Skinny Baby Update
It has been one week since my last post and today I weighed Jack again to see what progress has been made. I am happy to report that he is now up to 13lbs 12.2 oz. That is a 9.2oz gain from his weight last Tuesday. While this is a great improvement, it has not come easy. I had a lactation consultant come out to our house last week to work with us (Jack and I) on all things nursing. $275 later an action plan was put in place. This plan consists of nursing and pumping A LOT! In fact I am pumping as I type this post. I am also taking a collection of herbal supplements (Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle) the side effect of which is the constant smell of maple syrup...strange but true! So with what feels like a non stop cycle of feeding and pumping with little sleep in between, I am exhauseted. I know there is light at the end of this tunnel and I hope we get there soon!
