On feeding

So if he latches better he'll get richer milk, be more full (so need feeding less often) have less runny poo, and my oversupply should reduce making it easier to feed him in the first place. I just have to get him latching better :/

Will keep trying for another week with the assorted tips from breast feeding sessions and the nice lactation consultant at the Shelford baby group today - if we're still struggling then I'll ask my GP at his 6-8 week check if they can refer to have his (minor) tongue tie snipped. Don't want to resort to even very inordinate surgery unless I have to though.
