Re: Hit or miss with 11 day old-ranting!-and no poo in 4-ish days

so she pooed yesterday (finally!) and pooed again today yaay! i took her to a IBCLC today to get her weighed and have my latch evaluated. she is 2 ounces away from her birth weight which at 2 weeks old is okay and i was not latching her on very well. i have very large nipples and i needed to be more aggressive with sandwiching them into her mouth. it just hurt like heck doing it the first couple of times because i didn't realize how sore one of my breasts really was. but she is okay. the LC said the baby was fine i just needed to be more cognizant of what i am doing. yaay! (again!)
