Yesterday Jennifer went to see a lactation consultant regarding Corinne''s weight gain and milk intake. It was a very valuable experience! Corinne now weighs 9 lb. 3.3 oz when her tummy is empty, and she weighed 9 lb. 6.2 oz after eating! She is taking in just slightly less that she probably needs, so Jen is using a hospital grade breast pump to help make a little extra. For now Corinne will receive that milk in bottles after she nurses, but hopefully the pump, combined with some herbal supplements, will boost Jen''s milk supply enough that Corinne is able to take in all she needs just from nursing.
By the way, Corinne''s weight gain indicates that she gained over 12 oz in 12 days, which is right on target!
