I’ve already said I pump 8 times a day. That’s still true.
I also put BGL on the breast 4-5 times a day. We are both still learning, but I believe I can tell that she is getting stronger and better at what she’s trying to do.
I have been doing football hold exclusively. Today I tried cross cradle on the left side and had more success than ever before.
My left breast is known to be a curmudgeon of sorts. Unwilling to put out without A LOT of coaxing. BGL is not much of a coaxer yet.
I’ve had clogged milk ducts on the left. Pumped and pumped and pumped my way through that. Including a long and miraculous pumping session.
Thrush has now made an appearance. Ugh. There is discomfort. That’s for sure. Haven’t decided on a treatment yet. BGL is already being plied with nystatin. Hope it works for her. I have not been officially diagnosed but I’m pretty sure.
In spite of these challenges and annoyances, BGL is gaining weight: 4 lbs 9 oz at the doc this morning.
