Is this normal diaper count for four days old?
So far today he's had three dirty diapers (3a, 7a, and again just now). No just wet diapers yet.
Due to shallow latch the first day I have a slightly cracked nipple but the pain only lasts a second or two upon latch. He has a good latch now. Some skin sloughed off my nipples this morning but no discomfort with it. He seems to be a champion nurser.
He's a big comfort nurser as well but I assume the more he's at the breast the more well established we will be. I've bf two other children but never made it past seven months. I'm setting small goals this time. Every day of nursing is another success in my book. Ultimate goal: one year minimum.
Just wondering if this all sounds good?
Milk came in night before last. Breasts are huge hard and very sore. Even with all the nursing they don't soften. He's obviously getting milk bc its on his chin and he's satisfied when he pushes away. Tried pumping this morning and got three oz total. Will this even out soon on e my body realizes how much we need?
