Re: I could use some cheering...
A good side effect of this nurse-in has been that my postpartum bleeding has been non-existent today. (Sorry if that was tmi.) I also discovered my son seems to nurse best in sidelying. Only if he's not too sleepy to get latched on well, though. I can tell he is having more wet diapers, a little better poopy diapers, and more milk into him since he will sometimes spit up again, which he hadn't done for several days. I am pretty sure he is still going to need me to pump though. I don't know if he will get enough from nursing alone without that extra 1/2 oz -1oz which I pump and cup-feed. I wonder how long I will need to keep up with the pumping?
