Henry had his 2 week check up yesterday. He weighed 7lbs 10oz! He weighed 6lbs 7oz at birth, so a little over a pound. I asked about the crying fits and the pedi just said "oh thats normal." But she said if it got out of control to try gripe water. Ha normal! We tried the gripe water...didn't seem to do anything.
On a good note, I did some drastic changes in my nursing habits. My left nipple is so cracked there is a quarter inch crater looking hole in it. So I busted out my nip shield and let me tell you that thing is heavenly. Also he has been feeding about 16x during the day and sleeping thru the night, which was causing engorgement issues and clogged ducts. So I tried setting an alarm and waking him to feed and he just wont have it. I change his dipe, tickle his toes, blow on his face but he remains passed out. If I do get him latched..its a lazy one. So I decided to do a full pump session last night and let him sleep. My boobs haven't felt that good in a long time. The only thing that scares me is him waking up for a feeding right after I pump. I haven't introduced a bottle yet, so this could be a problem.
