Last night we went to a parent meeting which focused on feedings, and we got a lot of really useful information.
I talked to another lactation consultant after the meeting. She recommended getting a six hour stretch of sleep at night again, and also doing kangaroo (skin to skin) care once a day. If things don't start to improve soon, she can write me a prescription for a medication to produce more milk.
So today was my first day of skin-to-skin, where the mom reclines shirtless with the baby in only a diaper on her chest. Elliot fought it at first because he doesn't enjoy being on his tummy, but once he settled down, we relaxed together for a good hour. It was really nice. And boy, does he look cute in just his dipe! I can't wait to get him home and into his cloth diapers.
Kangaroo care is supposed to help regulate the baby's breathing as well as stimulate milk production... and we could use help in both of these areas, so let's hope it works!
