It's been a roller coaster so far. We came home yesterday.
My milk has come in and Caleb is having a hard time latching on since then. Last night I had a breakdown because he was screaming everytime I brought him to the breast. I finally got him to latch and we had a few hours of sleep. Today he went 6 hours without feeding, he is so sleepy and upset when awake and trying to latch.
He also has jaundice so we had to go to the Dr. today. His number went up again to a 14.9 so we have to go back tomorrow. His weight is down to 6lbs9oz (from 7lbs5oz) so they are also concerned about that. We go back tomorrow to see how he's doing.
I've kind of learned a system after talking to the lactation consultant at Rex and we've had several successful feedings. I'm also supplementing him with expressed milk after nursing to try to keep him full and help with the jaundice.
Overall I'm doing okay, but its so hard not to be frustrated with everything. I know it's all "normal" but that doesn't make it any harder to deal with. I'm just praying he has improvements at the doctor tomorrow!
