Congrats! No real experience to share, but just wanted to say it sounds like a good plan. Make sure you do lots of skin to skin to encourage LO to nurse frequently and help your milk come in. You're doing a great job, so hang in there!

Don't forget you aren't looking for that many poops in the first week. If I remember correctly, it should be 1 BM in the first 24 hours of life. Then, 2 on day two, 3 on day three.... I just can't remember when you stop looking for this pattern. Maybe someone else can help!

opheliainwaders my DD2 was also Coombs+ (jaundice due to different blood types). Did she get triple light therapy? That's what eventually got her bilirubin levels down for us. I agree that skin to skin as much as possible should be a priority, even when she doesn't seem like she wants to latch. Have you tried laid back nursing so that gravity can help her latch? One week longer in GA can make a huge difference in breastfeeding so don't be surprised if you notice differences this time around. I'm sure your meeting with an ibclc will be helpful. Good luck!
