So today Bram had his 2 week follow up appointment - he's only gained 4 oz in the past week. Dr isn't happy and wants him back on Friday for another weight check and wants to see him up at least 3-4 oz. Um.. in 2 days?? :dontknow: Is that possible??
I did get a chance to work with one of the office lactation specialists for over an hour and I think she gave me some really good tips on getting my milk to come down more. Basically right now Mr. B is exerting too many calories getting the milk to come down and by the time "let down" occurs, he's too tired to eat. She sent me home with a starter "nutrition kit" from Enfamil but she said we could use the BM I have stored in the freezer if we wanted to.
It's killing me to not do 100% breast but he just isn't strong enough right now. She said once he's back up to birth weight, she thinks he may be able to go 100% breast without syringe supplement. Poor little dude.
His billy count was down to 9.something - VERY happy with that! :clappy:
The crap part of my day was when I had to go into the work office to have some insurance papers sent off and my boss said "Let's see the little rat. "
My son is NOT a rat. :cry: I hate that man.. I really, really don't like him.
