Hi all this is Rachael! yeah I know I really exist.
So we decided to just do bottles for now. We went to the Neo appointment today (Amber will post about this later) Jimmie has fallen off his growth curve. The breastfeeding is very stressful and hard at the moment. So I decided that it will help both me and Jimmie to take a break. He had been talking the bottle with much less fuss and screaming (yeah he actually is not the little angel you might think :) I will still be pumping and hope to breastfeed at a later date.
This decision has come with tears and disappointment. We have to do what's best for Jimmie. Anybody that has had this kind of issue please let me know how you dealt with it. email firstname.lastname@example.org
I do realize that some baby's just decided to not eat very well for a time, Jimmie however does not have that luxury, he has to gain weight well.
When I am having a hard time it really uplifts me to know how many people are praying for us thank you and don't quit. We still have a long road.
