Emerson went on a near-24 hour nursing strike, which was so sad and scary. He wouldn't even take spooned breastmilk, and the bit we could get down, he would just spit back up. The doctor thought his thrush was likely hurting his tongue and his tummy. He spent most of the day crying inconsoluably.

At 3 this morning DH was able to get an ounce in him by spoon, and Emerson kept it down! Then at 4 he finally nursed!!!! Then he peacefully slept four hours, woke, and nursed again! Now he is sleeping again. I plan to spend the day in bed with him so he can sleep and nurse as much as he wants.

SUCH a relief that he is nursing again! Praise God!
Wife to my supportive DH and WAHM to DD Nora (06/10), DS Emerson (07/12), and baby #5 (due 5/16) and my precious babies in heaven: Bennet (died 8/15 at 12 months) and Lucy (miscarried 7/15).
