Anyway, he is sleeping now. He has taken some breastmilk in a syringe that is fitted with a rubber tube on the end. Until he learns how to rework his mouth, and can begin breastfeeding again, he will use this syringe. It actually should only be a few hours, to give the swelling a chance to go down, before he can try to breastfeed.
Other than that, things are quiet. He fusses a lot when he is awake, for two main reasons. First, he has these "no-nos" on his arms, that prevent him from bending at the elbow, so as to prevent him from hitting, scratching, or pulling at his mouth. Secondly, he has been given firm orders that he is to have "no binkie for three weeks". Sad Sad Day for us. He loves his binkie. We'll see how he tolerates that.
