Baby #3 & a few questions

Baby #3 should be here in March.

DD1 was born a month early & had to stay in the NICU. I pumped for her, but she was given breast milk through a feeding tube & then in a bottle. Nursing her was not easy, but we made it 9 months.

DD2 was born 3 weeks early & nursed like a champ from the beginning. We made it a year.

This time, my goal is a year, but I'm not opposed to going longer.

A few questions before the baby gets here...

What's the rule for newborns & diaper counts?

Should I check for tongue/lip tie or just wait & see how she does? What would I be looking for?

I just want to be prepared in the hospital & with this pediatrician should things go differently than last time.

So, day 1 = 1 diaper; day 2 = 2 diapers & so forth?

Newborns and diapers...1 per day of age until a week then 6 a day

as far as tongue tie..if tongue doesnt move from the floor of the mouth, if nipple looks like a tube of lipstick, if top lip curls under when latching have it checked out

Diapers for each day of life until 1 week then 6. But your looking for close to 4 poops a day.

You can check for an obvious tongue tie by just looking under the tongue. A posterior tie would be hard to see but you can easily check for a lip tie which is often associated with posterior ties.
