Quoting Emily Dickinson:" Yeah, we had no issues for the first like 10 days and then its once a day and she is SCREAMING like...there ... [snip!] ... so afraid I am going to take her to the doctor tomorrow for her 2 week check and she isn't going to be back at birth weight."


Don't stress if it isn't. They would like it to be...but if it isn't, it isn't always a huge deal. I went this really neat conference about BF on Friday, sooo much of what they tell you isn't exactly true. One of the speakers there, Dr. Jane Morton was showing us research about babies not gaining birth weight back in 2 weeks and how 2 weeks is the median time for BF babies but it can range from 10-17 days without concern.

Did they say anything about pooping?



She hasn't gone in 24 hours. :( She is peeing enough and nursing constantly.

Yes, that color comfort was more important than amount. "taxi-cab mustard yellow" by day 5. Some breastfed babies go up to a week! :shock: breast milk can be so efficiently used by her wittle body, there is little to no waste.



This lady is brilliant, experienced and just really neat. Stanford and Chapel Hill are doing a lot of interesting and new research with breastmilk and breastfeeding. Did you know that fluid intake does not directly effect milk production? I had no idea! Neither does a specific calorie intake.

This quiz is for slightly younger babies but this is her checklist. http://newborns.stanford.edu/Breastfeeding/FeedingChecklist.html

Breast fed babies can go like 8-10 days before its a problem

Even though DD is not breast fed, during her bedtime feed around 730-8pm she screams and cries and that is her ONLY feed she will do this. She's 2 months old tomorrow and it's been going on for about 1.5 wks. I'm assuming it's a bit of collic or she just wants to be cuddled.
