Evidently there are some questions I'm supposed to answer to introduce myself. I didn't see them on the user info page, but I copied them from some people who posted before me.
Place: Albany, CA (just north of Berkeley)
Kids/Babies: One girl, Kaitlin, two months old
Brief description of BFing experience: A bit rocky. She lost 9% of her body weight by the time she was three days old so they wanted me to suppliment her with formula "until my milk came in". We closely monitored her weight gain, and on exclusive breastfeeding she was only gaining 3 oz per week so we were back to supplimenting. Three ounces a day wasn't enough, so we moved up to 6 ounces given by bottle on the advice of my LC. She finally gained 6 ounces in a week so we decided that was the amount to stick with. The amount of formula she took each day slowly creeped up to 10, so I decided it was time to nip that in the bud and bought an SNS. We're now down to 5-6 ounces per day and she's doing great.
Why you joined bf_evangelists: I can always use some more support and another perspective, and I really like the philosophy in your user info.
Any questions for the group? I can't think of any right now, but rest assured, I will come when I have them.
