Thursday B went back to our family doctor. She, sadly, did not gain an ounce.
Apparently she doesn’t nurse long enough. And I don’t nurse properly. It comes down to being told one thing and then told another. I have been nursing from one breast only at each feeding as I was told before B was born. Now, I was to nurse her on both sides, pump, drink and drink some more. Acquiring to the doctor and nurse. Must make my boobs blow up become engorged.
After doing this for a couple days, it didn’t seems to be doing anything expect making me run to the bathroom a lot more than I have time for. I found The Leaky Boob on Facebook, thanks to a follower, and they gave some great advice.
I am now pumping, nursing, drinking, and eating oatmeal. I can’t wait till I can go to town tomorrow to get brewers yeast to make some milk cookies to help too.
My baby is happy, hitting milestones so I am not too worried. But I do hope that she starts growing a bit now.
Oh, and have you ever tried to get a baby (girl) to pee in a U-Bag? Talk about pee going every where but where you want it!
