Good morning all!
We called the pedi. last evening and he suggested formula...we took her to visit a friend and midwife who said she was fine. She (the midwife friend) did weigh her though and she is now 6 pounds 3 ounces and she was born at 6 pounds 15 ounces. This is significantly more loss than the doc wanted to see, so that worries me (more that he will want to take drastic measures than anything else). He asked that I call when they open this morning and make an appointment for today to get a weight check and also to meet with the lactation consultant on staff there.
I called the ONE privately practicing IBCLC last night and she suggested I bring the baby to the hospital b/c it had been too long since her last diaper and she needed IV fluids. WHAT????There are other IBCLC's but she was the only one available to talk to on the 4th. I will try to find/call someone else today.
In better news:
we had a very wet and very poopy (still that mix of meconium and yellow poop) last night around midnight.
We had a wet diaper this morning around 3am
and we had a second poopy diaper this morning around 6
this is good, yes???????????????
I couldn't bring myself to give her more than a few CCs of the formula last night b/c I was pumping so much more myself...I was getting about 6 CCs at a time yesterday and now I"m getting 10-13, so my gut says to stick with this for a while and see what happens. I know the pedi. will want me to super-supliment when I get there...but my heart and soul feel so much better now. Thanks everyone!
