See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Okay, all you knowledgable ladies. I am due to deliver any day and will be having a c-section on Tuesday if no delivery before then (long story). . .With my last baby, she was "big" and the hospital's policy was to test her blood sugar before each of the first 3 nursing sessions. I suspect this little guy is also big so I see that coming with him as well. She ended up being normal but I know they would likely push formula if the reading came back wonky. My question is, if his blood sugar comes back low (I'm guessing that was their concern) I am not open to formula supplementation. . .but what do I do and why? I want to be prepared to fight just in case. I think I recall reading that skin to skin and frequent nursing is gold standard? Anyone?
