My son is now almost 6 weeks old. I was able to nurse all of the first 4 days. He was 7 lbs. 5 oz. when he was born, but 3 days later when they discharged us, he was down to 6 lbs. 4 oz. Our first night home, he screamed the entire night. The next day we had to go back for another weight check, and they told us we had to supplement with formula. Later we discovered that the poor thing screamed the first night because he was hungry! He wasn't getting enough from me. By 3 weeks, my milk still hadn't really come in, so I gave up on breastfeeding. No one can tell me why my milk didn't come in. Not the lactation nurse, not the pediatrician, not my obgyn, no one. I haven't had any kind of breast surgery or anything. Has this happened to anyone else? I've always wanted to breast feed, and it just about devastated me that I couldn't.
