    Smile So I met Dr Newman today

    and he thinks my problems are flow rate and supply. I knew supply could be a concern but I knew nothing about flow rate.

    He doesn't doubt thrush was an issue in the past but thinks my current pain is caused by the constant pulling Nate's doing while nursing.

    He suggested breast compressions while nursing and showed me how. And as soon as he did it Nate stopped pulling and started swallowing regularly. I will also have to build my supply up with meds.

    Dr Newman also squeezed and shot milk clear across the room! lol

    Thanks to the Vesta Center for setting it up!

    Glad you got some answers and some helpful info! I met him yesterday (also thanks to the Vesta gals!) and got so much helpful information. My DD drank so well this morning that she actually took 2oz. less of her formula than what she normally takes! He is a very funny man - and I love his laid back attitude. It is so stressful to have BF issues, so I love how he's just all about helping the mom to relax and enjoy the experience and not get caught up with numbers and times and everything that the books tell you you *should* be doing!
