Okay well. we did GREAT! Nursing today. We made it until about noon without any supplements! I figured out what's going on. If I give him my left breast he will take it and nurse great. but after a few feedings he wants more then he can get. I got him to nurse my right once while we were gone. all without fighting me !
but then later he would NOT take my Right. I think it's just hard to latch because of the capsular contration (implants). so i just expressed it.
he woke 2 times last night and nursed my left. in the morning he nursed my left again. then i expressed my right. so he seems to be able to get most feedings from just my left side though!
then tonight he was fine, i nursed him left until he started pulling off screaming then gave him my right. he took it for a minute and started screaming. Maybe he doesn't like laying on that side?? so finally after about an hour of going back and forth, checking his gums and all he drank a whole bottle again. and is now asleep so i expressed
so i think for now i am going to have to keep nursing the left and expressing the right. and what i get from the right can be what he gets in a bottle during the day if he needs anything.
today i really could tell a difference. because my right boob was HUGE after he finished eating on the left LOL! so funny but i'm glad he is nursing! only 2 supplements a day and i am sure it will be less soon!
I wanted to say the support here has been amazing and I am very happy to have found this wonderful group of girls!
