She was VERY ready to eat after cares. We settled in to nurse and once she got organized she nursed for about 28 minutes. It was very cool! I did talk to lactation about her tendency to "click" during letdown. We're thinking it is either a latch issue or a letdown issue. After she got done eating, we cuddled up for about an hour then I let her sleep in her bassinet for the remaining 45 minutes before her next round of cares.
Baby Girl had to get her shots during this care round. The shots were overstimulating and caused her to shut down. I cuddled her and we spent a couple of hours doing Kangaroo Care after the shots. I did try and let her nurse one more time, but she was still shut down from the shots. I didn't want to stress either of us out, so we decided to give her a tube feeding instead and I pumped.
