Re: 1day old LO ad already I need help!

I agree with everything that has been said here. Just keep your LO on the boob!

It's very hard to tell that they are getting anything in the first few days. I worried too. They are though! It's not much, because your milk hasn't come in yet. That's ok though, they really don't need much this early. And when your milk comes in, there won't be any question. It's usually pretty fierce.

This is a great article about just how tiny a newborn's stomach is: http://www.ameda.com/breast-feeding/...es-in%E2%80%9D

Also, because every nursing mom should know, kellymom.com is a wonderful resource of nursing information.

GL, mama!

Make sure he has a really good latch... my dd had a terrible latch so when we went to the ped at 5 days old she still wasn't getting any milk, turns out I had milk but it wouldn't let down. Now she gets more than enough milk.

Again thanks to all of you, we met with a lactation specialist again today and she showed me that I am producing. She showed me the proper way to had express and I squirted my DH accidentally! She also walked me thru the latching process again. My nipples are pretty sore and cracked so she thinks that was the issue not the production. I'm very excited and very happy to know I will be able to nurse.

That's what happened to me! Minus squirting dh, I got dd instead. I'm glad to know you are producing milk!
