Transitioning DD from formula to breast

I had my appointment with the lactation consultant today and it went really well. DD immediately turned to my breast when I brought her near and kind of latched without our help!!

She said I have milk already and that she is confident that my supply will pick up quickly. She has 2 concerns tho: making sure I get enough rest to maintain a stable mental and emotional state while off the medication; and she suspects that DD has reflux. But she gave me a list of exercises to get DD to latch better and she has nursed 3 times this afternoon/evening so far. I dont know how much she is getting put of me but it feels good

Have a follow up appointment on Monday.
