First Doctor Visit

Ava and Carli both had a doctors visit last Tuesday. This was Ava's follow up on her release from the hospital and Carli's ear follow up. Both passed with flying colors. I think Carli hollered more than Ava did. Carli got upset when the doctor looked at her and when she looked at Ava! Already a protective big sister!

With Carli I had no troubles with nursing, but with Ava we were struggling a bit with her latch. It is very painful. I told the pedi about it and she was an angel and called over to ETMC and set me with the lactation consultant right then. So Ava and I headed over and learned that she rolls her bottom lip when she latches and this is b/c the muscle on her bottom lip is tight. With time (2-4 weeks) it should loosen up a lot, but until then I have to try to unroll it once she is latched on (not an easy feat) and simply endure the pain! Ouch! I went ahead and called my friend, Amber's Mom, out in CA who is a lactation consultant too. She gave me some other pointers and we are doing a bit better now. Helps to hear that all will be okay from someone you know vs someone you don't.
