This is kian Eugene Burton. Born 7/2 @ 4:16 am, weighing 6#11oz. I was 37 weeks and a day :) he's latching perfectly, my milk came in at the hospital (48 hours stay to make sure he was ok). I bf ds1 and don't remember this beginning engorgement! My boobs have red splotches and are really hard, I'm worried about mastisis so I'm trying to pump enough to relieve the pain. He's barely able to empty enough out to give any sort of relief and when latching I have to squeeze my best down so he can get a full latch. He's not as hungry a my last one.... I've been pumping my left side for 12 minutes, the pain and lumps are still there. I tried to massage them and will be pumping again until I can clear the duct (thinking that's the problem) but I REALLY didn't want to pump this early!!! He's almost 3 days old! My milk isn't completely milKk, it still has a mix of colostrum in it! Babies weight when we left the hospital was 6#7oz. I need some advice... I know cabbage leaves but I'm really worried about these hard spots... Could it just be my glands swollen our is it an actual problem? Ds won't latch atm... He's also had 4 poops today and is done with the beginning gross tar stuff. Now it's green and watery.
