Latch-on Breast Feeding Begins!

I've been busy these past 2 days. I was at the hospital during the afternoon to try latching Reyes on for one of his feeds, his weight fell from 2010g to 1985g and is now 2022g and taking in 42 ml every 3 hrs. The nurse commented that the initial drop in weight is due to the introduction of bottle that takes up more of his energy. I also did some diaper change for him, practicing since I haven't done it in years. hee.

He suckles pretty well, but he falls asleep so frequently that it seemed like its more comfort suckling than suckling to satisfy his hunger. Since I dunno how much he is taking in, I'll have to feed on demand when he is home.

I was told that he should be able to disharge on Fri if nothing arises so I had to attend the CPR training today. I had to call my mum to join me last minute as I thought having 2 person learning it would be more beneficial than one.

Now, I'm compiling the list of to-buys and I'll be off on a shopping spree tomorrow to get the necessities for Reyes. a little anxious about him coming home but I bet I'll be much busier... :)
