Now, when I open my freezer there are bags and bags of "liquid gold" for Tucker while we continue to try to get him to nurse and increase my low supply. He is doing so great. It is such a relief to know we have several weeks (maybe even 2 months?) worth of milk for him.
The good news -- just yesterday (1/8/10) Tucker latched and nursed for about 10 minutes. It was the first time he's done it "for real" (he's 8 weeks old). [One of the things that I believe made a big difference was getting cranio-sacral work from an osteopath -- I recommend it to moms struggling with a non-nurser!] It will still be a slow learning process from here, and I'll need to continue to supplement to make up for my supply, but it was such a joy to see him nurse, at long last. I think he enjoyed it too.
Thank you Kelly!! My hero!
