Well, here's the story. Last night, my 8 week old sweetie pie slept almost FIVE hours straight through. I havent been setting an alarm for weeks now because I've just grown accustomed to him waking me anywhere between 2-4 ish hours and we were good with that. Well, seems great and all, except I feel very 'inflamed' in my rest breast- I've been compressing all day, massaging and trying to get him to nurse frequently. Still sore.... but as the story progresses,It just so happened he had his 2 months shots today, and ofcourse we both survived it with tears anyway. I immediately nursed him afterwards in the dr office, and he went to sleep. I have only really been able to nurse him a couple of short minute sessions, really trying to for his benefit and mine, but he is very sleepy and will not wake. its been 2 1/2 hours. Wondering if it s the shots or tylenol making him sleepy? Keep trying to wake to nurse? Maybe pump a small amount of sake of comfort? Scared about mastitis. I try to hand express and I get a little but not really much.
THanks for the help!
