We're back form a visit with our lactation consultant. In her professional opinion, Nicole is producing an abundant supply of milk! So abundant that we only need to feed Sprout from one side at a feeding. She gave us a few other tips which should help out our sleep quite a bit:
1) Let sleeping babies lay:: if she's sleeping comfortably don't change her.
2) Read her Bedtime stories:: okay not really, but she did say to wait 15-20 minutes between feeding and trying to put her to sleep.
3) Sprout probably isn't as hungry as she seems. Since Nicole's production is so good, sprout gets all she needs in 5 minutes. But she still has instinctual cravings to suck more. I've got ten typing fingers to let her nibble on.
Sprout also weighed in at a whoping 9 lbs 5 oz.
