Miss Norah weighed in at 7lbs 8 oz today at her appt. she's only 4 oz under birth weight at 11 days old (up from 6.14 on Saturday !) we are slowly getting there but I need donor breast milk bad! I have one 4oz bag left and I'm not making enough yet. No one has responded on the Eats on Feets~Florida website after they told me to contact them. Argh!

I think it's the "It's forbidden, so now I want it" mentality Evangeline also has a little bit of a heat rash and what looks to be a laundry soap sensitivity. I ran out of the tide f&c that I had been using so I switched to Lulu's in the fluff. I loved it with my DS so when the cloth diaper store near me went out of business, I bought all they had in stock(about a years worth of soap) but Evangeline is breaking out in a rash from it

If only you didn't live so far away! I have 60-70 oz already stored up in my freezer for a rainy day. I usually pump about 8 oz a day between nursing.

Emerson had his first independent nap today! Woohoo! Lol It only lasted 45 minutes, but that was enough time for me to eat dinner and spend a little time with DH. Yay.

Emerson is SUCH a cuddle bug. I love it. But a little time away from mama is good too...at least for me. Our house is fallllllling apart...

I assure you that the dairy cravings will pass, I had them terrible when I went off dairy but after a couple weeks I didn't crave it anymore, and in fact I feel way better off dairy and don't intend to go back on it in the future. Hang in there mommas!

Ade had a heat rash too, but she just lives in a diaper and unsnapped onesie all day long(i fold it up like a shirt)


I think my milk supply dropped after all the IV fluids finally ran out of me. I was swollen like an elephant until a few days ago, and at the same time my body wasn't painfully swollen, Ade started to get extra cranky and want to nurse every 1 1/2-2hrs. I'm wondering if my supply can go down because I wasn't drinking enough water?? So I've been drinking a lot trying to make up for it. She still gives me a good 5-6hr sleep at night, but during the day she's a grump! Two wks old yesterday!

So since this was my first vaginal delivery, im learning all new things! Is it normal to sometimes feel like I'm going to...fall out...down there? Seriously, i was walking around Target and it was extremely painful! I felt like i need to just stop and hold things together lol

I was pretty swollen before and after birth and 4 days pp I did way to much and I totally felt like things were falling out. I have done lots of laying down this time because of a 5 day headache( and still going) so the rest of my body feels awesome now.

Green mucusy poop, rash on face, restless, cranky, sleeping poorly--should I call the ped? Or is this likely linked to thrush or the food sensitivity the ped already pointed out on Friday?

Poor baby is not happy.

That sounds like food sensitivity to me, particularly dairy. You could call anyway to make sure! Sorry mama I went through that with my first. No fun!
