Hungry Monkey

Sprout had a bit of a catch-up growth spurt this past weekend: Thursday he weighed 8 pounds 0.5 ounces, today he was 8 pounds 8.5 ounces. So now he's gained 18.5 ounces since we left the hospital 19 days ago. Whew.

I think he's getting tired of wearing the same newborn sleepers day in & day out. He wants to grow into all the 3-month-sized onesies & outfits he's gotten as gifts.

I'm still working on latch issues, sucking back herbal tinctures & lactation tea like there's no tomorrow & pumping after feedings, but I feel a little more positive about it all today. Seeing the midwife & getting reassurance that Linnaeus is healthy & fattening up helped. I also got a prescription for Domperidone, which I am hoping will be a magic bullet for my supply issues... Keep your fingers crossed for me.
