hi gals- i haven't had a chance to read up for a few days- hope everyone is well.
Apologies for not catching up- but this week really took the wind out of my sails.
so personals to come...
Pulman hadn't been gaining weight, so doc appt was tuesday for a weight check- turns out- he'd not gained the weight we'd thought even last month- they weighed him on the wrong scale- so tuesday- he was only 6lbs 11 oz!!!!!!! I was sad, pissed off, worried and feeling like a bad mother - but doc said he was doing ok- just needed to start getting at least 8 more oz into him per day- he was not latching on correctly ALL THIS TIME!!!!!!!!!!
so off to a lactation consultant who was sort of a nazi- I left licking my wounds and still feeling bad that I didn't notice sooner - but we're getting there- i'm pumping so we can see how much he's getting and we've introduced some formula a couple times a day as I was really getting overwhelmed -
we've started weighing him on our kitchen digital scale each morning and he's gained 2 oz since yesterday - so I don't know what that makes him at the doc's office, but I know for sure he's getting food
AHHHHHHHH_ it's been a tough week- jsut glad I didn't wait until his next appt on the 29th to find out something was wrong
many good thoughts to you all- more from me later
