Thanks - I'll go look for the pictures.
nursing did not get off to a good start. we were having the same problems as we did with ds1. he has a very recessed chin, short tongue, and i have the big boobs. not a good combo. he was not having sucess with being able to open enough to latch on properly. i was bleeding and blistered by the end of the first week. i ended using a nipple shield over the weekend until i could see the lc on monday. i am so happy she worked her magic! i used the shield for 2 months with ds1, but we only used it this time for 2 days! woo hoo!
baby did lose almost a pound, but is gaining steady now. but of course mw and lc agreed that an 11 pound baby has a little more to spare than a smaller one! so i think we are good to go!
