I have to confess, I’ve been nervous about this breastfeeding thing. I like knowing how much you’re eating, which is obviously not doable with breastfeeding, as my breasts do not have a visible gauge on them, telling me how much you’ve drank. The usual barometer (among others) is that a baby regain their birth weight in the first 10-14 days.
Considering you have jaundice and are a preemie, it’s taken you a bit longer to hit this milestone, which also had me privately second guessing myself.
Today you hit your birth weight. We are exclusively breastfeeding, and have been since day 2 of your life. We are succeeding.
