Learning how to do it right

Today we met with a lactation nurse and I learned down to the smallest details on several ways on how to hold and feed Keira.  The nurse then taught Mike what to look for to make sure it was correct and she even gave Keira a special pacifier to help her work on developing a correct suck.  She let us know that it will take lots of time teaching Keira what to do and enforcing it to break this habit of sucking her tongue that she developed in the womb.  She also told me that I'll need to express milk for a bit in order to help Keira get a good hold and will be coming by tomorrow to show us how to use my pump tomorrow.  This is personally really cool since she doesn't need to do it and at that time we didn't even have the pump with us.
