I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get a Lactation Consultant Appointment the day before Thanksgiving. As usual William cried during his prefeeding weigh in.
This picture of him during weigh in just cracks me up. While he is not using the right fingers to make a rude gesture, upon first glance it appears he is giving The Bird.
Under ideal conditions William would be hungry for this session. Unfortunately he had a hunger driven meltdown before we left and I reluctantly put him to the breast. This was no doubt part of why he did not take in a lot during feeding.
Donna made sure we reviewed holds and latches. I fed him with the football hold on the right side and a more traditional hold on the left.
As supply is still an issue she has now recommended I switch to Galactic Gold which has several herb ingredients in it. She has had many moms have success with it.
Galactic Gold comes in a bottle with an eye dropper and one bottle has a six day supply as it is taken four times a day. Donna says clients for whom this works see significant results in a week or so, and I hope I’m part of that group.
