The past 2 weeks

Wow, time has flown! My little boy is getting so big already. We've had some issues breastfeeding that are caused by him being tongue tied, so we have an appointment this Thursday with an oral surgeon. The thing is that the string below his tongue has a hole in it, and the front piece is what is causing him not to be able to stick his tongue out enough, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to get it to break just by massaging it, but we still have the appointment scheduled just in case. His tongue issue has caused me to have mastitis, which is an infection in my breast caused by clogged milk ducts. It's not fun, in fact very painful at the beginning of the feeding. I'm on antibiotics though so hopefully it will feel better soon.
I had a lactation consultant come out 2 this week to help me with our feeding issues. On Tuesday he weighed 8 lbs 12 ounces, and Thursday when she came back he weighed 9 lbs 1 ounce!!!
K, my son calls to be fed, I must run.

Caitlin had to have that surgery too. Not a big deal and really helped her breastfeed. Mastitis is no fun. Had that too. Be careful I still get clogged ducts because of it. I had to put a heating pad on my breast and pump in order to get full relief and still have to massage with gusto when pumping daily.
