Tummy time - my older son HATED it and we never did it. I read somewhere that wearing the baby is strengthening the same muscles as tummy time so for those of us that wear the babies, tummy time isn't really necessary. My older son certainly showed no developmental problems - crawling at 6 months, walking at 10 months. I haven't even thought about trying it with Eli yet, but he does spend hours a day being worn.
Today we had a consult with a lactation consultant because no matter what I tried, I couldn't get his latch perfect and my poor nipples are never going to heal. We found out he has a very high palate and possibly a mild, posterior tongue tie. Luckily, he's getting plenty of milk, but we have a new technique for latching (which so far he hates - but is much better for me) and lots of exercises to practice getting him to stick his tongue out, sucking exercises, and massage techniques for his face/jaw. We will also continue to go to the chiro weekly. I also need to have my midwife call in a special compounded nipple ointment (developed my Jack Newman in Canada) because I have such deep fissures that could get infected. She made me feel so much better telling me stories about how all 4 of her kids were so different and she had the most trouble with her 3rd. I was seriously feeling dumb for not being able to figure this out since I just nursed DS1 for over 2 years. She also said it's hard to go from nursing a toddler who can essentially help themselves, to nursing an infant who has to be guided and helped with latch, etc. Hopefully all these tricks will help us! If not, we'll see a cranial-sacral therapist and as a last resort an ENT to have his tongue evaluated.
I don't know where today went! I had a bunch of errands I needed to do but ran out of time. Looks like I'll be attempting them with 2 kiddos tomorrow!
