Breastfeeding Success!

Truman and Mommy had a date with the lactation consultant this afternoon. Truman did beautifully and our LC said he was doing some great nutritive sucking. We had about a 20 minute session and even burped afterwards -- a very tiny, cute burp.

Afterwards, about halfway through his regular tube feed, he decided to have a couple of big desats. Mommy has a suspicion, as do some of the nurses, that his tummy was just full.

YAY to breastfeeding success! I know, speaking from experience here, that it can sometimes be VERY difficult. I'm so glad it is going well - it is such a rewarding experience for both mommy and baby! (again, speaking from experience here!) Congrats!

Oh, fantastic! Well done. Lots of full-termers have a tough time breastfeeding, so good job Truman! Sorry about the desats ... I know I get tired when I have a full belly, too. :-)

That is incrediably awesome! It brings tears to my eyes (happiness of course) to hear that he is doing so well. I look forward to the updates of his progress..It wont be long til he's home and life will be somewhat normal.
