Maybe I am too emotionally unstable to be dealing with this right now. Most people probably think that I am making a huge deal out of nothing, but this is a big deal to me. I have been trying to nurse Kai without supplementing formula now for 2 days. It is not going well at all. I have basically been nursing him non stop. Like every hour. Sometimes even more often than that...like every 20 minutes. I will nurse him. He will finish. I put him down. He fusses. I try and calm him down for a good 15 minutes till I realize that he just really is still hungry and wants to eat. So I nurse him again. I repeat this process ALL day long. I just feel like with how often he is nursing he shouldn't need the formula. I don't want to just shove a bottle in his face because he was used to that and thinks that he is still hungry or wants more. But on the other hand I don't want to starve him either. I feel so torn. The few times in the past two days that I have finally broken down and just given him a bottle (because I had just nursed him for the millionth time) he inhaled it. No hesitation...finished the whole thing. But I know I am producing something! So why is he so hungry?? I don't know what to do, but it is stressing me out.
