We had our well check this morning. Shepherd hasn't gained any weight. He didn't lose any either. The nurse lactation consultant had me stay and give him a feeding. After I was done they weighed him and he gained an ounce. So we have a new plan for feeding him. Instead of switching sides during a feeding I will feed only on one side for 40 minutes. Then switch sides on the next feeding. 4 times a day I will pump after his feeding for 10 minutes on each side. 1 time a day I will pump for 30 minutes to and hour. This will help my supply to increase so Shepherd can gain weight.
He is absolutely perfect in every other way. He is longer so his newborn clothes don't fit him anymore. The nurse remarked at how strong he is and that he will be an early roller. We had that feeling. She mentioned that is looks to her that he was born a couple weeks early. Maybe my dates were off. That is probably why he is such a sleepy baby. So whenever I nurse him I need a wet clothe to wipe his head with to help him wake up and eat.
His circumcision is perfect.
We have to go back on Friday to check his weight. I know we'll have the hang of it by then.
We love this little guy so much! =)
