The visit with the lactation consultant went really well today. We were able to get my little man to latch on one side. He fought it some, but in the end, he latched. He nursed for quite some time. We then tried to switch to the left side and he would not latch without the shield and cried hysterically. So, we grabbed the shield and he went to town. After about 5-10 minutes, we put him back to the first side (with the shield) where he nursed until he fell asleep. We started the feeding at 1:30 and figured he would wake up by 3:30, but at the moment, he's still sitting in his car seat fast asleep.

Now, when I went in her office, we intended to weigh him. As soon as I pulled him out of the carseat, I realized that the "gas" he had in the car was really a massive poop. Literally covered. To the soles of his feet covered. I think the backup has been cleared out.

Once he was cleaned up, we weighed him:


(For those of you who are metrically minded: 3.7 kg)

He's a giant. Now if only he wouldn't poop ALL AT ONCE!!
Wowowowowowowowowow!!!!! That is so great!!!
All such great news. I have been reading since just after you gave birth and I am constantly in awe of the stregth and strides the little letter seems to keep making!
Keep up the great work! Lowercase is soooo cute! And I went through something very similar with our 31 weeker... it took 2.5 weeks to wean him off the nipple shield. Thought it might never happen, but it did. So well in fact, that he started completely refusing the bottle after a month being home! They certainly keep you on your toes!
OH MY GOD! That's incredible. IN. CREDIBLE.

Congrats, you guys.
Wow! Wow on everything - the poop, the weight, the latch. Hooray little w!!!!
Yay! That's wonderful news. You must be all smiles. :)
