Updates and stuff

Sorry for being slow with getting babies into the arrivals sticky.

We're dealing with weight gain issues (he grows, but slowly) here so I've been needing to pump to get extra milk into him. Only pumping sucks while generally failing to suck milk out of me so I've been mostly reading about pumping and trying stuff out and taking golacta and fenugreek.

And I go back to work (only two days a week thank goodness) Monday after next. So I need to get him growing and a supply for then.

I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. Are you getting hands on help from an IBCLC?

Yep, and the next day we went in for a weight check and he was back up on his new curve.

Same issues here! Have you tried a hospital grade pump? I've been renting one since my girl was born, I tried the consumer pump but there's no comparison!
