OH! MY! GOD!
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:
EIGHT POUNDS TWO OUNCES
(For those of you who are metrically minded: 3.7 kg)
