I delivered my baby boy at 37 weeks via Csection and he weighed 4.13 He dropped to 4.8 and as this past Monday he is up to 5lbs!!!!! I have been pumping and feeding him with a bottle and it has taken its toll on me mentally, physically and emotionally!!!!! I saw a LC about a week and a half ago and she told me that he was just to little to nurse at this time and suggested I come back in a couple weeks when he has gained some weight and a little older! She sent me home with a SNS, I have fumbled with that thing and ended up getting so frustrated with it that I threw it across the room!!! I am going back to see her today because I feel like he is ready to learn!!! He is more alert now and most of all I'm ready to stop pumping and feeding and just want to breast feed already!!! When I offer him, he is more than ready to take my boob, its just that he either doesnt latch on deep enough and seems to spit it out after a couple of sucks or he will latch on correctly sometimes and suckles and has a couple swallows, then jerks his head back and screams. We are also dealing with thrush. Im hoping today we can make progress toward EBF, so that him and I both can be happy!!!!! Any suggestions?!?!?!
