Apparently, that is what I have. A breastfeeding baby. At least according to the lactation consultant. She said he was breastfeeding like a pro. When she first was checking him out, she said he had a bit of a tongue tie, so it might make it harder, but once she tried to latch him on, he was off and running. So now I just have to figure out how to get him to latch on like she did. She did have some good advice, so hopefully it will be easier.
The even better news is that it appears that my body is producing at least some breast milk. She kept weighing him during our visit and he gained more weight than he was taking in from formula. I was super excited to hear that. At least my body can do something right! Now we just have to figure out the latching issue so he won't make my nipples so sore.
Quiet house, happy kids…
