Juliana prefers her daddy and the bottle
She has been quite the eater, and can latch fine, but constantly lets go and sputters, gags, spits up, etc. I'm getting EXTREMELY low on sleep so last night Daddy stayed up and gave her a bottle so I could get more than 2 hours at a time. I didn't expect for it to work but she took it right away, sucked down 2 oz, and didn't spit nearly as much of it up. I believe it is because my flow is way to much for her to regulate. Thats why I had to start pumping in the first place, so my boobs didn't explode :D. Also, I'm trying to get ahead just in-case my kidney issues land me in the hospital again.

I'm glad she is taking the bottle, but I hope she doesn't give up on me completely. I really don't want to end up pumping all of the time!

Re: Juliana prefers her daddy and the bottle
I'm so glad that you got some sleep! And, if she's taking the bottle from Daddy, that's OK. If you end up in the hospital, at least that's an option. (But, YOU KNOW I DON"T WANT YOU TO END UP THERE)
I hope you don't end up pumping all of the time. Hopefully Juliana will continue to get the hang of it and things will start going smoothly! Here's hoping for another good night for all of you :)

I'm sorry the bf isn't going exactly as you planned. With a little more time she will get more used to your flow, I'm sure. At least you know the bottle is an option if/when it is needed. I'm sending you tons of NO MORE HOSPITAL vibes!!!

For something so natural, breastfeeding is so darn hard! I am glad you got some much needed sleep. Hopefully the breastfeeding goes better soon and hopefully you don't end up in the hospital again. How have you been feeling?
