At today's pediatrician appointment, Thea weighed in at a whopping 6 lbs, 14 oz. That's a gain of 11 ounces in 6 days. And I was worried that she wasn't gaining fast enough!
The doctor gave us the okay to follow her cues instead of sticking to the three hour feeding schedule - hopefully this will let me get a tad more sleep at night.
So, now we'll work on getting her off the shield. We meet with the lactation consultant next Wednesday, if we haven't figured it out on our own by then.
Wish us luck!
