arjake This room was filled with so many happy emotions this time around and it was so incredibly different than last time. When Silas was born, Dr. H delivered his devastating diagnosis and I remember sobbing to him. He told me he never understood why bad things happen to good people. I will never forget that. Fast forward three years and we meet again, but this time he's only delivering good news and talking with a certain three year old who is defying the odds!! #smalldude #redemption #newbabe 1d

arjake My mom's a hot mess 🙄!! Thanks for all support you all showed on my last #breastfeeding post. It seems like we all have very different yet similar journeys! I seriously have the best friends and family who have encouraged me through the tears and lonely nights these past couple of hard days (oh, and hubby too ️). I'm going to give it a bit more time and am looking forward to discussing my issues and options with my lactation consultant. I do know I don't want this stress putting a dark cloud over this precious time I have with him -- time I didn't get with Silas due to him being in the NICU for his first 3 months of life. I just wanted this to be so EASY ! Obviously, by the look of this picture this kid isn't hurting for calories!! #thestruggleisreal #fedisbest #isbreastreallybest #thankful #breastfeedingwoes #chubbybabesarethebest 5d

arjake Why am I up and my baby is sleeping 😑?!? I'm seriously struggling over here with this whole breastfeeding thing. It's HARD! I tried initially with Silas (like the first week) and had all the help you can imagine - lactation, OT and SLP. Due to all his complications, it just didn't work out and I ended up pumping for 1.5 months but decided to quit after only getting about 2-3 oz. per day. My stress level was insane with him being in the NICU and I just wasn't making anything despite my efforts. Fast forward to this pregnancy, I was for sure that this time it was going to be better...and it is, kinda. Jett knows what he's doing but I don't! My milk was slow to come in and so we supplemented at the hospital since he was losing weight. So I was BFing, pumping right after in hopes that it would help my milk come in, and then feeding him a bit of formula in the bottle. Then we came home and the first night was a disaster! I realized I can't keep up with all that and seriously wanted to throw in the towel!! I had a good pep talk from a lactation consultant that I truly liked yesterday and she said stop pumping, you really don't need to supplement, you have a healthy 8.5lb baby - PUT HIM TO THE BOOB ! So then, I felt better...until tonight. I caved and supplemented twice because he was crying and rooting and I thought he was starving and I was exhausted . Ugh, the guilt. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH GUILT AND PRESSURE?! This is all so new to me and you get so many different opinions from everyone you talk to! Do this, do that, you shouldn't be doing this, etc. So here I sit, baby sleeping and me wide awake pumping because my boobs hurt and I'm freaked about losing my milk supply one day after it finally seemed to have come in a bit . I'm not giving in just yet but that 🍼 is mighty tempting!!! #breastfeeding #isbreastreallybest #thestruggleisreal #whyamiawake 7d
  •   lauralou852 Some women just don't respond well to the pump (me!) either, so don't let yourself feel defeated if you're not getting much! I'm going to tag you in my post from the last night I nursed Anni to sleep - I reread it a few days ago and all the feelings of our journey came rushing back. It's so hard, but so worth it if you can stick it out through this hard first few weeks (months in my case ) You're doing great! 5d
  •   smotz88 You are the mom and a hero no matter what you end up doing. Mommy hero's breastfeed and mommy hero's bottle feed. Go easy on yourself, you just grew a human and took care of your family too! Breast or bottle, You'll still get to enjoy those newborn snuggles. Congrats!! 5d
  •   carynhanmer You are doing a great job. Breastfeeding is all consuming in the beginning. Whatever decision you make is ok! @lactationlink really helped me. Her videos & daily IG posts are great! 3d
  •   mycolonialremodel Ugh. Ezekiel was this way! So hard to get him latched and I was always near bleeding! It took him 2 months at least for the both of us to find a technique and position that worked best 3d
