume I just couldn't meet his needs.

Then DD was born, and I was determined to breast feed. Low and behold, I still don't produce milk. I can nurse of demand, pump myself full of natural supplements, etc and I still don't make enough. -.- So DD gets what she can from the breast and the rest is formula. I'm probably going to stop the breast feeding soon. I only care about it because it's free and formula costs money, but I'm barely giving her any milk and it's not off-setting the cost enough for it to be worth all the stress.

If I eat one more bowl of oatmeal, I think I might explode.

Sorry to hear you had trouble breastfeeding. I had similar issues. I just was NOT making enough for her... when I would pump, I would barely get two ounces, where my sister in law would get like 16 oz. Made me sad... I got the flu though when she was about 6 weeks old.

I'm Jenny, mom to Kaylin - 4 months.
