Visit to LC, what to expect
Since my 3 1/2 week old LO went back to going two days without any weight gain, and since he's back to pooping only every few days (although when he does it's normal in appearance, etc.) we're going to see a LC in my OB's office today. After so many bad experiences with medical professionals relating to nursing since his birth I'm really nervous. The LC in the hospital told me that by 30 hours postpartum I should be able to pump 1-2 ozs. in addition to every 2 hour feedings. What is a typical LC visit like? Also, she told me not to feed him at all for 2 hours prior to the visit. Is that typical? I'm so nervous, and I'm nervous I won't "perform" in her office re: let down and then she'll tell me I have to wean.
