Liam has gained a lb in a week. :)
Babies in my family tend to start out small, then they get super cute and super chubby. :)



How is everyone?

If you have any BFing questions I can try to answer them. So far we have made it through both Mastitis and Thrush and are still going strong.

Aww congrats! It was a busy weekend in the hospital when we were there too! The night I had Zoey, there were about 5 other babies born and atleast a couple more the next day! I had to quite and breathe right in the MIDDLE of pushing due to my dr being the only one there and another girl being closer to delivering. Yea, that wasn't fun!

Well we kinda had a meltdown at the hospital, my milk still hasn't come in and I have had very little colostrum come in ( same issue I had with my first) and she was just go hungry last night and we have been having problems getting her to latch on, she did good once she was latched it was just getting there that was causing the problems, so for the time being we are on formula. I go back to the hospital on monday so they can check her out and check out my milk supply, and also show me how to use the manual pump that way even if I cant get her to latch if my milk does come in I can still pump it and give it to her. Ever since shes been on the formula though shes been like a totally different baby, barely ever cries, last night was our first night home and it wasnt bad at all, she only woke up twice to eat and be changed and me and her got quite a bit a sleep to my surprise. Here she is though :) sorry if I didnt post them right lol

I was think like why the hell did you guys schedule 2 inductions AT THE SAME TIME!! I guess they didnt think that we would both be like neck and neck during our labor, they were lucky I didnt push her out like I wanted to, having to not push when I had the biggest urge to was probably the hardest part. The nurse told me to just start pushing and then immediatly told me to stop cause she was just way too close and he was just finishing up with the other girl. Totally worth it though in the end :)

My thoughts exactly! The nurse told me she didn't want to have to catch her if I kept pushing before the dr came back but I just didn't care whether she wanted to or not, she's lucky I was being cooperative. But YES completely worth all of it! :D

I think my dr said if I was filling a pad every hour I needed to call them.

I was all ready to hit you up if I hit a snag with breast feeding but all is going well, the nurse said he is a breast baby. :) Hes already up 2 lbs in 2 weeks and he eats constantly. Latches like a pro, granted I have to use a nipple shield. Thats the only problem. I try all the time but my nipples are just to small for him it seems.



Anyway, Im super impressed you made it through mastitis and thrush. SUPER WOMAN!
