awwww poor mama! I'm so lucky to have Jo breastfeeding because I had soo many problems with's praying it passes soon!


Oh, Angi - yes, she's going through a growth spurt. They go through one at three weeks, six weeks and then either 3 or 4 months (all of my girls were 4 months). Give her a couple of days and your body will catch up to her demand. And definitely, nurse laying down! OMG, that made such a difference with each of my girls. is a GREAT resource for breastfeeding. And if you ever have to take any meds while you're nursing her, give me a shout. They tell you to stop BFing with almost everything but you rarely actually *have* to.

I.LOVE.THAT.PICTURE! OMG, that is THE sweetest thing, ever!!! :)

If she keeps up with fussy, evaluate your diet. Dairy is a big culprit in fussiness. Citrus, tomatoes, garlic, and caffeine can be as well. (and I never crave chocolate as much as I do when I'm nursing a newborn). Oh and carbonation - totally weird, but a Caffeine Free Diet Coke could send my kids over the edge just as much as a slice of cheese. Not pretty!

Keep at it! You can do it!!!


Wow I finally get to comment! I've wanted to comment several times but things weren't working for some reason...

Anywho! I definitely feel your pain with breastfeeding. My daughter would not bf. At all. I pumped for 6 months, then gave her frozen breast milk and formula for the next 6.

My son was an avid nurser from the start. And he nursed every hour...hour and a half...sometimes every half hour. He was 20 lbs at 4 months.

It was hard, but not as hard as pumping.

He nursed until he was 14 months old.

Whatever works for you and your family is the best method of feeding your beautiful little girl.

But don't give up too soon. I kick myself for giving up too quickly with my daughter.


I also love the photo, btw. I wish I had a photo of myself nursing my son.
