OK so the other day I posted about how my son is never satisfied after nursing, the amount of milk I'm getting when I pump and and nipple soreness. So I went to see a lactation consultant at the hospital to "check" everything. I was happy to know that my positioning is great, his latch was perfect, no infection, his sucking is strong, she even checked his mouth to make sure he is not tounge tied. everything was good...except whe we weighed him after a 20 min feed we realized he did not even transfer 1oz of milk out of me. My supple was not a concern as my milk is plentiful, I was even leaking as he nursed! For some reason he is not getting the milk out! She said that I should take him to a Speech Language Pathologist to have his mouth and it's functioning checked as there might be a problem that could later develop to be speech related, then again it could be nothing... But then why can't he get my milk out? I WAS DEAD SET ON NURSING HIM. She suggested that I continue to bring him to the breast so he does not forget how to nurse then pump and bottle feed him. She also said as he grows he may feed more effectively. SO i have been pumping every 3 hours 24 hrs a day to have enough breast milk for him. It's is very tiring but I will do it! Have any of you other mothers had this or a similar problem with your child... How did it turn out?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
