Dr. Visit

 Today Cy had to go back to see Dr. Cadle for a weight check. I snapped some photos while we were waiting, I mean he is one of three of the cutest babies ever! Cy was 8 pounds 7 ounces at birth and when we took him last week to the Dr. he was down to 7 pounds 11 ounces. My milk has finally come in, but as of today he had only gained one ounce back. This is a little frustrating to me I have to admit, I am also a little hormonal so it makes me really sad also. I wish that I could just nurse my children and it go smooth but for some reason my body fails me and them. I just do not produce enough milk for my kids to grow and we have to end up supplementing with formula. It makes me sad but I am willing to do whatever is best for the kids. As of now I am still nursing but after each nursing session I am offering him a bottle of formula to top off what he gets from me. We go back on Tuesday to see were he is weight wise and re evaluate what we need to do nurse/bottle wise. I am hoping that he is starting to gain weight and that I will be  able to keep nursing for a while but I know that I will be OK if we have to go to formula full time. It has seemed like this afternoon that he was full after nursing because he would barely touch the bottle, not sure if that was because he was full or because he was not use to a bottle. We will just have to see what happens.
