I NIPed today!
Ok, not very well, but... We were at the bookstore in teh mall, and I figured I should go ahead and feed him while my older DS was playing and we planned to be there for a few minutes anyway. He was starting to rouse anyway. So I tucked him in the Maya wrap, and finagled until he was at the breast. The left side wasn't a problem cuz of the way the Maya fits, but the right side was hopeless. I ended up taking the sling off, and just holding him, trying to tug my tee down to cover my boob.
I got pretty good at it with DS1, so I hope I'll learn eventually. It'll help when DS can hold his head, and help more with the latching.
I bought some new nursing bras tonight too. I hope they're the right size. I was reading a thread in TAO about bra fit, and the OP was complaining about when the front of the bra cups don't lay flat on chest, and so I was studying this link someone posted about getting teh best fit. But both DS's and DH were getting restless, and so I THINK I got the best size, but I noticed when I tried them on at home again that the part between the cups doesn't rest on my chest no matter how much I adjust. So I dunno.
Any source for inexpensive nursing tanks/camis?
Also, I caught 2 poops today.
: I can't tell though if they seem a it runny. Both times there was SOME pee in teh potty as well, but the poop seemed so soupy. He seems healthy otherwise. I'm trying to rectify my nipple pain, so I've been treating with Gentian Violet in case it's thrush; would that cause watery poops? Or maybe they're always that wet, but I don't know cuz the diaper absorbs the liquid part?
Oh, and before you congratulate me too much, it was a total fluke that I caught those poops. The first time, I was chaning him, noticed he'd started to poop, and plopped him on the little potty just in time to finish. The second time I'd put him on the potty thinking he needed to pee [which he did as well], and I think we were both a bit surprised when he squirted poop into the potty! [it's somewhat explosive when he poops].
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
