November 9, 2010

Today we did a little experiment.  We weighed Sam before putting him on the breast, and then weighed him again after he spent 30 minutes sucking.  Well... it is now official... I have a breastfeeding baby!  We were able to see a slight gain in weight in those 30 minutes- meaning Sam is not only latching and sucking, but swallowing!  Woo hoo!
