She's gorgeous! Congrats!

And yeah like jenv said, nursing is HARD. We had to supplement Falon as well - if you have problems (or even if you don't but you just want reassurance) go see a lactation consultant. I saw an ILBLC one and she was awesome. The hospital ones were kind of meh.

Her stomach probably isn't big enough for two oz yet. I think that article says its like 5ml or something. And certified lactation consultants are great. I went on herbs to increase my supply in the beginning (i think it was week two or three) because rissa was a slow gainer. She didn't get back to birth weight until 3 weeks but she was just fine!

Stick with it mama. We had so many strikes against us but we ended up having no trouble. Like the girls said, don't be afraid to ask for help. And kellymom.com has been amazing. I have over supply issues and it has helped so much!

When she smiles, it melts my heart:

Congrats MM! She's adorable!

And Allison I live the photos - I think she's one of the only babies I've actually seen an awake picture of for a newborn shoot!

Haha that's because she screamed through the whole four hour shoot and would not sleep no matter what we tried! The ones of her sleeping were all taken within about a minute.
