We took CJ in for his weight check yesterday. I was really nervous but I didn't need to be. He went from 7lbs. 11oz to 8lbs 9oz in five days so he gained more than a pound. The doctor was very pleased with that. I also had her check for thrush and he has no signs of it and a lot of the burning pain is gone so I don't think I have thrush. I actually think I have vasospasms. The pain is much more spasm like and is often triggered by the cold. I have an appt. Monday so we'll see what the doctor says.
I'm continuing to pump but it's so hard to get the amount needed to really boost my supply. Right now I'm at 7 sessions at 20 minutes but I'm going to try and push to get more in. As of now he's getting about 12-14 oz. of bm a day which isn't ideal but I figure any BM is better than none. My right nipple is pretty much healed (the left is almost healed) so I actually let him nurse from that side today. He did well and it didn't hurt until he fell asleep about five minutes in and lost his latch. He can stay awake for the bottle but put him on the boob and he's out like a light.
We got the CD with our hospital pics on them so I thought I would share a few:
Chris's co-workers had onesies made with the studio's logo and name on it and I took a pic of him in it. It came out really cute:
