I had to share...
First of all - we are having our consultation with the lactation consultant on Saturday morning. I am so happy - hopefully we'll get a good latch going and that problem will be "nipped" in the bud.
Also - (knock on wood) - I'm not going to get too excited about this yet, but I think the yeast infection in my nipples is going away. They are looking much better over the past two days - nice & pink and little or no cracking. YAYYY!!!!! I'm still using the nystatin after each feeding though - just in case.
Lastly, we went to the pediatrician this AM for Ashelyn's 2 week appointment. They said that at 2 weeks they like to see the baby back to their birthweight (she was 7 lbs 5 oz at birth). Well, today she weighs 8 pounds!!! I was worried also about milk supply b/c with my first daughter we had problems at the end of our short nursing time (1/2 oz pumped after 20 minutes when I had gone back to work - it would take all day of pumping to get one 4 oz bottle for her). This time I have been a little worried, but the Dr says no need to be concerned since Ashelyn has gained so much weight!!
I just wanted to share - I am so happy that things seem to be getting better for us. I had wanted so badly to have a great breastfeeding experience this time around and now I am feeling positive that it might just happen!!
